Briton Convicted in Sudan Blasphemy Case

November 29th, 2007 . by TexasFred

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) – 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.

Ali Mohammed Ajab, of Gibbons’ defense team, said she was found guilty of “insulting the faith of Muslims in Sudan” 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.

Briton Convicted in Sudan Blasphemy Case

I keep hearing all of the human rights groups and women’s groups and religious groups crying out, ‘Where is the outrage?? This isn’t right!’ and I have to agree, it isn’t right, but it IS Islam, and not being right and being Islam go hand in hand as far as we that live in a Christian or Jewish world are concerned…

But Gibbons is not in a Christian or Jewish nation, she is in an Islamic nation and their law is the law of their land, there’s not too much we can say or do, she knew, or, maybe I need say it this way, she should have known what she was getting into when she went to Sudan, she’s white, she’s female, I am guessing she’s probably a Christian, having seen her pictures I know she’s not a Muslim at least, that was obvious from the way she was dressed, all things considered it would appear that the cards were stacked against her from the start…

Outrage?? Where is the OUTRAGE?? That’s the question that everyone is screaming, outrage at a moonbat Islamic court that gave her a sentence of 15 days in jail and deportation for letting her pupils name a teddy bear Muhammad?? That outrage?? Even that sentence is way overboard as far as our legal system is concerned, but the Sudan does NOT operate under our legal system…

She could have received a much more severe sentence, she could have received six months in prison and something like 40 lashes, as well a monetary fine, and the lashes alone would have likely been more than enough to kill her…

Outrage?? Malkin was on FOX News earlier, HERE, she was so angry she was cross-eyed, her neck veins were throbbing and her eyes were close to popping out of her head a time or 2…

Outrage, oh yeah, Malkin has outrage, and a cause, and she had it going on, but here’s the real deal, when in Rome, do as the Romans do, if you don’t like Rome, stay OUT of Italy, so to speak…

    I think the thing is stupid too but it’s their country and their laws. For some reason we have this mentality that every country in the world either wants to be like us or needs to be like us.

    Back in the early 80′s when I was deployed for Operation Elf One in Saudi Arabia, the AWACS guys adopted a goat for a mascot and made a Saudi line badge for him. Apparently this line badge had the symbol of the King or Royal Family, or something and when one of the Saudi guards happened to see it, the shit hit the fan. Nobody got arrested but we did hear the goat was taken away and killed. When in a Muslim country, you follow its laws. That’s when I realized I would rather be a poor American than a rich Arab.

    You know, it’s too bad our government would stand up for the symbols of our nation when foreigners come here and desecrate our flag and refuse to follow our laws.

    As much as it pains me to agree with this, you’re right.
    A nation makes laws for the people to follow, if they don’t there is consequences.
    No matter how ridiculous we think their laws are, they are THEIRS.

    Maybe if America actually enforced the laws the ILLEGAL Immigration issue would be non existent.

    Gillian should be glad she didn’t have a white-hot piece of rebar inserted up her ass, or any other fabulous alterative the Saudis could think of at the time. “When in Rome. . .”

    My little sister once had a pet gecko named Lazarus. I had a hamster named Mary. Damn, we’re going to hell.
