REPORT: More Executions of Gays Imminent in Iran

Doug Ireland, who has been following the story of the two youths hanged in Iran in July, has learned from sources that two more similar executions are planned for the end of August. His contacts at The International Federation of Iranian Refugees (IFIR), a 15-year-old left-wing organization opposed to the Islamist regime, have been reporting increased surveillance and a heavy crackdown on gays since the hangings. The two gay men tried and sentenced to death for homosexuality, Farbod Mostaar and Ahmad Chooka, are reportedly scheduled to be put to death on August 28th in the Iranian city of Arak.

  2. I concur, the Iranian Fundamentalist Zealots who are performing these executions in the name of "Allah," are disgusting. More worrisome, if given the chance, Christian Fundamentalist Zealots in this country would do the same thing here. This just reinforces my belief that religion does nothing but spread hatred and bigotry. Religion itself is the true evil plaguing mankind.

  3. I agree it's awful for gays there, but I do wish the left would get a little more exercised about the looming Iranian nuclear threat. Gays are such a small part of the bigger evil picture over there.
