The Iranian Midget Dictator told a very receptive audience that Iran is “Gay Free”. Iran is famous for its Nazi Like treatment of gay people.
When pressed about the treatment of homosexuals in his country, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was translated as saying his country did not have homosexuals and questioned where anyone had heard there were gays in Iran.
This drew laughs and some boos from the audience at Columbia University, where he was speaking Monday afternoon in a controversial question and answer session.
Iran is famous for torturing and killing anyone found to be gay. Here is some factual information of how homosexuals/Gay People are treated in the Islamic Republic of Iran:
In the city of Mashhad in north-eastern Iran, two gay teens have been executed. One was 18 and the other is thought to have been 16 or 17. First they were lashed 228 times, though. Not long after the execution there were howls of outrage from the Iranian parliament – not at the execution itself, but at the temerity of journalists to report it.
Consensual gay sex in any form is punishable by death in the Islamic Republic of Iran. According to the website Age of Consent, which monitors such laws around the world, in Iran “Homosexuality is illegal, those charged with love-making Irangay_teens_2 are given a choice of four deathstyles: being hanged, stoned, halved by a sword, or dropped from the highest perch.According to Article 152, if two men not related by blood are discovered naked under one cover without good reason, both will be punished at a judge’s discretion. Gay teens (Article 144) are also punished at a judge’s discretion. Rubbing one’s penis between the thighs without penetration (tafheed) shall be punished by 100 lashes for each offender. This act, known to the English-speaking world as frottage,’ is punishable by death if the ‘offender’ is a non-Muslim. If frottage is thrice repeated and penalty-lashes have failed to stop such repetitions, upon the fourth ‘offense’ both men will be put to death.According to Article 156, a person who repents and confesses his gay behavior prior to his identification by four witnesses, may be pardoned. Even kissing ‘with lust’ (Article 155) is forbidden. This bizarre law works to eliminate old Persian male-bonding customs, including common kissing and holding hands in public.” And Outrage, in its release about the gay teens’ execution, noted that, “according to Iranian human rights campaigners, over 4000 lesbians and gay men have been executed since the Ayatollahs seized power in 1979. Last August, a 16-year-old girl was hanged for ‘acts incompatible with chastity.’”
One does not need to wonder anymore whether or not Mahmoud Ahamdinejad is lying about his intentions of destroying Israel and the United States of America. Anyone believing that Iran is welcoming to the gay community and believe that Iran is a Gay Free country is lacking common sense and a brain.
