The U.S. And Chile Got The UN Security Council To Talk LGBT Rights
The Huffington Post – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/un-security-council-lgbt_55db6f4de4b08cd3359cdde6?ncid
“The most powerful body at the United Nations on Monday had its first ever conversation about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. A group of speakers — including two gay Middle Eastern survivors of anti-LGBT persecution by the Islamic State militant group — addressed an informal gathering of top diplomats whose countries sit on the U.N. Security Council.” So what are the UN doing to aid LGBT communities under ISIS rule?

“On Monday, two men told members of the U.N. Security Council what life is like for a gay person under Islamic State rule in Iraq and Syria. After the town of Idlib, Syria, was taken over by the Nusra Front, a group linked to al-Qaeda, men suspected of being gay were tortured and executed, Subhi Nahas said.” So what is life really like for a gay person living under ISIS rule?

Islamophobia: Understanding Anti-Muslim Sentiment in the West
Gallup – http://www.gallup.com/poll/157082/islamophobia-understanding-anti-muslim-sentiment-west.aspx
“Researchers and policy groups define Islamophobia in differing detail, but the term’s essence is essentially the same, no matter the source: An exaggerated fear, hatred, and hostility toward Islam and Muslims that is perpetuated by negative stereotypes resulting in bias, discrimination, and the marginalization and exclusion of Muslims from social, political, and civic life.” How can we better understand Islamophobia in the West?
