Syrian Scholar Supports Death Penalty for Homosexuals
“We are extremely lucky in our country,” remarks Syrian Scholar Muhammed Rateb Al-Nabulsi. “The garbage heaps of Syria are better than the gardens of Australia...There is a 150% chance that you will see your son with an earring in his right ear. This means that he is a homosexual.”
The academic then further describes the significance of earrings in determining sexuality. His statements, aired on Al-Aqsa TV on April 28th 2011, depict an extremely narrow-minded homophobe. “It’s frightening. Homosexuality involves a filthy place, and does not generate offspring.” This is his reason for why homosexuality carries the death penalty.
He criticises the British Health Secretary and an Italian Minister for homosexuality, and refuses to acknowledge the “notion” that “a homosexual is a normal person.”
The video clip containing the excerpt of his statement is broadcast online by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute.
