Queers for who? what? huh?

Some people have the nerve to call Log Cabin Republicans odd; but what about this group? Talk about hanging out with people that hate you! The Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism (QUIT) take first prize.

I would LOVE to see these gay boys and gals go protest in Palestine. They wouldn't last 30 seconds. Here's an example of their thought process, quoted from their own website:
Don't Palestinians use terrorism as well?

There have been individual acts of Palestinian terrorism that have been highly popularized by the U.S. media and used as propaganda tools by Zionists. We don't support attacks on unarmed civilians. At the same time it must be understood that it is the right of any occupied people to resist and fight for their freedom, in fact it is their duty. Historically every freedom struggle has been accompanied by acts of terrorism from the oppressed. Of the 500 Palestinians killed since September 2000, nearly all have been civilians. The majority of the 100 Israelis killed in the same period have been soldiers. Palestinian acts of terrorism pale in contrast to Israel's terrorism which have affected almost every Palestinian family through deaths, long-term injuries, beatings, deprivation of work, travel restrictions, daily humiliations. The heavy cost of trying to resist the 4th most powerful nuclear-armed military power in the world has not deterred the Palestinians from struggling for their freedom.
I'm flabbergasted. Paul Varnell has good article on the Independent Gay Forum that takes this way of thinking to task. The article starts with the following quiz for these misguided children of the left, on gay rights in the Middle East:

LET'S TAKE A QUIZ. No peeking at the answers directly below.
  1. Which Middle Eastern country has no sodomy laws nor uses vague charges such as "offenses against religion" or "immoral conduct" to prosecute and imprison gays and lesbians?
  2. Which Middle Eastern country has a variety of gay organizations which safely conduct gay advocacy efforts?
  3. Which Middle Eastern country has a gay and lesbian community center in its capital city?
  4. Which Middle Eastern country holds annual Gay Pride parades?
  5. Which Middle Eastern country has members of parliament who actively support and speak out on behalf of gays and lesbians?
  6. In which Middle Eastern country did the head of state meet with gay activists?
  7. Which Middle Eastern country lets gays and lesbians join its military services?
  8. Which Middle Eastern country has broadcast programs about gays and lesbians on its television stations? And a bonus question:
  9. When gays in Palestine are forced to flee persecution, what Middle Eastern country do they usually flee to?
  1. Israel
  2. Israel
  3. Israel
  4. Israel
  5. Israel
  6. Israel
  7. Israel
  8. Israel
  9. Israel
What a superb example of not letting the facts get in the way of one's ideology.
