The Religion of Peace: "KILL Her! KILL Her!"

Spitting hatred, thousands of hardline Islamists called for British teacher Gillian Gibbons to be shot yesterday.

They streamed out of mosques in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, shouting: "Kill her, kill her, kill her by firing squad."

One man brandished a giant sword, others carried axes, clubs, ceremonial swords and knives.

Pictures of the 54-year-old, who was sentenced to 15 days in jail for insulting Islam by letting her class call a teddy bear Mohammed, were set alight or trampled into the dirt.

The barbarity and savagery of Islam once again rears its ugly face. Look at the pictures closely. That isn't a small handful of radical protesters. There are thousands, perhaps tens of thousands. And virtually all are Muslim men. Muhammad is their example.

"Moderate" Muslims continue to claim theirs is the "religion of peace." Rational people everywhere desperately cling to the hope that extremists within the religion are, in fact, a minority. But almost as though they want to prove "moderates" wrong, violent Muslim men throughout the world boldly proclaim their religious duty to spread Islam, by violence if necessary.

In the end, it will ultimately come to this: will it be a battle between the civilized West, allied with a majority of 'peaceful' Muslims, against the extremists, or will it be a war against Islam? That is left up to the "moderate" Muslims.

UPDATE: Gillian Gibbons has been pardoned.
