The poor Israelis can’t do anything right. The “progressive left” criticise everything they do, even when it totally agrees with progressive-left values. They have demonised the Israelis so much that they appear incapable of acknowledging anything good that they do.
At a gay rights conference Friday dedicated to advancing and supporting “allied movements for justice and equality,” hundreds of demonstrators showed up to obstruct a Jewish reception hosted by an organization that builds connections between LGBTQ communities in North America and Israel.
…protestors filled the hallway holding signs that read “Cant Pinkwash away your guilt” and “Pinkwashing isn’t pretty.”
The term “pinkwashing” is used to suggest that Israel promotes its tolerance of and protections for LGBTQ individuals as a way to downplay or obscure its treatment of Palestinians.
They choose to ignore the fact that many gay Palestinians have fled Palestine for the safety and acceptance of Israel. I challenge the same activists to call Palestine out for its abuse of gay Palestinian men and women. It seems that all gay activists are equal but some are more equal than others.
