Muslim Cleric: Kill All The Queers

A lack of message coordination in the Red-Pink-Green coalition.

A ROW has blown up over a claim a prominent Manchester Muslim has defended the execution of sexually-active gay people as "justified".

Arshad Misbahi, a junior Imam at the city's Central Mosque is alleged to have confirmed that it is an acceptable punishment in Iraq and Iran.

His comments are said to have been made to psychotherapist Dr John Casson who is researching the persecution of gays in Islamic states. But they have been condemned as "encouraging conflict between the area's large gay and Muslim communities.

I like how that's put -- encouraging conflict between gays and Muslims.

Because you know those British gays are just jonesing to blow themselves up in Islamic bookstores. And this may be the match that lights the fuse.


[The doctor recounted the cleric's contention:] "[Such laws] might result in the deaths of thousands, but if this deterred millions from having sex and spreading disease, then it was worthwhile to protect the wider community."

It is understood Imam Misbahi believes his comments were taken out of context and misrepresented. He says will be issuing a statement to clarify his views.

Ah, of course. It's so easy to mistake "I do not condone homosexual behavior" with "We should execute perhaps thousands of gays to stop the spread of disease." American leftists, such as Andrew Sullivan, always confuse those two statements.

Dean Esmay, meanwhile, is trying to figure out a way to call the accurate reportage of a Muslim cleric's statements "Islamophobic." If he can do so with an attack on a major blogger who will link him back and give him some hits, so much the better.

Thaks to jdubious for the Dean Esmay tip.
