  • “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them
“Iraqi Gay men’s rectums are glued shut and they are force-fed laxatives and water until their insides explode”
 


The Hunted  by Matt McAllester

NEW YORK MAGAZINE


“Killing gays is halal,” permissible under Islamic law. “We’ll get points in heaven for it.”

From Baghdad—frightening reports of gay pogroms, where homosexual men are targeted, tortured, slayed. From New York—a scurry to find those same men before they are killed, and shepherd them to safety. On a bright afternoon in late March, an 18-year-old named Fadi stood in a friend’s clothing store in Baghdad checking out the new merchandise. A worker in a neighboring store walked into the boutique with a newspaper in his hand and shared a story he had just read. It was about “sexual deviants,” he said. Gay men’s rectums had been glued shut, and they had been force-fed laxatives and water until their insides exploded. They had been found dead on the street.

That evening Fadi met up with his three closest friends—Ahmed, Mazen, and Namir—in a coffee shop.“They’re doing this to frighten us,” he said. In recent weeks, with rumors of gay death squads and torture on the rise, the four friends had lowered their profile. They no longer went to the Shisha every night. “We’ll see what tomorrow brings,” Fadi said, on the last night they met there.

On April 4, at about 8 p.m., Fadi’s cell phone rang. It was Mazen’s brother. “Mazen and Namir have been killed,” he said. The maimed bodies of the two friends had been discovered together in the vast Shia district of Baghdad named Sadr City, which is a stronghold of the Mahdi Army, a powerful Shia militia. Mazen had had his pectoral muscles cut off. There were two drill holes in Namir’s left leg, below the knee. Both had been shot in the head, apparently from close range.

“Two young men were killed on Thursday,” an unnamed Sadr City official told the Reuters news agency in a story published that same day. “They were sexual deviants. Their tribes killed them to restore their family honor.” In the same story, Reuters cited a police source as saying that the bodies of four other gay men had been found in Sadr City on March 25 with signs on their chests reading PERVERT.

Fadi called Ahmed. They spoke for an hour. They were devastated by their friends’ deaths, of course. They were also terrified. Under torture, Mazen and Namir may have given up their names.

There was no announcement, no fatwa, no openly declared policy by a cleric or militia leader or politician, but a wave of anti-gay hysteria hit the country. An Iraqi TV station, with disapproving commentary, showed a video of a group of perhaps two dozen young men at a private dance party, wiggling their hips like female belly dancers. Terms like the third sex and puppies, a newly coined slur, began to appear in hostile news reports. Shia and Sunni clerics started to preach in their Friday sermons about the evils of homosexuality and “the people of Lot.” Police officers stepped up their harassment of openly gay men. Families and tribes cast out their gay relatives. The bodies of gay men like Mazen and Namir, often mutilated, began turning up on the street. There is no way to verify the number of tortured or harassed, but the best available estimates place that figure in the thousands. Hundreds of men are believed to have been killed.


Public Hanging of gay men in Iran

The eruption of violence in February appears to have been an unintended consequence of the country’s broader peace. In the wake of the surge in American troops and the increase in strength of the Iraqi military and police forces, Iraq’s once-powerful Sunni and Shia militias have wound down their attacks against American forces and one another. Now they appear to be repositioning themselves as agents of moral enforcement, exploiting anti-gay prejudice as a means of engendering public support.

Funny how they protest the only Middle East country that accepts gays
Gays protest the only Mid East country that accepts them

It doesn’t help that gay people have virtually no allies in Iraqi society. Women, ethnic minorities, detainees, people who work for the Americans—just about everyone else in the country has some sort of representation. But there are no votes to be gained or power to be accrued in any Iraqi community—Shia, Sunni, Kurds, Christians, Turkmen—by supporting gay people. Gays in Iraq today are essentially a defenseless target.



United States officials have been aware of the gay killings in Iraq for several months and have raised questions about the Iraqi government’s role in the rise in violence and its response to the purges. But the Iraqis sometimes express repulsion at gay people, sources familiar with American diplomatic efforts say. And there is only so far Americans can push the Iraqi government without inadvertently causing a backlash on gay Iraqis. The U.S. State Department says it is working to accept as many Iraqi refugees as it can into the country, but Scott Long insists not enough is being done. “Only in the past year has the U.S. really started meeting its obligations to endangered Iraqis by ramping up the numbers it’s willing to accept. But it’s critical for authorities to commit to recognizing LGBT Iraqis as among those endangered, and as fitting into the U.S. numbers. We’re waiting for a public commitment.” READ THE REST: The Hunted

Gee, does BHO ever feel like he's between a rock and a hard place (so to speak) when it comes to negotiating with the same Iran that would glue his butt?

Edit to add: Oops, how did I read Iran for Iraq?  :whistle:

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

The same people who are coming up with a physical test in ME countries that, apparently can be done in airports, and can determine whether or not a person is homosexual.

Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, etc.......

Should be interesting to see how the American left deal with the reality of the homophobia (the real kind) of the lovely Islamic world.

Of course the American solution is to bring them all here. While others are rejecting homosexual acts in the most extreme and inhumane ways possible, the United States considers sodomy a constitutional, and increasingly unquestionable, right.

Welcome to New Sodom! Enjoy your stay, and pay no attention to the deadly diseases you might get.

Isn't there some sort of middle ground to be had here???

Yeah, there is.

It's hate the sin and love the sinner..................but no one seems to be interested in that solution.

The left will look the other way, no matter how barbaric islam gets.

The left will keep looking the other way until islam beheads them.

The left doesn't support Islam or what it does. In fact, a lot of the left are atheists, and have great disdain for these people.

Wrong.

The left in this country, led by Muslim sympathizer Obama, is in love with Islam.

That's why pseudo-educators in our schools all over the country are forcing Islam on our school children, while banning any form of Christianity.  That's why we have leftists in Congress advocating Sharia Law.  That's why we have PC protection of Islam, and targeting of Christian conservatives.

Yeah, many are atheists.  They also claim to care about the rights of women.  (Don't get me started on the leftist lies about and their hatred of women).  Which is why their wholesale support of Islam is downright bizarre.

Get up to speed.

Could you please provide documentation of your claims? I understand that many places are trying to remove Christianity from schools as part of the separation of church and state, but I've heard nothing of Islam being forced on school children. I've heard of a couple of private schools with an Islamic agenda, but nothing else.

There are lots of threads with documentation here on TBR, and on other Conservative forums.

Do some research.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

So out of curiosity, do you guys have a problem with the books that have a Christian bias, and try to teach kids about the Christian perspective? Texas has been trying to add elements of Christianity into science classes for years. Is this okay, or is it also wrong?

Here is what I am against - the unfathomable barbarism, death and cruelty that is foisted upon others by practitioners of radical Islam in the name of their god.  It is insideous and it is growing.  It is uncompromising and it scoffs at, while gaining strength from the proclamations of the COEXIST crowd.  A very real day of reckoning will occur in our lifetime - bank on it.  And, there will be no refuge or respite for the latte drinking pseudo-intellectual who believes that, with just a little more understanding, all will be well.
