Mohammed the Bear Faces Life Sentence; However, Teacher Gillian Gibbons May be Freed Soon in the Sudan (UPDATE: Gillian Gibbons Pardoned)


Gillian Gibbons, the 54 year old teacher in the Sudan who waits anxiously for a decision, may be freed soon according to reports. Letting this hardened criminal out with the vicious crimes she has committed against the Muslim religion is unthinkable. (this would be sarcasm) One can only imagine the riots in the streets of Khartoum that will happen when that occurs. Unfortunately, that is not sarcasm.

However, when Gillian Gibbons is finally and rightfully released what will come of Mohammed the Bear? With the media attention off the story, what will happen to this innocent and cuddly bear? Where is PETA and the animal rights groups asking for Mohammed the bear’s release? Where is Amnesty International?

Mohammed the bear

Save Mohammed the bear

THE cuddly bear that sparked the storm in Sudan was locked away in a Khartoum vault last night — facing a much longer sentence than Gillian.

Authorities anxious to draw a line under the controversy admitted the 2ft brown teddy named Mohammed would never see daylight again.

He is being held at the CID department of the Ministry of Interior in Khartoum. Pleas by The Sun to free Mohammed were refused yesterday. A source said: “It’s a life sentence for the bear. He’s in a police store and will never be handed back.

“The government wants this case file to stay firmly closed.”

UPDATE I: Sudanese President Pardons British Teacher Jailed for ‘Muhammad’ Teddy Bear (was Mohammed the bear pardoned as well??)

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on Monday agreed to pardon a British teacher jailed here after she allowed her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad — putting an end to a case that has outraged Britons and Muslims around the world.

The teacher, Gillian Gibbons, said she did not intend to offend anyone and had great respect for Islam. Officials with al-Bashir’s office said she would be released later Monday.

      They wouldn’t stand a chance if PETA really wanted their heads on a platter. P&G, L’Oreal, and many fur designers already learned this. And PETA isn’t done with them. Will they call for my beheading if I say that this is so ridiculous it almost makes me hurl. Imprisoning Teddy Bears, calling for the murder of nuns and teachers, and we’re not supposed to “profile”. I’ve seen and heard too many people cross the line when it comes to my religion, but my God does not tell me to kill people over insults. He tells me to pray that they be forgiven.
