"Religion of peace" demands death for naming teddy bear Mohammed
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.

Hundreds of riot police were deployed as demonstrators massed in central Martyrs Square, outside the palace.

"Shame, shame on the UK," protesters chanted, and they called for Mrs Gibbons' execution, saying, "No tolerance: Execution," and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad."

The women's prison where Gibbons is being held is far from the site, as is the Unity High School where she taught, which is under heavy security protection.

Forgive me for my ethnocentrism and hemispherism, but...

I DON'T FUCKING GET THIS!!! Me and millions of others.

Don't get what - how this makes any logical, reasonable sense? In that case, I concur fully!

"...how this makes any logical, reasonable sense?"


Of course, the ideology of "let's kill who and what we don't like" is not exclusive to Muslims in Sudan. In fact, I think that way all the time. So, I am no better, sad to say :O(

I'm not far behind in terms of thinking that way sometimes, but that's a far cry from actually doing it - or being part of a mob demanding it.

I prefer it when stupid people commit mass suicide.

I guess... except when some of those people are making the choice between being relinquishing over all of their rights to humanity to a conquering nation (like the Jews of Masada, or some of the Indian tribes in the Americas). I do feel terribly for people who are so mentally ill or vulnerable that they allow themselves to be subjugated by an even more severely mentally ill person, like in the instance of the megalomaniac Jim Jones religious cult.

Well, since I'm not killing myself... yet... I might as well put those energies to better use. Let's see... Excuse me, ma'am? Yes, you, over there, with the no teeth?

*lopes off*
