Egypt says gay people are not “real people”

Joseph Mayton | 21 June 2012 | 2 Comments

Egypt delegation at UN Human Rights Council says gay people are not “real people.”

CAIRO: An Egyptian delegation at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on Thursday has urged the body to focus its efforts on “real people” who need assistance in questioning the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

“Finally, concerning the highly controversial notion of sexual orientation, we can only reiterate that it is not part of the universally recognized human rights,” said the Egyptian delegation at the UN Human Rights Council.

“We call on Mr. Kiai not to undermine the credibility and legitimacy oh his important work in the eyes of real people who actually need it, especially in regions where such concepts are rejected by both its Christian and Muslim inhabitants like the Middle East,” the statement added.

Egypt’s gay community has long battled stereotypes and discrimination. Last year, the country’s LGBT community had wanted to hold a demonstration in Tahrir Square to push for their rights, but canceled it, saying the country was not ready.

“We have the right to come out in society and to protect ourselves and protect our society from oppressing homosexuals because a society that doesn’t accept the other is a sick one,” said the Facebook page of the groups on why they had planned a protest.

The Facebook page saw numerous homophobic comments, murder threats and a number of people posted Qur’anic quotes to portray how homosexuality was a “sin.”

The administrator reposted the comments so the LGBT community could see the animosity directed at them.

Posted on behalf of the Facebook page’s administrator, a man had sent in this comment:

“What’s the harm if two people from the same sex somewhere in this world are hugging each other? How did I harm you? Did I take something that is yours? Did I eat your food? What? I am a human who feels, loves, hates, gets angry, forgives, and feels happy!”

 The Rethoric that comes out of Egypt recently seems to point to sharia law being more closely followed. And the cario decleration on human rights being the accepted measure of rights for Egypts citizens. That is Human rights that don't go against the Sharia..  looks like Egypt may end up looking like dubai. can't hold hands in public, no kissing, drink quitely in designated places. 

Driving  all the christians out has been an on going task for a while, killing gays could well be added to the list of things to do once the govenment has got established.  One giant leap for the muslim brotherhood, one giant leap backwards for mankind.

Sooner or later Shamnesty International is going to have it's feet held to the flame.  Not one document on their entire website discusses the Cairo Declaration.  

 The thing that has got my goat about this, is this was said in Geneva, at the UN human rights council, and the Egyptian delegation were not frogmarched out the door. United nations my foot. It is now, and has been for a while the Islamic nations!

The Egyptian Delegation to the UN HRC are the ones that have outlawed any discussion of FGM, on the grounds that its a protected religious issue.

By the time the Leftard slime wakes up, the game will be completely over in the OIC countries for Gays, women, Christians, Jews, etc.

Any links to news reports on this suppression of discussion on fgm would be appreciated !

This gives a good account of whats being suppressed. And by whom.

There's no law against gays in Egypt.????   There is in sharia, and as Egypt is a signatory of the Cairo declaration on Human rights then it IS illegal to be gay.

The declaration says it will agree with the UNDHR where it doesn't conflict with the Sharia.

At the very least it shows that Gay marriage will not be accepted in an Islamic nation. Or even the suggestion of gay marriage between men who after an anal examination, showed no evidence of sexual activity.  In the 21st century, an anal examination. 

It was only recently that a gay man was locked up in Morocco.  

 

 Obama, Cameron and most of the western world have demanded that people of the same sex are allowed to marry.

Uganda is under a lot of pressure to repeal its anti gay laws so is Nigeria . So lets see if anyone speaks out against this case.  And how much longer is the gay community going to keep supporting Islam?

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom of Movement
The government can import new voters - except where that changes the political demographics (i.e. electoral fraud by means of immigration)
4. SP Freedom from Over-spending
People should not be charged for government systems which they reject, and which give them no benefit. For example, the government cannot pass a debt burden across generations (25 years).
An additional Freedom from Religion is be deducible by equal application of law: "Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight - except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
