'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.

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.

Okay, I thought that orthodox Jews in particular had severe problems with handling pork.
