  1. So, sharia law in the constitution, and no hope of anti-gay laws being repealed.

    Wasn’t much of a revolution was it? Even the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 brought equality for gay people – at least for a few years, Russia was leading the world. Now when the western world is chattering about gay marriage, the “revolution” in the arab world is providing to be reactionary rather than revolutionary.

    Still, that won’t stop our infantile deluded liberals from pretending that black is white, and slavery = freedom. Until they start getting out the cranes and nooses in Libya…

      Your comments show little solidarity or understanding of what is written and with gay and lesbians in particular in Libya. Shari’a law has not been instituted, there is A POSSIBILITY that a weak version of it may serve as an inspiration. Did you actually read the article? Inspiration is not constitution, many laws in the West are inspired by Judea-Christian ideals as well as “primitive” Roman laws that have Stoic religious values, so what? The main point is things are improving and we should support LGBT people in Libya as elsewhere.

      What is it with you Islamophobes? Are you (mis)using PinkNews comments as a channel of bigotry and pro EDL views? Grow up and show some compassion and solidarity – as for “infantile” I suggest you have a look in the mirror.

  2. sadly islam and sharia law is murdering gays daily. so i support gay rights in islam , or better gays rights without religions

  3. Thanks Khaleed for this first-hand information.

    Also, it’s great to know that you do have access to the Internet.

    Please take care.

    This happens time and again.
    Tyrants may be dangerous and unwanted by the majority, but what happens when they are removed and the glue that held the population in check is dissolved?

    It happened in Bosnia, Romania, Iraq and many other countries where tyrannical leaders were deposed, and the country just collapsed into anarchy.

    Sometimes it is better the devil you know…
