Muslim Gambian President Warns: No Mercy for Homosexuals

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Unlike Israel, Gambia is a Muslim country. Which means there’s no pinkwashing to see here. Just Islam. Tolerant Islam. The Religion of Peace.

“The leader of a small West African nation that receives American humanitarian aid has warned that any gay or lesbians found in his country will “regret” being born.

The president’s latest rant came during a speech on March 28 at the opening of the country’s parliament, according to Gambia’s Freedom Newspaper Online. In an interesting juxtaposition of themes, Jammeh called for continued peace in his country, promised to root out criminal activity and warned homosexuals to stay out of the region or suffer severe consequences.

“Homosexuality is anti-humanity. I have never seen homosexual chicken, or turkey,” Jammeh said, according to the Freedom Newspaper. “If you are convicted of homosexuality in this country, there will be no mercy for offenders.”

Homosexuals are not welcome in the Gambia. If we catch you, you will regret why you are born. I have buffalos from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other. We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this.

And in 2008, Jammeh said he would “cut off the head” of any gay person caught in the country, a threat he later retracted, according to Agence France-Presse.

Beheading people is a classic Muslim response to all sorts of problems. Despite all this, Gambia gets a fraction of the attention from gay rights activists that Uganda does. Because Uganda is a majority Christian country while Gambia is a majority Muslim country.

And you could ask Jammeh to step down, but that would be Islamophobic because he was appointed by Allah himself.

Allah entrusted this position to Yahya Jammeh, and anybody who is averse to the decree of Allah can bite their nose,” snarled a spokesman for the president.

The real pinkwashing is the left’s pinkwashing of Islam and Islamic countries on gay rights.

And don’t look for Obama to stop shoving money at Jammeh. Or to start pressuring it the way that he pressures Israel. Muslim countries get a free pass on liberal values. Anything else would be Islamophobia.

While George W. Bush suspended aid to Gambia for its lack of human rights, there has been no such obstacle under Obama.

    Darn, I guess Gambia is off the short list of places that I was going to hold the Annual Satanic Homosexual Pride Event.

  • @quark1912

    Indeed I get the sense that there will not be a Gay Pride Parade in Banjul anytime soon.

    I have extensively studied the lifecycle of homosexual muslims in Gambia here are my findings:

    1. As with the majority of Muslims, they are conceived from the mating of a 45 yr old man and a tween girl.
    2. Born in a dirt floor hut, just the same as any their non-gay kin folk, they sound and look like any other muslim person.
    3. At the age of 13, with very little prospects in life and not having enough money to afford a goat, these boys band together in groups of just males.
    4. Brucealah, the group's leader and spiritual advisor, devises a plan – "until such a time as we can collectively gather enough money to buy a goat for sharing we shall keep each other company in friendship".
    5. High on Grewia Juice, Brucealah, Allah's right hand man and voice, takes little Osama to see the latest batch of IED's he created.
    6. Waking up in the morning with his pants around his ankles and sore, little Osama, finds the religious police standing over him.
    7. Little Osama head is removed from his body.
    8. Liberals the world over rejoice – almost as loud as they do when an abortion happens, almost.

      In other words, you're a bigot.

        "In other words, you're a bigot."

        Leftist definitions:

        Bigot: Anyone who draws distinctions between various cultures without making the clearly inferior cultures in to victims of "Western imperialism."

    Look for Gambia at some UN "(anti)Human Rights" sponsored committee really soon.

    On that first photo: tell me that's not a dildo he's holding… that would be… something.

      "On that first photo: tell me that's not a dildo he's holding… that would be… something."

      Yes, but it's his female dildo. You think he'd do that with a male? Come on. Don't insult Islam so readily.

    Beheading is one part of Sharia Law sanctioned barbarism, and so is this –

    One has to wonder what the Gambian barbarian thinks about the POTUS's proclivities –

      "It's their culture,It's their culture,It's their culture,It's their culture…"

      Ya. And don't forget we can't judge anyone else's culture. Just Christians and Jews must live up to our Utopian ideals. They're the ones who started this whole global conflict thing.

  • Toni_Pereira

    Indeed! and that makes of us masters of the world and the rest our burden. A strange paradox that most liberal non-judgementalists don't notice.

    You can't make this up, folks: to show how depraved Muslims are, Danny Greenfield writes a piece showing how Gambians commit murder against gay people. And the Neanderthals that read Danny's propaganda jump on the bandwagon with anti-gay slurs, and some how show this has to do with liberalism.

      Murder and politically incorrect speech are roughly equal in moral terms to leftists.
