    Sudanese call for teddy bear teacher's death
    Political Correctness; Posted on: 2007-11-30 11:43:20 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    Thousands of Sudanese protesters, some brandishing swords and knives, demand the execution of British teacher Gillian Gibbons.

    Thousands of protesters, many brandishing clubs and swords, took to the streets of Sudan’s capital Friday, demanding the execution of a British teacher who let her students name a teddy bear Muhammad.

    Gillian Gibbons, 54, was moved from the women’s prison near Khartoum to a secret location for her protection, her lawyer said.

    Gibbons was found guilty Thursday of insulting Islam and sentenced to 15 days in jail. She was spared the more serious punishment of 40 lashes.

    That angered many in Khartoum, who rallied in Martyrs Square outside the presidential palace. Protesters waved sticks, knives, axes and swords.

    “Kill her, kill her by firing squad!” they chanted. “No tolerance, execution!”

    Others shouted, “Shame, shame on the U.K.”

    A cleric claimed Gibbons had intentionally insulted the Muslim faith.

    “This an arrogant woman who came to our country, cashing her salary in dollars, teaching our children hatred of our Prophet Muhammad,” Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karouri told worshippers at a Friday sermon.

    “Imprisoning this lady does not satisfy the thirst of Muslims in Sudan,” he said.

    Britain was working through diplomatic channels to try to free Gibbons.
