Teacher found Guilty ? 40 Lashes and Imprisonment


1:20 PM English Teacher found Guilty of "insulting Islam" under Sharia law during "trial" today, sentence was changed, from 6 monthes imprisonment to 15 days, but there has been no word on the 40 lashes. The Police have surrounded the Court Building, and if she is to be flogged, she will have the punishment today at the Courthouse, in another room. She is sentenced to 40 lashes and Imprisonment. President Bush has made no statement about this Concerning Human Rights, Woman's Rights Issue. MSNBC is following. Our State Department has Nothing to say. Media was banned from the Courtroom. I guess Condi would only intervene if she was wearing Stilletos.

Ms.Gibbons "Crime" ? She was teaching children about Compassion for Animals, the Stuffed Bear was named by the Children, they chose Mohammed, a name that they share with the bear. They are Seven year olds, they will now see a beloved teacher, a Woman beaten and punished for trying to teach them, and honoring their heritage.

MSNBC is covering, as is CNN (sporadically). UK Papers, and BBC covering better.

okay so suposedly she does not get flogged- just 15 days prison and Deportation....let's hope that is true...still so awful....just like the poor Saudi woman that was raped, and gets prison and flogging ordered- what is wrong with these people?

Extreme religions are so dangerous.

Today 11.30.07
Here it is day 2 of her prison sentence, and hordes amassed in the street, and are demanding her execution...what the hell is wrong with these people- it was a teddy bear- geez.....unreal...

they have now moved her to hiding...

Execution? I hate to say it but I'm thinking it has less to do with Shar'ia & more to do with her being British. note, no one is demanding lashes or worse for the students who actually named the bear, many of whom are also named Muhammad. See "This Old Brit" on your blogroll.

12.04.07 she was deported and pardoned, and returned home today- no flogging and no real prison...so she is home, end of the mess.
