It’s a well documented fact that the Iranian government executes suspected homosexuals, yet president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continues to deny such atrocities.
Just days after he dismissed Larry King’s queer questions, Ahmadinejad – one of the looniest people in the world – rebuffed Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman’s assertions that his regime has overseen unknown numbers of gays.
Specifically citing the July 19, 2005, hangings of two teens, Goodman asks, “Do you think gay men and lesbians should die in Iran?” And, of course, Ahmadinejad claims the executed men and women are guilty of other offenses, although does admit there are gays in his nation, something he once denied:
No, there is no law for their execution in Iran. Either they were drug traffickers or they had killed someone else. Those who kill someone else or engage in acts of rape could be punished by execution. Otherwise, homosexuals are not even known who they are to be hung, in the second place. So, we don’t have executions of homosexuals. Of course, we consider it an abhorrent act, but it is not punished through capital punishment. It’s basically an immoral act. There are a lot of acts that can be immoral, but there’s no capital punishment for them.
What would you do in the United States if someone picked up a gun and killed a bunch of people?
First of all, mass murder and buggery are hardly comparable. And, Mr. Ahmadinejad, to answer your question, we would have a trial, rather than a lynching.
He’s speaking through the warped logic of sharia law.
Technically, queer folk cannot be persecuted for simply being queer or saying they’re queer, but many are persecuted for (alleged) crossdressing, “rape”, adultery, and prostitution, amongst things.
Actually, it is NOT a “well-documented” fact that Iran executed gays at all.
I’m sure that president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will ‘come round’ regarding the gay question, given some time.
I saw Larry King interviewing him last night (re-run) and thought that president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is one of the most dangerous people on earth for he is an HONEST and SINCERE man who speaks the truth regardless! This came through very strongly during the interview.
Bush in comparison is a low IQ GANGSTER who has to please his Zionist masters because they know of all the crimes he has committed. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad though, is his own man.
I had to laugh when president Mahmoud Ahmadineja answered critical regarding the $ 700 Billion bailout and Larry couldn’t switch to a ‘commercial break’ fast enough to cut him off! It was so obvious. CNN is sooo manipulative, it’s funny.
Just watched the news right now on CNN re the $ 700 Billion plan did not pass and I see every reporter on CNN makes a face as if all the Rothschilds and Rockefellers just died. What a charade. CNN = CIA operation.
“My View” from Europe…where to start. Honest and sincere? First he says there are no gays, then there are gays but they are not getting killed. Maybe Amnesty International is lying:
Second, zionist masters…there are less than 20 million Jews in the world, well over a billion Muslims and two billion plus Christians. I dont think we can spraed the Jews thin enough to have them be guilty for all the crap in this world people like you would want everybody to think.
Third, CNN = CIA, has to be the biggest nonsense I’ve heard in a while. It’s really hard to counter an argument that has absolutely nothing but your hallucinations as a basis for it. Where are the facts? You don’t like CNN, don’t watch it and stop hitting that pipe.
Ok, “Hass”, you can check out the link on the response to “My View” as well.
Ahmadinejad didn’t say there aren’t any gay people — he said there aren’t any gays people “like in the US” meaning an openly gay culture.
Like it or not, lots of people in the world find homosexuality to be repulsive. You’re being ethnocentric in demanding that they adopt the same social values as you.
Deal with it.
I am not sure how accurate his claim is. Because of possible weaknesses in Iran’s judicial system, it is a possibility that some overzealous mullah, from time to time, has taken it upon himself to enforce “morality,” possibly on the premise of some trumped-up charges. Also, I do not think that the president of Iran was comparing gay sex to a murderous rampage. He was comparing a murderous rampage to a murderous rampage. I would like to have a long talk with the fellow about showing tolerance toward the gay community, being a gay man myself, but this is a side-issue. The distortions about this man have gotten out of control. He’s not a great guy, people, but he’s not a loony either. It’s not that I trust or like him. I just think it’s ridiculous to charge him with things that there is no basis for.
@ No. 4 Â· diago who said ‘Second, zionist mastersâ€¦there are less than 20 million Jews in the world well over a billion Muslims and two billion plus Christians. I dont think we can spraed the Jews thin enough to have them be guilty for all the crap in this world people like you would want everybody to think.’
I don’t know why you equate Zionists with Jews? I NEVER said so in my comment! You are right though re the Jews, there are indeed far fewer than 20 million Semitic (real) Jews in this world, most of whom don’t want a state of Israel by the way. (Just ask them.)
There are millions of non-Semitic Khazar and non-Semitic Sephardi Jews (Mongol tribes from central Asia, Kazakhstan etc., who converted to Judaism (Talmudism would be more accurate) around AD 1000, as well as Berber-Semitic offspring, who came from North Africa, Spain), in this world though. Most Zionists belong to these groups. Although only a minute number of these groups are Zionists (I hope!).
Some Zionists are neither non-Semitic nor Semitic Jews! Israel consist of 80% non-Semitic ‘Jews’.
Work that one out for yourself!
I don’t want Zionism in this world, just as I don’t want Scientology in this world. I don’t hate Jews, Semitic or non-Semitic either. I had some Jewish boyfriends, we had lots of fun.
Examples of non-Semitic Khazar Jews are these pleasant fellows: Rothschild, Kissinger, Wolfowitz etc. Rockefeller is a Sephardi non-Semitic Jew. Larry King, Richard Quest, Wolf Blitzer etc. are all Khazar Jews, though obviously not of the Rothschild callousness (I hope).
Third, CNN = CIA, has to be the biggest nonsense I’ve heard in a while.
According to information widely available Francesco Cossiga, prime minister of Italy from 1985 – 1992, said quite openly that 9/11 was carried out by the CIA and Mossad!
It’s fact that the media, especially CNN and Fox played along with broadcasting the ‘inserted’ airplanes and interviewing the planted ‘eye witnesses’. Check it out on Youtube.
Have a nice day.
