Opinion / Editorial - Gay Media's Failure to Accurately Report Stories
Adds to Growing Islamaphobia and Hatred Towards Islamic World

By Faisal Alam, Founder of Al-Fatiha (LGBTIQ Muslims)

In the wake of the recent London bombings, the Western world has been
propelled into another vicious cycle of revenge against Muslims and the
Islamic world. While mainstream media around the world have more
accurately represented the outpouring of condemnation by Muslim
organizations and institutions against the attacks in London, the gay
and lesbian media in the U.S. has unfortunately succumbed once again to
the false belief that Islam condones acts of violence including suicide
bombings, executions of civilians and even the killing of homosexuals.

On July 19, a number of exiled Iranian organizations reported that two
teenagers, one aged 18 and the other a minor (who's age is reported to
be either 16 or 17) were hanged in Iran, a country that President Bush
infamously labeled as part of the "axis of evil." The news of this
horrific execution was blasted across gay and lesbian media websites
with pictures that depict the final moments of the teenagers as they
were escorted to face their inevitable death. On June 20, the largest
gay and lesbian political organization in the United States, the Human
Rights Campaign issued a press release condeming the execution and
calling on Secretary of State Condalezza Rice to condemn the brutal
killings in Iran and similar attacks on sexual and gender minorities in
other countries.

Tom Pain,

President Bush may be heading to Iraq. He cut short his news conference in Colombia. As of 7:16 p.m. Central Time, he surprisingly has not been reported as landing in Texas. Bush no doubt would consider it a real coup to repeat the surprise visit he made last Thanksgiving to the troops in Iraq. Probably he is more eager this year, after his victory and as he kicks off four more years. Also, it has been a bad year for morale in Iraq. This trip is a must. His schedule and the secret plans for last year provide clues to this year, as explained below.
