There is a bit of hypocrisy in all this, isn't there? Perhaps their protests would be more sympathetic if they were framed as being against the land grabbing policies of the Israeli government and not as solidarity with the Palestinians who, as the article states, are not exactly pro-gay.

I have long felt that neither side (Zionist or Palestinian) is particularly objective in its views of the Palestine/Israel situation. On both sides, the animosity stems largely from religion. Despite Marx's views that class underlies all human conflict, I think religion takes the greater share of the blame.

Usual antisemitic claptrap, probably written under the influence of crystal meth.
