Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria O Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley all support the Palestinian Authority who has just come out and banned all LGBT members from activities in the West Bank.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Luay Zreikat, a spokesperson for the PA Police, said activities from the organization are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.”
Zreikat slammed the LGBTQ activities as “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs, especially in the city of Nablus.”
He went further by calling out unnamed “dubious parties” trying to “create discord and harm civic peace in Palestinian society.” How will the Radical Four respond to this? I expect Omar and Tlaib to issue statements of condemnation immediately.
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. The group operates both in the West Bank and among Arab-Israelis.
Explaining the decision to ban the LGBTQ group from operating in PA-controlled areas, Luay Zreikat, spokesperson for the PA Police, said that such activities are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.”
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. [JPost]
Zreikat told Palestinians to report any person connected to the LGBTQ group to the police so they could be brought to trial when arrested. Do you hear that sounds? That’s the sounds of deafening silence coming from the American left.
Will this lead to a change within the LGBTQ community with respect to support of these terrorists?
