Update On Muhammad the Teddy Bear

Thankfully, the authorities in Sudan are reducing Gillian Gibbons (read previous post) punishment from the 40 lashes with a bamboo cane to 15 days in jail and deportation.

In response, thousands of Sudanese took to the streets in an armed mob and demanded Gibbons' death. The picture to the left and the following report are from the Associated Press:

Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear "Muhammad."

In response to the demonstration, teacher Gillian Gibbons was moved from the women's prison near Khartoum to a secret location for her safety, her lawyer said.

The protesters streamed out of mosques after Friday sermons, as pickup trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Gibbons, who was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in prison and deportation. She avoided the more serious punishment of 40 lashes.

Well said! Green Ink has a great cartoon of a MoTeddy, THAT would get the European Muzzies rioting too.

This would make a wonderful Ramadan gift. A New Dark Age is Dawning has a link to them for sale at the Cafe Press store.

Calling these ignorant freaks in Sudan human garbage is just too kind. Oh so peaceful, very SICK animals…

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
give a pig a prophet’s name

glorify the godly swine
and thank him for his bacon

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
outlaw all teddy bears

before some little kids
try to honor a prophet

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
pay your teachers with DEATH

for visiting to help out
your ungrateful country
