    Sorry but the Sun is hardly a realiable source of information. Also if homosexual acts are punishable by death then the same would apply to the rapist. Unfortunately it takes a lot less than this to convince certain people to hate and kill in the name of a supernatural being.

  2. Mirjam Bader has a point but, on the other hand, I don’t think this would surprise me. Man-on-man sexual violence is, paradoxically, often a feature of extremely macho and homophobic cultures.

  3. Lifting “news” stories from the most vile homophobic and bigoted of the UK gutter press is a spectacularly bad move on the part of pink “news”….

  4. OMG! this is an outrage. This is supposed to be a liberal site, not one that will make us hate Al Qaeda and support neo-con ideas. I don’t care if this is actually happening because we don’t have to live under Shariah so its not our problem.

  5. Gavey-It is your problem when one of those suicide bombing terrorists/victims of male on male violent rape comes to bomb you and your family members. This should and does concern you.

  6. You don’t care that thousands upon thousands of lgbt people are being murdered and executed in the name of islam! You are indeed selfish just because its not happening to you, you obviosly have no compassion or regard for our brothers and sisters in islamic countries. Anyway this article isn’t really about lgbt people its just about straight men raping each other.

  7. Why are you liberals so skeptical about this information? If it was about Christians you would believe it without hesitation.

  8. I was already familiar with the emotional blackmailing of females in Islam to force them into a false dilemma.
    One terror cell member marries a female then arranges her rape by another member of the cell.
    She is told that under Sharia she will go to ”hell” as punishment and in any case must die.

    Either she can be murdered by relatives (like the husband) or she might be able to redeem herself in Allah’s eyes by dying in the act of trying to kill a few Jews, Christians or infidels at the same time.
    IF she opts to become a suicide bomber she thinks that she has a small chance to get into Paradise.

    Lovely.

    I think these young men are given that same option.
    After puberty they must not have homosexual relations as if they were boys.
    It is a death offense.
    BUT, since they are going to be put to death anyway, IF they die furthering the goal of worldwide caliphate they have a small chance of attaining Paradise, too.

    Typical of the left to discount these reports – as Aaron says, if it was fundamentalist christians the report would be accepted without question. Nothing surprises me about Al-Qaeda nor about Islam in general – it is the most pernicious, evil ‘religion’ It not only hates us gays but all sorts of other groups including – all women!!!!

  10. I wish this article had used some fact and given useful information, all it did was report on what may be a true story as tabloid gossip. Shame, Shame, Shame.

    Rape is more an act of violence and abuse than it is a sexual act. I would well believe that Al Qaeda members rape men to commit suicide bombings. And I believe they rape women to do the same. And I believe they drug people for the same reason. However in light of the nasty level of homophobia in the press in recent weeks could be another underhand way to demonise gay men.

  12. Another Chris 4 Feb 2009, 8:48pm

    The homophobia behind these gutter tabloid stories about gay sex turning guys into suicide bombers is pretty obvious. But male rape really is used as a weapon in some societies – including our own, which you know if you’ve ever watched OZ.

  13. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hwK_CSpBxsNuVUEaDuOwmSSCiqGwD964CM800

    In a separate prison interview with The Associated Press, with interrogators nearby, the woman said she was part of a plot in which young women were raped and then sent to her for matronly advice. She said she would try to persuade the victims to become suicide bombers as their only escape from the shame and to reclaim their honor.

  14. Many of us are educated and know that all countries use propaganda as a manipulative tool.
    Patriotism and nationalism is against the human. Institutions are also against the human; look at the insatiable institutions: the Banks, Medicine, Law and the Church.

  15. Pinknews seems to be run by a pro-racist organisation that promotes Israel. It simpy reproduces apparthied propaganda.

    “According to the Medical Examiner at Mohammed Nadir hospital in Tizi Ouzou, one of the three terrorists eliminated last week in a security barrier in the town of Tademaït, Department of Tizi Ouzou, had been victim of sexual abuse hours before his death.

    The coroner’s report was confirmed by another report of the Laboratory of Scientific police on the rumors about the practice of sodomy between members of the armed organization. Some leaders of the organization, as Aït Said, alias “Tahar”, responsible for external relations, considered as one of the most avid of these immoral practices.

    According to reliable source of Ennahar, the autopsy revealed a large tear in the anus of the terrorist, which confirms the sexual abuse he had had. In addition, semen analysis is underway to determine the perpetrator.

    The young terrorist subject of sexual abuse, was aged 22, from Diar El Djemaâ, ElHarrach. He would have joined terrorist groups in March 2008. He was a candidate to execute a suicide operation in the region of Boumerdes.

    “Abu Baçir El Assimi,” a repentant who left the terrorist activities in recent months said that the sexual act on young recruits aged between 16 to 19 was a means to urge them to commit suicide operations. These young victims of sexual abuse themselves seek death for fear of remaining prey in the hands of terrorist leaders. ”

    Ennahar / Katia A.

    The Sun appears to have lifted it from Ennahar an independent Algerian newpaper.

    (The daily newspaper ‘Ennahar is published, in Algiers, by ‘El Athir For the Press’ limited Enterprise, property of the two journalists Mr. Anis Rahmani and Souad Azzouz. This newspaper is considered as being the first independent daily in Algeria, published by journalists who have never worked in the sector of the state-controlled press.)

  17. God, us homosexuals… I depair. What are we like? Ooo, sorry – sarcasm mode off: F–k The Sun.

  18. Christian or Muslim? To be honest, nothing would really surprise me about the depths to which the fanatics of the ‘Abrahamic’ religions would stoop to gain or maintain their power and undue influence.

    If you can be persuaded that a Divine Creator is really like the literary characters Biblegod or Koranallah, then you’re ripe for ANY insanity, whatever it is…

    Its because of people like these that gay people aren’t safe in many areas of the largest european cities today… which makes me wonder why gays aren’t more outspoken about being the subject of persecution at the hands of jihadist supporters in cities like Amsterdam, Brussels, etc…

    sodomy is punished by death in islam
    and in Christianity we are sent to the fires of hell.
    Kids will get indoctrinated into anything .
    that is why religions should not be taught to minors .
    Mulims use commonly sodomy as women are not available.
    the younger kids regularly get raped by older ones

  21. Did anyone hear about this ‘mother of all believers’ an Iraqi woman has been using rape of young (at least 80) women to get them to turn themselves into suicide bombers – to rid themselves of the Islamic shame..
    http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25006101-12335,00.html

    – now we are hearing that they are also raping the males –

    You guys know that Muhammed slept with men – as well as a reported 66 women – of which he raped some – rape is permissible under Islam – if the woman is a captive of that man – i.e. he owns her. These things have been recorded in the Islamic Hadiths –

    Father Zakaria Botros on “The perverse sexual habits of the Prophet” Part I

    “”Thus Botros, after profusely apologizing to his Muslim viewers, saying how embarrassing this was for him, declared: “Look! We’re merely readers here, bringing up what we have read in Islam’s own books! If Muslims don’t like it, they should go and burn these books.”

    The first anecdote discussed by the priest revolved around a hadith that, while some ulema say is “weak,” is, nonetheless according to Botros, present in 44 Islamic books—including some highly respected collections, such as Sunan Bayhaqi and Al Halabi.

    According to this hadith, a man named Zahir, who used to declare that “the prophet loves me,” said that one day Muhammad crept unawares behind him and put him in a bear-hug. Zahir, alarmed, yelled, “Get off me!” After turning his head and discovering that it was Muhammad, he stopped struggling and proceeded to “push his back into the prophet’s chest — prayers and blessings upon him.”””

    Muslim society is repressive by nature. The raping of young boys and men is characteristic of Muslim societies, but is not considered “sex” per se. Even the Prophet Mohammed suggested (and I paraphrase) “…a woman for children, and a boy for pleasure.”

    More Islamic hypocrisy. Surprised? Those of us who know Islam and have lived in Muslim countries have many. many illuminating perpectives to share. I was born to ex-pat parents in Morocco and spent the lion’s share of my formative years in the ME. By the time I was 10, I had been “trained’ to use a switchblade with alarming precision in order to protect myself. Cut white boys are highly desireable to your garden-variety, frustrated and pickling in his own hormones Muslim male…

    I agree with the comment that nothing is too bizarre for people steeped in superstition and ignorance, aka religious people, so you can’t just discount the story, however unlikely.

    But it is unlikely. The truth of the matter is that young people in muslim countries have plenty of reasons to strike out. In Palestine the zionist colonists use ethnic cleansing, enforced poverty and apartheid against Palestinians. In Iraq the invasions by the US and it junior partner produced a veritable genocide with over a million dead. Obama plans to ramp up the killing in Afghanistan and continue cross border air attacks against Syria and Pakistan which usually result in far more deaths of civilians than Al Qaida types.

    The economic land political life the entire region is constantly tipped off balance because of the US campaign to control oil production and distribution. From Morocco to Indonesia the level of despair and rage produced is all that’s needed to send people on suicide missions.

    The beginning of a solution is to renew the struggle for the total, immediate and permanent withdrawal of US military, terrorist, mercenary and “security” forces from the 737 US military bases outside the US, as well as those of it’s junior partners in crime to their home bases.

    Ssorry, but it has nothing to deo with escaping punishment in this world. The only way to avoid going to hell after committing this or any other sin, is to go straight in without undergoing judgement. The only way to do that, is to die in a Jihad.

    Any road up it’s as nasty as it can be, but we don’t just need to understand people who do good thing, we ned to know how the bastards’ minds work as well

  25. Only religion could invent a sick way to motivate someone to die.

    ‘…young people in muslim countries have plenty of reasons to strike out. In Palestine the zionist colonists use ethnic cleansing, enforced poverty and apartheid against Palestinians.’

    The ‘evil Zionists’ are protecting upwards of 400 gay ‘Palestinian’ arab men (and where are the gay women…?) from a certain harsh demise. Strange how muslim Darfurians also made their way to Israel for protection last year. Why didn’t they head for a muslim country instead.

    ‘ethnic cleansing..’
    Do you think the Hamas would stop at slinging missiles into Israel if they could get their hands on something more deadly?

    ‘Poverty’
    … is a result of the infifadas – would you employ a rioter?

    ‘Apartheid’
    …YUP, Israeli arabs allowed to vote and with full access to free healthcare and education.

    Palestine (derived from non-arabic Philistine tribe) and Jersualem are not mentioned in the koran. On the other hand, there are plenty of positive references to Israel, as the rightful home of the Jews.

    whoever said this is a dirty liar, please provide a reference:
    ” Even the Prophet Mohammed suggested (and I paraphrase) “…a woman for children, and a boy for pleasure.”

    Hpw dare you besmirch the character of a messenger of God who had the Koran revealed to him by no less than the angel Gabriel and who figures prominently in the Book of Revelation and who upraised the low people of his time to the greatest civilization on earth (at the time) while Christian Europe was in the middle of the Dark ages. How dare you repeat those lies without checking the validity. Mohammed and Jesus are circling the inner sanctuary of the Most Great One and you will be ashamed you let yourself be lied to. have a nice day. hehe

  28. Robert, ex-pat Brit 12 Mar 2009, 8:19pm

    If this story is confirmed to be true, then perhaps the Home Office should read it before deporting genuine gay islamic refugees back to their deaths.

    In any event, islam along with the other major religious cults are inherently evil. They should all be banned from western culture and civilisation altogether. They serve absolutely no purpose let alone lend any relevance to modern 21st century living.

  29. Tears in the anus could ALSO be caused by pushing too hard during bowel movement found among people with frequent heavy constipation. I think it’s more plausible and rape. Think about it. It’s a fact that all suicide bombers are mentally constipated. It’s not such a wide leap for them to be constipated um… down there, too!!!

  30. Aaron,
    Your little story about female suicide bombers is far fetched!
    Wake up and smell the coffee.
    Oh and FYI, Ennahar Online is far from being a reliable source either. The one least reliable Algerian source quoted by one of the least reliable English sources! Give me a break!
