It's true! From what I can tell, they've all moved to Iraq, which seems to have a very large proportional of gays. Odd that, considering that homosexuality is a Capital Offence in Iraq as well, and men have been hung there for it quite recently.
The entire ME is a hotbed of bum-banditry. People can tell me till they're blue in the face, that just because the men like to hold hands, doesn't mean that they're intimately familiar with each others prostates. Yeh right!
