KHARTOUM, Sudan - A British teacher jailed for insulting Islam after allowing her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad was released Monday when Sudan's president pardoned her, a British Embassy spokesman said.
The conviction of Gillian Gibbons under Sudan's Islamic Sharia law shocked Britons and many Muslims worldwide. It also inflamed passions among many Sudanese, some of whom called for her execution.

Paranoid religion -- nothing can be more dangerous.
And note that our valiant media, in the headline, ratified this event as an insult to Islam. Disgusting!
Can't think of anyone less threatening than a first grade teacher and her innocent 6 year old students.

There was no insult.
Islam is deranged.
Islam is a mental illness. Don't expect anything other than irrationality from these people.
Thank God (the real God) that she is free. May she have a safe trip home.
You see, Islam IS a ROP. They are just misunderstood. I do not want to read any more nasty comments from you guys and gals.
I’ve wondered about the safety of those little kids who actually proposed and voted on the name. I would guess they are scared; it would be traumatizing. I’m glad hey don’t have to witness their teacher being stoned to death.
The West continues to believe they can negotiate with this group.
I believe I have heard many dumbocrates declare; "If we can just sit down and talk to them, they will really understand that we are good people."
Deranged, and in this instance stupid as well. I trust the British Muslims who intervened on her behalf pointed out that in English-speaking countries, naming a teddy bear after someone is a sign of affection for the person, not an insinuation that the person is ursine.
Folks, never forget this is the country George Clooney wants us to invade on behalf of a province known as ‘Darfur’.
Only airheads from Hollywood can come up with hating Bush for fighting Islamofacism, and at the same time demand we invade a Islamofacist regime....(eyes rolling)
“The case also sparked criticism from many Muslims in the West” — well, I wouldn’t go THAT far. I did read one statement from one person. It is Religion as Usual for Islam.
Islam is an insult to humanity.
The “believers” in Sudan act no differently than the “Denied “ minorities, kool aid drinkers of the MSM, Daily Communards and “Truthers 9/11”.
Now excuse me, I have to go out in the yard and pickup the “Mark Cubans” my dog left in the grass.
Those six year olds weren’t innocent. They named a teddy bear Mohammed.
(Seriously, with all we know of Islam, this shouldn’t surprise us, but I found myself more incensed and outraged over this one than any recent incident. Thanks be to God she’s headed for home.)
Gillian must have been terrified.
Happy she's going home.
Are we to assume from this statement that all of those screaming-weapon carrying idiots in the streets screaming for the teachers death were representatives of the Sudanese government? B.S.!
The MOST ludicrous thing about Muslim anger over the naming of that innocent inanimate and harmless Teddy Bear “Mohammad” as insulting the “Prophet” and Islam — is the name Mohammad being given to all the ignorant and murderous assholes throughout the world of Islam!
Do NOT those murderous bastards insult the “Prophet”, or are they following the path of the “Prophet”????
Which is it people?
Is Islam a religion of peace, or a “religion” of murder, mayhem and ignorance???
The evidence supports the latter.
As long as folks remain in denial about Islam these incidents will continue to shock.
See anything wrong with that wording?
Shouldn't it be: "A Bristish teacher accused of insulting
She did not insult Islam - the accusations of barbaric jihardists does not make a thing true...
Or: "A British teacher who allegedly insulted..." (The famous "allegedly" prefaces every one accused of of the least of crimes until the time they are convicted - it's journalistic 'law' to keep from being sued. Maybe this poor, beleaguered lady should sue AP for slander - she'll likely need funds to go into hiding for some years.
Did they behead the bear???
She will continue to be terrified - home is overrun with muzzies and it's jihadists - she is marked for execution...
many? - that is a completely made up.
How about some, very few, a couple or just 19 (the # at the only recorded protest in Britian).
islam is a cult. Nothing more, nothing less. A long time ago, I decided to stop using uppercase letters when talking about islam, mohammed, or anything related to that cult. To do so would be acknowledging them as a legitimate religious body. THEY ARE NOT THAT! They are a single-mided murdering, always offended, bunch of thugs that use intimidation to forward their agenda. All of us here should stop rendering respect toward those 7th century throwbacks. Respect is earned. To this date, they HAVEN’T EARNED ANY.
She let them VOTE. That's the real crime.
Can't have them grow up to be uppity...
She was convicted.
True - by a barbaric society - does that make her guilty? I think not, and for the AP to state that she DID insult Islam is to give credence to Shari Law -
WE, of the so-called free world, stop acquiescing and molly coddling these barbarians or we are sunk...
She did NOT insult Islam - and the AP should not have so stated that she did
Siege is not the solution...
Exercise caution. Some of them may be a bit mushy.
Has anyone told you that you are as gullible as they come? If not, let me have the unpleasant duty.
Maybe it was sarchasm, the gap between sarcasm and its intended recepient...
If not meant as sarcasm, then I'm with you
1. Is it really necessary to get nasty over a sarcstic reply to what I believed was a sarcastic remark by you?
2. If your remark, giving people orders about what they can and cannot say in order to meet with your approval, was not sarcasm as I thought, then you can for damned sure shove it where the sun doesn't shine.
3. And, I can imagine how unpleasant your nastiness is.
See post # 35.
I didn't think it was either. Thus my post without a saec ID to a person whom I thought wouldn't need one. But I guess he too gullible to recognize sarcasm when he sees it.
I blame the teddy bear,
you just can't trust 'em.
You'd better be a girl, or this "smooch" thing -- uh ... well, never mind.
Things have come to a pretty pass when you can't even trust your Teddy Bear. Life isn't worth living anymore. Gooodbye, cruel world.
***another double, bartender***
NO AID TO SUDAN! We could cut our defict down by CUTTING ALL aid to any MUSLIM COUNTRIES! SAUDI ARABIA being the #1 host to Wahabi Terrorist training schools....
35 threads and still no war.
Those demonstrating in the streets of Darfur ARE the moderate islamic arabs.
I'm not. OTOH, I do live fairly near San Fransisco...
You said — “Islam is a mental illness. Don’t expect anything other than irrationality from these people.”
Well, I don’t agree that it’s a mental illness, as that lessens the realization (on the part of the “Western world”) of the actual nature of their “thinking” in regards to their religion and how they are simply doing what is “fundamental” and natural and required in their own “worldview”.
It’s not a mental illness *at all*. It’s a “worldview” that differs from ours. One has to realize that.
NOW, having said that — I must say that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob says that since He is the One and Only and True Creator God of the universe, that means that those people are following a “false god” — but so are a lot of other people in the world following a false god. How about Hindus (and their thousands and perhaps millions of false gods). That doesn’t make them insane — but it does mean that they are rejecting the One True Creator God of the universe, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
And that’s the “deception of Satan” as he’s been described in God’s word. So, while they may be “deceived” (yet not “insane”), and still in their sins — they are following their own religion and are not what one would call insane (i.e., mentally ill) at all.
There are people who might call Christians “mentally ill” for maintaining the truth of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, in complete contradiction to all we know of reproduction in a woman and the fact that it has never happened elsewhere at any time in the history of mankind.
And then, there are people who might call Christians “mentally ill” for maintaining the truth of the matter that once one has died and completely disintegrated in the ground, that at a specific future time, they will be resurrected, in bodily form, once again, having the same character and being that they’ve had all along, having never ceased existing all this time that their body completely disintegrated in the grave.
Anyone who does not believe in and/or follow the Messiah of Israel and adhere to the Word of God (as He has given us) is deceived, to be sure — but they are not necessarily insane or mentally ill (although there do exist mentally ill and insane people in this world). So, I’m sorry — your reference to them being insane is simply an ignorant statement and not one that reflects reality.
Can’t.., can’t.., can’t we all get along?
*sniff* I even offered to kiss and make up...
No comment — it would only lead to bloodshed.
