    Sure a Muslim group cannot allow gays to organize. It’s against the Koran and their basic beliefs.


    However, the Left’s hatred of Israel is go great that it cannot bring itself to denounce the banishment of this group.


    The ban, which was first reported Sunday by the Jerusalem Post, was issued in response to the organizing efforts of Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society, a pro-LGBTQ political group that held an event last month and was planning to hold another in the coming weeks.

    Palestinian Authority police spokesperson Luay Zreikat said that LGBTQ events were “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society” in justifying the ban. Zreikat also accused unspecified “dubious parties” of attempting to “create discord and harm civic peace in Palestinian society” through the group’s events.

    Adherents of the Religion of Peace then performed their usual tactics:

    An unnamed member of Al-Qaws also told the Post that he and his friends have received hundreds of death threats, most of which were sent through Facebook.

    The attack on us is unprecedented,” the man said. “They are calling us traitors and corrupt people and many are calling for our execution. We are afraid for our lives.”

    Better be careful or they’ll be throwing you off rooftops.

    It is a mistake for Palestine to fight a war on two fronts simultaneously.
