There are no homosexuals in Iran

LinkRemember how Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came to Columbia a few years ago and said that there were no gays in Iran? Well, here's why.

And more people accuse Israel of 'pinkwashing' than protest this sort of thing in Iran.

And yet in protests here in the US, you'll see gay and lesbian groups participating in Israel-bashing protests, demonstrations. Nary an anti-Iran comment from the gay/lesbian organizations, nor from NOW, the Natl. Org. of Women.

I can only conclude from what I read that if a person or organization is part of the Left, they must follow the entire secular theology of the Left, or be ostracized, attacked.

So, we see the above named organizations and individuals participating in protests, demos, etc. against Israel, the ONLY country in the ME that doesn't persecute gays, lesbians, radical feminists.

Whereas in "Palestine", any Arab country, they would at least be persecuted. Certainly in Iran, those people would be subject to the Sharia death penalty and their organizations destroyed.

I know there is the Queers for Palestine, but generally I believe most gays do not support such a group. In fact, in New York City, the Israeli Consulate has a major float in the Gay Pride Parade, yearly, and is the only consulate to do so. Moreover, 'Palestine' is not featured whatsoever. (Big shock! Not.) I believe that most gays simply do not know much or care about Israel or 'Palestine.'

Anyway, the problem with the gay community is that they are so focused on domestic politics that they forget that there is a bigger picture, and gays abroad are dying every day. I do not see the Human Rights Campaign doing much for gays in Iran or elsewhere. This is a damned shame.
