This is the reason that Sharia Law Muslims are a danger to the world. They refuse to compromise and even worse they thwart at every turn those who do not accept their ways from practicing their own personal beliefs. Once again Sharia Law is not compatible with democracy or even global cooperation.

Those on the Left who are pushing transgender special treatment are the same people who are supporting those Muslim countries that practice Sharia Law. And these nations are the same nations that have made contributions of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. They did this to buy a United States President. It would surprise no one if Hillary had nothing to say on this issue or even supported Sharia Law Muslims on this issue.

The Telegraph reports:

More than 50 Muslim countries have banned gay and transgender groups from attending a United Nations conference dedicated to ending Aids.

African Men for Sexual Health and Rights and Ishtar Men Who Have Sex With Men were among those denied access to the meeting, which will be held next month.

Though no official reason was given for the ban, Western officials pointed out that nearly all of the groups denied access to the event were linked to LGBT rights.

The United States has already protested the decision, with the US ambassador Samantha Power noting that the disallowed groups “appear to have been chosen for their involvement in LGBTI, transgender or youth advocacy.”

Officials from the EU and Canada have also written to Mogens Lykketoft., the president of the UN general assembly, to express their displeasure.

Given that transgender people are 49 times more likely to be living with HIV than the general population, their exclusion from the high-level meeting will only impede global progress in combating the HIV/Aids pandemicSamantha Power, US ambassador

“We are deeply concerned that at every negotiation on a new General Assembly gathering, the matter of NGO (non-governmental organization) participation is questioned and scrutinized,” Ms Power wrote.

“The movement to block the participation of NGOs on spurious or hidden grounds is becoming epidemic and severely damages the credibility of the U.N.”

“Given that transgender people are 49 times more likely to be living with HIV than the general population, their exclusion from the high-level meeting will only impede global progress in combating the HIV/Aids pandemic,” she added.

The ban was requested in a letter from the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, a group comprising of 57 states including Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The letter did not given an explicit reason for why it did not want the LGBT rights groups to attend the conference.

It is not the first time the UN has been embroiled in a row over the participation of gay and transgender groups at its events.

In 2014, when Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary General, announced it would recognise the same sex marriages of all its staff, Russia attempted to block the move.

It was joined by 43 other countries opposed to recognising gay unions, which included Saudi Arabia, China, Iran, India, Egypt, Pakistan, and Syria.

They were unsuccessful in overturning Mr Ban’s decision.
