    I have love for all people and a special place in my heart for oppressed minorities whether they be Christians in Gaza, blacks in the USA, Bahai in Iran, and yes, Arabs in Israel. The presence of minorities and the issues of how they are treated internally has no relevance to the issues of how one nation must defend itself from another. Gazan terrorists can not use their Christians as human shields, just as they do children and non-combatants. The concern for Gazan Christians is seperate from the need for Israel to pretect Israelis from terror. The solution for stopping Gazan Christians from being caught in the crossfire of Israeli operations is the same as for Gazan Muslims -- stop the terror. For the record, I have never advocated the carpet bombing of Gaza.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
