Persecution of Gays in Iraq. ***Warning-Disturbing Footage***
http://www.channel4.com/player/v2/asx/showvideofeature....


Hardline Islamic insurgent groups in Iraq are targeting a new type of victim with the full protection of Iraqi law. The country is seeing a sudden escalation of brutal attacks on what are being called the 'immorals' - homosexual men and children as young as 11 who have been forced into same-sex prostitution.

This video is from Channel 4 in London.

3. Any Muslim country ...
... whether "for us" or "against us" will be anti-gay.

I don't think Bush really cares one way or the other. He'll just pander to anyone who plays his game, foreign or domestic.

5. isn't that ultimately the challenge of human rights?
We want to respect religious and cultural tradition and LASTLY the rights of individuals? Our priorities are seriously fucked up.

I can honestly say that if such a thing were to start happening here, I would not wait for anyone to knock on my door. And I have a feeling I would not be hunting alone. What a horrific world those people live in, and sadder to think there are some "americans" (little "a") who think it should be that way here to, except subsitute a white "holy" fat guy for the Mullah and the Bible for Islam.

I am still seething . . . we expect this from lawlessness, and we expect it in a nearly anarchic society, but it didn't happen under Saddam, nor the random executions of people with one last name or another.

But America, this administration, sits quietly by - giving tacit approval to this policy.

Our beloved America.
