This is a deeply disturbing message but not the only one of its kind by a long shot. Islam preaches death to homosexuals in many places around the world, including here in America apparently! The video below was provided by The United West.
Also, in today’s Wall Street Journal Ayaan Hirsi Ali (story reblogged at Counter Jihad Report) recalls other Islamic killings in the west of gay people on grounds of Sharia enforcement, as well as polling data in Muslim countries showing how prevalent these violent attitudes towards homosexuals are. Kyle Shideler of Center for Security Policy wonders whether CAIR will condemn the anti-gay imams it regularly associates with and promotes. Raymond Ibrahim on his blog has posted an ISIS video of people being hurled off rooftops to shouts of “Allahu Akbar” – a traditional Islamic ceremony for killing gay people.
And there is so much more evidence out there (that can be found within five minutes) of systemic, institutional hatred and murder of homosexuals within Islam. So much so that it boggles the mind how the post-Orlando media narrative could be ignoring this obvious connection between Omar Mateen and his one hundred gay victims.

The United West investigative team uncovered a story so disturbing Field Sutton of Channel 9 news in Orlando, FL broke the story on their newscast.
The Husseini Islamic Center, 5211 Hester Ave, Sanford, FL 32773, invited Sheikh Farrokh Sekaleshfar to speak at their Mosque. Dr. Sekaleshfar says the killing of homosexuals is the compassionate thing to do.
In a 2013 speech Sheikh Sekaleshfar said this regarding gays, “Death is the sentence. We know there’s nothing to be embarrassed about this, death is the sentence…We have to have that compassion for people, with homosexuals, it’s the same, out of compassion, let’s get rid of them now.”
When Sheikh Sekaleshfar calls for the death of all homosexuals based on the tenets of Islam it can not be ignored, he is an expert on Shariah Islamiyya or Islamic Law.
Islamic Law also mandates a death sentence for blasphemers and apostates, does Sheikh Sekaleshfar and the Husseini Islamic Center Mosque advocate those legal rulings as well?
What’s equally disturbing is the response to this call for killing gays from Rev. Bryan Fulwider of the Interfaith Council of Central Florida. Rev. Fulwider said, “These issues around homosexuality and the decrying of it or denouncing of it by religion takes away, often, from our really important task of helping our community to be a better community…and wishes congregations would focus more on helping the homeless, poor , and abused instead of persecuting a group that can take care of itself.”
This tepid response from Rev. Fulwider is problematic because he refuses to denounce the Husseini Islamic Center Mosque for promoting a speaker who calls for the murder of homosexuals. Rev. Fulwider can’t even say that calling for the murder of gays is wrong. Fulwider concludes by adding insult to injury, saying don’t worry about the gays they can take care of themselves.
Equally as troubling is the leadership at the Husseini Islamic Center Mosque in Sanford, FL never condemn or disagree with the words spoken by their speaker about the killing of gays – silence is consent.
