U.N. General Assembly Chief Says Homosexuality is Unacceptable

My friend Damien sent this story to me and I have no idea how I missed it. The new General Assembly chief of the United Nations is a Libyan Muslim named Ali Abdussalam Treki who shares many of the basic Muslim values Islam has taught for centuries uninterrupted by an Enlightenment of Reformation. One of those values is that Homosexuality is a crime that needs to be severely punished:

From The Last Crusade:

Ali Abussalam, the newly-installed president of the United Nations General Assembly, Ali Abdussalam Treki, said yesterday that homosexuality is “not really acceptable” and that homosexual acts should be treated as crimes.

Treki, who is the Libyan secretary of African Union Affairs, opened the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly Friday with a press conference.

One question concerned the UN resolution which calls for the universal decriminalisation of homosexuality.

In reply, the new UN chief said: “That matter is very sensitive, very touchy. As a Muslim, I am not in favour of it . . . it is not accepted by the majority of countries. My opinion is not in favour of this matter at all. I think it’s not really acceptable by our religion, our tradition.”

Attempting to clarify his remarks, Treki added: “It is not acceptable in the majority of the world. And there are some countries that allow that, thinking it is a kind of democracy . . . I think it is not.”

Queers for Palestine may want to examine that statement before their next protest. Homosexuals are routinely executed by Muslim governments around the world, including by Hamas which Queers for Palestine support politically and rumor has it financially. The Infidel Blogger Alliance points out that more than 4000 gays have been executed in Iran alone since 1979. The number when you include all the Muslim countries that execute gays is probably closer to 40,000 but no one really knows for sure.

So far Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) has been the only politician I’ve seen come out strongly to condemn this madness. Via GOProud:

“The anti-gay bigotry spewed by this Qaddafi shill demonstrates once again that the UN has been hijacked by advocates of hate and intolerance.

“Likewise, the leadership of the UN Development Program is held by the Iranian regime, which denies the presence of gays in Iran even as it murders them and other innocent citizens.

“We must ensure that billions annually in U.S. taxpayer dollars no longer foot the bill for the UN’s anti-freedom agenda without significant reform.

“Congress must demand better by enacting pending legislation that would leverage our contributions to the UN to produce sweeping, meaningful reform of that body.”

Isn’t it time to pull out of the United Nations, at least until it becomes something more than an international  facilitator of Islamism?

  1. Rob Taylor,

    Personally I find it disturbing that there aren’t too many people who are upset with this. I’m glad that at least Ms. Lehtinen is, but you would think that more people would be.

    And you are correct, this is another good reason to oppose the UN.

  2. I’m for disbanding the UN anyway. It’s nothing but a useless, corrupt organization, and it will always be that despite any efforts of reform. Corruption is the lifeblood of any large-scale political body. They couldn’t function without it, because any agreements always necessitate secret, backroom deals that usually involves lining somebody’s pockets with the money of taxpayers. It was always and will always remain a bad idea whose time has long since come to go by the wayside.

    As for homosexuals supporting Islamists, that’s no big surprise, that’s an example of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” kind of thinking. It’s also another reason I don’t get all worked up over gay rights.
