IDF embraces Pride Month
Ynet ^ | June 12, 2012 | Itamar Eichner

Posted on 06/12/2012 10:48:03 AM PDT by pavlova

Be proud – in uniform: A recent photo posted on the Israeli military's international Facebook page is causing a positive cyber-stir, as it aims to express the army's support for gay soldiers, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Tuesday.

The photo, which depicts an Artillery soldier and a Givati soldier holding hands, carries the caption: "It's Pride Month. Did you know that the IDF treats all of its soldiers equally?"

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that the photo was taken as part of Israel's gay and lesbian community's Pride Month events, with the full cooperation of the featured couple.

Make no mistake, the IDF’s embracing of Gay Pride is the direct result of Obama forcing gays on the US Military and his repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Furthermore, you can bet as a fact that Obama has dictated to the Israelis that they must let the Sodomites openly serve in the IDF.

Obama’s goal is not to have Gay Pride in the IDF, but it is instead to infect the IDF with Queers so that when Israel is attacked my Muslim Armies, that the IDF will collapse due to all the Sodomites in their ranks.

The Israelis will be driven to the sea while the Sodomites in the IDF are all buggering each other.

This is exactly what Israel should be concentrating on right now. Cause, you know, they don’t have other problems.

How can a solider fire a weapon at an invading army when he is holding some other Sodomite's hand and in his other hand is a phone and he talking to a gay wedding planner about flower arrangements?

The IDF has allowed openly homosexuals to serve since 1993. Can’t blame that on Obama.

So Israel’s embracing this nonsense too.

This is very troubling.

When ideologies compete, those with a stronger concept of “divine” inspiration usually prevail, if even over the long term. For all its faults Islam is so driven.

The West’s seeming preoccupation with diverging social and societal divisions - while Islam advances right under our very noses, and often even despite a sense of growing alarm - may well lead to a thousand years of darkness for the human race.

“The IDF has allowed openly homosexuals to serve since 1993.”

I doubt that is true as Israel has won all of their military engagements since 1993 and that would not have been possible if the IDF was infected with Sodomites.

Letting homosexuals in the IDF or any military is an abomination, but let's at least have our facts correct so our side doesn't look ignorant. The IDF has allowed homo soldiers since 1983, back when Obama was still a college student.

The sodomites will have their day but will be cut off from their people...

1 Kings 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.

Deuteronomy 25:16 For ALL (even present day Israelis) that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the LORD thy God.

Also it's so interesting that the sodomites use the words 'Gay Pride' in their celebrations of abominations. Isn't that why God threw Lucifer out of heaven? Because of his pride. There is truly nothing new under the sun.

Sodomites have been around since the beginning. Remember what happened to those wicked cities of old. Sodomy was rampant then. It is rampant now. What happened then will happen now. God is not mocked. That Genesis story is a shadow of things to come.

The Lord always has a remnant of those that are truly his. Doesn't matter what culture or country they come from. But those that believe in Him and obey His word.

“In 1983, the IDF permitted homosexuals to serve, but banned them from intelligence and top-secret positions. A decade later, Professor Uzi Even, an IDF reserves officer and chairman of Tel Aviv University’s Chemistry Department revealed that his rank had been revoked and that he had been barred from researching sensitive topics in military intelligence, solely because of his sexual identity. His testimony to the Knesset in 1993 raised a political storm, forcing the IDF to remove such restrictions against gays.”

Why would gay Israelis give a f*** about the police raid on a mob run speakeasy in NYC that led to the "Stonewall riots"?

International drama queens?

Israel a model on gays in the military
Oct. 22, 2010
By Dennis Coday

JERUSALEM — Israel, like the United States, is a largely secular society with deep religious roots. And Israel, like the United States, is home to vocal religious conservatives who frown on homosexuality.

But Israel, unlike the United States, has allowed gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military for 17 years. In fact, they are required to.

Who is more screwed? The U.S., Great Britain, or Israel? It’s hard to decide...

It IS difficult to make that determination, but it is apparent that one of the countries leads in several aspects of the progressivist agenda: Secularism and Rejection of Judeo-(& Christian) Heritage (G.B.), Political Correctness (G.B.), Adoption of Multi-Culturalism (G.B. -- close runners-up to U.S. and Israel).

I am firm in my conviction that only relatively small numbers of people in each country are counted among God's chosen. I would not necessarily include most members of the IDF (or British or US armed forces in that).

Sorry, but I think you guys have fallen victim to the leftist media who want you to believe in the Secular fantasy that a strong military can function and actually win wars with an Army of Sodomites.

If that were the case with the IDF for 20 years, the Israelis would not have been winning wars.

just how are you going to explain all that to your buddies at the bingo parlor?

“The Israelis will be driven to the sea while the Sodomites in the IDF are all buggering each other.”

Won’t happen.

The real problem arises when some IDF soldiers are attacked and the commanding officer yells “Shoot the C*ck S*ckers!”

He meant the attackers, not the “Heblews” in his unit.

Oops!

I enjoy 0bama-bashing as much as the next guy here, but Israel has allowed openly homosexual soldiers to serve for almost 20 years now.

Not feelings, but just the fact that an Army of Sodomites could not protect a nation.

And we are talking about the Israeli Army.

What wars has Israel been involved with in the last 20 years? I can only think of the deal Lebanon 4-5 years ago right off the bat.

It’s not worth arguing - He’s a parody of the “conservative” position, and likely doesn’t believe half the stuff he writes on here anyway. Surprised people haven’t caught on to his schtick.

. My gut feeling is he is possibly gay and is using a "back door" argument(no pun intended) to further the homo agenda.

His comment: "if that were the case with the IDF for 20 years, the Israelis would not have been winning wars. to say "see it does not matter they had homos in their ranks they have done ok the last 20 years"

.He is just twisting the argument...

That's my guess. These sorts of absurd/devil's-advocate/reverse psychology kind of posts go beyond just "gay" topics. They're all over the place.
