Guardian attacks Israel’s record on LGBT rights

As pro-Israel LGBT rights activist Scott Piro argued previously on these pages, the real queer foes are those (like the Guardian Jerusalem correspondents) who consistently ignore the horrors committed against LGBTs in the Palestinian territories – and throughout the Middle East – in order to satisfy their readers’ malign obsession with the world’s only Jewish state.

Contrary to a Guardian headline, leftist writer Etgar Keret is NOT being boycotted by Israelis

Of course, when anti-Israel foreign activists boycott Keret, it’s part of an organized campaign to exclude him and his work from the international literary arena, born of an ideological belief that all Israelis are morally beyond the pale. When Israelis who disagree with his politics personally choose not to buy Keret’s books or see his films, they’re not part of any sort of similar campaign to censor him, but are simply exercising an individual choice as consumers.
