Dirtying The Reputation Of Islam

Another depressing report in today’s Observer on how Islamists are targeting, attacking, and in some cases, killing Iraqi gays. They seek out their victims via gay chatrooms on the Internet. In the words of one of the attackers, Abu Hamizi:
"It is the easiest way to find those people who are destroying Islam and who want to dirty the reputation we took centuries to build up."
As the report says, when he finds them, Hamizi arranges for them to be attacked and sometimes killed. It seems to me that Hamizi is doing a sterling job of dirtying Islam’s reputation all by himself. He presumably thinks Muhammad would be proud. Any decent human being would be appalled.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
