    Anti-pinkwashing conferences whitewash anti-gay terror in Palestinian areas

    Anti-pinkwashing conferences whitewash anti-gay terror in Palestinian areas

    I’ve written before about the latest fad on the American left, accusations of Israeli “pinkwashing.”

    Various anti-Israeli left-wing professors and professional activists, including those who hold themselves out as part of the gay rights movement, hold conferences to denounce pinkwashing, the positive publicity generated by Israel because of its record on treatment of gays, which stands alone in the Middle East as one of tolerance.

    Yet there is nary a word about the plight of gays in Palestinian Authority controlled areas.

    These Invisible Men do not get conferences held for them, because they are an inconvenient truth:

    “My purpose was not to show how horrible the Palestinians are toward their people, but rather to show Israel what its responsibility is toward them,” said gay Israeli filmmaker Yariv Mozer last month to an audience at San Francisco’s LGBT Community Center.

    Mozer, 34, was in town for the screening of his film “The Invisible Men” at Frameline 36: San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival, where it won the best documentary award.

    The film, which Mozer completed with his co-writer and producer Adam Rosner this past March after three years of work, documents the desperate situation of gay Palestinian men who illegally enter Israel and live in the Tel Aviv shadows….

    Although there are no accurate statistics as to how many gay Palestinian men are hiding in Israel, Mozer emphasized at the San Francisco event that it was not a matter of a few cases but rather “a phenomenon,” as he put it….

    Mozer chose to focus on the plight of these men through the personal stories of three individuals — all of whom sought help from the The Aguda – The National Association of GLBT in Israel. With the organization’s assistance, they received UN refugee status and the chance to start their lives over in a third country.

    Yes, that’s right. Being gay in Palestinian controlled areas qualifies one to receive refugee status from the U.N. for protection and resettlement abroad.

    There are no campus conferences for these Palestinian refugees.

    To the contrary, there is a cover-up.  When a group of anti-Israel gay activists visited Palestinian territories recently, “the delegation was told to hide their sexual orientation from their Palestinian  hosts” and one of its leaders told an anti-pinkwashing audience upon return that “homophobia is irrelevant in Palestine as ‘it doesn’t take  away from the fact that there is an occupation.  We can’t judge a country  by its attitudes towards homosexuals’.”

    Once again I quote Elder of Ziyon:

    To these sick people, it is literally impossible for Israel or Israelis to do anything admirable outside the context of the conflict. The conflict is everything…. Anything that could blunt the demonization of the Jewish state is by definition as evil as the Jewish state itself is.

    Ah, the homosexuals hate Israel more than they love their fellows. Didn’t Golda Meir say something that could be applicable to that?

      Yes, she did.

      I love this line:

      “We can’t judge a country [sic] by its attitudes towards homosexuals.”

      Take it from a straight white male: Oh, yes you can!!!

      Just as you can judge it by its use of rockets against a civilian population.

      Just as you can judge it by its suicide/homicide bombers who kill innocent civilians.

      Just as you can judge it by its teaching its children to hate and murder another people.

      Just as … well, like the British General Napier said concerning the Indian practice of burning widows,

      “You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.”

      Gay activists,

      You want me to take your insistence on redefining marriage seriously?

      When you slander a country which supports you … in your support of a people who would eradicate you … well, very well.

      You have your custom.

      And I have mine: I can’t take you seriously.

    Quick! Call Vanidy Jones! Maybe she, he, er s/he, s/h/it, er…

    Er, well maybe those folks at Harvard can help.

    The good prof seems adroit at handling a multitude of subjects …

    I do hope he has a multitude of counselors to support his very important efforts. There is so much ground to cover … one man cannot stand alone. I mean, so far things are awesome, but there will be a ton of retribution for standing up to “The Won”. Just ask John Roberts.

    Perhaps he has tapped in to an army (hidden in some cave?) of seven thousand faithful that have not bent their knee to the powers of the left? Anyways … party on Garth, be of good cheer … the game is afoot. heh

    these so-called ‘pinkwash’ nuts are far-left anti-semitic “queer” activists…which, for the un-initiated, means that they are not necessarily gay (in fact, probabaly not), they just identify as “outsiders” and so have glommed onto the gay rights movement as a vehicle by which to publicize their warped, hateful views.
    one would be hard-pressed to find many gay folks who share this small, radical group’s opinion of israel’s support for the equality of its gay citizens.

    It’s important to remember the hierarchy of identity politics: gender < race < sexuality < Muslim/Arab
