No offense, Irvine, just wondering what your source for this story is? (My Farsi is rusty)

Here's an interesting article/essay regarding how fuct up -- and hypocritical -- the Moslem world is regarding homosexuality. Some good historical, cultural and religious context.

http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles...le.asp?ID=5704

I found this part the most interesting (not sure how true it is, but...):

A Moslem who is the active partner in sexual relations with other men is not considered a “homosexual” (the word has no pre-modern Arabic equivalent); quite the contrary, his sexual domination of another man may even confer a status of hyper-masculinity. He may use other men as substitutes for women, and at the same time have great contempt for them. This depraved view of sex, common in mainstream Moslem societies, is commonly found in the West only in prisons. In all cases it is the presence of love, affection, or equality among sexual partners that is intolerable. Equality in sexual relations is unimaginable in Islam, whether heterosexual or homosexual. Sex in Islamic societies has never been about mutuality between partners, but about the adult male’s achievement of pleasure through domination.

Interesting insight. Perhaps that explains the carnal allure of the 72 virgins a day.

^ very interesting insight as well.

when your government leaves you powerless and jobless, and you can't get laid because all the women are beneath the birka, perhaps blowing yourself up to arrive in a place where you can be sexually dominant sounds like quite an offer.
