AIRLINERS.NET CREW HEAD MODERATOR
Quote: Sitting on the floor, wearing traditional Islamic clothes and holding an old notebook, Abu Hamizi, 22, spends at least six hours a day searching internet chatrooms linked to gay websites. He is not looking for new friends, but for victims.
"It is the easiest way to find those people who are destroying Islam and who want to dirty the reputation we took centuries to build up," he said. When he finds them, Hamizi arranges for them to be attacked and sometimes killed.

Quoting ManuCH (Thread starter):
What do you think? Is there any hope for Iraqi gays? Can the authorities do anything to stop this, or is the situation still too unstable?
I think it will go ignored because violence and hate against gays is relatively tolerated in most of the world, even in the U.S. In Iraq, where violence and hate against religions and ethnic groups are common and often tolerated, gays have no chance.
I hope some country gives them asylum. But it won't happen.

Quoting Afterburner (Reply 3): Ironically, this intolerance happens after Iraq has been "liberated".
Well, religion was allowed into the mix. Of course intolerance happened. The first rule of being a religion in the presence of other religions is that you have to be completely intolerant of any opposing views or your religion is in danger.
Just ask the Southern Baptists if they'd be willing to compromise with the Jews on the view of whether there is a Holy Trinity or not.
