And yet so many gay groups remain steadfastly anti-Israel and pro Palestinian when they would last about a day walking with a same-sex sexual partner in any muslim country and Palestine.
Yahya Jammeh, Gambia’s President: ‘Satanic’ Homosexuals Who Visit Nation Will Regret Being Born

The leader of a small West African nation that receives American humanitarian aid has warned that any gay or lesbians found in his country will “regret” being born.
Yahya Jammeh, who has been president of Gambia since a bloodless coup in 1994, is not shy about expressing his anti-gay opinions. The president’s latest rant came during a speech on March 28 at the opening of the country’s parliament, according to Gambia’s Freedom Newspaper Online. In an interesting juxtaposition of themes, Jammeh called for continued peace in his country, promised to root out criminal activity and warned homosexuals to stay out of the region or suffer severe consequences.
“Homosexuality is anti-humanity. I have never seen homosexual chicken, or turkey,” Jammeh said, according to the Freedom Newspaper. “If you are convicted of homosexuality in this country, there will be no mercy for offenders.”
He continued thus:
Homosexuality is anti-god, anti-human, and anti-civilization. Homosexuals are not welcome in the Gambia. If we catch you, you will regret why you are born. I have buffalos from South Africa and Brazil and they never date each other. We are ready to eat grass but we will not compromise on this. Allowing homosexuality means allowing satanic rights. We will not allow gays here.
