Sudan....teddy bear issue ... Dec 03, 2007
`You know what...
Im really pissed off about this.
I have just watched the teacher from Liverpool get an early release and GROVEL and PUBLICLY APOLOGISE.
WHY THE HELL IS SHE DOING THIS!!!!?

REALLY?
WHAT HAS SHE DONE WRONG?

the uk gave thousands of pounds to this country in aid...now they are backing down from saving one of their own nationals from a prison sentence in a country we helped fund!!!

FFS we funded this bloody country!
I think that she shouldn't have been pardoned....they should be asking us
for a pardon for imprisoning one of our nationals.


OVER WHAT??

A FECKING TEDDY BEAR.

GET A GRIP.
SUDAN CAN GO AND PISS OFF AS FAR AS IM CONCERNED.

Muhammad is the name of Prophet and any insult toward prophet is considered "not forgiveable" in Muslim countries.

Its same if someone give the name of Queen to a dog. Would u be smiling ? :P

Yes I do.

They were over the top about the Teddy Bear, but religion is very dear to these people and in some cases, all they have.

Carrying on like a Brit Wanker aint gonna get anyone sympathetic to your cause.

I've got to agree with gezza about this situation - The whole situation is laughable. Fair enough about respecting people's beliefs, religions etc but surely people can see that there was no harmful intent behind calling the teddy bear mohammed. At worst it was pure ignorance on her behalf and she wasn't having a go at the prophet. Thats the point.
Its a shame that certain parts of the world particularly in muslim/islamic countries get very excitable about the smallest thing. People in sudan wielding machete's in protest about a bloody teddy bear should step back and take a look at themselves - If an immigrant in this country called a teddy bear jesus christ or the queen or whatvever it wouldn't raise an eyebrow.
I'm in no way particularly proud of being british or christian so i'm coming from a fairly neutral view point here - Just makes me laugh when i see the fuss caused by a throwaway comment. I think some people use their beliefs as an excuse to be extreme about them when something trivial comes along.

As I said, I agree with it being an over the top reaction to what was just a Teddy Bear.

What I don't think you get is I disagree with Gezza's response that for some reason being British makes them superior and above the reproach.

"They should ask for a pardon for imprisoning one of our nationals"

Such is the arrogance of Ukanistan.

Maybe I flew off the handle a little.
But the British government should be helping our nationals in areas such as this and not backing down to low life thuggery- which is what the courts in Sudan are.
We are the reason why the diplomats in Sudan have Big cars and personalized number plates.
so why are we bowing down to them and allowing them to imprison our people for' throw away comments'
The Uk government are a soft touch.
We should pull out of sudan or stand up for our own rights!
or get walked over by a faith that will imprisson us for a teddy bear!

or Am I being over the top myself?

To be fair we are a soft touch these days. We give aid to countries like Sudan and let everyone into our country to claim social benefit.

So religion is all these countries have? Is that an excuse for people to react the way they did and give them carte blanche to yield machete's in the street. If she was let out on the streets of sudan they would attack her like a pack of dogs over such a minor misdemeanour.
Maybe if islam countries took the lighter side of religion without detracting from their beliefs there wouldn't be as much trouble.
We have satire in uk, a form of comedy that takes the piss out of politics, religion and if everyone bought into this not as many people would be offended by imagined slights.

No but it's another place where religion is just the back drop.

Anyway, the teacher is free and Mohamed the bear has a new name now, so it's all good.

And here's me thinking I was going to buy a Hummer and call it Mo'Hummered.

You can shoot me now.
