ISIS claimed responsibility yesterday for the deadly terror attack at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub, which is affiliated with the LGBTQ community. In Iraq and Syria, the terrorist organization regularly executes homosexuals just because of their sexual orientation. “In my society, being gay means death,” testified an Iraqi homosexual who fled his country.

It does not seem random that the deadliest mass shooting in US history, for which ISIS claimed responsibility, occurred at a nightclub affiliated with the LGBTQ community. In addition to the murderous terrorist organization’s war with the West, ISIS despises homosexuals and believes that they need to be killed.

In the past, homosexuals who have been caught by ISIS have been tortured, shot dead, thrown alive off of a tall building, decapitated or stoned to death- just because of their sexual orientation. A year and a half ago, the world was disgusted when videos surfaced of homosexuals being executed in Iraq. In a video from Mosul, two homosexual men were thrown off of a tall building.

ISIS forced other homosexuals to gather around the building and watch as the men were thrown off of it. This manner of execution has continued throughout the last year in Iraq. Recently, it was reported that this type of execution for homosexuals is also conducted in the ISIS controlled areas in Syria.

Recently, at a UN Security Council briefing on LGBTQ issues around the world, a gay Iraqi who fled from his country said: “In my society, being gay means death. When ISIS murders gays, most people are happy because they think we are evil.”

The Iraqi explained how ISIS members use the Facebook accounts and cell phones of people who are suspected of being homosexuals in order to identify and locate more suspects. “It’s like dominoes. If one goes, the others will be taken down too,” he claimed.

At the same briefing, Subhi Nahas, a Syrian man who fled from his country, explained how ISIS treats homosexuals in Syria. Nahas said that homosexuals are thrown off of tall buildings and if they survived, they are stoned by bystanders.
