Michael Lucas and Israel

Michael Lucas is one of the world's most famous gay porn directors, founder of Lucas Entertainment. In some industries, the chief executives of companies would be shredded by shareholders for speaking out so publicly, and repeatedl
y, on controversial issues. Michael Lucas, however, is not ordinary C.E.O and his repeated support for Israel has earned him great publicity, for more than just his 'art'.

Queers for Palestine?

We all seem to get very mad, and for good reason, when Ann Coulter or the latest right wing pundit uses the word faggot or spews that gay people are the downfall of civilization.Yet, we don’t get upset about organizations like the San Francisco based QUIT -- Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism chanting their oxymoronic mantra, “Queers for Palestine”.
The motto by itself evokes such a horrific mutilation of progressive thought. If you are queer and for Palestine it means that you are for the stoning of gay people. It means that you are for the torturing and disfigurement of gay people. You are for the brutal harassment and honor killings of gay people—because these are the things that Palestinians do to us.
QUIT advocates the divestment from Israel. They call for a boycott of Israeli products, an end to U.S. aid in the Jewish state and an end to investments in universities and Israeli establishments and corporations.

What makes QUIT and their slogan “Queers for Palestine” such foolish rhetoric is that these gay people's affinity for Palestine is clearly unrequited. If these 'queers' want to march around with their delusional banners for Palestine—then they are free to make that irrational mistake. But do they think Palestine is for them? Queers for Palestine = laughable. Palestine for queers = horrendous torture and death.

In fact the Muslim world in general is incredibly not even homophobic but criminal toward gay people. In most Muslim countries being gay is punishable by death or imprisonment and Palestine is one of the cruelest murderers of homosexuals. In Palestine gays can have a choice of being publicly hanged, stoned, mutilated, thrown from the building roofs—often by their own families, or simple torn apart by the Palestinian sons of Allah.

These sons have even got creative enough to infiltrate internet gay chat rooms, posing as potential friends or dates to meet and hunt down their prey.

Tales—err nightmares of what life is like for gays in Palestinian society are horrifying in the extreme. In fact, gay youth in Palestine frequently flee to Israel if they can get a chance—and Israel accepts them.

If you were to go to Israel with a big sign that said I am gay and pro Palestine then you will be left alone—not bothered or remotely harmed. If you were to go to Palestine with a sign that says I am gay and pro Palestine then you will be killed and no one will protect you.
So why in the world would gay activists protest against one of the centers of gay liberation (Israel) and for one of the planet's most violently oppressive homophobic societies (Palestine)?
Many call it insanity; others say naivety or poor information. But these are complete delusional lies. Because, try as I might, I can't comprehend any other justification for being a member of QUIT other than overwhelming anti-Semitism. It is common knowledge that Palestinians are violent murders of gay people. So it is not because of misinformation or stupidity of the members of these groups, they can’t possibly lack this awareness. The new form of anti-Semitism is to be anti-Israeli, thus the support for Palestine and in correlation support for the murders of gay people.

There is a bigger picture to this— although many gays across the world are not members of these organizations but basically share their views. I have met hundreds of them whether I am home in New York or abroad in Europe. This is the frightening part that some gay people hate Jews to the point that they are ready to unite with people who are killing their own kind to fight and protest what they consider a common enemy—Jews. They would make a pact with their own enemy, with their own murderers against the Jewish state.

This is what “Queers for Palestine” are for. In response the homosexual and Jewish communities should unite against Islam; for it is the Muslims you seek the death of all gays and Jews.
I have always thought of myself as a liberal... because I am. But it's a shame that the good word of liberalism has been hijacked by a bunch of anti-Semites.

So to the "liberals" who want to rally in support of organizations such as QUIT should really think about the consequences the gay people in Palestine are enduring. These horrific slaying and persecutions are the reality of the situation in Palestine. But these liberals turn a blind eye to it so that they can express a new outlet for their hatred of Israel.
