How Can Gay Activists Boycott the Jewish State?
Algemeiner ^ | February 20, 2012

Posted on 02/20/2012 4:29:16 PM PST by SJackson

Israel is the sole democracy in the Middle East, a champion of gay rights, and a place where tens of thousands march in an annual gay pride parade. As the Mayor of Tel Aviv recently said, “We are trying to create a model for openness, pluralism, tolerance – live and let live.” For homosexuals, Israel is surely one of the most open places in the world.

Contrast that with Israel’s neighbors, where homosexuals can be hanged; it’s simply amazing that this week, leading gay activists declared their support for a boycott of Israel. After Qatar was awarded the 2022 Football World Cup, Sepp Blatter, president of the sport’s governing body, said that gays should “refrain from sexual activity” if they go to Qatar because homosexuality is illegal in the Emirate. And of course, as we all know from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, there are no gays in Iran.

It seems that Jew-haters will always find a reason to hate the Jewish state, and will use something asinine to mask that hatred. Peter Tatchell, a leading gay activist, signed a letter this week criticizing Israel for “pinkwashing,” trying to use the acceptance of LGBTs (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community) as a “smokescreen” of supposed human rights violations of the Palestinians. In a recent letter to the media, activists from the Gay Liberation Front, Stop Clause 28, and others, stated support for the Palestinian “boycott, divestment and sanctions” campaign against Israel. It added that it is “ironic” that Israel, “in an attempt to gain a veneer of respectability by promoting itself as a liberal,” has grown tolerant towards gay people while the “oppressive regime routinely violates human rights.” So, Israel, the sole country in the Middle East which supports gay rights, is also boycotted by the gay activist community.

One wonders what these gay rights activists can possibly know about these supposed human rights violations and the on-the-ground situation in Gaza or the West Bank. Surely, they haven’t traveled or spent time there, because they would know that they wouldn’t be safe with the Hamas/Palestinian government. Of course, they haven’t spoken out about the violence Jews face in these regions. One wonders what justification Tachtell and other gay activists can have to boycott Israel, their strongest supporter in the Middle East. Tachtell’s boycott started a few months earlier when he criticized the IGLYO – the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Lesbian Youth and Student Organization for accepting an invitation from its Israeli chapter to hold its general assembly in Tel Aviv. He was among the first to criticize IGLYO for agreeing to a conference in Israel and said that he “fears that Israel may not be accessible to delegations from Arab countries.” They neglect the fact that Arabs can visit Israel, unlike Jews that seek to visit Arab countries.

Tachtell was successful in having the meeting moved from Israel, despite the fact that there is not a single member from the Arab world on the general assembly of this organization (for obvious reasons). Just as I wonder where the flotilla for peace to Syria is, so too am I amazed as gays and others pretend there’s a reason for hating Israel other than anti-Semitism. The heroic defender of human rights, Martin Luther King said it right when he said, “Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism.”

Because they hate Judeo-Christianity with a passion for telling homosexuals how to live and believe that they can try and destroy what they hat, because they won’t live to see the reults of their actions and whatever happens whenthey are dead, they don’t have to concern themselves with it.

How can I believe that Israel would even CARE if they did?

Hatred of the Jews and Israel is a sign of the spirit of the Anti-Christ active in the world.

Suggest these folks buy a back-pack and visit the youth hostels in Egypt, Lebanon, and Syria. Then, report their findings....if they live through the experience.

I agree, these idiots don’t have a clue as to how good they really have it, compared to how they would have it just about anywhere else in the world.

But their self-indulgent selfishness won’t let them see it for what it is.

Most faggies are liberals.

Most liberals are pro-Pali and anti-Israel.

Most faggies and most liberals hate Judeo-Christian values and moral laws.

Too easy.

It’s not just a “gay” thing.

This is one more particular instance of the left being a suicide cult.

LOL, so this fairy doesn’t care for the only country in the region where his life wouldn’t be in danger? Amusing.

I guess we should commend him for sticking to his far left insane views despite the fact that Hamas would beat him to death if he set foot in the Gaza strip, that’s commitment!

Nah...

We just WARN them about what happens when they are DEAD!!!


Genesis 13:13
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and
their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men
from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them
."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.

 

Psalms 12:8      The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Ain't this just FABULOUS??      More?

Isaiah 3:9   The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

2 Peter 2:13b  Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


 

 

Ezekiel 16:49-50
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.



2 Peter 2

 1.  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
 2.  Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
 3.  In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
 4.  For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell,  putting them into gloomy dungeons  to be held for judgment;
 5.  if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
 6.  if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
 7.  and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
 8.  (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
 9.  if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
 10.  This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature  and despise authority.   Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
 11.  yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
 12.  But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
 13.  They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done.
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.



But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

 9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
     Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

 


If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...

Oh please Br'er Bear and Br'er Fox, don't throw me in that briar patch.

So queers threatening to boycott Israel.....That's like being rejected by a fat chick; sure you feel bad about the rejection in the short term, but that's a lot of weight off your shoulders in the long run.

Homosexual radicals are full of anger and hatred—but most of all a self-loathing.

Their lifestyle choice has always been considered extremely evil—because it reduces man to a base animal-—it is actually tied to the worship of Satan—Baal.

The lowest, basest, most vile act, a human being can do, is put their sex organs which is the most creative force in man— in the anal cavity or allow others to put foreign objects in body cavities...it is stupid and sick—and comes right out of the sick mind of de Sade.

No sane government would make laws elevating such an evil act to a position of a “right”. Just Law has to be Moral Law-—dictates of Natural Law which states the design of man is to do one’s DUTY (reason for all social contracts in the first place) to raise one’s own offspring.

It defies reason. It destroys the very rationality of man and teaches children a worldview that is anathema to the prinicples of our very Constitution—Rights from God (not creepy Barney Frank who was probably sodomized as a boy like those little boys in Afghanistan.) Child abuse twists and destroys the sexual identity of children.

Promoting that lifestyle is promoting child abuse.
