Why Is The Advocate Afraid To Talk About Palestine?

Posted: October 9, 2014 in for your reflection, Solidarity

This excellent piece by Keegan O’Brien published on The Electronic Intifada is a must read by everyone. Much thanks to Guerrilla Pride for bringing this to our attention.

The LGBTQ magazine is more than willing to provide a platform for bigoted diatribes peddled in the service of pinkwashing Israeli apartheid.
We here at furbirdsqueerly love this lines lines with a big YES!
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned being a queer person in this society, it’s a basic sense of solidarity; we always have a responsibility to stand with those living under the boot of oppression, no matter who’s standing on the necks. The best of our history is about collective struggles against injustice and solidarity among all the oppressed. It’s a movement and history that has no place being used in the service of pinkwashing Israel’s policies.”
