Israel protects its minorities as do other Western democracies, it’s only within the Muslim world homosexuals are prosecuted and murdered for practicing their lifestyle. So why is the Gay Community sponsoring a faux ‘aid flotilla’ to the Gaza Strip that’s not experiencing a humanitarian crisis, and is seeking weapons to use in killing more Jews?
Apparently ideology trumps fact, that these same homosexuals helping the Hamas to break the legal weapons blockade imposed upon Gaza, would be murdered on sight if they strolled through Gaza City while walking hand in hand. Just saying. KGS
Queers Should Focus on Arab World and Iran, Not Israel

The LGBT communities of the world are now confronted with a strange fusion of homophobic radical Islamists and extreme left-wing groups.
In recent weeks, the anti-Israeli groups Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QAIA) and Siegebusters have taken shots at the one Middle Eastern country that respects the rights of its LGBT community. As 100,000 people took part in the annual Gay Pride Parade in Tel Aviv, QAIA stoked hatred of the Jewish state at similar parades in Brooklyn and Queens. They are slated to march in the jumbo Pride Parade in Manhattan on June 26.
Meanwhile, Siegebusters — whose membership appears to overlap with QAIA’s –– are raising funds to sponsor a flotilla to violate Israel’s legal naval blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
The alliance between Hamas and Siege Busters/ QAIA is unsettling. Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahar has said, “You in the West do not live like human beings. You do not even live like animals. You accept homosexuality. And now you criticize us?”
Both the European Union and the United States have designated Hamas a terrorist organization because it showers Israel’s southern cities with rockets and calls for the obliteration of the Jewish state. The purpose of the naval blockade is to prevent weapons and rocket smuggling into Gaza.
