Anyone else following this story? There is a teach from England, teaching in a private Sudanese school. For a class project she had a student bring a stuffed animal in and the class voted one names. She ask the class to come up with 4 names, then they voted. The name Muhammad won. Now the Sudanese are all in an up roar saying that naming a bear was an insult and the teacher should be killed. Talk about extreme, uncalled for measures. I don't even see how using that name for a stuffed animal would be an insult.

I think its just an excuse fr them to expel a westerner from their country. If I remember riht she coul have been punished much more severely (like 40 lashes and prison or something). It is unbelievable though, I think if that happened here and the class named it Jesus people would think its fine, although that mightbe aother lawsuit because of seperation of church and state. You just can't win.
