OUTREACH TO ARAB LESBIAN GAY BISEXUAL TRANSGENDER (LGBT) COMMUNITIES
The U.S. Embassy is offering a one-time grant to advance the human rights of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) persons in Arab communities in Israel. The grant aims to increase the capacity of a civil society group to conduct advocacy, as well as monitor and document anti-gay violence targeting LGBT persons living in predominantly Arab communities.
Within one year of receiving the grant, the grantee should demonstrate an increase in the number and effectiveness of advocacy and monitoring activities in Arab communities. The aim is to reduce the stigma of LGBT in those communities and to improve the Arab LGBT communitys understanding of their rights in Israel. The grantee need not change its current policy but it should be able to demonstrate it was able to increase awareness and understanding of resources available to Arab LGBT and strengthen its ability to document and analyze anti-gay violence targeting Arab LGBT.
The grantee should look to innovative uses of technology appropriate for Arab communities to engage LGBT persons and enable them to network with one another, share experiences and information, and develop their capacity for grassroots organization. The grantee should provide opportunities for Arab LGBT to meet and discuss issues and produce ideas to help the LGBT community living in Arab communities.
Envisioned projects should be designed with the end goal of providing new resources to Arab LGBT and empowering them to utilize resources available inside and outside of the community.
The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv expects to visit the grantee prior to the start of the project to establish specific baselines and targets. The grantee agrees to provide, at a minimum, monthly updates on expenditures, progress, and milestones reached.
The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv will monitor the grant. No resources aside from the grant itself would be available from the Embassy.
. The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv will not fund for-profit projects. . The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv will not fund participation in fundraising. . The budget must include category-level details. For example, if the project costs include printing reading materials to promote the project, the budget must show the cost per unit (e.g., 25 flyers at $10 each = $250).

The closing date for the application is September 24, 2012. We plan to notify the grantee by October 10, 2012. Were looking for competitive bids that should not exceed $25,000. For application submission and further information, please contact Jill Barwig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Insanity has no bounds.
We sure know how to impress the Muslims!
But what about the goats? They have rights, too!
LGBT grants to Arabs living in Israel.
But - no LGBT grants to Arabs living in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, or Egypt?
Gosh, I wonder why?
Will Mitt Romney speak against this?
Will he stop it?
It’s just a really weird feeling to have my US embassy supporting, encouraging in the Holy Land what God once said is an abomination in the Holy Land.
Spending money on Arab poofters like there are no real problems in the world to help solve.
Anyone that feels the need to be open with their perversions over there is suicidal.
does this mean we get to burn flags and riot at our embassy?
I have this theory - American citizen gays will reach out to foreign gays - offer marriage as a way to secure American citizenship and immediately divorce them when citizenship is secured, repeating the same scenario - endlessly until America has most of the gays in the world.
Just a theory, but with gay marriage coming on strong can something like this actually happen?
To homosexuals in Israel????? What about outreach to homosexuals where it matters — in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia where they kill gays simply for being gay? Our system is completely screwed up.
And some wonder WHY they hate us? I understand a good man carried the cross into several Islamic countries and was not molested. But such an immoral outreach rightly ought offend the Muslim.Which is not to ignore what they allow in the name of their bloody god Allah-be done to slaves to convert them to Islam? But for the USA to be in Israel offering such ought rightly offend them and put both Israel and the US at risk.
All I can say, WTF ! What a waste of money and we are paying for the privilege of buy more hatred towards us ! I would prefer to be hated for doing what is right, not what is wrong !
Romney will nuance this turkey of an expenditure, if he musters up the courage to address it, EVER.
It think it entirely possible a President Romney will communicate all hard things
with ads. Milquetoast always fires at the target through surrogate cash-ads, so he can be seen as being so much more polite.
Just more destruction of basic human values by the lets-vite-against-God-and-put-the-Muslim-terrorists-_ in -power D party of BHO. Not even all of Hollywood could make a movie as sick and dangerous as the clique that has usurped control of the D party. ( You can bet any of out tax money given to such people will come back against us as bullets or bombs.)
Is it any wonder the US is becoming the laughing stock of the world?
This country has fallen so far in the 11 years since 9/11 I don’t see why any God-fearing person would assume God is “on our side”, even against such an enemy as Muslims.
I am fully convinced that God has written Ichabod on the portals of the United States of America.
>>But - no LGBT grants to Arabs living in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, or Egypt?
Bears repeating. Do you have an answer, Mr. President?
