    I am queer and in Toronto and I fully support QaIA. And, don't you worry, despite the Pro-Israel camp lying through their teeth to label them a hate group, they'll stay and Pride will continue. You just watch us! ... it is so nice to be queer sometimes...:) And the more the Pro-Israel group goes at it,... the better known they will become... and the more supporters they will have. So please, go on about it. As someone else put it in a Toronto discussion... if this was "queers agasint dutch apartheid" the dutch would laugh... they know they aren't an apartheid state, they know everyone can tell they aren't... I guess Pro-Israel groups aren't so sure that the issue is so clear. And about gay policies in the middle eastern world... we know... we hate it, but we are also human beings and all human rights matter to us.
