Mohamedans, Teddy Bears, and Dogs

Well, I under-
stand from the blogo-
sphere some Muslims are upset because somewhere someone has named a Teddy Bear after Mohamed.

These people don't know when they're well off. In some quarters this calls for taking up jihad. These are the same people who often name their sons after Mohamed. This same kid might grow up to be a nice person, or he might grow up to have the distinction of putting a bomb vest on himself and detonating it to allegedly honor the same.

[Update: Click here to check out this hysterical ebay listing someone just sent me.]

I would think if a person REALLY set out to tick off the Muslims, he'd be much more creative - this might run to naming a dog after Mohamed. Think of the apoplexy your Muslim neighbor might have with the following:

Mohamed, get DOWN off the couch, DOWN I say.

Mohamed, roll over.

Mohamed, fetch my slippers, the paper, and a beer from the fridge for me.

Mohamed, stay.

Mohamed, stop slobbering.

Mohamed, lie down.

Mohamed, don't whiz on the carpet.

Mohamed, beg.

Mohamed, let's go walkies.

Mohamed, stop trying to procreate with the furniture.

Mohamed, stop licking your b---s.

Karen: HA! Go look at my blog - but no, the dog will NOT be named Mohammed!!!

gemoftheocean said...

Psychic! I was literally just over at your blog when you were on mine I left you a comment!

That ebay auction is just too funny.
What's not funny is the woman in question was sentenced to 15 days in jail and deportation. The deporting is a good thing, IMHO.

gemoftheocean said...

Absolutely. Deportation was a gift in the mouth.

Adrienne said...

Just checked out the ebay auction. I need to print that before it's pulled. ROFLMAO

Exactly Karen..but to think you might get 40 lashes...yikes!

I love the ebay bear and it's good to know there might be a pretty big donation to a hospice.

Praying the poor woman gets out of jail and the country safely. The muslims of Sudan have a LOT of blood on their hands.

Well, hopefully nobody has any of Ms. Gibbons' blood on their hands.

The prison sentence is appalling and outrageous, of course - but at the same time, you have to wonder at the naivety of a woman who went to teach in a hard-line Muslim country and wasn't aware that making any kind of image of Mohammed is a no-no. As I said, the prison sentence is a hideous overreaction and completely unjustified (and it looks as if diplomatic relations between the UK and the Sudan may well be badly damaged by this incident), but surely, if you set off to take a job like that in a place like that, you do your homework about the culture you're going to before you leave home.

Hey, I personally think the kids set her up. Jihadist training and all that so they can practice persecuting the she devil western woman. I wouldn't want to go to any Muslim country - unless it's OVER it, and I'm in an aircraft with a lot of bombs and we're on a mission. I have really "had it" with those people.

Stephen said...

The kids didn't turn her in, and neither did the parents (indeed, one parent of a child in that class has appeared on British TV saying, essentially, that she's appalled that the woman was arrested over something so trivial). According to the (many) reports in the British media, it was a member of the school's administrative staff that turned her in.

There are now all kinds of diplomatic machinations going on to ensure that she's released asap - hopefully within the next 48 hours - and Sudanese officials in Britain, from what we saw on yesterday's BBC news, are (justifiably) *extremely* embarrassed, as are Muslim community leaders in the UK. And of course she should never have been arrested in the first place, much less tried and jailed (she was, fortunately, found not guilty of inciting hatred against Islam, which is why she was jailed rather than publicly flogged). But even having said all that, it has to be said that she was spectacularly naive.

I think she was naive for wanting to live there in the first place. And if the Muzzies want ANY respect, they need to leash in the fanatics.
