Iran Executes Two Homosexual Boys

from !-Queer - 22.07.2005 17:13

Two gay Iranian teenagers -- one 18, the other believed to be 16 or 17, were executed this week for the "crime" of homosexuality, the Iranian Student News Agency (ISNA) reported on July 19. (The ISNA report is in Farsi, and was translated into English by the British gay rights group OutRage!, ISNA also provided the terrifying photos of the teens' last moments you see on this page (check below).The two youths -- identified only by their initials as M.A. and A.M., were hanged on July 19 in Edalat (Justice) Square in the city of Mashhad in north-eastern Iran, on the orders of Court No. 19. The hanging of the teens was also reported by the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

And the website Iran Focus not only confirms the story but provides more details, reporting that "Members of Iran’s parliament from the north-eastern city of Mashad, where a minor and an 18-year-old man were publicly hanged yesterday, vented their anger on Wednesday on foreign and domestic news outlets for reporting the ages of hanged prisoners...Ultra-conservative deputy Ali Asgari said that the two deserved to be hanged in public, adding, 'Whatever sentence is decreed by an Islamic penal system must be approved, unless proven otherwise.' Asgari complained of foreign and domestic reporting that the two were mere boys. 'Instead of paying tribute to the action of the judiciary, the media are mentioning the age of the hanged criminals and creating a commotion that harms the interests of the state,' the member of the Majlis Legal Affairs Committee said. 'Even if certain websites made a reference to their age, journalists should not pursue this. These individuals were corrupt. Their sentence was carried out with the approval of the judiciary and it served them right.' "

Consensual gay sex in any form is punishable by death in the Islamic Republic of Iran. According to the website Age of Consent, which monitors such laws around the world, in Iran "Homosexuality is illegal, those charged with love-making are given a choice of four deathstyles: being hanged, stoned, halved by a sword, or dropped from the highest perch. According to Article 152, if two men not related by blood are discovered naked under one cover without good reason, both will be punished at a judge's discretion. Gay teens (Article 144) are also punished at a judge's discretion. Rubbing one's penis between the thighs without penetration (tafheed) shall be punished by 100 lashes for each offender. This act, known to the English-speaking world as 'frottage,' is punishable by death if the 'offender' is a non-Muslim. If frottage is thrice repeated and penalty-lashes have failed to stop such repetitions, upon the fourth 'offense' both men will be put to death. According to Article 156, a person who repents and confesses his gay behavior prior to his identification by four witnesses, may be pardoned. Even kissing 'with lust' (Article 155) is forbidden. This bizarre law works to eliminate old Persian male-bonding customs, including common kissing and holding hands in public." And Outrage, in its release about the gay teens' execution, noted that, "according to Iranian human rights campaigners, over 4000 lesbians and gay men have been executed since the Ayatollahs seized power in 1979. Last August, a 16-year-old girl , [Atefeh Rajabi] was hanged [in the Caspian port of Neka] for 'acts incompatible with chastity,' [i.e., sex before marriage]."

In the case of the two teens hanged in Mashhad, "They admitted having gay sex (probably under torture) but claimed in their defense that most young boys had sex with each other and tdhat they were not aware that homosexuality was punishable by death," according to the ISNA report as translated by OutRage. "Prior to their execution, the gay teenagers were held in prison for 14 months and severely beaten with 228 lashes. The length of their detention suggests that they committed the so-called offenses more than a year earlier, when they were possibly around the age of 16."

fuck off
sammy

this is not acceptible and it is a crime not only against youth but against humanity...homosexuality is a normal variant and this act just denotes the uncivilized iran...if a religion asks to kill a human being just for his sexual orientation...fuck off!



its NOT about the religion. People are using/abusing religion to justify killing people that threaten or make them uncomfortable al over the world. Two kids were killed by a government for an act that affected noone but themselves. Lets leave it at that.


Crime
Bilal

Islam doesn't give the right to kill youth people, God doesn't give them the right to do it.

It's a crime ! humanity crime!
It reflects a very bad image about Islam, We can not accept it at all.
God will punish them!

Best Regards

Wake the Fuck UP
Titony

This is just sick! people have no right to take away the life of another! it's sick and totally against humanity! Even if they'r sinning which i doubt they are only god has the right to punish them not the government not the people and not even their religion! That's why i send my message for those who haven't been enlightened yet to WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!!


Against barbaric executions
Mazen

This is something unacceptable at all, this barbaric executions must be ended. I and my friends refused and condemn every action like that, that took in the rights of the death of the two boys. We must do something to stop and ban those Malla, we are against executions, U.S.A. and E.U. Governments should take action to prevent future executions not only in Iran or Saudi Arabia, but also in all the countries world wide. Again Islam doesn't tell you to execute people because they are gays, God is innocent from what your hands did. Also lashes must be stopped in any way. We are the Human Rights, who watch the Human Rights?????????????? WHo IS GOing TO LISTEN ???? WHo is going to take immediate action now to stop those barbaric and torture actions towards gays people and lesbians? I was so shocked while i am seeing those pictures of the boys, this is horrible un acceptable at all. Under any circumstance hanging and lashes must be stopped. People wake uppppppppppp, what is happening is truly wrong.
WE MUST TAKE ACTIONNNNNNNNNNN to stop those crimes.

Mazen from Lebanon



Karim

this is sick, and a barbaric act, no religion tells us to kill people, those mulla are the most hypoctitic human ever. sorry did i say human? i dont think this is the right word for them, no human being with a healthy brain can accept such act. this is disgusting, im gutted.

ACTIONs?

The comments posted here are cool, it shows how much people are pissed and outraged by this. But what about action? anything planned anywhere? anyone is sending faxes? anyone is organising anything in front of any Iranian embassy?

Action planning in Spain
!-Mad

We are holding a meeting in Barcelona with few groups working on LGBTIQ issues to discuss possible actions of protest and to put pressure to end ALL executions and also focus on minors who can be victims of this crime at a very young age (according to the law, 9 years of age for females, and 15 for boys)!

PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THE RAPE ALLEGATIONS, WE ARE USED NOT ONLY FROM THE IRANIAN STATE, BUT FROM ALL STATES TO JUSTIFY THEIR CRIMES BY ADDING ALLEGATIONS THAT UNDERMINE PUBLIC SYMPATHY AGAINST THEIR VICTIMS.

more actions are urgently needed, please keep storming!




Action in the UK
james

In London we are planning on appealing to the Iranian embassy specifically as anti-war activists who would immediately campaign against any attack on Iran should one be launched. I am not particularly optimistic, but pointing out that we are staunch opponents of western imperialism, and that these executions, and any others like them, will undermine our attempts to build a movement against imperialism, may help our argument.
At least I hope it will - these executions have made me more angry than I have been in a long time

Horrors Happen Everyday
Kenpark

Islam (which has never been updated or reformed) proposes a set of tortures for various "deviation". I belong to a muslim country where gay people are not killed, but this doesn"t prevent them from homphobic agressions ranging from insults and mockerie to physical agressions and moral harassement. Iarn is one extreme case of the idleness of leaders and people, who find in the persecution of gay people and women,a hobbie, or rtaher an outlet for their frustrations. Meanwhile, leaders deviate the attentions of masss from what is of direct concern to them and the good health of their countries. This ideologies of intolrence are enhanced by the school.
The Only solution for gay people is internationa pressure to reforme The Muslim countries Faith and schools



From Brazil

This is unnaceptable, homossexuality is not a crime, and if considered one, should not be punished with death. Nothing we do will bring these boys life's back, but the least we can do:
* Send a note to the Iranian embassy of your country or nearby (I sent already to the U.S.A. and Brazilian Iranian embassy)

* Do not buy products from Iran or make any kind of business with Iranians. If they see their economy going down the hill, they may change their laws.



the rape allegations were trumped-up charges aimed to undermine public sympathy for the teenagers.

tragedy piled on top of tragedy
jay

when i first read about this tragic event in a local GLBTI newspaper, it seemed too barbaric to be true... there aren't words to describe the horror of this.

as if growing up, being a teenager doesn't have enough burdens, this particular culture resorts to cold blooded murder to punish something that is natural and a part of many peoples' development as they grow up and experiment/come to terms with their sexuality.

i pray for the two lads that died... and for the people that murdered them.

Kurt

I'm not doing this to flame.
It's great that everyone is so up-in-arms about this. Killing people who commit "crimes" like this one is wrong. Especially when you kill them in the name of a religion. It makes that religion and the country look bad, leading only to more violence. But, people please spell check. By typing out your anger, you represent not only your opinion and the opinons of others, you represent your intelligence level.

I wouldn't even call it a homosexual act
Alex Gian

I am not sure you could even call such acts homosexual for sure!

It's not exactly as if these boys had an option of heterosexual sex, which they turned down, now, is it??

It is simply boys discovering that they have ANY sexual feelings... together. Old as the hills.

God only knows what the punishment for going with a GIRL is in Iran!

These boys were murdered for the crime of being alive.

Iran has disgraced itself, probably irredeemably. I know that this doesn't justify extreme action against Iran, a la Iraq, but if it DOES happen, it won't surprise me if people say - "they're barbarians, they deserve it"

disgusting
Christophe

I'm french.

I'm revolted when I see those pictures and when I read the articles about taht terrible crime.

We knew that Iran is a dictature. We knew that women are considerd as second zone citizens. We knew that being homosexual in such a country was not easy. But I could'nt imagine that tey could be able tou kill children only because they are gay !

Now the boys are dead. I only hope that Allah made they welcome in its Kingdom.

I'm so disgusted that I cannot find the words (moreover in english) to express my emotion;

I regrett that french authorities have not condamned that crime yet !!
I invite french to send an email to Iranian Embassy in France :  info@emb-iran.fr

Thank you, in memory of those two courageous boys !!

Message emailed to Iran UK Embassy
G Whitelaw

I have emailed the following comment to the UK Iran Embassy. I do not expect a reply.............


"You seem to be a very backward country executing two teenagers for having gay sex.

You should be ashamed!

I only hope God will look after them now as their fellow countrymen seem to have abandoned them in the name of religion.

Any religious tract can say what you want it to say and to execute two men on the basis of a few words is the work of a society that represses its citizens.

This is NOT a way to run what you claim is a civilised country.

You should be really ashamed of this as it confirms what most reasonable people in the rest of the world think of the barbaric abuses of civil rights in the middle east.

It makes ME ashamed that humans could do this to each other."


To those sending messages!
!-Mad

Thanks to all of those sending messages and organising stuff in protest of this horrible crime!

In solidarity I ask you to refrain from any statements that condemn a whole country, a whole population and a whole relegion. This crime was executed by the Iranian government, they are the sole criminals in this, they are not representatives of the Iranian people (note that riot police was there during the crime to supress any protests around the city), and they surely do not represent billions of muslims around the world!

It is not in the spirit of your solidarity to issue statements full of hate, racism or islamophobia!


murder&scandle
ali

what in the world is going on here?this is not killing the 2 boys only it really greats the wold ignorance and treatment that anyone deserves for such think. is that justic so ....wake up comeon this is disgrace we should make an action because this issue will continuou and kill other people ,i refuse it totally those gays are unlucky to be in fuckin lowand fuckin country

eMail: niminy_pinimy@yahoo.com


YOU´RE WRONG
You´re wrong

It seems all was a manipulation. The death penalty is barbaric, bur this WASN'T A QUEER CASE. The boys were hung for a different reason: raping a younger boy, not for their homosexuality. Check the pages og Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International or IGLHRC to know more about the truth. Outrage, well known for their struggle for GLBTQ rights, but also for their phobia to Islam, still keeps the false version (it´s easier to say that instead of saying "Sorry, we made a mistake"). Tons of demos, letter campaigns and several protests have been made during the last month based on an information that WAS A LIE. Curious... the crises about the Iranian nuclear programme was about to start.... WHAT A COINCIDENCE!!

I remember this had happened before, I remember the cases against the governments of Cuba and Nicaragua: Western media say a false piece of news about homophobia there and here all of us, fags and dykes, go to act against an "evil country" without checking the data. Meanwhile some governments friend of the bushes, like Saudi Arabia, have killed only in 2005 around nine gay men (unheaded) and none of us have made a single noise... yeah, nobody interested in our mobilization sent us any mail informing us... While we received info about Cuba in the 90s, the escuadrones de la muerte trained by the Pentagon were killing fags and trangenders in the streets of 12 Latin American countries, but we were very busy demostraiting against Cuba. Let´s tell the Moshad and the CIA they should inform us about everything, not only about Iranian minor rapers, don´t you think?

I feel angry. Let me say just once we are a bunch of silly people. Including myself.


NOT RAPE
!-Queer very silly!

Dear Mr. You´re wrong

Seems like you did quite some nice reading about the topic, but seems you only read what you want to read, and read what they want you to read.

With all due respect to HRW, Amnesty and all other international BIG names, it is not the first time that they push some points for political reasons, or abide with what governments say! If you read carefully you will see that even the government did not say it was RAPE! It is statutory rape, meaning having sex with someone who is under 18 and this is totally different than raping someone and using force (I am not giving any position on that matter)! If you read the interview with their lawyer and the interview with the gay activist from Iran on gayrussia you would have an idea of what I am talking about!

As for the rest of you guys and gals and what have you! Keep the noise going! I do not know if we are silly or not, but in any case we are brilliant and amazing, the noise is becoming bigger, keep it going!

P.s. In solidarity I ask you to refrain from any statements that condemn a whole country, a whole population and a whole relegion. This crime was executed by the Iranian government, they are the sole criminals in this, they are not representatives of the Iranian people (note that riot police was there during the crime to supress any protests around the city), and they surely do not represent billions of muslims around the world! It is not in the spirit of your solidarity to issue statements full of hate, racism or islamophobia! (from a comment above)


No change
You´re wrong

Dear Mr. Queer very silly:

I had read the interview and the statements from the lawyer when I wrote my previous post and my conclusions were the opposite as you: from both texts it´s clear the death of penalty is not applied for homosexual acts in Iran (did you read properly?). I read more sources (what I wanted to read and whast I didn´t, just to reply to your nice and respectful comment). In a USA leftist webpage they point at the Iranian pro-USA oposition (conphortably based in Paris) as the real authors of the alert, as the "group of Iranian students" who sent the first alert mail don´t really exist. I also read the statements by Outrage saying "we don´t belief the reports, our sources are the Iranian oposition groups". I read the statement of the directopr of the IGLHRC (the most trustful group dealing with Human Rights for the LGBT) saying "this is not a gay case". I also read the official Human Rights reports with the age of the young men who were hung (not minors at all). And I also read the document of two representatives of the homophobiacal American Republican Party asking for a clarification and a protest (so involved in gay struggle when the attacks are from Iran, these fascist guys).

So my question is... what have YOU read?

This is a bluff. And a lot of us are involved feeling we´re struggling for justice. Do you think is it a coincidence THIS happen when Europe and the USA are trying to build an anti-Iranian atmosphere in the negotiations of the Iranian nuclear programme? Why so many cases of people hung in Iran haven´t deserved an alert-mail: 5 cases of minors in 2004 and 1 in the orevious months of 2005? Why the two gay men beheaded in May in Saudi Arabia -a friendly pro-USA ally) didn´t deserve a campaign?

Come on... It´s hard to assume we´ve been cheated, I know. But that´s what we´ve been.


Shame on the murderers
Tanti

What a shame to deprive two young people of their life and future. Homosexuality has always been there, it existed since manhood, so, is there anything wrong with it?


Chris Michael

I'm South African, and we don't see or hear much about Islamic nations, but when I saw these murders it was hard to believe people could possibly be so barbaric. I pray the young guys had a quick and painless death, but their murder can never be recompensed. The leaders of Iran are not only distorting Islam but massacring their own nations' people. I can't describe my disgust, the ayahtollah ,or what ever 'it' is, is going straight downwards when passes on.


COME ON!
Queery Silly

It is not rape, it is not the Islamic nations, it is a barbaric state facing everyone including muslims! It is a homphobic thing that is spread from the US to Iran! They are all one!


A rape?
Qt

Queer Silly: it's sad you insist in taking as trustful an information which has revealed being false as it is accepted so by any serious Human Rights and/or GLBT activist.


NOT RAPE!
Very silly Queer

ok!

So I will go back to you! First please do not use points like "serious Human Rights and/or GLBT activist", these are exactly the people I do not trust! It is not the first time people like Amnesty, ILGA or IGLHRW follow what the state says! Look into their history and read the unpublished, read how many people have made noise about these groups holding on to vital information they had to maintain their political interestes. You will be shocked!

Second, if you READ again, even the Iranian government says it is STATUTORY rape, which means SEX with a MINOR, meaning that the minor said yes, but the state does not recognise this yes cause they believe a minor cannot approve or give consent! So it is NOT rape! Rape being forcing someone to have sex by denying them free and safe consent! And for the record, in some countries even people under 18 (sometimes 21) are included under this "law"! So mainly in these countries anyone having sex with anyone under 18 or 21, they are raping them!

Third, people like you, and those "serious" activists are mainly what makes me sad, if these "serious" activists where there during Stonewall riots they would have said "nooo it is bad, we should make a petition, not clash with the police... We understand the suffering of the state and the police and we reject these acts of violence"! I wonder in the past years of all this governmental lobbying, where did we get to, what rights did we attain besides marriage and joining the military! both of which adding to our exploitation, and giving us "equality" as to join the oppressors! good job! While Homos still die all over the place and hate crimes are from New York to Karatchi! Good job! I salut your "seriousness" and I accept my silliness!


People like me?
Qt

Very Silly:

It’s odd you say “people like you” because you don’t know me. Not only I feel very close to the spirit of Stonewall, but I’m still participating in little Stonewalls here and there (probably more often than you). But I like to struggle only when there’s a reason to do it. And this one is not one of those.

Once made clear that this is not a debate among “radical so-cool queer activists saying this is not rape” and “boring serious moderate gay people saying it’s a rape”, let me tell you something:

1. I don’t take part in any of those “serious institutions” such as HRW, AI and IGLHRC. And I suppose there must be a lot of critics we can tell about them. But your disrepute to them is hilarious. Who do you think has been informing continuously about death penalty against GLBT people -and straight people- in the USA, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran itself during years, without any kind of response from LGTB groups or any international solidarity? Did you move a finger against those cases for the last 10 years? They did.

2. Your “radicalism” forgets to take in account the reports saying that the rape against the 13 y.o. boy was under threaten with a knife and stealing him a bike. This is not statutory rape: again probably the Iranian opposition in Paris gave you falsa data and you bought them.

3. Activists like American Weill-Greenberg (google her name to check her “radicalism” and her “sufficient stonewall level”) pointed to the NCR as authors of the bluff. This was indirectly confirmed by Outrage, when they declared they were using the reports by the "democratic" (?) Iranian opposition as a source for their protests. NCR is a pro-Western Iranian opposition group living in Paris, demanding the invasion of Iran, the recognition of Israel by a new pro-Western government they will put by force in Tehran, and the cession of Iranian companies to western multinationals. Check their own website:  http://www.ncr-iran.org/

4. Therre are interesting alternative points of views: Faisal Alam wrote an article you can find in this very Indymedia Beirut. I hope he is enough "stonewall" for you to recognise him his right to speak. He tells very clearly how this protest is promoted and encouraged by homophobical and islamophobical groups which are allies of Bush’s theory of the “Axe of Evil”. He points at the hasty and less-than-informed campaign by Outrage and other groups. He makes interesting proposals to avoid the same mistakes in the future.

I’m sorry if I insist too much. I have no other interest but alerting that our own enemies are manipulating us as useful fools.


Funny enough!
Very silly

LOL; will not engage in this discussion on who riot more! If you do it more then good job! Thumbs up! You are my hero! :)

I read Faisal Alam´s and I believe it is great, and I support your point about the whole thing with "our enemies" using us! And this is something we noted and asked for people to watch out for! Especially in the face of islamophobic people like OutRage!

As for the points on AI and the rest of the celebs, well, dear mr. First, yes they did announce all these stuff, but I wonder if they did not then what is the reason of their existance. I am not concerned by what they announce, I am more concerned about what they hold back, and what they maniplute!

Second, this whole knife thing, and stealing the bike! Come on! Couple of years in Lebanon they arrested two Lesbian women based on a phone call of the mother of one of them. The state took them to court, based on uproar from people concerned (radical and not, I am the last one to call myself radical by the way, I am more mainstream than you can imagine :) ), the government send them to jail for stealing the mother´s jewels! They did not mention anything about homosexuality, it was a mere case of theft! We all knew back then the two women were going down for homosexuality, but the government curtailed any efforts by changing it to theft! What happened! Ask the two girls!

I am not fighting you personally, so get off your horse, please with all peace! I have a problem with people, like you, (no judging you but rather noting people who share the opinion you express here), believing what is thrown at us. I do not believe a state, I do not believe AI nor god herself, I believe my life, the homphobia I suffered ands till suffer! Homophobia is rooted in this case, and also discrimination against under privileged Arab minority of Iran. Please, do not take it personally! We are still going on with the noise, and you are more than welcomed to join!

No war, no homphobia, no international intervention! As for your Stonewall record, good job! You made history! I admire you! :)

Me here in Brazil, so distant of Iran, I feel sad and I feel wounded, bleeding, I feel really hurt. I leave my indignation here before humanity's such poor action.

What a Shame
Trevor Brooks

It saddens me to no end to see something like this. In an age when most countries are pursuing policies to give gays and lesbians more rights, you still see some countries executing people for being gay.

I was also astounded to see the part where a certain Iranian politician was angered that people were reporting facts that will make Iran look bad. I hate to clue the guy in, but executing minors for any offence makes a country look bad. Especially when the oh so serious "crime" is having sex with another man. I was also dumbfounded to see that earlier a girl had been executed for having pre-marital sex. Lunacy. All I can say is the sooner the reformists take complete control of Iran, the better. There are too many dangerous backwards-thinking people exercising too much power. It's an absolute shame seeing a country and a people with so much potential being held back by those afraid of modernization and progressive thought.

السلام عليكم
I am not gay. not at all. and i dont know what it feels like to be gay. and the court or who ever decides what the consequences are, dont have any idea either. i believe that u dont have a choice to be gay. like i cant choose a female or a male. i mean i dnt thnk abt it but i mean the male gender just turn me on. n that how i believe gay ppl thnk. they dnt thnk : "o ill have sex wth a girl today n later on a guy". no. u dnt thnk, but u feel that way. it might be worng, but thats not up to the ppl to decide but god. i am a muslim, i do believe in god. but i am NOT going to sit here and watch u put children. litterally children to death.i thnk ths is ludacris. u cant help urself, its the same as, for example: i love cocktails, theres no spacific reason to why i do but i just do. now,, are u goin to murder me for liking something i have no control over?? i am shocked, trully shocked that this is what goes on. there are gay ppl all over the fucking world. life without them would be very different. and what good will ths do? putting ppl to death? wat good? since i am a muslim i can say ths, cuz ths is wat were supposed to believe in,, but u arent doing a very good job so far so let me remind u: the Rasool (salla allah 3alaih wa salam) once said (i dnt know the exact words, but ths is the main point) that if some one is doing wrong, help them out n lead them in the right direction. dnt fuckn kill them, maybe one of them would have turned out to be the most religouse, ppl loving, ppl giving person in the next 10 years, but no. u had to kill him. so instead of helping him to learn to walk again, u cripple him. wow that is so what islam tought us. plz email me wth ur respond.

thank u,

God gave us a brain
Nasser Ameen Ali

God gave us a brain to think..to decide and compare between right or wrong..He gave us personalites to vary us from each other and to give us a certain special feature and diffrences.Although im not a homosexual this topic of freedom always occur in the arab and neighbouring countries aswell.
Sexuality is a subject affecting a persons inner desires and cannot be stopped at any cost. Islam forbids homosexuality because god created man and woman to produce and carry on the gift of life..
the world is dying from hunger and lack of medicine due to over population a few homosexuals wont affect the world and cause it to die.
Freedom of choice must be allowed in these countires...and thus leads the topic to change the type of goverment from monarchy to democracy which will truly aid the morale and the jugdment of people in these 3rd world countries who soley beleif their thoughts are right..
This is wrong! people must be free to choose what they want!

It is widely known that adolescent males sometimes engage in sexual acts with one another, particularly in societies where there is rigid segregation of the sexes. In most civilized societies, if such a thing is to be punished at all, then it is by nothing more than a mild whipping and an admonition from the court.

To kill two boys for what amounts to nothing more than boyish foolishness is barbarism, plain and simple.
