As many as 10,000 insanely barbaric protesters are demanding blood:
Thousands of Sudanese, many carrying knives and sticks, have taken to the streets of Khartoum calling for the execution of British school teacher Gillian Gibbons, jailed over a teddy bear.
Crowds demonstrated outside the presidential palace, saying the 15-day prison sentence imposed on Mrs Gibbons for allowing her class to call a teddy bear Mohammed was too lenient.
The protesters streamed out of mosques after sermons, as pick-up trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Mrs Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool.
According to MP Boris Johnson It doesn’t sound like Muslims back home are any more sympathetic:
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.
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.
America is to blame:
Sheikh Hussein Mubarak told thousands of faithful gathered for the Muslim day of prayer that the court’s “verdict was lenient out of fear of criticism from human rights organisations, America and the West”.
You had to see that coming. Comments like that just illustrate the underlying political nature of these protests.
