Homosexuality may be legal in Jordan, Iraq, and the PA, but most homosexuals still stay closeted even from their own families. With the rate of "honor killings" in those countries I don't think there'll be any gay pride parades in any of them soon. Besides, what does gay pride have to do with the Israeli/Palestinian dispute? Can't people EVER hold a demonstration or parade about ANYTHING without dragging that issue in? It's starting to smell.
