Second, this is about a government manipulating a population of citizens into prostituting their religion to make a political statement.
How sad is that.
Teacher Hidden As Sudan Mob Urges Death
Chants of "Kill her!" and "No tolerance: Execution!" rang out as hundreds of police in riot gear stood by, keeping the crowd contained but not moving against the rally.
Protesters dismissed Gibbons' claims that she didn't mean to insult the prophet.
"It is a premeditated action, and this unbeliever thinks that she can fool us?" said Yassin
Mubarak, a young dreadlocked man swathed in green and carrying a sword. "What she did requires her life to be taken."
Several hundred protesters marched to Unity High School, where Gibbons worked, and
chanted outside briefly before heading toward the nearby British Embassy. They were stopped by security forces two blocks from the embassy. The protest dispersed after an hour.
"I would like to tell the whole world that what happened here from this English teacher is not acceptable to us," said a protester, Sheikh Nasser Abu Shamah.
There was no overt sign that the government organized the protest, but such a public rally could not have taken place without at least official assent.
Gibbons was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in jail and deportation for insulting Islam with the naming of the teddy bear, which was part of a class project for her 7-year-old students at the private school.
There are those that believe she should be murdered, those that chant murder just because and then there is a government that manipulates them all. Really, again, how sad is that?
