The Gambian President has identified “excessive greed”, “obsession with world domination”, and “homosexuality” as the three biggest threats to human existence.

In an address to the 68th United Nations General Assembly on Friday, Yahya Jammeh said: “Greed had led not only to colonization and the plundering of African and Asian human and material resources, but also to two wars that had been wrongly termed World Wars”.

Speaking of obsession with world domination, including the resolve to use nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, Jammeh argued that all forms of human tragedy and catastrophe emanated from Western powers. 
All living things needed to reproduce for posterity, he said of homosexuality, which he added, is being promoted by western powers as a human right in all its forms and manifestations.  

“They would become extinct when they could no longer reproduce.  Any person promoting the end of human reproduction was promoting human extinction,” the leader of the smallest country in mainland Africa told the UN on September 27.

Last year, Jammeh vow to lock homosexuals in “different cells” and warn them against visiting the West African country, The Gambia. He had in 2009 threatened to cut-off homosexuals’ heads.
