Sorry to arrive at this party so late, but a couple of comments need to be addressed (and SDH keeps sending me emails saying he hasn't seen me lately).
SDH> You don't see Palestinian illegal settlements in Israel
20% of Israel's population is Arab. We don't consider them "illegal".
Unlike how Arabs view the presence of Jews.
SDH> You'll see many ruin Palestinian homes over there in Israel. None of those cities in Israel were founded by Israelis
A complete reversal of reality. During nearly 450 years of Arab occupation, only 2 cities were established (Ramle and Ramallah). All other "Arab cities" were previously Jewish towns: Most Christian readers are familiar with Jerusalem, Nazareth and Bethlehem, perhaps also other Biblical cities such as Beer Sheba, Megiddo and Hebron. Newer (i.e. only about 2,000 year old) Jewish cities include Caesarea and Tveriya (Tiberias).
Under foreign Arab occupation, many of these places had their names changed. For example, Jerusalem became Al Quds, Hebron became al-Khalil, Ashdod became Isdud, Tveriya became Tabariyyah.
SDH> I guess only Tel Aviv and several other modern cities in Israel were founded by Israeli like Petach Tikva (since 1878 ), Binyamina (since 1922), Zichron Yakov (since 1882), Gedera (since 1884), Nes Ziona (since 1883), Rishon Leziyon (since 1882), and Rehovot (since 1890)
And more than 250 kibbutzim, nearly 100 moshavim (a looser farming collective) and hundreds of other towns and suburbs (Netanya, established 1929; Ramat Hasharon, 1923; Eilat, 1951; Kfar Etzion, 1927, 1934, 1947, 1967, etc.)
You might ask, how come Kfar Etzion was established 4 times? Originally established by Jews from Yemen in 1927, it was destroyed during an Arab attack in 1929. The land was purchased, again, in 1934... only to be destroyed again in an Arab attack in 1936. Repurchased and rebuilt in 1943, it was destroyed during the Arab invasion of 1948 which ethnically cleansed all Jews from Judea, Samaria and Gaza as these were seized by Trans/Jordan and Egypt. After being liberated in 1967, survivors rebuilt Kfar Etzion and neighboring villages... and these are SDH's "illegal settlers".
Indeed, SDH's allegation that everywhere Jews live (except Tel Aviv) was previously an Arab village is absurd not only for historical reasons but also by mathematics. Consider that in the 19th century the pouplation of this area was estimated as low as 50,000 people. Mark Twain wrote in the 1860s how he could travel for a day without encountering a human being (and that in the northern valleys, not the southern deserts). Today between the river and the sea there are some 10,000,000 people.
The reality is that where Jewish pioneers settled, Arabs - drawn by the development - followed. Between the world wars, the Arab population grew most in areas of Jewish development. In Haifa (new port & industry), the Arab population grew 290%. In Jaffa (adjacent to Tel Aviv), 158%. In Jerusalem (more below) 131%. In contrast, in Nablus (the largest city in the "West Bank") only 42%, in Bethlehem 39%. In Jenin (closer to Jewish area which is why the town gained infamy as the departure point of suicide bombers), 78%. It's amazing that anyone would argue that Jewish population growth "displaced" Arabs.
There perhaps is no better example than so-called "Arab East Jerusalem". Jerusalem's Jewish population had been completely massacred (1 survivor) in the late 17th century, but by the 1820s had become a plurality and by the 1870s the majority. It was Jews in the 2nd half of the 19th century who began building homes outside of the old walled city, establishing eastern Jerusalem (e.g. Yemin Moshe, 1891; Neveh Yaakov, 1923).
Consider these pictures:
eastern Jerusalem, 1877.
Where are all the Arab homes for generations? They didn't exist.
(The one structure in the middle is an archeological site.)
Jewish Jerusalem, 1898. The two domed buildings are synagogues, destroyed by Arab invaders in 1948. The Jewish quarter was restored after 1967, but propagandists like SDH and KT consider them "settlers".
Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus, 1933
The land was purchased and not built on "stolen" let alone destroyed Arab homes.
The campus was seized by Arab invaders in 1948 and restored after 1967.
Now back to the gay stuff:
SDH> Homosexual is legal in the West Bank since 1951.
While it's true that British laws criminalizing homosexuality were taken off the books by Trans/Jordan (and the PA hasn't enacted any since 1994), there are no legal protections for gay people in this territory outside of areas (legally) administered by Israel.
Despite SDH's intentional misrepresentation, as we've discussed before, even Arab groups catering to gay people have their offices located in... Israel. There is an established history over recent decades of gay people in areas of the disputed territories not under Israeli rule to flee to Israel.
SDH> Lesbian is legal in Gaza
Again the same twisting. Absence of a law against something is far different in this part of the world than laws protecting gays/lesbians. Any woman in Gaza found to be a lesbian would likely be killed by her own family in an "honor killing". (Hint: liquor stores and Christian book stores have been burnt down in Gaza.)
SDH> There is no LGBT protection law in the Palestinian territories because Palestine is not a country yet and Palestinians have corrupted government control by Israel.
Pure propaganda BS. The PA has enacted many laws (e.g. forbidding Jews to purchase land), so there is no reason it couldn't pass laws protecting the rights of gay people - were this on the agenda. It's not.
Given that Israel has some of the most liberal laws protecting homosexuals, one would think that if the PA was under Israeli "control" that it would have already passed laws recognizing gay rights.
SDH> BOTH sides religious nuts are hurting gay people there, not just religious Palestinian people.
A false equivalence. It's true that some orthodox Jews, like the nut in this story, oppose the "gay agenda". Much as fudamentalist Christians do in the USA. But there is no comparison between the situation gay people enjoy in Israel (complete legal protection and freedom, including state recognized common law marriage) and the repressive, even deadly, state of affairs in the PA territories.
