'No homosexuals in Iran': Ahmadinejad
6 hours ago

NEW YORK (AFP) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad skirted a question about the treatment of homosexuals in Iran on Monday, saying in a speech at a top US university that there were no gays in Iran.

"In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country," Ahmadinejad said to howls and boos among the Columbia University audience.

"In Iran we do not have this phenomenon, I don't know who has told you that we have it," he said.

Ahmadinejad was challenged during his appearance on Amnesty International figures that suggested that 200 people had been executed in Iran so far this year, among them homosexuals.

"Don't you have capital punishment in the United States? You do too. In Iran there is capital punishment," he said.

Now he’ll make sure there are no homos in Iran after that statement just to prove himself true.

The Kossacks will find some way to forgive him that remark. For crying out loud, there’s a group calling itself “Queers for Palestine.” Notwithstanding the short shrift Palestinian homosexuals get in the territories.

Ever since he said this I keep thinking about the song from An American Tail, “There are No Cats in America”.

Of course there are no (open) homosexuals in Iran. They're all put to death as soon as there's an allegation. IIRC, the preferred method is to bind them beneath a stone wall, and then push the wall over on them, crushing them to death.

'No homosexuals in Iran'

The major point is that he's obviously lying. And, if he's lying about the this issue, then how can I (or anyone else for that matter) believe him in the context of his intentions with Nuclear Energy?

He don’t go out with girls anymore.
He don’t intend to marry.
He likes boys now.
WHEE! He’s a fairy!

There are no homosexuals because Iran practices, “Do ask, don’t live.”

Maybe his statement that there are no gays in Iran was Clintonesque. Technically since he was at Columbia University and not in Iran. I think he is Gay.

Actually the crushing-them-under-stone-walls things was the Taliban's favorite method of executing gays in Afghanistan. Current Iranian practice favors strangling them slowly by hanging them with cranes.

In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country,

Pay attention to EXACTLY what he is saying.

"Like in your country" could mean "they are different from the homos in your country".

None there 'cuz they're all dead?

Of course, fanaticism and hatred know no political, cultural, religious or psychological boundaries. The Iranian AntiChrist proves it by his very existence and by our failure to cull his kind from the human family.

No, what he is saying is that something about freedom or in the American culture creates homosexuals.

It’s one thing to say something like that when you own the media, quite another in a free society.

OR...he could be telling the truth simply because the homosexulas in the Islamic Republic of Iran are all KILLED. They don't exist because they're DEAD.

Youre kidding, arent you? Buggery is rampant over there, the discouragement of casual relations bewtween unmarrieds and the high rate of polygamy encourages clandestine buggery and pedophiliac rape. They just dont want it out of the closet. Its more than rumor that many of the powerful mullahs in Iran have various "go-boys" to satisfy their carnal needs..

Let me tell you something, the Iran "leadership" is filled with quite a few perverted sickees, just like in Hitler's governement. Thats the nature of Fascistic tyrannies.

"In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country,"

That is true. None like 'we' have in 'this' country. Most are in hiding, I'm sure. In other words, those daring enough to go public are being rounded up and executed, if any of the words coming out of Iran are true. There may still be some daring enough to admit it, but he has his best people on that...
