Iran has killed 4000 homosexuals; many others do so regularly. Islamic leaders call for such killings. What’s so surprising about Orlando?
There is no way for Muslims to say that the killings in Orlando were not representative of Islam.
- In at least 10 Muslim countries, homosexuality is punishable by death. [Source: Washington Post; 4,000 homosexuals have been executed in Iran since their revolution in 1979; Saudis to execute gays who show their sexuality in public and online]
- The Quran and Hadith are clear about requiring homosexuals to be killed [e.g. see this, this, or this].
- Islamic leaders regularly preach hatred and even killing against homosexuals:
Farrokh Sekaleshfar, a Shiite cleric educated in London, declared of homosexuality in 2013: “Death is the sentence. We know there’s nothing to be embarrassed about this. Death is the sentence.” He was speaking at the Husseini Islamic Center outside Orlando. Yes, Orlando. He spoke there again in April. [Source] – video below.
Ayatollah Ali Sistani: “when asked, “What is [Islam’s] judgment on sodomy and lesbianism?” Sistani replied: “Forbidden. Those involved in the act should be punished. In fact, sodomites should be killed in the worst manner possible.”” [Source]
When Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of the world’s leading Sunni clerics and chairman of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, was asked how gay people should be punished, he replied: “Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them, and so on. There is disagreement. . . . The important thing is to treat this act as a crime.” [Source]
In 2009 Anjem Choudary, an infamous London imam and self-proclaimed “judge of the Shariah Court of the U.K.,” stated in a press conference that all homosexuals should be stoned to death. Here in the U.S., Muzammil Siddiqi, former president of the Islamic Society of North America, has written: “Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption . . . No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education.” [Source]
Anti-gay Mulsim sheik Shady Alsuleiman attends Turnbull’s dinner. This article also cites the “Australian Federation of Islamic Councils president Hafez Kassem who said he was “very upset” by the Orlando massacre but suggested people should abstain from homosexual acts or be treated with “medication” if they could not. “There is no punishment, there is a treatment,” he said. “Our sharia says treatment. We have to give treatment, medication, like the prophet said force yourself (to abstain from) something like this,” Mr Kassem said.” [Sanjeev: this is a blatant lie. The Hadiths are clear: kill homosexuals]
The Australian National Imams Council, of which Sheik Alsuleiman is president, has at least three executive members who believe the only punishment for homosexuality is the death penalty, according to Islamic law. [Source]
So what’s surprising if a Muslim goes and massacres gays? Isn’t that precisely what he is required to do by Islam?
This man is currently in Sydney. He is now whitewashing what he said.
IT IS A FRAUD ON HUMANITY TO SUGGEST THAT ORLANDO KILLINGS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT EVIL LIAR, MOHAMMED.
“Where did Omar Mateen learn to hate not just homosexuality but the homosexuals themselves? Where did he come to believe that they deserved to die and he had a right to kill them? Where might he have gotten such ideas? Who teaches this?
Well, not only do the Taliban and ISIS hurl homosexuals off buildings and stone them to death but 10 nations — Mauritania, Niger, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE, Yemen and Pakistan — impose the death penalty for homosexual acts.
“Peoples of these nations approve, for such laws find sanction in the holy book, the Quran. Sharia teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death.” [Source]
