While we have evidence of an Iraqi gay helping defeat the anti-gay forces of Islamofascism, Michael Petrelis alerts us to the silence of Human Rights Watch (HRW) on the persecution of gays in a nation ruled by an Islamofascist regime. According to Petrelis:
HRW, for unknown reasons, omits gays not just from their 2007 country roundup, but actually from the 2006, 2005, and 2004 versions.
Guess executing gays doesn’t count as a human rights’ violation.Â Seems HRW would rather criticize the US than cite actual human rights’ abuses by our nation’s adversaries. I wonder which gay organization will be the first to challenge HRW’s omission. Given its record, I don’t expect HRC to fault HRW for its omission. They’d rather feature photos celebrating celebrities attending their LA Gala than stand up for gay victims of non-Western governments.
What is it about these organizations that they don’t want to detail the plight of gay people in foreign lands? While they complain (and rightfully so) that most American states don’t recognize our unions, they seem oblivious to even worse problems our fellows face, real human rights’ violations. Gay people being imprisoned, tortured, executed merely for expressing their sexuality.
As we learn the truth about the plight of gays under Islamofascist regimes in the Middle East and at least one Communist regime in the Caribbean, maybe this reader will better understand who the “real foes” of gay people really are.
