British teacher Pardoned

AP: Briton pardoned in Sudan Islam insult

Let me start by saying I am offended at the AP titling a story like this!! There was no intent to insult Islam. In their own story they state ‘Muhammad is one of the most common names for men in the Arab world. Muslim scholars generally agree that intent is a key factor in determining if someone has violated Islamic rules against insulting the prophet.’

I am glad to hear that the teacher has been pardoned but saddened that this whole event took place. For a peaceful people…they still have a lot to learn about tolerance.

I hope that Mrs. Gibbons finds a good job abroad and continue teaching.
