One cannot view the current situation between Israel and Gaza without being absolutely appalled at the reaction to it all around the world. Note that I said: "appalled at the reaction to it." It is the reaction which is appalling, as is the encouragement it gives to blood thirsty murderers and terrorists.
The amount of hypocritical BS that so many 'self-styled' politically correct people are spouting is at once both mind-numbing and nauseating. But I wonder how many PC activists actually understand who and what they are supporting while calling for the blood of Jews. For those who are gay or have gay friends, perhaps the following article might open the eyes a little.
The following quotes are from Little protection for gays in Jordan by Aaron Magid at 'Al-Monitor'
Jordan is one of few countries in the region, along with Bahrain, Iraq and Israel, where homosexual acts are not criminalized.
The media also reflects the conservative nature of Jordanian society. When describing gays or lesbians, the press often uses the condescending term "shath," deviant, instead of more neutral terms. After a group of Jordanians attempted to register a gay group with the government, many media outlets ridiculed the move. One headline read: "Registration for sexual deviants is an abominable crime against the rights of society and religion."
While acknowledging that homosexuals are treated worse in certain other countries in the region, Zeid repeatedly emphasized that there is no anti-discrimination law protecting the LGBT community from the societal pressures against being gay. He said, "We are human beings and we don't have to compare ourselves to the situation around us. We should have the same rights as other people in Europe."
(If you can get over the title, this article which I published 8 years ago might also give you some insight into the fate of homosexuals in Muslim countries.)
To repeat the first sentence from the article above: Jordan is one of few countries in the region, along with Bahrain, Iraq and Israel, where homosexual acts are not criminalized.
Do you know where Jordan is? It is a neighbour of Israel, The West Bank and Gaza. Did the article mention the West Bank and Gaza?
I find it strange that all those 'heart gushing blood' political correctness activists who scream blue bloody murder at Israel in their defense of Hamas (a COUNTRY which starts wars1, breaks truces2 and plans the deaths of thousands of Jewish Children at a time3 ) don't understand that 'human rights' 4 (gay rights - women's rights - children's right) don't actually exist in places like Gaza. Unless they are actually the most intellectually handicapped people in the world, then these 'pretend' bleeding hearts are the most hypocritical (PC 101) and base genocidal maniacs the world has ever seen.
I think Andrew Bolt was right on the money in his article "Hatred of Jews is fuelling protests across the Western world" when he wrote:
But, like I said, this is not really about Gaza, where Israel is fighting Hamas terrorists who have fired thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians in the past two months -- and keep firing even during ceasefires. Yes, these pictures of dead Palestinian children are horrifying. They are meant to be, which is why Hamas shoots from among its civilians and orders them to ignore Israeli warnings to move clear of targets. That is also why the United Nations has found missiles hidden in at least three schools it runs in Gaza and why Hamas so pointlessly launches them at Israeli cities -- to provoke Israel into exactly this self-defence against an enemy whose stated aim is to destroy it. Then when Israel does shoot back, cue protests and riots around the world to exhaust the West's willingness to defend not just Israel but Jews generally.
Don't tell me these protests are about Israel's "blockade" of Gaza, which actually has a border with Egypt porous enough to let Hamas smuggle in thousands of rockets. Don't tell me they're about Israel's "occupation" when Israel does not occupy an inch of Gaza. And especially don't tell me these protests are about Israel's "war crimes" or "murders". No, if these protests are really against killing Muslims -- and not against Jews -- then where are the protests over the 2000 Syrians killed by other Muslims in the past two weeks. (Bringing the total of 170,000 if my memory serves me right - RPBD)
Between the terrorists, the traitors, the hypocrites and the sheer bloody ignorance of the 'self-righteous' sheep, there had better be a Messiah ready to intervene in the history of this world, for without one, we are most certainly headed toward the destruction of everything that makes us human.
1 Arab Leaders, Viewing Hamas as Worse Than Israel, Stay Silent by David Kirkpatrick N.Y. Times
"The Arab states' loathing and fear of political Islam is so strong that it outweighs their allergy to Benjamin Netanyahu," the prime minister of Israel, said Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Wilson Center in Washington and a former Middle East negotiator under several presidents.
"I have never seen a situation like it, where you have so many Arab states acquiescing in the death and destruction in Gaza and the pummeling of Hamas," he said. "The silence is deafening."
And the pro-government Egyptian news media has continued to rail against Hamas as a tool of a regional Islamist plot to destabilize Egypt and the region, just as it has since the military ouster of President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood one year ago. (Egyptian prosecutors have charged Hamas with instigating violence in Egypt, killing its soldiers and police officers, and even breaking Mr. Morsi and other Brotherhood leaders out of jail during the 2011 uprising.)
The diatribes against Hamas by at least one popular pro-government talk show host in Egypt were so extreme that the government of Israel broadcast some of them into Gaza.

3 Hamas Tunnels Used To Target Israel's Kindergartens
Multiple media outlets report that Hamas's offensive tunnel network -- now known to have been composed of over forty attack tunnels dug underneath Israel's border with the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip -- was set to be activated during the Jewish High Holidays (September 24th) as a mass terror attack. The attack was meant to generate as many as ten thousand casualties, men, women and particularly children and hundreds of captives. Explosives were particularly placed underneath kindergartens to make certain that these "institutions" would be the first struck, even before any thing else.
Hamas Executes Tunnel Diggers to Protect Site Secrecy
To prevent the diggers of Hamas' tunnels from revealing their locations, Hamas recently executed dozens of diggers, according to a report.
Money for the construction of the tunnels comprised 40 percent of Hamas' entire budget.
The Institute for Palestine Studies published an extensive report on Hamas' tunnel building in 2012. The report stated that "at least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials." The terror group uses the children, according to the report, because "much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies."
4 Apartheid in Israel is beyond comprehension
Despite the deliberately misleading slant of the text in this article, the video actually records the truth about how Israel treats everyone of any religion or other pursuasion and shows indisputably the lie behind those who claim that Israel MUST BE boycotted or destroyed. Another video supports the video in the article listed above, by relating the experiences of five Ethopian Israelis who attended a conferance in Africa.
