    Anti-Israel protestors stormed Friday’s gay rights Creating Change Conference at the Chicago Hilton, hosted by the National LGBTQ Task Force, forcing the cancellation of an event hosted by A Wider Bridge, an organization that advocates growing the relationship between the “LGBTQ communities of North America and Israel.”

    Reportedly chanting “no justice, no peace,” protesters displayed signs equating the Jewish state with apartheid and Zionism with racism, targeting a reception featuring Israeli LGBT rights activists Sarah Kala-Meir and Tom Canning of the Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance, an Israeli LGBT advocacy group.

    We're these protestors identified? I read the article, and the whole situation was very confusing. It seems the goals in creating a disruption were incoherent and illogical.

    http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/2016/01/25/creating_change_protest_of_a_wider_bridge_was_anti_semitic.html

    You might not expect a group of people defined, in part, by their minority status and history of oppression to direct irrational ire toward Jews. But there is no other way to describe the sad story of this year’s Creating Change conference, an annual gathering sponsored by the National LGBTQ Task Force. Creating Change brings together dozens of LGBTQ groups, from fringe to mainstream, at one bustling summit to compare notes and debate strategy. This year, the conference was scheduled to include a presentation by A Wider Bridge, a group that connects LGBTQ Jews in America with the Israeli LGBTQ community, featuring speakers from the Jerusalem Open House for Pride and Tolerance, an LGBTQ community center. Then, shortly before the conference began, the Task Force abruptly canceled the reception. It had bowed to pressure from groups like the Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity, which demanded that the conference’s organizers “reject Zionism” and “the forces of oppression and occupation” by kicking out A Wider Bridge.


    After much outcry, especially among LGBTQ Jews, the Task Force reinstated the event. In response, a group of about 200 protesters marched through the conference on Friday and crashed the reception, holding signs that read “Cancel Pinkwashing” and “Zionism Sucks.” The speakers from Jerusalem Open House, who had just taken the stage, were quickly hustled out. Their presentation was canceled. The protesters won.

    It is entirely reasonable to criticize Israel’s treatment of Palestinians. The country’s brutal occupation of the West Bank is a human rights catastrophe, and the continued legal discrimination toward Palestinian citizens of Israel makes a mockery of equal justice. Israel’s periodic ruination of Gaza, which carries with it a shockingly high civilian death toll, is appalling. These issues are fair game at any conference that purports to support international social justice.


    But A Wider Bridge and the Jerusalem Open House community center do not support the subjugation of Palestinians. In fact, neither group is especially engaged in the Israel-Palestine debate. Both focus on bringing equal rights to LGBTQ people in Israel and fostering connections between LGBTQ communities in Israel and America so they can share strategies.

    The mere existence of a connection to Israel, however, was apparently too much for the 200 protesters at Creating Change. They angrily accused A Wider Bridge of participating in “pinkwashing.” According to pinkwashing theorists, Israel’s effort to grant civil rights to LGBTQ people is really just an insidious attempt to cause a distraction from its human rights violations elsewhere. Israel may protect LGBTQ people from job discrimination and allow them to serve openly in the army, jointly adopt children, and recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere—but, this theory goes, these triumphs are just a ruse. In reality, Israel is tossing scraps to the LGBTQ community, then loudly talking up its tolerance to drown out the sound of Palestinian suffering.

    The concept of pinkwashing is extraordinarily insulting. It presumes that the Israeli government has no interest in promoting LGBTQ rights except to help mask its oppression of other groups. This presumption is totally unique to Israel. Nobody thought that France was attempting to distract from its terrible mistreatment of Roma immigrants when it legalized same-sex marriage. Nobody thought that South Africa was diverting attention from the painful, enduring remnants of apartheid when it gained marriage equality. Yet many LGBTQ activists freely impute to Israel a malign motive in expanding rights to sexual minorities.

    I will not change any minds about the validity of pinkwashing charges. Nor am I interested in mounting a general defense of Israel, whose violence toward Palestine is increasingly indefensible. Rather, I would like to ask why, exactly, 200 protesters saw fit to punish A Wider Bridge and the Jerusalem Open House for the sins of a country to which they are connected. Plenty of groups at Creating Change are based in states with deeply unjust laws and police practices. Plenty of participants come from countries that are far more repressive than Israel. But the protesters did not single out any of these people. Instead, they stormed a reception featuring Israeli speakers, sponsored by an Israeli-American advocacy group. In other words, they stormed a reception for a bunch of Jews.

    That article from slate, I cannot agree with that. Anti-semitic? Really?
    What about that mall in Minneapolis, bridge in San Francisco, protesting at airport, innocent students at Dartmouth College who was just there to study at library? Harassing students at Columbia University dorms? Though I really really despise the noise, I can understand their voice.
    They're protesters. Of all people, slate, a very liberal media, should know what that means.
    I don't wanna see the video. I don't think i can stomach it.
    About the argument from both sides, to discuss it would feel like having a vertigo. It's a painful cycle. It's been decades. Though of course I can see it's an important subject. very serious subject.
    At the end, it just shows that writer at slate is on one side, IMO, which is understandable, because a lot of people are too.
    Or maybe not, but I really don't like that anti-Semitic accusation. Doesn't matter that the writer acknowledge the poor condition of Palestinians at first, it still doesn't sugarcoat the accusation at the end.

    Sam27 said"hey hey, ho ho, occupation got to go!"
    ^ love that - thumb up

    That is like pro-gay Palestinians v.s. pro-gay Zionists. There are some gay Jews protest with them against Israel's policies too. I am not taking sides. I believe both sides are the problem.




    This is the first we have seen of its kind, not since ACT UP anyway, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACT_UP

    But a divided gay v gay? What pisses me off is the "Christian v Islam" religious war (crusades) that has been resurrected by the 'underground' is affecting everyone, some point to Zionism itself (those crazy ass, sociopathic occultist, the Christians).

    We see here in the US, the right wing Christian juggernaut and their perceived attacks against Christianity, lead by homosexuality, of course. The US Christians align themselves with Zion, like it must protect, 'the book of the dead' (Army Of Darkness). What is really going to make things worse, in Zionism, is if they chose to move Israel's capitol from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Believe me, the US crazy Christians want the same thing, which combines their forces against Muslim territory

    Maybe it will be the LGBTQI's, on both sides, that will finally free Palestine? Whats even more interesting, the LGBTQI's within Zionism are more accepted than their religious counterparts, Christianity or Islam.

    This is how I see it, the Christianity v Islam war was brought back by the Zionists. Why? Out of Chaos comes Order?
    My previous point, religion in general, with its power and control, just continues to screw the world icon_rolleyes.gif


    They just annoy everyone with their occultist control issues icon_rolleyes.gif

    Pinkwashing in reference to Israel absolutely is anti-Semitic. It is a slimy way to say that because there is a problem in one realm of society that therefore there is no benefit to any of that society. Fuck you.

    The Jewish state denounced & stopped enforcing the British buggery mandate back in the 60s and by the 80s had officially legalized same sex relations though not yet marriage. Gay Rights isn't some new media travel campaign. This is a struggle by a gay segment of a country's population. And their heroes in their fight for equal rights are no less honorable than our own. That someone would diminish for their own political gain the Israeli gay struggle for equal rights is abominable. That they might be gay themselves? Disgusting!

    This is not the type of protest to produce change. This is the type of protest that merely pisses people off. This is #blacklivesmatter disruption. How much of that do you still see today? What's wrong with it? It's lighting your own house on fire to send a smoke signal to the fire station that your house is on fire.

    And that's how establishment will see it. And that's why it won't change establishment. You might notice that whitebread world mows it's lawn. All but whitetrash world brings its garbage cans in from the curb right after pick up. Whitebread world, where the world seeks inroads, is not lighting their cars on fire, is not smashing the windows of their own convenience stores.

    And this is nothing but that. If you are gay and Muslim. You don't help your cause by hurting Jewish gay.

    You want to help yourselves? You want peace between people? Try dinner, a movie, and hot sex us instead.

    Make love, not war.

    The Creating Change Protest Was Pure Anti-Semitism
    http://www.out.com/2016/1/27/op-ed-creating-change-protest-was-pure-anti-semitism

    BY MICHAEL LUCAS
    WED, 2016-01-27 16:27

    It could have been a scene from the early days of Nazi Germany: a raucous mob surrounding a gathering of Jews, chanting vicious slogans, screaming epithets, all the while their faces distorted by a hatred that is as irrational as it is stunning.

    But this was not 1930s Berlin; it was the Hilton Chicago hotel just last week. Perhaps the so-called “progressive” liberal Jews and Israelis at the LGBT rights conference there thought that their prior public criticism of Israel would protect themselves from attack—a kind of verbal “Iron Dome” similar to Israel’s ingenious missile defense system.

    They were sadly mistaken. The 200 thugs who showed up Friday at a Jewish reception were not interested in dialogue. They comprised an enraged gang filled with Jew-hatred, bent on intimidating and silencing LGBT Jews who have any connection to the state of Israel. And the sponsor of the “Creating Change Conference,” the National LGBTQ Task Force, knew full well the potential for violence, and did absolutely nothing to safeguard the lives of more than 100 participants at the reception.

    The back-story is known to those who’ve been following the saga. One of the events at the 28th annual conference was a reception created by the Jewish LGBT group known as “A Wider Bridge.” It was to feature leaders of “Jerusalem Open House,” a left-wing organization whose then-leader, during the 2014 war in Gaza, called on Israeli soldiers to disobey their orders.

    Despite those leftist bona fides, anti-Semitic radicals convinced the Task Force to cancel the event. The ensuing uproar over that decision prompted Task Force executive director Rea Carey to apologize for and reverse the cancellation.

    But that humiliating debacle was soon overshadowed by the assault that took place against those at the Wider Bridge reception. As wild-eyed as they were ignorant, those in the horde cheered in support of one leader of the attack who yelled “We’re going to challenge these Zionist racist motherfuckers!”

    They blocked those who wanted to attend the reception from entering, and held prisoner those already inside the conference room. Several entered the room and commandeered the stage.

    Despite that, A Wider Bridge’s director of programs, Tyler Gregory, courageously tried to speak about the links between Israel’s LGBT community and those around the world. As can be seen near the end of this video, however, he was shouted down by the hysterical screaming of an anti-Israel hater.

    As that was taking place inside the room, in the hallway there were the usual cries of “End the occupation!” which in the twisted belief of the extreme left is the source of all evil in the Middle East, if not the world. There was a huge banner and smaller signs reading “Cancel Pinkwashing,” the despicable, discredited and deeply moronic theory that Israel’s stellar record on LGBT rights is simply a smokescreen to cover its treatment of Palestinians. And there were charges of Israeli “apartheid” from those who are clueless about what apartheid really means, and who don’t understand what an insult that is to the South African blacks who truly suffered under that system.

    It must be pointed out here that while criticism of Israeli government policies can be legitimate, the extreme left has crossed the line into anti-Semitism, a term from the 1800s that simply means hatred of Jews. The imbeciles yelling in the hallway of that Chicago hotel did not care that the leftist Jerusalem Open House works to protect Palestinian gays, because they don’t really care about the Palestinians. Their entire obsession is with the only Jewish country in the world, Israel, and their desire to see the Jewish state and its inhabitants destroyed.

    Israel is the only country in the region where gay people live openly, equally, with all the rights and protections of an enlightened society. Yet this is the country these radicals focus on. Have they ever protested outside the embassy of Saudi Arabia, where homosexuality is outlawed and gays are flogged, imprisoned, and executed? Have they organized a demonstration outside the embassy of Iran, where gays are hanged for the crime of “consensual sodomy”? Did they show up to decry Russia’s new anti-gay law in 2013? Do they attempt to derail events connected to countries that oppress gays?

    Of course not. They are preoccupied with Israel and Israel alone. Why is that? Why are those brutal regimes, the true offenders, ignored by these extremists? The answer is clear. Throughout the course of history, Jews have been demonized, boycotted, and murdered. Now, Israel is the Jew among nations, subject to the same kind of baseless hatred, lies and mistreatment that we have seen for centuries. Coincidence? I think not.

    The bullying, verbal abuse and threats aimed at those participating in the Jewish reception in Chicago (described by Bridge executive director Arthur Slepian as a “firestorm of hate”) was, however, just half of that night’s disgrace. The other half was the National LGBTQ Task Force’s utter abandonment of the Jews who were attending its conference.

    In a press release explaining why the Task Force was reversing its initial decision to cancel the Jewish event, executive director Rea Carey wrote, “We want to make it quite clear that the Creating Change Conference will always be a safe space for inclusion and dialogue for people with often widely different views.”

    The Wider Bridge event at the conference, in reality, turned into exactly the opposite: a dangerous and intimidating space in which no dialogue was possible, a moment in which Jews, Israelis, and supporters of Israel were excluded from the wider community.

    The responsibility for this outrageous failure lies squarely with the Task Force, which knew exactly where this was heading. In fact, in her statement, Carey wrote “I have been concerned about the intense escalation that has occurred over the last couple of days and the threats towards people who hold a range of views.” In other words, she knew this could get of hand, yet did nothing.

    In my opinion, there is only one logical explanation for the Task Force’s inaction in relation to providing safety and security for the Jewish group, and that is the resentment and anger felt by its leadership over the events of the previous days. I believe there was a conscious decision to allow this mob of so-called “protestors” to shut down the Bridge event, and to let the Jewish participants and their allies fend for themselves.

    This was, essentially, a punishment by the Task Force for the embarrassment of having to reverse its decision about the Bridge reception. The only reason the chaos did not culminate in physical violence was the admirable restraint on the part of A Wider Bridge and its supporters, who allowed their event to be ruined in order to protect those in attendance.

    This was not simply a mistake by the Task Force leaders, and they must be held accountable for this obscene, shameful and inexcusable fiasco.

    But now back to the topic. Rather than ad hominems about Lucas, let's review what he wrote:

    || while criticism of Israeli government policies can be legitimate, the extreme left has crossed the line into anti-Semitism, a term from the 1800s that simply means hatred of Jews. The imbeciles yelling in the hallway of that Chicago hotel did not care that the leftist Jerusalem Open House works to protect Palestinian gays, because they don’t really care about the Palestinians.

    || Israel is the only country in the region where gay people live openly, equally, with all the rights and protections of an enlightened society. Yet this is the country these radicals focus on.

Have they organized a demonstration outside the embassy of Iran, where gays are hanged for the crime of “consensual sodomy”? Did they show up to decry Russia’s new anti-gay law in 2013? Do they attempt to derail events connected to countries that oppress gays?

    That's really the crux of the issue. Here in the Detroit area there is a large Arab community and with it a gay Arab group. Can you imagine someone crashing their event (at Creating Change or anywhere), screaming and threatening them? (And this comparison isn't even fair because while many Arab regimes torture and execute gays - including Hamas and the PA, this is not part of a larger and complicated conflict with many different sides.)

    || Of course not. They are preoccupied with Israel and Israel alone. Why is that? Why are those brutal regimes, the true offenders, ignored by these extremists? The answer is clear.

    Can anyone imagine a seminar put on by Al Gamea (the gay Arab group in Detroit) being bashed and its membership harassed and threatened at an LGBT conference because Saudi Arabia, Hamas and ISIS execute gays?

    This comparison to recent events isn't even analogous because Arab regimes don't torture and execute gays as one small element of a larger and complicated conflict with many different facets. What's next, disrupt all Americans - the entire conference - because of Guantanamo bay?
