Miliband bids for jailed teacher's release
David Miliband has personally reassured the family of jailed British teacher Gillian Gibbons that he is doing "everything he can" to secure her release, it emerged today.

The foreign secretary called Mrs Gibbons' family last night to offer his support for the 54-year-old teacher from Liverpool.

And two British Muslim peers have travelled to Sudan in an effort to secure the teacher's release, a move which the Foreign Office said was separate to their efforts to secure her freedom, but which they described as "very welcome".

The peers, Labour's Lord Ahmed and Conservative Baroness Warsi, made the journey on their own initiative after negotiating with Sudanese officials.

"Analysts believe it would suit the Sudanese government to be seen to be showing mercy in handing her over to a Muslim delegation, instead of appearing to 'give in' to their former colonial masters, the British government," said the BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner.
My theory - this is classic dictatorial behaviour, the Sudanese government has engineered this for their own ends, they want to create a west vs islam confrontation.

These type of tactics were used by Stalin e.g. show trials.

The religion is just a veneer.
