Re: “We’re young Jews, and we support Queer Arabs of Halifax

I am a Queer Jew, former Israeli, living in Halifax. It hurts me tremendously that the vocal local Jewish community and the AJC are choosing to prioritizes the interests of the state of Israel over ensuring that Queer Jews are actually welcomed and included in community, spiritual and religious spaces. It hurts me that my freedom to be out queer and trans in Tel Aviv would serve to shut down criticism on other human liberties of life and dignity in the region, violated daily by the state of Israel. Antisemitism (and Islamophobia / Arabphobia) are a real issue in the Maritimes. But speaking up against injustices everywhere, including in Zion, are the essence of Tikun Olam and a great Mitzvah.

Re: “Tel Aviv tourism concerns are misplaced, says Atlantic Jewish Council board member

You all. Nobody is banishing Jews or Jewish organizations from the parade. This is about the use of gay money and the image of tolerance to cover up and justify Israel's continued violations of human rights. We need to ask ourselves why we (Jews) choose to promote propaganda for Israel at Pride, rather than actually supporting our Jewish and Semite Queer community members here by boldly standing for unity and human rights.

JOEBLOW the answer to your question is- depends, is the queer person white skinned? do they have a blue or green ID card? do they benefit or die from apartheid? etc...... in short, the racialized and economic reality of Queer people matters in Israel and it matters here.
