Iraqi Militias Step Up Murders Of Gay Men
ABC News is reporting that six more gay men have been found murdered by Iraqi militias as the genocide of homosexuals there continues.
Two gay men were killed in Baghdad's Sadr City slum, and police confirmed they found the bodies of four more men, all killed during a 10-day period after an unknown Shiite militia group urged a crackdown on homosexuals in the country. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs believes as many as 30 people have been killed during the last three months because they were -- or were perceived to be -- gay. In a letter to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the human rights group Amnesty International called for "urgent and concerted action" to end the violence against the gay community, the group reported on its Web site.An Iraqi soldier told ABC: "Two young men were killed Thursday. They were sexual deviants. Their tribes killed them to restore their family honor." Five coffee shops reported to be gay hangouts have been set on fire in the last ten days.
Two gay men were found elsewhere in Sadr City, alive but bearing the scars of severe torture. They were beaten, their chests showed signs of cigarette burns, and when police found them they were rushed to the hospital. They had been sodomized with iron bars, sources said. Other men said they had had their chests slashed and their nipples cut off.
And our government continues to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
