Something for the multi-culti crowd to chew on

The moral equivalence crowd, the one that says all cultures are created equal, except that non-Western cultures are better than others, is going to have to pretzel itself severely to deal with this one:

Homosexuals deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both, an Iranian leader told British MPs during a private meeting at a peace conference, The Times has learnt.

Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged.

President Ahmadinejad, questioned by students in New York two months ago about the executions, dodged the issue by suggesting that there were no gays in his country.

[Some examples of] Sharia’s victims

2005

— Homosexuals Farbod Mostaar and Ahmad Chooka sentenced to death. Iran said Chooka had kidnapped, knifed and raped a student

— A woman called Soghra was sentenced to stoning for adultery and being an accomplice to her husband’s murder

— Two men executed in public after being found guilty of a homosexual relationship. A newspaper said they were convicted of sodomy, rape and kidnapping

— Zhila Izadi, 13, sentenced to stoning after becoming pregnant with her brother’s child

2006

— Malek Ghorbany sentenced to stoning for adultery

— Leila Qomi sentenced to stoning for adultery and assisting a man who killed her husband. He received 100 lashes

2007

— Jafar Kiana stoned for adultery. His female lover Mokarrameh Ebrahimi sentenced to the same fate

Right now, even faced with this stark admission about Iran’s genocidal approach towards homosexuals, the multi-culti governments in Europe are in denial. Even as England is happy to ban Israelis who note, accurately, that Muslims are out to kill Israelis, and to welcome terrorists with open arms, and even as Holland is sending into hiding yet another person who has offended Islam, both England and Holland are working hard to send a teenager back to Iran, where it is almost certain that he will be hanged, as his gay friend and compatriot was last year:

A gay teenager who faces being hanged if sent back to Iran is a step closer to being forced to return today, after the Netherlands followed Britain in refusing his appeal for asylum.

Mehdi Kazemi, 19, came to London to study English in 2005 but says he later discovered that his boyfriend had been arrested by the Iranian police, charged with sodomy and hanged.

He claimed asylum in Britain, saying that he feared for his life if he returned. However, his case was refused late last year, so he fled to the Netherlands.

A Dutch court today, however, ordered him to return to Britain, leaving the teenager once again facing deportation.

According to Iranian human rights campaigners, more than 4,000 gay men and lesbians have been executed since the Ayatollahs seized power in 1979.

Borg Palm, his lawyer, said today that the Dutch court had ruled he could only claim asylum in the UK – but that it was not “totally sure” he would be forced to return to Britain immediately as a European court could temporarily halt the move.

The British and Dutch stance is not surprising. In the world of cognitive dissonance, if you’ve hung your hat on the multi-culti tree, and proudly proclaimed that “they are just like us, only better,” then the fact that contradictory information comes along showing that they are not just like us but are, in fact, cruel and bestial, must be disregarded — and damn the consequences for the innocent.

Multiculturalism — you’ve got to love it, since it takes false facts and erroneous principles, and out of all those falsities manages to create real death and pain.

    Argh!!!! So many great posts and so little time to read and enjoy them all!

    Bookworm, in my opinion you hit the nail squarely on the head with this observation:

    “In the world of cognitive dissonance, if you’ve hung your hat on the multi-culti tree, and proudly proclaimed that “they are just like us, only better,” then the fact that contradictory information comes along showing that they are not just like us but are, in fact, cruel and bestial, must be disregarded — and damn the consequences for the innocent.”

    That is precisely the end result of multiculturalism – as you have noted several times before, why don’t we ever hear from feminist and other women’s organizations when there is news about the horrid mistreatment and abuse of women and girls in the Middle East and South Asia? I believe it is because even liberals and other followers of multiculturalism understand that they can’t criticize the practices of these other cultures and religions when they have spent the last 40 years preaching about how much more fabulous and wise they are compared to us. So instead, they make the conscious decision to remain silent in the face of horrible crimes.

    And really, don’t their livelihoods, ego, and pride depend on it? If these folks were ever to face up to the reality of what actually goes on in all of these other cultures and religions, they’d have to stop working for their practically worthless multicultural-driven organizations, renounce a large segment of their life’s work, and risk losing their influence and prestige. Few of these folks are willing to do that, even if it is for the sake of a truth that they know down deep exists.

    As always, Bookworm, excellent posts and analysis. I read your site almost every day.

    There’s two overall factions amongst the people that want us out of Iraq. The first faction is the old and traditional faction. The Aristocrat heritage that focuses on self-glorification at the expense of the people. The second faction are the dupes. The people that actually believe the Aristocrats are the “people” or “out protecting the people’s interests”.

    To a certain extent, it is safe to acknowledge that the Aristocrat class has no conscience. They have the power and the knowledge to understand the consequences of their actions, like with the boy and Iran, but they just don’t particularly care, you know. The second faction cares, it just cares about stuff made up by the aristocrats.

    Everything from Mossad the secret Jewish council society to Blood for Oil, all made up by the slave masters of the human race.

    That’s being a Progressive for ya. Progressing humanity towards maximum entropy takes work, Book.

    Not to sound like a winney butt, (our daughter’s description of our son’s concerns about his grades. He’s on Dean’s List), but the oh so sensitive Europeans refuse to extradite wanted American felons back to the US because we have and occasionally apply the death penalty.
    Where do they get off with this delusional self-debasing behavior? Yes, I know the answer. Paris was ringed with riots two years ago by “alienated youths”, read Muslim teenagers.
    It will be interesting to see if Archbishop Williams excuses the first death by stoning of a homosexual in the courtyard of a British Mosque.

    We need to apply the death penalty against European bureaucrats and judges. Which, of course, is why they think Bush is mean and ruthless. They don’t really know how to recognize ruthlessness, so they fake it.
