DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Washington has condemned the United Arab Emirates' arrest of more than two dozen gays at what police called a mass homosexual wedding and warned that any attempt to treat detainees with male hormones would violate international law.
Police raided a hotel chalet near Abu Dhabi earlier this month and arrested 22 Emirati men and three Arabs from neighboring countries, the Interior Ministry said Saturday. Police reported finding a dozen men dressed as brides and a dozen others in male Arab dress, apparently preparing for a mock marriage ceremony.
The authorities said the detainees, some of whom had been arrested before, are likely to be tried on charges related to adultery and prostitution. They also said the men would be tested for male-hormone levels and could possibly face government-ordered hormone injections.
In criticizing the arrests, U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said in a statement Monday: "We call on the government of the United Arab Emirates to immediately stop any ordered hormone and psychological treatment and to comply with the standards of international law."
An Interior Ministry official close to the investigation told The Associated Press on Tuesday that hormones would be given only with the suspects' consent -- either as a sentence-reduction option if found guilty in court or voluntarily before trial.
Outward homosexual behavior is banned in the United Arab Emirates and most other Arab countries.
The arrested men were undergoing psychological evaluation last week. The Interior Ministry's department of social support has said it would try to direct the men away from homosexual behavior, including recommending male hormone treatment if the men are found to be deficient.
Also Tuesday, an Abu Dhabi police officer confessed to improperly releasing pictures of the detainees, said the Interior Ministry official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give press statements.
Local newspapers have published grainy photos of the suspects, showing some of the "brides" wearing sleeveless dresses and what appeared to be wigs and kneeling at the feet of the "grooms."
The officer would probably stand trial and could lose his job, the official said.
Sexuality of muslim men (this is from first hand observations):
1. "Men and boys are for pleasure and women are for (male) babies."
2. It is not homosexual activity if you are the "pitcher" or the one "penetrating."
3. Non-muslim women are all whores and prostitutes
4. Sex with non-muslim women doesn't count (as cheating) because they are infidels
5. If a muslim women is raped, it is her fault (she should have fought back harder)
6. It is OK to marry 13 year olds and have up to 4 wives. It is OK to divorce a wife once she gets too old and add a younger bride to your "stable"
7. It is OK to "marry" a muslim woman, have sex with her and them divorce her - it is called a "pleasure marriage"
This is their mindset. The quicker you understand this the better you will comprehend their bizarre behavior...
There were experiments long ago with giving Testosterone to gay men, and all it did was make them randier. Is "randier" a word? It is now. Where was I... anyway, it didn't make them straight, just made them much more gay in a sense. Ultra-gay, we'll call it. 2 new words in one post. Although the second one is hyphenated. But you get my point.
Was M. Jackson one of the ones arrested?
That article is a knee slapper, You cant write comedy like that!
Pat Robertson must be creaming himself imagining the ability to do this in the U.S.
Why is Washington getting involved in this at all?
Yep, grab a copy of "Men's Health" and you can see this process at work.
(I won't ask about D.C.)
It's the state department.
I am not sure Washington is getting into this. It would seem our State Department is sticking their nose in where it doesnt belong again.
What's the U.A.E. doing in Massachusetts?
The State Department pretty much seems to be autonomous at times. They need to be taken in hand badly.
Couldn't they have just emigrated to San Francisco and avoided the hassle?
Hey, this one made me think for a minute (whats so bad about this).
I never thought of the gay movement as a fifth column for islamic penetration of our culture, but here we go.
