The latest from the Religion of Peace

That British schoolteacher whose class named their teddy bear "Mohammed", causing her to be arrested, has been convicted of "Insulting Islam", resulting in a sentence of 15 days in prison and deportation: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071129/ap_on_re_af/sudan_british_teacher. Personally, I think that the deportation might be a reward, not a punishment, but leaving that aside for the moment, what kind of primitive society punishes "crimes" like this? Why is there no international outcry over this idiocy?

UPDATE (3:50 p.m.): A U.S. Islamic group, to its credit, has slammed the Sudanese court's decision, noting in not so many words how stupid and hypersensitive it makes Muslims look: http://www.aicongress.org/bear2.html.
