Iraq Still Murdering Gays
This is part of an article from The National:
"Abu Muslim likens his work to that of a surgeon, cutting out diseased parts of a body to save it from cancer. But unlike a doctor, he does not save lives, he takes them. Specifically, Abu Muslim and a small group of colleagues claim to have been killing homosexual men in Baghdad."
“We see this [homosexuality] as a serious illness in the community that has been spreading rapidly among the youth after it was brought in from the outside by American soldiers,” he said, in an interview in the Iraqi capital. Abu Muslim is not his real name. “These are not the habits of Iraq or our community and we must eliminate them.”
This article by Nizar Latif is a must read.
Do our troops try to stop this? Guess Iraq has its own form of DADT. Knock, knock State Department, Hillary are you home?
