KHARTOUM, Sudan: Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, protested Friday outside the presidential palace in Khartoum, demanding the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad.

The protesters streamed out of mosques after Friday sermons, as pick-up trucks with loudspeakers blared messages against Gillian Gibbons, the teacher who was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in prison and deportation.

They massed in central Martyrs Square, outside the palace, for about an hour, while hundreds of riot police deployed nearby to keep control, though they did not attempt to disrupt the rally. "Shame, shame on the U.K.," protesters chanted.

They burned pictures of Gibbons and called for her execution, saying, "No tolerance: Execution," and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad."

During Friday sermons, the Muslim cleric at Khartoum's main Martyrs Mosque denounced Gibbons, saying she intentionally insulted Islam but he did not call for protests.

"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 is an arrogant woman who came to our country, cashing her salary in dollars, teaching our children hatred of our Prophet Muhammad," he said.
I've only got a few things to say... damn it's 11pm on a Friday night and I'm still at work... so, it'll be brief.

1. Why the hell would a white, Christian woman want to be in a god forsaken place that despises women, like Sudan in the first place?

So, even if she didn't name the teddy Muhammad, she's a dumb git to even go there. It's almost as dumb as a big group of Korean female Christian evangelists going to Afghanistan.

2. How come these people are so fanatically angry at a harmless teddy bear being named Muhammad, but they do absolutely nothing about thieves, robbers, murderers, rapists and corrupt politicians named Muhammad? Aren't human filth who call themselves Muhammad infinitely and exponentially more insulting to Islam than a stuffed bear?

How come they don't send any hit squads to Malaysia and help us get rid of some corrupt politicians also named Muhammad? How come they don't go after the parents of these bastards... who had the balls to name their children Muhammad but not the quality & upbringing to raise them to be honest & decent human beings?

You know what, we've even got a particularly crooked one who has 2 (TWO) Muhammads in his name. Doubly insulting and much more deserving of a Sudanese firing squad than that ignorant white woman... don't you think?

Look on the bright side: Blasphemy hasn't been so popular since the Inquisition. Everybody's doing it. Have you got what it takes to be a world-class blasphemer? The Bayou's Gator has prepared a little pop quiz to help you judge your SQ (*Sacrilege Quotient). Maybe your readers would like to knwo!
