Teddy Bear Teacher

FOXNews reported British teacher Gillian Gibbons was convicted of insulting Islam for letting her pupils name a teddy bear Muhammad and sentenced to 15 days in prison and deportation from Sudan, one of her defense lawyers said Thursday.
That is certainly better than being executed, but she did not name the bear herself. A seven year old boy named Muhammad gave the bear HIS OWN NAME.
Ali Mohammed Ajab, of Gibbons' defense team, said she was found guilty of "insulting the faith of Muslims in Sudan"
Muslims seem to be offended very easily. I wonder if that means they have doubts about their own faith.
under Article 125 of the Sudanese criminal code, a lighter conviction than the original charge of inciting religious hatred. A charge later confirmed by a judge leaving the closed court session. "I feel this is very serious and very unfair," he told The Associated Press outside the courtroom. Ajab, who also works for the Khartoum Center for Human Rights, said the issue was raised by "hard-liners who are always trying to make some noise," in an apparent reference to religious conservatives. Ajab said his center would appeal the verdict, an opinion not shared by Gibbons' employer.
That is probably not a smart move, since the rape VICTIM that appealed got her sentence more than doubled
