And the media? Do not expect any outrage from them. And do not expect members of the Fraud Squad to bemoan the discrimination either
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.
Not satisfied with banning them, the PA then promised to arrest any of the members they found.
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.
And again, Rashida Tlaib? AOC? Ayanna “Massa” Pressley? The Little Ball of Hate Ilhan Omar? Do not expect even a peep out of them.
