    Today, on the Tel Aviv Pride Parade, our queer-anarchist activist group, Mashpritzot, protested against pinkwashing and the "gay" community's priorities. The group painted themselves pink in protest against pinkwashing - the cynical use of the Israeli "gay" community in order to paint Israel as a "liberal", "progressive" country, and divert attention from the occupation and apartheid against the Palestinians.

    They also carried signs protesting the "gay" community's priorities, reading: "While you fight for gay marriage, LGBTQs are sleeping on the street", "While you fight for the right to have children, LGBTQ youth are facing parental violence", "One quarter of bisexuals suffer from poor health", and more.

    In the middle of the Pride Parade, they spread a huge rainbow flag and fell on it, feigning death. The sign seen in the picture reads: "Here lie the victims of the community's priorities".

    It is about human rights, not only about Palestine. Big difference... Unless you are racist or against the Palestinian people?

    Have you met a Palestinian? I guess not... Palestinian guys and Israeli guys look alike, no difference.

    Just my 1 cent because I am a Jew and cheapo lol

    I am not surprised...

    US Embassy in Israel bans gay Palestinian speakers

    Not a single Palestinian was invited to speak at a reception held by the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel in honor of IDAHO

    This confuses me.

    Palestinians would accept their own gays better if the situation between Israel and Palestinians changed?

    I believe the majority of Palestinians are Sunni Muslims, which is really where you're going to find little or no acceptance of Palestinian gays, Yes?

    I am an Israeli with Syrian Jewish background, not a Palestinian. I have to say the Palestinian guys are hot!! Why "religion" has to do with the Palestinians in this conversation we are having?
