Have you heard of the term "pinkwashing?" Not many have. But you can now add it to your list of acceptable words for your next Scrabble game. It's a word concocted by anti-Israel Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Queer (LGBTQ) forces as the promotion of gay friendliness on the part of Israel in an attempt to downplay aspects of their other policies that are considered negative, which to them is the terrorizing of and oppression of Palestinians. In other words, these Jew hating radicals feel that Israel is playing up to the gay community by accepting them as regular people and catering to their needs in order to cover up its terrorist side. Jew haters, straight or gay, know no bounds
At a recent gay rights Creating Change Conference at the Chicago Hilton, hosted by the national LBGTQ Task Force, racist hooligans of Arabs, Muslims and Latinos joined by Black Lives Matter thugs crashed the meeting shutting down a talk that tried to show the community the acceptance by Israel of its gay and lesbian community. Chanting the Al Sharpton war cry, "No justice, no peace," protesters displayed signs equating the Jewish state with apartheid and Zionism with racism and physically threatening two speakers of an Israeli LGBT advocacy group. A video taken of this near riot showed Jews trying to leave the area while being physically stopped by protesters shouting, "Occupy, Occupy!" and "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!"
There are quite a few gay bars in Palestine, Texas, that is but none are to be found in the Palestine territories where the penalties for being homosexual range from massive beatings, hanging, crucifixion, beheading or just plain being stoned to death. While Tel Aviv garnered the distinction by American Airlines and gaycities.com as the world's best gay city and its Shenkin Street loaded with gay bars and entertainment, "bustling" Palestinian cities such as Gaza City and Ramallah only welcome gays into their prisons and their heads placed on chopping blocks. No gay pride parades in these territories ruled by Hamas and Fatah. Evidently, those gay Americans who stand for Palestinian rights seem to overlook the reality that the rights of their gay brothers and sisters in that dictatorial area are zilch. And they need not bother to check with their travel agents to book LGBTQ events under the red, green, white and black flag of Mahmoud Abbas and his crowd.
So what is it that compels those gays who are welcomed, accepted and coddled by Israel to work toward its destruction? Don't these radical gays have knowledge of the hatred against them spouted out by the Koran and every single Muslim nation worldwide? Hundreds of gay Palestinians have run out of Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt to seek refuge in Israel. So why this hatred by gays against Israel?
Here is the inscrutable, unfathomable answer given by the Gay Liberation Network:
"For several years the Israeli government has attempted to use propaganda about the freedoms some LBGTQ's in that country have as a cover for their increasingly brutal rule over Palestinians, a process known as "pinkwashing." Because of the brutal racism of the country, mimicking south Africa under apartheid - one set of laws for Jews, another for Palestinians - most Palestinian LBGTQs don't enjoy those freedoms. Instead, they endure the anti-Palestinian racism meted out on a daily basis to gay and non-gay alike."
