UK Teacher In Sudan Faces 40 Lashes For `Blasphemy'
Yet another example of sharia's tender concern for women, this time in the Sudan.
A British Teacher faces 40 lashes after being arrested in the Sudan for `blasphemy'.
Her crime? Allowing her class of seven-year-olds at Unity School in Khartoum to name a teddy bear Mohammed as part of a lesson about animals' habitats.
Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, was arrested on Sunday, November 25th.The British Embassy in Khartoum confirmed the arrest.
The Sudan has an Islamist regime governed by sharia law.
We'll have to see how this pans out..her MP and the British Foreign Office are apparently working on it.
Likely, since she's a foreigner, she'll be released and kicked out of the country following the receipt of a suitable amount of baksheesh in the right pockets - oh, pardon me, a `fine' in lieu of a whipping.
While I certainly hope Ms. Gibbons gets home safely, she should have thought twice about accepting a position where she would be under the thumb of these savages. They have a perfect right to practice this kind of barbarism on their home turf,and she should have been aware of it.
But hopefully, little incidents like this will awaken the British and others on what's being imported to their countries under the guise of `multiculturism'.
