Al-Qaeda accused of using male rape to ‘create’ suicide bombers
Islamic terrorists are raping young men in order to drive them into suicide bombings.
The Sun quotes Algerian militant Abu Baçir El Assimi:
“The sexual act on young recruits aged between 16 to 19 was a means to urge them to commit suicide operations.”
The paper claims that “intense social stigma and fear of more gay sex attacks leaves Muslims prepared to die.”
Rape and homosexual acts are punishable by death under Sharia law.
