Iranian militia declares Iraq is ‘not a country for filthy homosexuals’ in chilling rant

A ‘pro-Iranian enforcer’ in Iraq has declared that Iraq is not a country for “filthy” homosexuals, in a move that LGBT+ activist Peter Tatchell says is leveraging homophobia to “eliminate anti-government protesters”. In a video posted on Thursday, Ali Al-Husseini of the Iranian-sponsored Popular Mobilisation Units (PMU) launched an anti-gay diatribe ahead of a planned demonstration against the Iraqi government and US forces in Iraq. “Iraq is not a country for collaboration, espionage, Joker , or homosexuals,” he said, according to a translation by The Middle East Media Research Institute...

Saudi Arabia U-turns on declaring feminism ‘extremism’. Homosexuality and atheism definitely still a crime, though

Government officials in Saudi Arabia have backtracked on labelling feminism “extremism.” But homosexuality and atheism are still crimes, they reiterated. The claims were first made last weekend in a promotional video shared by Saudi Arabia’s Presidency of State Security on Twitter. Reuters reported that the video listed homosexuality, feminism and atheism as takfir – the Islamist militant practice of labelling followers of other schools of Islam unbelievers.
