Thousands in Sudan Call for British Teddy Bear Teacher's Execution

Quote:
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."
This woman better get the heck out of there.

The case had sparked international outcry. In a rare criticism of its Mideast ally, the White House had expressed its "astonishment" over the woman's sentence. Canada called it barbaric.

So the Saudi's caved under international pressure. This shows their weakness to defend their law, religion, or both... IMHO. I hope she is able to escape the country before they get back to normal business when this blows over.
