  1. MK Ibrahim Sarsur (United Arab List) told the committee that “these types of problems” don’t exist in Muslim society. “Every man has the right to do what he pleases, but not if it offends others,” he said.

    I think that’s my favorite quote of the day.

  2. I’m offended by Ibrahim Sarsur’s statement, and I have the right not to be offended.

  3. I’m offended by Islam in general.

    I demand a written apology from all of Islamdom, and that they disband the religion ASAP.

  4. Um, I’m offended by killing innocent people, specifically terrorism.

  5. Governments are the largest perpetrators of terrorism by far.

  6. See, it doesn’t really matter which God you worship, as long as He hates fags…

  7. I’m shocked! I’m shocked!

  8. I’m struck not just by the diversity of religious communities represented, but by the diversity of the violently homophobic curses they came up with.

    It’s like a taspestry. Or a quilt. If bedclothes were simultaneously terrifying and infuriating.

  9. What a vile, despicable bunch. Truly, they deserve each other.

  10. Fun times!

    I know a Palestinian lesbian who hates all Israelis for persecuting her people. I know an Israeli lesbian who hates all the Arabs for fighting war against her people. I know a Israeli Intelligence officer who brags about killing Arabs in Jordan. I know conservative Israelis who hate fags and Arabs. And I know Syrians, Egyptians, Jordanians, and Lebanese folks who hate fags, Israelis and each other, unless there is a fag or Israeli in discussion for them to hate in which case they are all friends. Let’s not even get into the Christian Lebanese family who hates Jews, Muslims, and Syrians or the Jewish Egyptian family who hates Egyptians.

    But fortunately, all that crap is left behind in the old countries, and here in the USofA, we can all work together, drink together, go to dinner together, and whatever else we do together. Let them have their Gay pride fight. It makes me feel warm on the inside to see all the hate-mongers squirm.

    In another thought…

    Maybe Type-O-Negative needs to take a tour of the holy land.

    Now I don’t know whose ass you’ve licked

    No shit-tongued boy will ever taste my dick

    He says:

    “How ’bout no sex – we’ll just be friends”

    Hey no thanks Pal, I’ll stick with lesbians

    You’re Right!

    A sexist pig, I guess it’s true

    (I hate all men including you)

    I don’t care what you think of me

  11. I don’t understand. Why pick that particular location on Earth? Is there an expectation that there will be sudden understanding & acceptance in the holy land? Are the Jerusalem Open House and the Coalition for Gay, Bisexual, Lesbian, and Transgender Rights folks so enamored with the Libertarian Party’s way of doing things (never compromise and never get elected) that they too feel the need to skip the compromise portion of life and go straight to “my way or the highway”?

  12. “holy land”. Yeah. I’ve found that designation repugnant since I was a small child. A patch of dirt soaked in blood and thousands of years of hate.

  13. Maybe the heros of Gay Day need to spend this year over at The Holy Land Experience.

  14. Trouble,

    Since when did the right to assemble become so controversial?

    BTW, as I recall this same group had a march through Rome a few years and the Vatican flipped its lid and demanded that they not be allowed to march. Wow, the RCC has such respect for civil rights and human dignity. Not.

  15. “holy land”. Yeah. I’ve found that designation repugnant since I was a small child. A patch of dirt soaked in blood and thousands of years of hate.

    Agreed. Let the whole damn stupid region slide into the Mediterranean and take the fanatics of all faiths with them.

  16. Let the whole damn stupid region slide into the Mediterranean

    I hope the region does not explode for my family’s sake.

    take the fanatics of all faiths with them.

    I’d like the fanatics of all faiths and political affiliations to fall off this good Earth, regardless of location or object of fanaticism.

    I haven’t found much reason to hope recently though between these desperate and bored Semites. In the world for that matter. The fanaticism industry controls the media in all countries, especially in the Middle East. Even when there are competing and opposing fanatics in a media (as they are in the US), they are still by definition, the loudest.

    IMHO, Most people, gay or straight, in Israel, Egypt, Syria, etc just want to live to see 2007 without losing an arm or a head.

    Did you see the yellow sign the guy in the article is holding? “People with Aids Belong in Hospitals”

    Har har har.

  17. I know a Palestinian lesbian who hates all Israelis for persecuting her people. I know an Israeli lesbian who hates all the Arabs for fighting war against her people.

    Hey, get those two in a room together and it’ll bring a whole new meaning to the phrase Middle East unrest.

  18. I hope they suicide bomb those dirty fags.

  19. They all know how dangerous homosexuality is. Judaism has the death penalty for homosexuality (thankfully not carried out these days) and that probably explains the Libertarian foam-at-the-mouth hatred for Israel.

  20. Here’s a new peace plan: why doesn’t the US military recruit only gay soldiers? We’ve got troops all over the world. Any region that experiences war, terrorism or genocide and the Pentagon simply threatens with a gay pride parade. The opposing sides see a greater threat, find common ground and peace is restored without a shot being fired. Well, maybe a few. But that’s on your own time, soldier!

  21. Y’gotta admit, both muslims and jews make great gays! Swarthy, muscular, that desert musk. Mmmmm. Let’s get this party started!

  22. I think that repressive sexual societies cause sexual deviancy more than create it.

    George Carlin said something about getting rid of organized religion, and you would have no sexual deviants.

    I don’t know, sounds reasonable to me.

  23. kwais,
    It wouldn’t surprise me. In Egypt, at least, Saudi Arabia is well known for (not so) secret homosexuality. Especially of the NAMBLA (I guess in SA, it would be APMBLA) sort.

  24. I like it “every **man** can do as he pleases”

    Every woman, just be obedeint or be flogged.

    I **do** hate pricks like him.

  25. Phileuterus said”

    “BTW, as I recall this same group had a march through Rome a few years and the Vatican flipped its lid and demanded that they not be allowed to march.”

    It might well be that the words “march on Rome” brought back memories of someone called Benito…

    You never know. You allow people to March on Rome, and before you know, they are running the show and metting you in wars that you cannot win.

  26. “Mo,”

    It wouldn’t surprise me. In Egypt, at least, Saudi Arabia is well known for (not so) secret homosexuality. Especially of the NAMBLA (I guess in SA, it would be APMBLA) sort.

    Homosexuals are normal people who are hardwired for sexual attraction to members of the same sex; pedophiles (NAMBLA) are morally degenerate, perhaps sick people. Equating homosexuals with child molesters is a view not supported by modern psychology.

    There is no support in the homosexual community for NAMBLA, despite what you may have heard from Fred Phelps, et als.

    Seems like if you want to claim homosexuality is “hardwired”, you’d have to consider that pedophilia is also hardwired.

  28. Seems like if you want to claim homosexuality is “hardwired”, you’d have to consider that pedophilia is also hardwired.

    It’s entirely possible, not that the etiology necessarily has much to do with the moral value of the act. I see nothing wrong with homosexuals doing homosexual things. I also see nothing wrong with expecting paedophiles, hardwired or not, never to act on that inclination.

  29. Adriana:

    Does “all men are created equal” mean “women are not created equal”?

  30. hale, jcavar,

    The large majority of pedophiles learned the behavior and preference in their youths, either by being abused themselves, or by seeing the abuse.

    The large majority of homosexuals, on the other hand, grew up on heterosexual families, and turned out gay anyway. That, to me, suggests hardwiring.

    Pedophilia is more like a computer virus that you get.

  31. Steven at July 7, 2006 02:33 AM,

    Well the Palestinians kill fags. Which is probably why Palis get so much Libertarian support.

    BTW why is this parade happening in Israel and not the West Bank?

    Oh, yeah. The Palestinians kill fags. The Israelis just scream at them.

  32. anon:

    exactly. Why else would they have the husband take possession of te property of the wife, and allow him to hit her when she needed chastisement?
