Islamic State has killed at least 30 people for sodomy, UN told

Islamic State has claimed responsibility for killing at least 30 people for sodomy, the head of an international gay rights organisation has told the first UN security council meeting in New York to focus on violence and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

“It’s about time, 70 years after the creation of the UN, that the fate of LGBT persons who fear for their lives around the world is taking centre stage,” said the US ambassador, Samantha Power, who organised the meeting with Chile’s UN envoy. “This represents a small but historic step.”


Has Samantha Power ever mentioned the plight of Christians under Islam?

    Samantha isn’t interested in the plight of gays under the Islamic State, any more than she is interested in the plight of Christians. Such people are only interested in grandstanding for domestic pressure groups, to round up votes for progressive government – taxpayer cash to be shovelled at them later. The first thing anyone needs to understand about progressives is that they have no true interest in human life, liberty, or dignity, only in acquiring power over others, to shape the world as they wish. And then maybe reshape it tomorrow. That’s the beauty of having the kind of power they want. And of having a society that will vote for them.

    • They are no different than ISIS then, it explains the left’s love affair with Islam.

    • Very accurately put.

  • Gary

    It won’t be a crisis to Obama until ISIS denies gays Pizza after their wedding…THEN he’ll be outraged.

  • What, aside from nothing, is being done about this?

    Withdraw from the UN today.

    The UN is imposing an arms embargo on South Sudan for buying Chinese weapons but will never impose any penalty on China itself, just as they don’t care about ISIS:

    That’s the UN for you.
