The house demolitions, the building of the wall, the police violence, the criminal neglect and all the other means the city of Jerusalem is using to make the life of one-third of its residents hell is very much connected to the oppression of other minority groups. The origin of all of this oppression is the same, and those struggling to be liberated from oppression, be it sexual, national, economic or others must be united.”
    o c’mon…if you asked most if not all of the palestinian national factions, especially the ones who understand their situation as simply a “struggle” they would be quite hesisant to form a coalition with gay Jews. It’s intellectually flawed, does an injustice to the texture of the GLBT struggle both in Jerusalem and the world and unfairly characterizes the Palestinian national movement as something linked to all struggles – whether they concern municipal policy or nationalist conflicts. Its this sort of shoddily routed activism that alienates progressive zionists who see a unique validity in their own struggle.
