“Queers Against Israeli Apartheid” Try To Stop The Music

Queers Against Israeli Apartheid have decided that rainbows are not good enough for the 2014 Auckland Pride Festival. How else do you explain them raining on the parade?

Yep, she’s so f****** proud.. to be supporting those who would have her and those with her sexual orientation killed in an instant.

They accuse Israel of “pinkwashing” (because homosexuals here have rights and do not live in fear of their lives), but what they are doing is “palestinian society intolerance washing.”

    I honestly have no idea why they are conflating these two issues. It’s beyond ridiculous and it makes no sense. They are completely separate issues. it’s akin to me forming a group called men with beards against israeli apartheid.

    And as you rightly point out, palestinian society is not exactly tolerant of LGBT lifestyles. Why not form a group called Queers for LGBT rights in Palestine. At least that name would make sense

      I’m gay and I couldn’t agree with you more, Steve.

      Steve. Stop trying to be rational. Their Jewhate is beyond ANY sense

    I truly hope they are all hanged in the public square in Iran some day.

      Or, better, in Ramallah.

      • BigHabsFan

        Are you advocating hanging gay people? If yes, WOW, that’s sick!

        • unpluggged

          I want them hung not because they are “gay” (BTW, what kind of word is that???), but because they want me dead, don’t you see the point here?

  • LJ Spivak

    I’d say Ramallah would be a more fitting spot for the hanging, but Israel would probably prevent it from actually happening.

  • Travis

    Queers for Palestine is akin to Turkeys for Thanksgiving.

  • Kim

    I’ve never seen those people on any pride I have been but nevertheless I always feel embarrassed when I hear about them. How can anyone be so beyond reality?!

  • Harold

    Let them parade in Gaza. They would have a gay old time

  • AegysLTS

    Those ladies should have read about how Palestine treated their gays….and their women…
