More Wake-Up Calls For Queers For Palestine

Last month, I created this animation with Israeli animator Yair Barnatan.

As of now, it has been viewed close to 4.7 million times across social media (not including the upload on Israeli news site Mako, who reported on it), and created quite a stir among many Israel-hating members of the LGBTQ community, who claimed it was homophobic.

Of course, they are either completely ignorant as to how their “heroes” and many of their fellow Israel-haters view them, or in complete denial.

So here’s some recent reminders that while they are ‘batting for the other team,’ they are also batting for the wrong team when it comes to Israel vs Hamas.

Alas, they seem to be having a really hard time getting the memo:

Jewish organizations expressed outrage after the San Francisco Pride parade on Wednesday denied there would be an Israeli float at the event but welcomed pro-Palestinian groups to participate.

“There is no Israeli float in the SF Pride Parade. SF Pride values the contributions of Jewish queer individuals in advocating for peace and acknowledge their enduring efforts. SF Pride is careful not to conflate Jewish groups and Jewish people living in America with the state of Israel,” the pride parade organizers said in a statement addressing what it said was misinformation about its policies. “‍We have welcomed and continue to welcome pro-Palestinian groups to the SF Pride Parade. If more are interested, they can join the Resistance Contingent (with the SF Pride Board), or if such a group wants to have its own contingent, we invite them to request a fee waiver.”
