Now, here's a person who deserves to be lashed....

The latest outrage from the religion of peace...thanks to James for sending this...

A British primary school teacher arrested in Sudan faces up to 40 lashes for blasphemy after letting her class of 7-year-olds name a teddy bear Muhammad.

Gillian Gibbons, a 54-year-old mother of two from Liverpool, was arrested at her lodgings at Khartoum's Unity High School yesterday, accused of insulting the Prophet of Islam.

Her colleagues said that they feared for her safety after reports that groups of young men had gathered outside the Khartoum police station where she was taken and were shouting death threats.

The Unity school is a Christian-run co-educational private school that teaches both Christians and Muslims and is popular with Sudanese professionals and expatriate workers.

Bishop Ezekiel Kondo, chairman of the school council, told The Times that the school was in dispute with authorities over taxes, and suggested that Ms Gibbons, who arrived in Khartoum in August, may have been caught up in that. "The thing may be very simple but there are people who are trying to make it bigger. It's a kind of blackmail," he said.

Another source at the school blamed another teacher, from a well-connected Khartoum family, who had raised the issue with the headmistress but was rebuffed and decided to complain.

Teachers at the school, in central Khartoum only a mile from the River Nile, said that Ms Gibbons had made an innocent mistake by letting her pupils choose their favourite name for the toy as part of a school project.

Robert Boulos, the Unity director, said that Mrs Gibbons was following a British National Curriculum course designed to teach young pupils about animals and their habitats. This year’s animal was the bear.

In September, she asked a girl to bring in her teddy bear to help the Year 2 class to focus and then asked the class to name the toy.

"They came up with eight names including Abdullah, Hassan and Muhammad. Then she explained what it meant to vote and asked them to choose the name," Mr Boulos said.

Twenty out of the 23 children chose Muhammad. Each child was allowed to take the bear home at weekends and asked to write a diary about what they did with the toy. Each entry was collected in a book with a picture of the bear on the cover, next to the message "My name is Muhammad"

Hey, anonymous #2, here's a moderate muslim for you. Just because you're uninformed doesn't mean everyone else is.

In all fairness the 20 out of 23 students should also get the lash since they voted for the name. It'll teach them a good lesson.

'Moderate Muslims' don't exist. Muslims in North America and Europe are thoroughly enjoying the attention and power being given to them by terrorists.

Muslim community leaders have leapt from obscurity into the corridors of power in the West, and government largesse has followed.

It doesn't pay to be moderate when you're dealing with wealthy cowards.

dan should reaslise its now the laughing stock of the planet.

PLUS, its further ruined islams immage with the stupid childish, pathetic attitude of wanting someone murdered because the children wanted the toy named after themselves (How may boys and men are called Mohummad eh?)

PLUS, the children and parents are in hiding because they fear reprisals and also because they commited a crime of "Talking to a westerner"

There is a muslim family in my street and they are SO damn fricking embaressed and humilliated at this insult at islam....

oh no, not the teddy being called mohummad and not the womand letting the kids name it...Oh no no no, they are humiliated at Sudans stupid (can we call them 'people' or just call them savages) psycoticness and calls for killing to slake their blood hunger for death and killing and slaughter and blood and more blood and what the hell....even more blood.

What the sudaneese dickheads are doing is whats insulting islam, by AGAIN making it violent over any tiny thing, even to say "Mohummad would love to see the sunset today, its so beautiful" would get you hanged/shot/beaten to death/whipped to death/stoned to death or whatever. They make him seem more holier than, they make him GOD Ceaser was seen as by the romans.

The family in my street think calling a teddy bear after one of the children in the classroom is quite cute. But they fear that these idiots have ruined any chance of islam having any free conversation about it in ANY way, even nutural or mention anything about islam or any name reguarding it being used for anything....even a common name like mohummad means chaos because of idiots.

Sad sad world.....Stop the planet, let me off!
