    Here is a great policy opportunity for Israel. Make a stand internationally for gay people. Announce that persecuted gays from a declared list of countries will be welcomed into Israel on a permanent basis. This will create a major crisis in Europe/America as the Left has a nervous breakdown having to deal with Israel's liberality toward gay men and women and Islamic/Palestinian horror of and hovering murder toward gay men and women. Give the foreign gay men and women a 6 year general residence/work/study/travel visa and after that let them go, one by one, to some office of the Shin Bet and talk about becoming Israeli citizens. There is no need to assume that gay palestinians can survive in the West Bank/Gaza or any future Palestine under a 'don't ask don't tell' silliness. Nor should we assume that gay palestinians 'hate Israel'. Is there any proof for this charge? As someone who personally is gay ( barukh Ha Shem!!!) and non Jewish I lived openly in Israel for 8 years, on kibbutz and in Jerusalem. I had this idea of a 6 year general residence visa for persecuted gays back in the 1970s. It's still a good idea.
