Iran Sentences Gay Couple to Death

Iraqi Forces Capture ISIS Executioner Abu Omer Who Brutally Murdered Gay Men


Via The Sun:

The jihadi kingpin – nicknamed “White Beard” – is said to have presided over dozens of killings in the terror group’s former stronghold of Mosul.

But now the bearded killer has been nabbed after locals revealed his hiding place in the city, according to AhlulBayt News Agency.

The sick jihadi, identified as Abu Omer, was one of the terror group’s most fearsome henchmen.

He was reportedly present when homosexuals were thrown from buildings and victims beheaded and stoned to death for minor offences.

In one such clip from March 2015, three men accused of homosexuality and blasphemy are forced to their knees and publicly beheaded.

The blindfolded men are seen kneeling in the centre of what appears to be a roundabout in front of a crowd of people as a masked executioner stands by with a long, rusty blade.

An elderly man that appears to be Omer addresses the crowd as the executioner positions his sword above the men’s heads in the unnamed city in northern Iraq.

Abu Omer’s capture means the ISIS chief now faces the possibility of his own execution.

The line forms behind me.

U.S. Congress FINALLY Condemns Anti-Gay Violence in Chechnya

Finally,  four months after the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a nearly bipartisan resolution in June condemning the violence and persecution against gay men in Chechnya, last night, the U.S. Senate adopted the resolution by voice vote.

The bipartisan Senate Resolution (S. Res.) 211, which was introduced by Senators Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Ed Markey (D-MA), is nearly identical to the U.S. House of Representatives resolution

S. Res. 211 “calls on Chechen officials to immediately cease the abduction, detention, and torture of individuals on the basis of their actual or suspected sexual orientation, and hold accountable all those involved in perpetrating such abuses.” It also calls on the U.S. government to “continue to condemn the violence and persecution in Chechnya,” something that President Trump and Secretary Tillerson have failed to do publicly

For three months, the Canadian federal government has been secretly spiriting gay Chechen men from Russia to Canada, under a clandestine program.  About a third of those who were being sheltered in Russian safe houses – are now in Toronto and other Canadian cities

Sources estimate that Chechen authorities have rounded up and detained, tortured and in some cases have murdered  more than 100 gay men in secret prisons including the recent revelation that Russian pop-singer  Zelimkhan Bakaev was arrested, tortured and then murdered for being gay.  His body at the writing of this post  has still not been found.

Other than the long awaited U.S .resolution America has done nothing to help save the persecuted gay men of Chechnya.

Russian Diplomat Claims That Chechnya Gay Concentration Camp Is Just “A Storeroom”

Russian Diplomat Claims That Chechnya Gay Concentration Camp Is Just "A Storeroom"

Russian official Dmitry Alushkin, the press attaché for the Russian embassy has announced that the “authorized” official government bodies of the Russian Federation, in cooperation with the government of the Chechen Republic, have investigated the claims made by journalist Elena Milashina in her articles published in the Novaya Gazeta newspaper and in other Russian media outlets, dismissing any and all the allegations as merely of a gay concentration camp as “a propaganda campaign against Russia.”

Alushkin states:

“In the building—which in the past belonged to the military government (address: 99B Kadyrov Street, in the city of Argun) and called in the articles a ‘secret prison’—is a storeroom, while a parking lot is located on the nearby space.”

“There are no victims of persecution, threats or violence,” he adds. “Neither law enforcement authorities nor the [U.N.] Human Rights Council… have received complaints on this matter.”

also claims that the day after Novaya Gazeta published its first report, Alushkin claims, a Muslim council was convened in Grozny, drawing “6,000 residents and community elders.” Four days later, public figures, journalists and activists allegedly traveled to Argun to investigate for themselves.

Alushkin  ended his report by saying  “the Russian system of government is of a democratic nature,” and that people should rely “on objective and reliable data, not on rumors and speculation, to analyze the political developments in our country.

How do you say bullshit in Russian?
