Is the plea of a Muslim Palestinian from Nablus to the High Court of Justice Thursday. What was this poor man’s crime? Spying for Israel? No. Being a member of Hamas? No. Being a member of Fatah? No. Being gay? Yes. He is a gay Palestinian and Muslim. A death sentence in the Muslim world.
A homosexual Palestinian man petitioned the High Court of Justice Thursday against Interior Minister Eli Yishai and the public committee reviewing humanitarian cases at the Interior Ministry following their decision to reject his appeal for legal residency status in Israel.
According to the petitioner, his request was denied despite indication of special humanitarian circumstances and therefore violates the Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law. In his petition, the man also requested that the court issue an edict preventing authorities from deporting him until the court rules on his matter.
The petitioner, a Muslim Palestinian from Nablus who grew up in Israel until the age of six, said he is an openly gay man, whose sexual orientation is well known in the West Bank and was even reported in the Palestinian media.
He further noted that he has been living in Tel Aviv with his Israeli partner for many years, and that the two had signed a domestic partnership agreement over a decade ago.
According to the petitioner, if he is deported back to the Palestinian Authority, his life would be in danger.
He claimed that he has been arrested and beaten by the Palestinian police due to his sexual orientation in the past, and that his family has disowned him and warned him against returning to Nablus.
After a long wait, the petitioner was informed last October that the chairman of the committee, Minister Yishai, has decided to deny his request – a decision the petitioner is claiming discriminates against same sex couples.
To Muslims Homosexuality is a sin punishable by death. Hundreds of Muslims living in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza have fled to Israel in fear for their lives. In fact every stereotype of being gay is exploited. For instance it is widely believed that all male hairdressers are gay. Therefore no man can be a hairdresser. Or that idiot Ahmadinejad’s statement to the world that there are no gays in Iran. That is somewhat true. They have killed so many.
Yep. No gays here. Just dead gays.
In Israel the LGBT community is open. They live openly, they serve in the IDF, they can adopt. Although gay marriage is not performed in Israel, if a couple marries in a nation in which gay marriage is allowed, their marriage is accepted by the State of Israel. Gay partners have the same rights as non-gay partners. While the US persecuted gays in the military, then implemented “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The IDF had the policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Give A Damn!” They serve, and many in combat units too.
Yet the majority of the LGBT side with the Muslims of Judea, Samaria and Gaza and not with Israel. Hamas and the PA both execute gays and lesbians for the crime of Homosexuality. But American, Canadian and European Gays work towards the destruction of Israel. They are leaders in the BDS movement. They are always in the forefront of Fakistinian parades against Israel.
The next time one of these useful idiots yell at you ask them how many people turned out for the Gay Pride Parade in Gaza? Answer: 0 They don’t have one. Then ask them how many turned out for the Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem? Answer: More than 5,000. Then ask why only Turkey has a Gay Pride Parade and no other Muslim nation has one? Ask them why try to destroy the only Middle East nation that accepts their gay and lesbian children? They will never answer that question.
I do hope the High Court elects to grant this poor man asylum in Israel. He has been in Israel for 10 years, in a loving relationship and has committed no crime. He is what is good in the region and deserves life.
