Sir Elton John Defies Islamic Protest to Play Morocco
Shariah militants are working overtime to prevent Elton John, who is openly gay, from performing in Morocco. Mustapha Ramid of the Islamist PJD party said, "Morocco is an Islamic state where stages should not used to allow a person with such a degree of debauchery to perform, because we have to shield the young from such influences."

Sir Elton John is to headline Morocco's largest music festival, despite calls from Islamist political parties that the government should deny him entry.
Opposition politicians argue the ivory-tinkling performer would harm the image of the North African kingdom should he be allowed to perform at the Mawazine World Rhythms Festival in the country's capital, Rabat.
Jan 2010: Muslim Chaplain and Adjunct Professor of Islam at the Divinity School of Vanderbilt University and advisor to the Muslim Student Association says: "Yes, under Islamic law, homosexuality is punishable by death,” and "I go with what Islam teaches." Will Vanderbilt stop taking dollars from the Middle East?
Vanderbilt University is distancing itself from a Muslim chaplain after he told a gathering of students homosexuality is punishable by death under Islam.
"I don't have a choice as a Muslim to accept or reject teachings. I go with what Islam teaches," said Awadh A. Binhazim, who is listed on the Vanderbilt website as "Adjunct Professor of Islam at the Divinity School" and an adviser to the Muslim Student Association. His comments came earlier this week at a diversity event for students.
He was asked directly, "Under Islamic law is it punishable by death if you are a homosexual?"
Edy “Echa” Saputra is the head of Violey Grey, an organization fighting for the rights of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community. The Indonesian province of Aceh “is known for implementing Islamic sharia law, which allows no place for the GLBT community.” Says Saptura, “You can see it when the sharia police raid beauty salons. They get physically and verbally abusive.” Aceh’s bylaws state that anyone engaging in acts of homosexuality be lashed 100 times, fined up to 1 kilogram of gold (Rp 39,180,000 or US$36,050 at current market price), or imprisoned for up to 100 months.
There is a special government unit in London that deals with gays being forced into heterosexual marriages. Muslims are being abused and fear being killed by their own family members. Each year over 1600 cases of forced marriage are reported and over ¾ of these cases deal with those of South Asian origin. Ali, a 21-year-old London man who will not reveal his full name in order to keep his identity a secret, says, “You see people being killed for being gay and stuff. I think I'd be vulnerable if people knew about me… I've heard a lot of remarks in the past about people saying that gay people should die for religious reasons."
A UK charity is dealing with an increasing number of young gay Muslims becoming homeless after fleeing forced marriages and so-called honour violence.
During a weekly drop-in group held by the Albert Kennedy Trust in London, Suni, a 20-year-old London student, helps himself to a warm mince pie and a steaming cup of coffee.
In 2008, during a holiday to Pakistan to visit relatives, his parents suspected the truth about his sexuality. They believed marriage would "cure" him of what they considered to be a psychological disorder.
Shi’ite death squads are molesting, torturing and killing homosexuals all over Iraq. They are filming these acts and distributing the videos via mobile phones. The latest form of heinous torture involves sealing a man’s anus with super glue than force-feeding him laxatives. His body cannot withstand this, and because he cannot evacuate his bowels, he dies.
Iraqi Moslems have peculiarly inventive minds. They possess fertile imaginations. By combining these unique talents, they have devised a method for cleansing Iraq of homosexuals.
Not by exiling them. Not by corralling them in concentration camps. Nor by shooting them. Their solution is cheaper and effective. It provides job satisfaction and enjoyment to the enthusiastic soldiers of Allah.
They have hit the Moslem jackpot with this innovation!
The brave enforcers of law and order, Iraqi style, hunt their prey in the streets. And in cafes, barbers shops, and houses. They search for unmarried 30 to 35 year old men and for effeminate men. Pharmacists advise police about male customers who regularly buy female hormones and cosmetic creams. They entrap gay men via internet chatrooms by dating them - then...pounce!
