Homophobe of the Month: Ali Abdussalam Treki1,463 views
Ali Abdussalam Treki, from Libya, was elected President of the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly on 10 June 2009. On September, 23, he was asked by journalists to give his opinion on the UN resolution which calls for the universal decriminalisation of homosexuality.
Ali Abdussalam Treki’s response (excerpt): “That matter is very sensitive, very touchy. As a Muslim, I am not in favour of it… It is not accepted by the majority of countries. My opinion is not in favour of this matter at all. I think it’s not really acceptable by our religion, our tradition. It is not acceptable in the majority of the world. And there are some countries that allow that, thinking it is a kind of democracy… I think it is not.”
Dear Dr. Treki,
In light of your new appointment as President of the United Nations General Assembly, as well the above gems of dazzling intelligence that you have bestowed upon humankind, we would like to welcome you to your new well-deserved post as Bekhsoos’s Homophobe of the Month where you will be able to disperse your hatred and bigotry from your esteemed position of status.
Besides the fact that your opinion is in complete contradiction of what the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights generally propagates, the way you backed that opinion does in fact justify everything perfectly: “It is not acceptable in the majority of the world.”
You have enlightened us. Following your example, many other opinions can now be backed up and deemed valid, and even unquestionable.
- Your face must be rearranged; it is not acceptable to be ugly by the majority of the media.
- You should be our slave, from now on; the majority of the world practiced slavery widely, and two holy monotheistic books, the Bible and the Quran, both condone slavery.
And the list can go on and on…
So basically, dear readers, I am sure that after reading how RIGHT we could be by a very simple means of going with the majority, and rendered undeniably so by Dr. Treki’s logic, you would LOVE to voice your opinion of thanks and respect to him.
You can protest his appointment by writing to the UN on Fax: +1 or online: http://www.un.org/ga/contactus.asp
