the new "qowmu lut"?

salam, friends,

one thing queer muslims always encounter is that we are accused of practicing the lewd acts of the people of lut. but we all know the people of lut were more interested in power and abuse, rather than love and connecting with other human beings. here is a story about how al-qaeda is using male rape in order to gain power over young men. by raping them, they shame them... making them more susceptible to their bidding:


Al Qaeda Accused of Using Male Rape to Recruit Suicide Bombers

According to Algerian militant Abu Bacir El Assimi, Islamic terrorists rape young men as a means of recruitment for suicide bombings. Rape creates a social stigma and fear, according to reports, that leave Muslims prepared to die.

The Sun quotes Algerian militant Abu Ba├žir El Assimi as saying, "The sexual act on young recruits aged between 16 to 19 was a means to urge them to commit suicide operations."
