And the gay community stands shoulder to shoulder with their murderers. The silence from left wing leadership and gay groups. Islam trumps all. Another in a long string of blows to Linda “sharia” Sarsour’s “intersectionality” narrative. Even gay leadership in America stands with the sharia left. Scroll here. The sanction of brutal of gays under Islam continues. I spoke at an LGBT event at the RNC decrying the treatment of gays under Islam, and the mainstream media attacked the event with a vengeance. Gay leadership has condemned me (and my colleagues) who oppose the most brutal, homophobic and extreme ideology on the face of the earth, while stumping for their executioners. They were loud and proud against our ads highlighting the brutal oppression and subjugation of gays under sharia. They were holding press conferences condemning me. Gay organizations in America say nothing about this, but loudly condemned my ad campaign highlighting Muslim oppression of gays under the sharia. That includes the San Francisco Board of Examiners, the Human Rights Commission, SFHRC head transgender Theresa Sparks, but most especially the enemedia. They called our ads hate and issued a resolution condemning our AFDI ad campaign (the first of its kind) against our organization for merely quoting Muslim political leaders, spiritual leaders and cultural voices in the Muslim community who call for the torture and death of gay people.

Sky Islamic channel Peace TV faces ban in Britain for saying gay people are worse than pigs and magicians should be executed
- Peace TV found to have shown four programmes which breached Ofcom’s code
- Included an imam saying homosexuality was ‘rampant’ and threatened families
- Channel, broadcast on Sky, said programmes were based on Islamic teachingsAn Islamic TV station that said gay people are worse than pigs and magicians should be executed faces being stripped of its UK broadcasting licence.
Peace TV, based in Dubai, was found to have shown four programmes which breached Ofcom regulations on inciting crime, hate speech and abuse.
The channel, which is broadcast on Sky and also airs in the US, said the programmes were based on Islamic teachings.
Peace TV, based in Dubai, featured a long rant about the ‘evils’ of homosexuality by Imam Qasim Khan
The regulator said one show – called Strengthening Your Family – The Valley of the Homosexuals – made reference to homosexual people dying ‘from a disease they contracted because they are homosexual’ and said homosexuality was ‘a very unnatural type of love that is energised by the influence of (Satan)’.
According to the Ofcom report, presenter Imam Qasim Khan said: ‘Then they make laws now, the newest and most brash and insane laws, laws that protect homosexuals and even make it legal for them to marry each other.
‘Men marrying men. Being on television in front of our children, kissing each other in the mouth, walking down the street, hugging and kissing – this society has gone insane.
‘Even an animal that is defiled by Islam, the pig – as nasty and corrupted and contaminated as a pig is – you never see two male pigs that are trying to have sex together. That’s insanity.
‘These are animals. Human beings are supposed to be dignified, they’re thinking beings, a human being is supposed to be the thinking being.’
Lord Production, who hold the licence for Peace TV, said the March 2018 show was ‘an expression of Imam Qasim Khan’s views on male homosexuality, reflecting the teachings of Islam’.
Khan referred to homosexual people dying ‘from a disease they contracted because they are homosexual’ and said homosexuality was ‘a very unnatural type of love that is energised by the influence of (Satan)’
Peace TV was founded in 2006 and has since been banned in India and Bangladesh.
Hasanul Haq Inu, Bangladesh’s Information Minister, said of the channel: ‘Is not consistent with Muslim society, the Quran, Sunnah, Hadith, Bangladesh’s Constitution, our culture, customs and rituals.’
Ofcom rules on inciting crime, hate and abuse
Under section three of its code, Ofcom reserves the right to ban any TV or radio broadcast that promotes ‘crime, disorder, hatred and abuse’.
The code includes an exception that allows journalists to interview people with ‘extreme or challenging views’ if it is in the public interest to do so.
In judging whether the code has been broken, Ofcom will examine whether the programme has sufficiently challenged the views, or if it actively promoted them.
In the case of Peace TV, its long, unchallenged rants by Imam Qasim Khan were clearly in breach of section three.
Its founder, Zaskir Naik, was barred from UK by Theresa May in 2010 for his ‘unacceptable behaviour’.
The 44-year-old had been due to give a series of lectures in London and Sheffield, but was told by Mrs May that visiting the UK was ‘a privilege, not a right’.
The home secretary can prevent people from entering Britain if they believe there is a threat to national security, public order or the safety of citizens.
Ms May said: ‘Numerous comments made by Dr Naik are evidence to me of his unacceptable behaviour.
‘Coming to the UK is a privilege, not a right and I am not willing to allow those who might not be conducive to the public good to enter the UK.
‘Exclusion powers are very serious and no decision is taken lightly or as a method of stopping open debate on issues.’

Peace TV disagreed with Ofcom’s suggestion that the Imam’s views were hate speech as, according to the report, he did not ‘call for violence or punishment of homosexuals’ and that his aim was to ‘outlaw the practice of homosexuality itself’.
ISIS supporter murdered Rochdale imam for practising ‘black magic’
A British ISIS supporter was jailed for life in 2016 for stalking and murdering an imam because he practiced a form of healing which the terror group consider ‘black magic’, in a case referred to in the Ofcom ruling.
Mohammed Syeedy, 21, was consumed by hatred of Jalal Uddin, 71, so acted as a getaway driver for another man, Mohammed Kadir, 24, who bludgeoned Mr Uddin to death in a children’s play area.
The pair despised Mr Uddin because he used a form of healing involving amulets, known as taweez, which are said to bring good fortune.
They stalked Mr Uddin for six months and called him ‘Voldemort’,the evil wizard in Harry Potter, because they saw his faith healing as ‘black magic’, the trial heard.
Syeedy was handed a life sentence and ordered to serve a minimum of 24 years. Kadir fled the UK three days after the killing.It also broadcast a programme in November 2017 with a scholar discussing execution for those who practice magic, or sahir.
‘The correct reliable and majority opinion is that the punishment for a Sahir is that the person should be killed,’ said scholar Shaikh Ashfaque Salafi, according to the Ofcom report.
‘I want to make it clear that the magician’s art or the practice of magic cannot be forgiven by way of repentance.
‘To save his life he may seek repentance and get away with it, but at the first opportunity when he has a dispute with someone he will use his magic skills.
‘For that reason, for the benefit of all it is better to cut it out from its roots.’
The producers said magic, or sahir, in this case was not about ‘Harry Houdini, Paul Daniels, David Blaine or other entertainers performing magic tricks for money or fun’ but rather witchcraft and sorcery.
Ofcom recorded two further breaches: one where a programme said those who left Islam should be punished by death and a second where it was said women under 18 getting married was ‘no problem at all’, even if local laws forbid it.
A fifth programme which was investigated was found not to be in breach.
According to Ofcom, Lord Production said its programmes were ‘derived from a particular religious viewpoint, of which its viewers would be aware, and that such programming includes advice to those viewers as to how to lead their lives. It should therefore not be surprising if, at times, such advice causes offence to different sections of the public’.
The regulator said it will consider breaches for the imposition of a statutory sanction.
MailOnline has asked Sky how many people watch Peace TV and whether it carries out any checks on channels before allowing them to reach their customers.
