The Religion of Peace, Yet Again...

To the long list of things that make Muslims seethe with rage, riot and scream for blood, we can now add names given to teddy bears by Muslim children. And nothing will satisfy Muslim thirst for blood.

Thousands of people have marched in the Sudanese capital Khartoum to call for UK teacher Gillian Gibbons to be shot.

Mrs Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, was jailed by a court on Thursday after allowing children in her class to name a teddy bear Muhammad.

She was sentenced to 15 days for insulting religion, and she will then be deported.

The Foreign Office was in contact with Sudan's government overnight and is due to repeat demands for her release.

'Kill her'

The marchers took to the streets after Friday prayers to denounce the sentence as too lenient.

The protesters gathered in Martyrs Square, outside the presidential palace in the capital, many of them carrying knives and sticks.

Marchers chanted "Shame, shame on the UK", "No tolerance - execution" and "Kill her, kill her by firing squad".

Hundreds of riot police were deployed but they did not break up the demonstration.

The Foreign Office said it was seeking more details about the protest.

The mindset of the average Muslim is so obviously infantile that their actions are almost beyond parody. But the Teddy Bear crisis in Sudan should serve as yet another reminder (as if any more should have been neccesary after September 11, 2001) of why Islam and the cultures it has spawned are wholly alien and incompatible with Western Civilization and its Enlightenment values, and positive reason for not admitting and more Muslims to Western countries, while encouraging those already here to leave.
