I enjoyed this article, Yehoshua. Thanks for writing it. I also feel Israel's queer critics are not interested in calling Israeli politicians' bluffs so that rights for LGBTs inside Israel continue to advance. I don't think they care about this. I feel they are only interested in continuing accusations of Israeli pinkwashing. That's it - their motivation isn't to advance LGBT rights (certainly for for Israelis, probably not for Palestinians, either); the purpose is just to attack Israel.
