An official for the Iranian-sponsored Popular Mobilization Units declared in a video that Iraq is not a country for homosexuals or collaborators, and that his organization will obliterate government protestors. The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) posted a video on Thursday that revealed PMU Official Ali Al-Husseini’s anti-gay diatribe. “Iraq is not a country for collaboration, espionage, Joker [gangs], or homosexuals,” he said, according to MEMRI’s translation. “Every day, I hear you call people filthy. [But] you are the filthy ones! Your families are filthy – filthy; You are the filthy ones! Your families are filthy. You were brought up in filth. LGBT and human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell told The Jerusalem Post: “These are the words of the pro-Iranian enforcer in Iraq. Al-Husseini has been responsible for shooting dead Iraqi civilians who were peacefully protesting against the corruption, poverty and austerity imposed by the Tehran-backed government in Baghdad.
