Re: “Memphis Native Immigrates to Israel With 233 Americans

Nick,
The treatment of homosexuals is a measuring stick. To me, it's a measuring stick of civilization. To the uncivilized, it's a measuring stick of moral decay.

The treatment of women is another measuring stick. Why do America's liberals leap to the defense of people who drape women in burkas or headscarves?

Yes, the seizure of land for Jewish settlements is a horrible thing, driven by an uncivilized and deluded religious viewpoint. But since I live thousands of miles away, I'll avoid letting anger tip the scales of my judgment to favor anarchy and medievalism. What I think matters nothing anyway, except as a curiosity on a messageboard.

If there were no gays in the Middle East, you wouldn't give a rats ass. Just like the West, if there were no oil.

Yes, OakTree, it was interesting. He lives in Tel Aviv, and his former boyfriend is Jewish, and it sounds like his life isn't all that bad. It also sounds like Jewish and Palestinian gay men get along fairly well in Israel. So civilization scores a point in Israel, more so than in the surrounding region.

If she plans to make her home Israel, I hope she will be happy there. I also hope she renounces her American citizenship. Dual citizenship is akin to serving two masters--presents an inherent conflict of interest, IMO.

I never understand these "owner surrenders." Wish I could adopt them all.

Brunetto Latini,
Do you know what is going on in Palestine? Even gay sex comes up short when a bulldozer is plowing thru your house.

Just another example of dogs' loyalty to man. Chile Pepper loves Johnny Poppa even if he lives in a fantasy. Keep the treats coming and be sure to take me everywhere you go.

When a cancer gets big enough, it eventually overwhelms the body as a whole, killing it. This applies as much to the body politic as it does to the human body. Mancini did the right thing.

I don't think it's at all funny. This is a disgrace.

Re: “Memphis Native Immigrates to Israel With 233 Americans

How many Palestinian gays are willing to identify themselves as such? I would bet their chances for good lives are better in Israel than in Palestine. Something is better than nothing.

Re: “Memphis Native Immigrates to Israel With 233 Americans

Brunetto,
I agree. But 75 of these "immigrants" plan to join the military which spearheads the illegal occupation and expansion.
Israel is friendly for Caucasian gays perhaps but not for Palestinian gays.
