Islamic extremist continue to prove themselves the leading enemies of LGBT individuals. The latest example comes from Syria where a 15 year old teenage boy accused of being gay was thrown to his death from a tall building. The image above is disturbing, but needs to be seen because it is the face of what religion more often than not brings to the world: hatred, death, violence, the embrace of ignorance, and bigotry. And Islam has no monopoly on this evil, since America Christofascists are animated by the same hatred of others even though - at least as yet - they have not embraced wide spread violence. Aranews.net has coverage. Here are excerpts:
Militants of the Islamic State (ISIS) executed a teenage boy by throwing him off a roof in Syria’s eastern city of Deir ez-Zor for being gay, local sources reported on Friday.
The 15-year-old boy was arrested by ISIS militants on charges of homosexuality and he was thrown from the top of a building in central Deir ez-Zor.
“The horrific execution took place in front of a large crowd,” a local media activist and an eyewitness told ARA News in Deir ez-Zor.
“The boy was accused of being engaged in a homosexual relation with the prominent ISIS officer Abu Zaid al-Jazrawi,” media activist Sarai al-Din told ARA News.
While the boy was executed, Abu Zaid was expelled to Iraq after being deprived of his position.
The ISIS-linked Sharia Court had issued a decision to execute every gay man by throwing him from the top of a building.
The extremist group has executed dozens of allegedly gay men in its areas of control in Syria and Iraq in the recent months.
“Daesh accuses people of being gay only on basis of some superficial information without any investigation. Although the Islamic law bans homosexuality, but the brutal punishment by Daesh has never been witnessed throughout history,” civil rights activist Raed Ahmed told ARA News in a previous interview.
Again, it is important to remember that but for the level of violence they employ, American Christofascists 9to whom Republicans prostitute themselves) are really no different than the ISIS extremists: they seek to force their views on all and ultimately seek a far right Christian theocracy.
