Palestinian Authority Blocks Gay Groups From AIDS UN Event.

Pinkwashing is the favorite term that anti-Israel activists use to shrug off the fact that the PLO/Palestinian Authority is about as gay-friendly as Iran. But the real pinkwashers are gay anti-Israel activists

"A group of 51 Muslim states has blocked 11 gay and transgender organizations from attending a high-level meeting at the United Nations next month on ending AIDS, sparking a protest by Canada, the United States and the European Union.

Samantha Power, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, wrote to General Assembly President Mogens Lykketoft and said the groups appeared to have been blocked for involvement in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy.

The Islamic countries involved include plenty of real countries and one fake country, Palestine. As of this moment, Queers Against Israeli Apartheid had no comment. Neither did any of the other anti-Israel and anti-Jewish hate groups who throw around pinkwashing claims.

And why would they? While left-wing gay rights activists agitate for a Palestinian terror state, the PLO and Hamas are none too fond of them.

The Palestinian National Authority awards the death penalty for homosexuals.

A 21-year-old university student with serious professional ambitions, Nawal wouldn't dream of performing [his drag show] in his hometown, where homosexuality, as in the rest of the Palestinian territories, is strictly taboo, sometimes violently so. Last year, a group of gay Palestinians visiting East Jerusalem from the United States were threatened and one of them badly beaten after they announced plans to join an Israeli gay pride rally.

The Palestinian is asking for permission to remain in Israel because he fears for his life if he is expelled to the Palestinian Authority.

Speaking to Haaretz, he said that "in other times, when they brought me to the roadblock the entire village chased me and beat me, and nearly killed me. I prefer to sit in prison than to go back."

Pinkwashing. It's what the anti-Israel left does for the PLO."

"It's not a "hate group" as long as it comes out of Israel, is it? Ever read this in your own Hebrew bible?"
Leviticus 20:13
"If a man also lies with a man, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

Sometimes your mindless statements confuse me
Are you saying that Israel should start putting homosexuals to death.
(the term Gay is an abomination of language)

-- I thought putting homosexuals to death only happened in mohammedan countries --

Sorry Nyack. You're just as bonkers as you always were
Can't you read this simple article and understand it?
It's nothing to do with Jews or Israel.
Do try to be a little more focused.

Shil O. Well said. If we are going to bring Israel into the discussion, which Nyack seems determined to do, it has one of the most liberal attitudes towards the LGBT community than any country in the Middle East.

Bunch of Muslim bashers on this thread, without a doubt, who use any thing to spill vitriolic hate, under the guise of ''discussion'.

Does not wash, the bible treatise, etc., and the rest, especially, lectures on the Quran - Quite transparent, as to the real purpose, here, that it only seals the grimy, underpinnings of hate and discrimination, targeting certain ethnic groups, and not others....
- Reminiscent of Nazis, for example, or any other oppressive, dominant group or regime/power..
Some never cease to use the same old rhetoric to try and spread fear.
Frontpagemag, of course, is selectively, used... being what it is!!

Gillian's 'history' lesson is made up, poor thing - guess it's wishfull thinking, on her part.

The West Bank is not part of Israel, it is oPT, i.e., illegally occupied Palestinian Territory.

The Israeli settlements in the West Bank are illegal.

As for Jews, around the world, Israel is not their residence, home, nor do many, if not most, feel it is their 'birthright'.
As for this propaganda post, it's always worth remembering, not to believe everything one reads and to consider the source (s)....

on the same subject... Israel, stops Christians and Muslims on a routine basis, from travelling freely; every day, there are attacks on Israeli Muslims and Christians and Palestinians, whether they are trying to go to work, school, or anywhere else. They face discrimination and unequal treatment, and abuses of their human rights.
African migrants, in the country, face similar racial discrimination and abuse.
Israel is rife with racist attitudes; and it's laws discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, i.e., whether one is Jewish, or not.. Freedom of movement may exist for some - others are kept in freezing cold and sweltering sun, at checkpoints, for hours.. even those who want to marry, are often denied freedom of movement and permits to travel, even in medical emergencies!

While I realize it will put out Nyack's FLAMES....can we just look at this as yet another instance of hate against innocent people, based on their sexuality?

Israel is a tiny country with enemies on all sides, simply opposed to a country of Jews in the midst. EVERY COUNTRY has problems and shortcomings. The fact is that:

1) Israel has the absolute right to defend itself against repeatedly threatened annihilation, as does every other sovereign state.

2) Compared to the vastly unenlightened countries around it, Israel is vastly better in most categories, including its treatment of gays, which is what this article is about.

3) Many Islamic countries are NOTORIOUS for being racist, as is Islam itself. Consider that Islamic slavery of blacks has been going on and STILL is going on.

4) Israel is the ONLY country in the Islamic world where Christians are increasing their population. In virtually every other Middle East country, Christian communities are imploding and going extinct.

5) Consider that the "Keepers of Islam", the Saudis, won't even let non-Muslims into the country for any other reason that employment or business deals, won't even let the non-Muslims they DO let in build churches or other houses of worship. Even in "tolerant" Islamic Indonesia, hundreds of churches are burnt down by Muslims each year.

Israel takes care to protect ALL religions' houses of worship in Israel.

6) Numerous Muslim gays have left Islamic-controlled areas, notably Gaza and the PA to ESCAPE TO Israel, so that they can live without fear of intimidation, torture and death.

Israel is light years beyond its Islamic counterparts, and the Islamic world and their useful idiots unfortunately resort to libel, hyperbole and outright lies to try to mask their inferiority.

Just ignore the homophobes and anti-human rights bigots Nyack and Jess and their cabal of bigots. they hate Jews and Israel so much that that is all they can talk about. They never have seen an islamic hate scripture or act, like these barbaric, hatemongering, homophobic hate states of the Org. of Islamic Cooperation who all refuse to accept the Universal Charter on Human Rights and instead have their own Cairo Declaration based on tribal, cruel, bigoted anti-gay-woman-child-non-muslim-dog etc etc Shariah Law. But that doesn't bother Nyack and Jess and their gang of haters. They never condemn islamic hate, violence and oppression against anyone.

Where is their righteous rage against the illegal occupation by violence by Muslims of the Temple Mount, the holiest of Jewish sites going back 3000 years but occupied by Muslims when they conquered Jerusalem and they deliberately built their al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, which is covered in Islamic hate scriptures to demean Jews and Judaism, and they won't allow Jews even to stand on the site and pray. Where is the outrage over this "occupation"? And Israel allows this in order to prevent more Muslim hate and violence.

They don't care that the scriptures they quote are not, and maybe never have, been enforced and don't pertain to gay people but to pagan temple prostitutes.

They don't care that Israel is the only free democratic country in a whole region of Islamic hate, violence, intolerance, homophobia, bigotry, oppression of non-Muslims, and no freedom of conscience, press, speech or religion. They don't care that Christianity is being exterminated in every Muslim occupied land and by the PA in Bethlehem, where it was born. Doesn't matter unless you can blame a Jew.

They don't care about the Muslim suicide bombers who entered Israel with others from the PA and Gaza to blow up school buses, cafes and hospitals so Israel has to protect itself from these primitive bigots and keep them out. A rational action by any measure, Just not allowed for Israel..

When is the last time the state of Israel threw a gay person off a tall building then stoned them to death if they weren't killed outright - all the time screaming the name of their Satanic god? Can't think of a one, can anyone else?

Where does Jesus Christ, who the Koran, Hadith and Sira blaspheme, tho no Christians riot, burn Korans or mosques and kill Muslims over this, like Muslims do if they are "offended", where does Jesus teach the killing of those who don't follow him, question or criticize him or his teachings or leave his religion like Mohammed and Allah do? Never. Only Islam teaches killing people who leave it or criticize or question it. It is a cult of hate and death.

The PA and Hamas in Gaza are so notoriously corrupt and routinely torture, imprison or kill their critics, journalists, gays, non-Muslims etc, but not a peep from Nyack or Jess or the brain dead leftist 'Gays for Oppression''- which is what they should be called..

You can't reason with stupidity and deliberate ignorance. So just ignore the bigots, homophobes, anti-woman, anti-child, Jew-hating hatemongers.

I am gay and despair at the stupidity among some LGBT people who fall in with this chorus of ignorant hate - supporting and promoting the very people who want to exterminate them, but I imagine there were some of the very same people who also supported the Nazis (some of whom were nice people). And I am offended and sickened by Nyack, Jess and their cabal of Jew hating homophobes who seem to claim to be "Progressives" and "Liberals" yet they don't care a damn about the victims of Islam. None. I would love to have these bigots meet my gay Palestinian friend who is desperate to get out because he knows he is going to be tortured and killed before long, and by his own good Muslim family probably if not by the PA itself. But, as he has told me, he can't even flee into Israel for safety (Tel Aviv is one of the most gay-friendly cities in the world) because he said he will be killed by his family just for going to Israel to live! where is the outrage among these so-called "Liberals"?? How many others just like my friend are there trapped in these horrible, primitive Islamic black holes? But Nyack and Jess don't care about him and people like him.

It is a blot on this site that there are so many on here who are like these two.

Thanks for the story. But it is no surprise. Heard it all before.

No surprise for any of this from the usual suspects in the Religion of Peace and the 51 hate states ruled by it.

And they are true liberals on top of it Stan! I have never seen Nyack be able to get one two or 3 ideas across in 1 or 3 statements...they always seem to have to be said in 57 statements..well maybe not that many..but you get the idea anyway. Kind of like brain farts!
