The website of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards reported the arrest of “a network of homosexuals and satanists” in the western Iranian city of Kermanshah, close to the country’s border with Iraq, on Thursday, The Guardian reported.

A source told The Guardian “the raid took place on Tuesday night when some 80 people, including both straight and gay Iranians, had gathered for a birthday party in Kermanshah. At least 17 people who had tattoos, make-up, or were wearing rainbow bracelets were blindfolded and taken to an unknown location, according to a local source. Partygoers were filmed by the elite forces and had their mobile phones confiscated.”

The website did not specify how many people were arrested but said they had been under surveillance for some time.

Homosexuality is punishable by death in Iran and officials have gone so far as to claim it doesn’t exist within the country.

    The funny thing is that all the hippies, gays and anarchists here in the west are the ones screaming the loudest about how great and super wonderful Iran is.

    • I never heard a hippie, gay nor anarchist say such a thing. Never.

    when you see a picture like this of corpses dangling from cranes, you know that Iran is conducting one of its Islamo-fascist parties. This story is simply about another so-call religious purge to enforce the contradictory edicts of Islam. This pseudo religion is being used for the purpose of imposing fascism on the masses using a religious guise. I truth, the Mullahs who control the fascist regime like Kahmheine (who are of course pure evil like Hilter was)probably receive orgasmic levels of pleasure from hanging innocent people. They must in order to cover their tracks accuse these people of religious crimes, when in truth, they are only exerting freedom. Freedom is a dirty word in a place like Iran and they detest all notions of it more than they even detest homosexuality.
