How to deal with Islamists (Sudanese or otherwise)

It's the 'clash of civilisations', innit? Well, no, it's civilisation clashing with barbarity when a mob of Sudanese Muslims, egged on by imams demands the death of an English teacher, doing her best to educate her charges, when she allows them to name their teddy bear Mohammed. She should have known better than to name a cuddly creature after such a deeply unpleasant man.

There is some previous between us and the Sudan, of course. Little things like the death of General Gordon and the Battle of Omdurman. The Fuzzy-Wuzzies may still be a bit peeved about that - it's the cold steel, they don't like it up 'em.

The Sudanese Ambassador got a ticking off from the Home Secretary, the Rt Hon David Miliband, MP. I bet that scared him (see picture). Poor Gillian Gibbons needs all our prayers.

So I would suggest the following as a training film for British forces in the Gulf (or indeed the security services at home) as a means of dealing, robustly, with the threat from militant Islam.

UPDATE: Good news, she's home. Deo gratias.

That Indy clip is one of my favourites. It was completely improvised as well, since the original script had Indy doing all sorts of elaborate tricks with his whip to disarm the Saracen. Apparently Harrison Ford was feeling unwell that day, and decided to go with something a little less exerting!
