I really can’t even comment on most of this, except to say that some of these quotes are comedy gold.
Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear “Muhammad.”
Get this: They were marching in a place called – I am not making this up – Martyrs Square.
“Imprisoning this lady does not satisfy the thirst of Muslims in Sudan. But we welcome imprisonment and expulsion,” the cleric, Abdul-Jalil Nazeer al-Karouri, a well-known hard-liner, told worshippers.
“This an arrogant woman who came to our country, cashing her salary in dollars, teaching our children hatred of our Prophet Muhammad,” he said.
The good news is that prominent Western Muslims are denouncing their Sudanese brethren. Let’s hope this trend of intolerance toward stupidity can continue.
Sometimes I have to wonder if The Onion runs the Muslim world, I really do.
