Being Gay In Iraq’s Bad News

British activist Peter Tatchell informs us that an Iraqi gay activist was gunned down at a barber shop this morning. This is only one of many, many murders carried out since the American invasion, most of which are carried out by organized death squads.

Tatchell wrote a good summation of the violence in today’s edition of the Guardian, which went to press before the most recent assassination.

After the jump, a video on the “sexual cleansing.” It’s very depressing and called Gay Life, Gay Death in Iraq.

      I won’t make any comments about murdering muslims, honest I won’t.

      I really won’t, cos islam is a religion of peace and love and mohammed was a prophet of peace who didn’t launch raiding parties against all the surrounding tribes who refused to bow to him, and he didn’t marry a nine year old girl. And muslims have never, in their long history, never, ever been aggressive to anyone.

      Peace and love, maaaaaaaan.

      In Arabic, Islam comes from the verb “to surrender.” It is, therefore, usually translated into English as a religion based upon “submission” to God. The whole “religion of peace” mantra was actually developed by that great Muslim scholar, Ayatollah George W. Bush, in a speech given at the Islamic Center of Washington DC on September 17, 2001.

      @tallskin: Let’s see, now we are talking aggression against gays and other nations? Never happens in our christian world, of course not! We never attacked a soverign country like India or massacared the Aztecs forced opium to the Chinese-nope! We never killed and attacked gays like Matthew Sheperd or any others coming out of a gay bar–hell no! If we were any more just, we would sprout wings and become angels!
