Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people generally have limited or highly restrictive rights in most parts of the Middle East, and are open to hostility in others. Sex between men is illegal in 9 of the 18 countries that make up the region. It is punishable by death in five of these 18 countries. The rights and freedoms of LGBT citizens are strongly influenced by the prevailing cultural traditions and religious mores of people living in the region – particularly Islam.
All same sex is legal in: Turkey, Israel, Egypt (de jure), Jordan, West Bank, Lebanon (de facto), Cyprus, Northern Cyprus, Bahrain, Iraq (de jure), Kuwait
Illegal in: Syria, Egypt (de facto), Gaza Strip, Iran, Iraq (de facto), Lebanon (de jure), Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Kuwait (for males)
Male same-sex activity is illegal and punishable by imprisonment in Kuwait, Egypt, Oman and Syria. It is also punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. In Yemen and the Gaza Strip, the punishment might differ between death and imprisonment depending on the act committed.

How sad. I really hope they find the person who heartlessly did this to a 69-year-old. They're saying they're not ruling out a hate crime, if evidence points to that. This is too much.

R5 It's true. People forget that non-Jewish gays were sent to the camps too. Even straight Jewish men are famously derided for not being "masculine" enough. Antisemitism and homophobia often come hand in hand. In the same way that the most effective antisemitic campaigns throughout history have utilized Token Jews to call for their own take downs, the LGBTQ are now being used to do the same.

Team Israel. Although the war is being perpetrated by each respective nations hard right leaders. In the end, Islamic nations are hardcore homophobes and Israel has been progressive on LGB issues. I know that that is not what the issues are about in this conflict, but Islam is a religion for psychotics.

Well, there would be less civilian deaths if Hamas wasn’t so at peace with using Palestinians as human shields, but they hate Israel more than they care about their people. And really, there is no acceptable number of civilian deaths. Rather, it is an unavoidable outcome of war. I would think if Palestine and Hamas cared about such things they would be willing to work on a two state solution, but nah, they don’t want to. Israelis have every right to defend themselves and like England in WWII bombing cities in Germany, civilian deaths will happen. 🥰🥰🥰🥰

He wouldn’t have had to kill her if she hadn’t disrespected him! But really this ‘human shield’ thing is becoming less and less acceptable, see the reality of the supposed ‘Hamas headquarters’ at Al Shifa hospital. But you keep on excusing war crimes.
[quote] Israelis have every right to defend themselves
As do Palestinians. In terms of what is happening now, then you would accept a massive attack from Palestine killing thousands upon thousands of Israeli citizens?

I don’t consider England’s bombing of Germany as a war crime. Rather it is an example of what happens in war. And yes, I think Israel has every justification in the world to defend itself.
Whether I would find it acceptable if Hamas leveled a “massive” attack is kind of a stupid question. They started this war with an attack that killed innocent Israelis and some foreigners attending a music festival. They raped a German woman until she was bleeding from her ass and then dragged her around for all to see spitting on her and celebrating. Hamas is doing its best to kill as many Israelis as possible. If they are falling short of their intended goal each day how is that an example of being the righteous side? I’m not understanding your point.
When Israel defends itself its a war crime. When Hamas attacks Israel, they are freedom fighters. Such bullshit. Jews have long been in that region before the Muslim religion even existed. They have every right to continue to be there. The Wailing Wall wasn’t built by Muslims after all. The solution is two states but Palestinians have rejected that repeatedly. They are more invested in their hatred.

Oh well then it's settled. R42 has decided the deaths of 25,000 civilians doesn't count as a war crime. Contact the press.
[quote] They started this war with an attack that killed innocent Israelis and some foreigners attending a music festival.
Which was precipitated by 50+ years of indignities afforded against the Palestinian people, and massive civilian consistent casualties over the last 20 years. I'm not saying it justifies it (which is what you are saying on behalf of Israel, but it is unignorable context).
[quote] Hamas is doing its best to kill as many Israelis as possible.
And Israel is actually killing as many Palestinians as possible.
[quote] When Israel defends itself its a war crime.
When Israel commits war crimes it's a war crime. Important distinction.
[quote] When Hamas attacks Israel, they are freedom fighters.
Who said that? Anyone here in this thread? FWIW I believe that the Hamas attack on Oct 7th was a war crime, and anyone I know that is in favour of a ceasefire and / or justice for Palestinians agrees with that.
[quote] Jews have long been in that region before the Muslim religion even existed.
Palestinians and Jewish people have both been in the area in terms of their lineage for thousands of years. They both should be able to live there. As things currently stand, only the Palestinians are being removed from their lands. An existential threat is not the same as actual real time events that are happening as we speak.
[quote] The Israelis are similarly invested in hatred. The only way forward here is a ceasefire and internationally enforced peace talks, with a two state solution as the endpoint.

Thousands of years? Aren't Palestinians Arabs? The Arab Conquest followed Muhammed's hejira. Also, the Ottoman Empire sought subjects to move to its Palestinian province, explaining Palestinian surnames indicating Sudanese or Egyptian ancestry.
[quote] They both should be able to live there.
Agreed. Arabs and Jews coexist in Israel. How are Jews treated in the Palestinian territories?
[quote] As things currently stand, only the Palestinians are being removed from their lands.
Palestinians should not be removed from their lands. Any settlers who vandalize Palestinian farms or terrorize Palestinians should be imprisoned.
And I won't hold my breath waiting for any Palestinian to admit the Jordanian Army ethnically "cleansed" what is now called the West Banks of Jews. They will complain about Palestinians being evicted from homes in Sheik Jarrah without ever mentioning that those are Jewish-owned homes. They will conveniently ignore the Jews having been forced out and Palestinians having been placed in their homes.
