With thanks to TheGatewayPundit.com, here’s a look at more disturbing revelations from the Middle East, specifically Syria. While the White House in Washington, D.C. is lit up in celebrating the Supreme Court’s recent decision making gay marriage the law of the land, I wonder how many people in America’s LGBT community have even a clue about what Muslims are doing to gay people in the World of Islam.
I know we’re relentlessly told by our media pundits and politicians that these Islamic State of Syria and Iraq people (ISIS), and the unthinkable acts of cruelty they’re inflicting on their fellow men, have nothing at all to do with the true, peaceful Islam. Nonetheless, they seem to be in charge in much of Syria and gaining ground in neighboring Shariah-compliant nations. It’s worth remembering that the Carter, G.W. Bush and Obama administrations midwifed the re-birth of all of this horror by providing encouragement, or overt U.S. military support, to Islamic revolutionaries’ overthrow of the Shah of Iran, Saddam Hussein in Iraq, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and now Bashar Assad in Syria. It was tragically, laughably called the Arab Spring
Sometimes in the Middle East there are no good guys fighting the internecine wars. Our recent presidents have failed miserably in Middle Eastern foreign policy matters. Better it would have been for America to stay out of Islam’s Hell holes and mind our own business than being accomplices to toppling despotic heads of state. George Washington gave us fair warning about becoming entangled in foreign affairs in his farewell address.
So, according to current reports you will probably never see in our nation’s mainstream media outlets, while America’s homosexual community celebrates its victory in the Supreme Court, we hear not a word from that small, but astonishingly powerful, sector of America’s populace (which somehow has grabbed press headlines) about how Islam barbarically deals with homosexuality.
(WARNING: Link to a graphic video is just ahead.) A link, also provided by The GatewayPundit.com, to the video-recorded executions of four gays by throwing them from a high building, is here.
There are reported provisions in Muslim doctrine which justify throwing gays from the tops of pinnacles. Here is a link to a brief MEMRI video clip of Kuwaiti Cleric Tareq Sweidan on Qatar TV, in which he which clearly elaborates on the punishment.
Here’s another MEMRI YouTube video, which I have embedded, in which teacher Sheik ‘Abd Al-Qader Shiba Al-Hamad of the Al-Madawi Mosque in Al-Madina asserts the same idea, again without giving us a reliable reference to the original source.
According to an essay found in AnsweringIslam.org, and numerous other online Muslim informational sites, the original source for the tall pinnacle punishment was Ibn Abbas, Muhammad’s cousin.
Meanwhile, oblivious to what is going on in the World of Islam, America’s gays may celebrate freely in the land of the free and home of the brave. How much longer we’ll remain in such a state of liberty is anyone’s guess.
