Overreaction is one way to put it, I guess

US complains of Sudan’s ‘overreaction’ in teddy bear case

I’d go more along the lines of old-fashioned ‘insanity’, myself:

Teacher hidden as Sudan mob urges death

It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so terrifying:

KHARTOUM, Sudan – Thousands of Sudanese, many armed with clubs and swords and beating drums, burned pictures of a British teacher Friday and demanded her execution for insulting Islam by letting her students name a teddy bear Muhammad.

How many billions of dollars do we give these nuts annually? Cutting them off and let them starve to death would serve the world better than feeding them.

Badboy, even the Iraqis said this was foolishness, and muslims in the UK have been queuing up to denounce these idiots. I do wonder why the schools induction pack didn’t include the fact that she was teaching the children of bigots.
The main problem with Sudan IMO is it’s inherently shite government, and the way they use religion as a smokescreen to hide it.

UPDATE: following a visit to the Sudanese president by two senior British Muslims, a presidential pardon has been decreed.
