Pinkwash this. Palestinians Whitewash LGBT flag

Pinkwash this.

Palestinians have white-washed a rainbow flag painted on  Palestinian side of the security barrier.

Can't show tolerance. No. Not that.

The painter of the flag, Khaled Jarrar, told the Associated Press that the destruction “reflects the absence of tolerance and freedoms in the Palestinian society.”
One man said he helped whitewash the flag because “we cannot promote gay rights.” According to the  Pew research center , 93% of Palestinians believe homosexuality should not be accepted in society.
From Haaretz:
The artwork ignited angry responses among Palestinians and activists whitewashed the flag on Monday night, just a few hours after it was painted on the best known section of Israel's graffiti-covered barrier, next to a portrait of Yasser Arafat and other Palestinian leaders.
Jarrar, 39, who has exhibited in Europe and the United States, told The Associated Press that the destruction "reflects the absence of tolerance, and freedoms in the Palestinian society."
"People don't accept different thinking in our society," he said, adding he drew the rainbow flag on the barrier to put a spotlight on Palestinian issues.
On the Israeli side of the security barrier, nearly 180,000 people participated in the 17th annual Tel Aviv Pride Festival and Parade , the largest LGBT event in the Middle East.

welcome to "Palestine". how did the world ever get so sick and twisted that any members of the LGBT community would become such ardent Israel haters and throw in their support for people who consider their very existence an abomination? today's liberalism is nothing short of a mass Stckoholm syndrome effect among the ultimate narcissists masquerading as human rights activists. and since we know some of those so called liberals follow this blog I hope you're reading this comment. you may have fooled yourself into thinking you're an activist but deep down inside you know just as I do what a brain washed moronic hypocrite you are. truly you are the wet dream of every middle east tyrant and jihadist out there with your 24/7 belly aching about all things America and Israel.

The way sodomites are treated in the Muslim World contrasts with how they're treated in Israel.

And the world still condemns Israel for not meeting its ethereal human rights standards.

Cause for the anti-Israel crowd, the Palestinian Arabs are the poster child for all that's wrong with the Jewish State.

But Arab intolerance and hate are things one shouldn't expect to appear in the Western mass media.
