I wonder how many lashes you get for being caught with a cartoon of Muhammad... I think they put out a contract to kill that guy..

Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and knives, rallied Friday in a central square and demanded the execution of a British teacher convicted of insulting Islam for allowing her students to name a teddy bear "Muhammad."

Saudi King Pardons Teen Female Rape Victim Sentenced to 200 Lashes

The case had sparked international outcry. In a rare criticism of its Mideast ally, the White House had expressed its "astonishment" over the woman's sentence. Canada called it barbaric.

So the Saudi's caved under international pressure. This shows their weakness to defend their law, religion, or both... IMHO. I hope she is able to escape the country before they get back to normal business when this blows over.
