    The problem with gay Palestinians is that Israelis dislike them for being Palestinian almost as much as Palestinians dislike them for being gay. It's like being Black and gay in America. The Blacks hate you for being gay and the gays discriminate against you for being Black. But well, I'm sure it's probably worse in the Palestine situation.

    Still though, in the Palestinian case, it's easier being Palestinian in the mix than it is to be an Israeli on the other side of the fence.

    After all, for a gay Israeli in Palestine, the Palestinians hate/dislike you for being gay AND for being Israeli!

    I wonder, is there a unified gay organization which includes Palestinians and Israeli's ? for the purpose of peace? or is it entirely too dangerous for gays to be that open ? purhaps West Bank gays/lesbians joining with Israelis for peace. I know of a very wealthy Gay Developer in Tel Aviv but he has to keep things undercover too.
