The Palestinian Authority has just banned an LGBTQ group and al their activities:
JERUSALEM POST – The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.
The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group operates both in the West Bank and among Arab-Israelis.
Explaining the decision to ban the LGBTQ group from operating in PA-controlled areas, Luay Zreikat, spokesperson for the PA Police, said that such activities are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.”
Zreikat said that the group’s activities were completely “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs, especially in the city of Nablus.”
They aren’t just banning the group…
The PA police will chase those behind the LGBTQ group and see to it that they are brought to trial once they are arrested, Zreikat warned. He further appealed to Palestinians to report to the police about any person connected to the group.
Wow. They are going to arrest and bring them to justice!
This must be causing great consternation in the Democratic party. What ever will they say about this? Better yet, what will AOC and her Squad members Omar and Tlaib, who are all supporters of the BDS movement, say about this?
Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) have remained silent after the Palestinian Authority banned LGBT activity in the West Bank.
I’m not surprised. They probably don’t know what to do with themselves and are trying to figure out just how to handle this. My best guess is that they will keep ignoring it…
On a related point, I do wish Israel had been the one to ban LGBTQ activies to be honest. But alas, they love homosexuality there as much as liberals do here and elsewhere in the world. Israel has become Sodom again, just as the Bible predicted.
