Everybody has condemned the execution of two teenagers in Iran. Everybody? No, there’s one exception: Europe’s biggest newspaper, the German tabloid „BILD“. On July 27 it featured the following story:
Here two child defilers are hanged
Tehran — Their eyes are bandaged, the wrapped-up hangmen put the ropes around their necks: A few seconds later those two child defilers are dead. The young men were sentenced to death before an Iranian court, because they allegedly kidnapped and raped a 13-year-old boy.
BILD is known for its bias to distort facts and smear people. BILDblog.de, which is exclusively dedicated to expose all the lies of BILD, runs a story about the BILD coverage of this incident. As far as facts are concerned: the two teenagers have never been accused of kidnapping. But of course, the real scandal is BILD’s thinly veiled sympathy for the court’s decision to hang two „child defilers“.
Meanwhile, the gay online magazine queer.de has bestowed its infamous „homo gherkin“ award on BILD for leaving behind all standards of accurateness and cheering the execution of two minors.
