The Sun Says

From Anila Baig, writing in the Sun:

But the truth is Muslims are not offended by a teddy being called Mohammed — they’re offended that this story has got so much publicity.

Most people are offended by the fact that the unfortunate Gillian Smith is facing an horrendous punishment for an entirely innocent and harmless act.

Anila Baig also wonders why Sharia law "gets a bad press".

In a related development, a spokesman for the Toys Defence Institute ("Teddy") has criticised the Liverpudlian teacher for her "insensitivity and implied insult to cuddly toys worldwide" for naming the bear after a "notorious medieval warlord".
