Update 12/1 9:00am Eastern. A British Muslim member of Parliament and his delegation of dhimmis are flying to Sudan to negotiate a pardon. You know what they should be doing? Demanding the sentence be dropped and that Sudan apologize.
This is charming:
When a crowd of young men spotted a group of foreign reporters they began slashing their fingers across their throats. Police intervened as they advanced down the road.
Sheikh Abdul-Jalil al-Karuri, the imam of Abu-Shahid mosque and an adviser to President el-Bashir on cultural and religious matters, said that he had told his faithful that 15 days was an insufficient punishment for such a grave offence. “This happened on September 15 at the start of Ramadan, making it even more offensive,” he said.
The Sudanese Government has been happy to encourage antiWestern sentiment in part to resist efforts from the West to lecture Sudan about Darfur and deploy peacekeeping troops in the war-torn region.
Update 1:20pm Eastern. Blade of Peace…
Unbelievable dhimmi commentary of the day: We need to be more “sensitive.”
Update 11:53am. Photos of the “Kill Her!” demonstration in Khartoum are coming in. Looks like Islamic Rage Boy has new company: The Mo Bear Rage Mob. Via Yahoo! News…
Via an e-mail from M. Sliwa, former Sudanese slave and freedom fighter Simon Deng speaks out: “This is what they have been doing to non-Islamists in Northern Sudan for years and nobody has noticed, nobody has cared.”
Update: Funniest headline. Mockery is the best medicine.
If you want grounds for despair, read the entries on the BBC website, in which some British Muslims say that she should be punished; or read the entries from people in Sudan saying that the children should be punished.
Just a reminder of the kind of British Muslims Ms. Gibbons has to look forward to when Sudan deports her. Remember?
If it’s Friday, it’s call-for-an-infidel-execution day. The Mohammed Teddy Bear Blasphemy outrage continues, with the usual suspects doing the usual things–waving weapons, screaming bloody murder, and advocating death in the name of Mohammed:
Hundreds of protesters brandishing swords and sticks gathered outside Khartoum’s presidential palace Friday to vent their anger against a British teacher jailed for allowing children to name a teddy bear “Mohammed.”

About 600 Islamic demonstrators piled out of mosques, chanting: “By soul, by blood, I will fight for the Prophet Mohammed.” Some of the protesters demanded the teacher’s execution, according to The Associated Press.
The agency reports that some chanted: “No tolerance: Execution,” and “Kill her, kill her by firing squad.”
The latest reports peg the marchers’ numbers in the thousands. “Tiny minority.” Uh-huh.
The marchers took to the streets after Friday prayers to denounce the sentence as too lenient.
The protesters gathered in Martyrs Square, outside the presidential palace in the capital, many of them carrying knives and sticks.
Marchers chanted “Shame, shame on the UK”, “No tolerance – execution” and “Kill her, kill her by firing squad”.
Hundreds of riot police were deployed but they did not break up the demonstration.
Because they believe in free speech…for jihadists.
From a practitioner of the Religion of Peace:
“Imprisoning this lady does not satisfy the thirst of Muslims in Sudan. But we welcome imprisonment and expulsion,” the cleric, Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karouri, a well-known hard-liner, told worshippers. “This an arrogant woman who came to our country, cashing her salary in dollars, teaching our children hatred of our Prophet Muhammad,” he said.
