Both Peter Kimani and Jennifer Wairimu have been sentenced to 18 months in prison for “doing it” (drunk) in the dark corner of a Mosque. I agree that the actions of the two were grossly stupid and insensitive, but 18 months? Perhaps that is a rather lenient verdict in the eyes of many in the Islamic world, where homosexuality (or just the claim of it) can earn you this:
These Iranian boys were executed on the charges that they were gay, or had engaged in such activity. Where are the human rights activists’ protests of rage over such injustices? I am not just talking about a few op-eds or comments on a website, I’m talking about planned marches and protests exclusively over such barbaric practices such as this (viewer discretion is advised, contains graphic footage of stonings).
So far, I haven’t heard of any mention of an international boycott or sanctions by the various human rights NGO’s, against the Islamic world that regularly carries out executions for “crimes” that the liberal West rightly deems as private consensual matters. Where is the outrage? It’s usually directed at the US and Israel. KGS
