The Arabs called “Palestinians” have learned that the Left will turn its gaze from the worst of their human rights abuses solely because it’s politically expedient to do so, and never be held accountable…
Last year, when Eurovision came to Israel, Maikey claimed that gay rights was part of “Israel’s propaganda campaign”, and insisted that gay people should boycott Israel because the “struggles for queer and Palestinian liberation are inseparable.” But, according to the Palestinian Authority, they are extremely separable. But they’re also entirely separable for Maikey and Al-Qaws.
And “queer” liberation has to take a seat at the very back of the “Palestinian liberation” bus.
Al-Qaws isn’t arguing that gay rights are better in the Palestinian Authority than in Israel. Its real argument is that gay rights is much less important than creating an Islamic terror state in Israel.
That’s not even ‘pinkwashing’. It’s pinktrashing.
When Muslims Oppress Gays, It’s the Fault of the Jews
Sharia, or Islamic law, imposes the death penalty on homosexuality. That’s the way it is from Qatar to Iran, and Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan. So it shouldn’t have been much of a surprise when a gathering by Al-Qaws, a gay right group operating under Palestinian Authority rule, was met with severe threats.
The Palestinian Authority police, a paramilitary terror organization which draws its personnel from supporters of Fatah, the core group of the PLO, warned that gay activists would be arrested and tried.
A spokesman for the PA police said that gay rights were “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society” and “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs.” That was a convoluted way of saying that homosexuality was unacceptable under Islam and Islamic law.
While the PA urged locals to turn in members of Al-Qaws and ‘Palestinians’ denounced them and called for their deaths, the Soros-funded gay rights organization jumped into action and blamed Israel.
In an official Twitter statement, Al-Qaws claimed that “singling out incidents of homophobia in Palestinian society ignores the complexities of Israel’s colonization and military occupation being a contributing factor to Palestinian LGBTQ oppression.” And it told foreign journalists to “situate Palestinian LGBTQ oppression within the larger context of Israeli occupation.”
Somehow, Muslim terrorists targeting gay people is the fault of the Jews.
Groups advocating for abused women in the Palestinian Authority routinely blame Muslim men hitting their wives on Israel. It makes just as much sense for Al-Qaws to blame threats from the Palestinian Authority on Israel. If it wasn’t for the “occupation”, the Muslims of Gaza and the West Bank would enjoy the same standard of gay rights, from floggings to hangings, of Islamic countries around the world.
