Either way, she's been dubbed guilty before proven so. They're massing in the street wanting to cut her head off, and for what?
Would you consider assault the same as blasphemy? In Australia the kids get off with a slap on the wrist for throwing rocks at police cars, or even assaulting police officers. And their argument? They don't know how to function in our society, because school is too hard and no-one told them how they should behave. We cut them slack, so the Sudanese should cut her slack, even while our laws are documented and plainly enforced and their's is made-up and implicit.
I understand if you're Sudanese, but I'd consider it treason if you think she deserves to be punished for an obscene, undocumented rule. Even when they interviewed a Muslim boy in Sudan he said, "It's like a big red line, and she crossed it". And of-course he'd like her dead over some 'plainly evident, yet undocumented law'.
I can't even go to a Sudanese dominant suburb 7km from my house, because there are frequent stabbings, assault on police and car jacking (in broad day-light). Most of them are mad, which is being stereotypical of me yes... but when you're dealing with a country you have to do so. Sudan wants her dead, not just a few people. I bet if you were over there in her shoes, you'd want a fair trial -- and people of the western world to support you.

Do you mean, democracy? If so, I can see where your argument is coming from.
