Speaking of suicidal idiots, I happened to recall this item from last year

Madrid gay pride march bans Israelis over Gaza flotilla raids

A delegation of gay residents of Tel Aviv has been banned from joining a gay pride march in Madrid because authorities in the Israeli city have not condemned the recent attack on the Gaza flotilla.

“After what has happened, and as human rights campaigners, it seemed barbaric to us to have them taking part,” explained Antonio Poveda, of Spain‘s Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transexuals and Bisexuals. “We don’t just defend out own little patch.”

I wonder if these people ever realized what would happen to them if they tried organizing a gay pride march anywhere in the Middle East outside of Israel. I suspect that their lifespan would be measured in minutes.

    Hmm, a delegation, one, not all of Israel. Hard to have a parade if you had to import all of the people from Spain, don’t you think? So apparently there were tons and tons of people attending this pride parade. They clearly had enough participants so they could exclude Israel’s version of the log cabin republican. There are quite a few Jews who weren’t down with the flotilla raid. In fact Israel is becoming chocked full of young, not so hard-line Jews who don’t look kindly on the oppressive and draconian treatment of Palestinians by their grandparents and parents.

    Well, see the thing is, that Israel is the only country in the Middle East that respects human rights enough to allow a gay pride parade. Try holding one in downtown Cairo, or Damascus, or Amman or anywhere else in the region and see what happens These people were idiots for not recognizing that fact and condemning the only decent country in the area for alleged human rights abuses

    Dude how could they be condemning a country if u are holding a parade there? They were condemn a group who supported a murdering unit. Also the actions of one brazen unit of the Israeli military do not represent the ‘will’ of the country. To condemn that attack has no more to do with Israel’s policies than a rouge unit of US soldiers gunning down civies has with US policy. They condemned a deplorable incident not the freaking country. Why can’t u get that?

    I think you are missing my point. This group of homosexuals are criticizing the one country in the Middle East that actually allows homosexuals to stay alive and they fell all moral and superior for doing so. If the sort Muslim radicals who run things in much of the middle east ever ended up in power in Spain, and this might happen considering immigraton and birth rates, these people wouldn’t fare so well. By announcing their support of the Palestians, they are supporting the very people who would kill them for the crime of being gay.

    They were excluding Israeli homosexuals from joining their parade.
    As the spokesperson for the city of Tel Aviv said,”I cannot recall anyone asking the Tel Aviv city hall to either support or condemn in this case. That is not their job. I also don’t recall Madrid’s gay organisations condemning any of the Palestinian terrorist attacks on cafes or buses”.
    The organizers of the parade did not seem to have a problem with attacks on Israelis. They did have a problem with Israel seeking to prevent attacks on their people by keeping supplies out of the hands of terrorists.
    And again, these people they support, would not hesitate to kill or “cure” them.

    how could there possibly have been a parade If they banned all isreali homosexuals? They banned one douche bag group not every freakig isreali gay. How could the parade have happened a mass exodus from Spain to ISREAL?

    Did you read the article I linked to? The parade was held in Spain. They had homosexuals from all over the world. They banned a group of Israeli gays from taking part because of their opposition to Israeli policies. There were plenty of homosexuals from all over the world who took part in that parade.
    My whole point was that if the organizers of that parade had wanted to hold it in Israel, it would have been permitted. If they had wanted to hold it in Egypt or Syria, or Saudi Arabia, it would not have been permitted and if they had tried to hold such a march, it is likely that they would have been killed.
    You seem to have a problem with reading comprehension.
