HANGING JUDGE

Three “Not” Homosexuals “Not” Publicly Executed In Iran

In 2007 Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad infamously declared that there are no homosexuals in Iran. The following year he admitted that there are homosexuals, but that there’s no law calling for their execution, contrary to factual belief. So how would he explain yesterday morning’s hanging of three men convicted of “sexual intercourse between men”?

Iran Human Rights has more:

Condemning the executions, the spokesperson of Iran Human Rights (IHR), Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, said:”Yesterday’s executions for sodomy might be among the rare cases were the Iranian authorities admit to having executed men convicted of homosexual acts”. He added: “Iranian authorities normally present such cases as rape, but rape as not been mentioned in this case”.

We have no idea yet how old these men were. But seeing as Ahmadinejad considers homosexuality on par with gunning down a bunch of people, we’re sure that (in his eyes) justice has been served.

      Ahmadinejad is in my view, quite literally insane. If ever there was a justification for the CIA to “off” a foreign leader, it is him. Ahmadinejad is a threat to his own people and a menace to Israel.

      Ahmadinejad is a piece of shit who should be tried in the International Court. He and his fellow fundamentalists are a a blight on humanity. Bush should have added Iran to the list of countries to invade. It’s a putrid place run by animals at the lower end of the evolutionary scale.

      Whatever happened to all of the pro-Muslim talk on this site? It seems Queerty never met a Muslim it didn’t love, so it’s interesting that suddenly it acknowledges the extreme homophobia of . . . well, at least it acknowledged that ONE of them is homophobic. Baby steps, right? At this rate, you guys will have figured it out in a few million years.

      @Politically Incorrect Thug: Yes, because the world is so much better off when all of us adopt extreme knee-jerk positions divorced from reality. e.g., all Muslims are evil. I’ll wait the million years, thank you.

      And if there is any real menace in the Middle East, it is zionist Israel.

      In 2007 Ahmadinejad said:”we don’t have such a phenomenon in our country like yours” & he is right since this is against Iranians’ religion and has been banned in Islam so it’s rare among people and it’s not public like US. executions are according to the law and is being implemented by judiciary system which is an independent branch in Iran and nothing to do with president. I think you always want to find sth to condemn Ahmadinejad just because he is against zionist regime but being fair is always a better way.

      @Mav: Oh. My. Fucking. God. You’ve been so brainwashed by the Left that you think ISRAEL is the biggest threat in the Middle East? Really? With Iran developing nuclear weapons that they want to use on their neighbors (not to mention us), you think ISRAEL is the bigger threat? Libya, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan . . . and yet you say ISRAEL is the bigger threat? Wow. Too bad you can’t put your money where your mouth is and go visit the Iraqis whom you believe would so lovingly embrace you just because you’re an anti-American American. FYI, they would not; they would kill you the first time they caught you checking out Ahmed’s crotch. You are an unbelievably idiotic tool if you believe otherwise.

      @ewe: Somehow, ewe, I suspect you’re baiting me with that question, but any simpleton can turn on the news and see the leftists in Europe burning their cities to the ground because the public handouts aren’t as abundant as they once were. Same with Wisconsin: Lefty unions are asked to contribute a minor percentage to their own benefits, and they stage ridiculous sit-ins for months. And on the right? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the radical Tea Party. Oooo, scary. Middle-aged white people with signs who want to stop the government from spending their tax money on bullshit: Is THIS what you’re claiming to be the more radical? Riiiiight.

      Politically Incorrect Thug – I was more or less with you until post #24. You really need to read much much more on the Wisconsin story. For only one tiny example and it is not even the worst, but it is late, I’m tired – one of the conservative governors said state employees are well paid at $50,000 annually. I’m not ungrateful to make that much, but I’m WELL paid? I can’t imagine having a family and trying to send kids to college etc. on that salary. And of course, you don’t qualify for any grants or such because “you make so much money.”

      As to the Muslim/Israel issues – everyone forgot that Iran and Iraq used to put anti-Israel terrorist funding on their budget printouts not so long ago. Many Muslims actually believe that Israeli chewing gum has a chemical in it to make Muslim girls and boys unchaste. (can’t imagine teens being interested in sex on their own I suppose, with hormones ragine, huh?) Muslims are the only group I know of going ballistic over newspaper cartoons, such as Denmark and publicly issuing worldwide Fatwah’s for death of anyone who says a bad word against Islam. Which is not to say Israel hasn’t done some wrong things too, but it is kinda understandable, considering how small they are. The Palestinian problem could be easily resolved if each Arab country (any ONE is far richer and larger than Israel) take a certain number and give them some farmland.

      VERY IMPORTANT – Let’s not forget the guy who died a few years ago, I forget his name, in charge of the Palestinian Authority REFUSED to accept any deals brokered any source to resolve the Palestinian situation. Why? Because peace and resolution would stop the funding coming to him which he had almost complete control over. Unrest kept him important.

      One more thing about salary – if $50,000 is SOOOOO much money, what in the hell do other people need hundreds of millions and billions for? I’m not suggesting that intitiative not be rewarded or the government control income potential, but just about every source I trust says taxes on the rich are lower then they have been in 60 or 80 years. People forgot that income taxes when instituted were never for the poor and middle class. The government just kept the levels the same and inflation pushed everyone into the income tax paying class. Other forms of income can now be considered capital gains and the tax rate is only 15% whereas prior it was taxed at 35%.

      Of course, people don’t like taxes rich or poor, but AFTER the rich can take every deduction, buy every yacht and building for “business purposes”, deduct every lunch and dinner and expensive gifts to entice clients to buy their services, why NOT pay some taxes on what is leftover?

      I guess if not, then we just eventually become like Haiti or someplace, very rich and very poor. The rich of course, will have to ride around in bulletproof limousines and live behind gated communities with guards. Is that really what we want? Not me.
