AP Press Human Rights Watch: Iraqi gays tortured and killed

"BAGHDAD (AP) -- Militiamen are torturing and killing gay Iraqi men with impunity in a systematic campaign that has spread from Baghdad to several other cities, a prominent human rights group said in a report."

"Murders are committed with impunity, admonitory in intent, with corpses dumped in garbage or hung as warnings on the street," the 67-page report said.

"Reliable numbers weren't available, Human Rights Watch said, blaming a combination of the failure of authorities to investigate such crimes and the stigma preventing families from reporting the deaths. But it cited a well-informed U.N. official as saying in April that the death toll was probably "in the hundreds."

LGBT In Iraq is a Death Sentence | LGBT في العراق حكم الاعدام

Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people in Iraq are being routinely hunted and murdered. Those LGBT people who have gone under ground can not contact their relatives out of fear that their own family will kill them.

The BBC is verifying this horrifying reality. Transgender people who prior to the American occupation were living authentically have all been murdered. The remaining queer community living in terror are now being stopped by local militia's and humiliated, beaten, dismembered and burned to death.

How many gay men have ever put on a piece of women's clothing? In Iraq this would be your fate.

"A report by Amnesty International shows Iran, Saudi Arabia and China as being responsible for 90 per cent of all executions in 2008."

"Now, Iran is proposing a new law that could see the death sentence imposed on internet bloggers who post offensive material on the web."

Al Jazeera's Nazanin Sadri reports.

At planetransgender I seek to contact LGBT people in countries that I've had have few visitors from or have a goverment that persecutes LGBT people. Recently I've had some readers from Iran, brave people who refuse to live in shackles. These people's lifes are now in danger.

النظام العراقي الحاكم بدعم من قوى الاحتلال الامريكي والبريطاني هو المسؤول عن تفاقم وانتشار العنف الطائفي والمذهبي

غداة دخول قوات الاحتلال الى العراق انتشرت الفوضى والفساد وفقد اي احساس بالامن والامان لدى المواطن العراقي العادي.
ومع ظهور الاحزاب الدينية المدعومة من قبل المرجعيات, وانتشار المليشيات وفرق الموت وتورط الاحزاب في قتل المواطنين وارتكاب الفظاعات من تطهير عرقي على الهوية والخلفية المذهبية .

ولم تستثنى الاقليات الدينية والمذهبية واقليات اخرى مثل مثليي الجنس الذين تم قبولهم واثبتوا انسجامهم واندماجهم في المجتمع العراقي على مر الازمان وخصوصا في عهد النظام السابق.

اما اليوم وبعد ظهور حكومات تستقي قراراتها من مرجعيات النجف, ولعل هيمنة رجال الدين في الحياة السياسية واليومية في الشارع

والمشهد العراقي خير دليل على ما الى اليه العراق اليوم
