Muslim lesbian couple who claim they will be killed if deported to Israel due to their sexuality is being given second chance to remain in Canada
An Israeli Muslim lesbian couple who claim they will be killed if deported to Israel due to their sexuality is being given a second chance to remain in Canada.
According to the Toronto Sun newspaper, Iman Musa and Majida Mugrabi who are currently living in Toronto, arrived in Canada from Tel Aviv in 2007 and filed unsuccessful refugee claims that were appealed to the Federal Court of Canada.
Judge Roger Hughes on March 8 granted the couple another hearing by an Immigration and Refugee Board based on new information that shows one of Mugrabis cousins confessed to the honor killing of his sister 12-years ago.
The couple in an emotional letter presented to the courts claimed they would be killed if forced to return to Israel for being a same-sex Muslim couple.
We have a same sex relationship, which is forbidden back home, the couple wrote. We have dishonored our families by running away to try and start a life with each other."
The couple, through their lawyer, Daniel Kingwell, said they were pleased by the courts decision but still fear for their lives.
As Muslim women, we dont have any rights in our families, the couple wrote. The fact that we are lesbians does not help."
The letter claimed Mugrabis grandfather is a Muslim sheikh, who repeatedly threatened to kill her. Musa's brother, from Ramleh, has "threatened to kill her if she does not leave her lesbian relationship and marry a male, the women alleged. There are several police complaints regarding the threats of her brother."
Same sex relationships are not permitted or accepted in all Arabic countries, they said. There are many stories about honor killings and we are victims of this."
There are several police complaints regarding the threats of her brother."
Kingwell said the women will be killed if deported to Israel.
The situation is not the greatest for gays or lesbians in some Arab countries, Kingwell said on Saturday, adding many honour killings occur from family members who slay their same-sex or gay relatives.
This couple face a real threat from Muslims in a Conservative country," Kingwell said. No date has been set for a new hearing.
While Israel is known as a country highly tolerant of its thriving LGBT community, it is a well known fact that the Arab communities in Israel still hold an extremely conservative outlook and condemn the LGBT lifestyle.
To the headline: Israel will not kill you, it is all muslim countries that will kill you.
Maybe they’ll be sent to the Muslim side of town.
Canada is in a pickle here. If they grant this immigration status, they will attract much of the world’s gay muslims.
Lesbians: Islam’s worst nightmare.
I think we can handle half a dozen more people....
Muslim lesbians? Talk about a liberal’s wet dream!
“Same sex relationships are not permitted or accepted in all Arabic countries, they said.”
Israel is NOT an Arab country, couple of morons.
Substitute the word Canada for Israel. They are in as much danger in Canada as Israel
In Israel??? I find that very hard to believe unless this is MSM-speak to get around saying Gaza.
it is a well known fact that the Arab communities in Israel still hold an extremely conservative outlook and condemn the LGBT lifestyle.
Interesting connect here.
Conservative = kill
Muslims = kill
Conservatives = tolerance
Leftist = accept or be killed
A lesbian couple?
Not to put too fine a point on it, but,
without one of them having the correct God-given plumbing with which to COUPLE, they are not, nor will they EVER be a COUPLE. They’re just a pair of old reprobates, living out what Paul described in the first chapter of Romans.
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
izlum is a religion of peace. Anyone who says otherwise will be beheaded.
I would think they could grant this status on the narrow facts here - make it clear that they are not granting (and will not grant) this status to any/all gay muslims, but that they are doing so in this case, because these particular people face a threat to their lives if deported (based on the family history of honor killings, etc.)
as if being a Muslim wasn't by itself a big enough impediment to happiness...
LOL! Israel is the "gayest" nation on Earth. Keep 'em in Canada. The last thing Israel needs is more dykes or more Muslims.
Any of the Muslim World's homosexuals can "marry" in the US, and become a US citizen automatically.
Oh so now it’s Israel! I thought Israel didn’t exist... that it’s really Palestine or Occupied Territories. But now when these reprobate mooslims are desperate to avoid their savage mooslim relatives and culture, they make sure to call their loathesome mooslim home “ISRAEL”.
Why am I not surprised? Say, how about a compromise. Afghanistan is a loving and tolerant place.
They recognize that lesbianism is fatal in Islam, and women have no rights in Islam, yet they remain muslim. Weird.
