Palestinian police vow crackdown on LGBTQ events in West Bank

Palestinian police have threatened to arrest anyone involved in an upcoming gathering planned by LGBTQ activists in the northern West Bank town of Nablus.

The statement from the Palestinian police announcing the ban came after alQaws held an event in Nablus, a city in the northern West Bank, in early August. The organization had plans to hold another event there at the end of the month.

Police said Sunday they would "pursue this gathering" and seek charges against anyone involved in it, according to The Associated Press. The Palestinian police are under the Western-backed Palestinian Authority, which governs parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank.https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/palestinian-police-vow-crackdown-lgbtq-events-west-bank-n1044081

  • Democrats defend the Palestinian authority and bash Israel. Israel guarantee the rights of LGBTS while Palestine does not. Odd because Democrats portray Jewish state as the New Nazis while Palestinian government as the Oppressed. Who is oppressing who here?

    Democrats defending the Palestinian authority which executes gays while calling Israel the new Nazi country. These are the same Democrats who accused Trump of being a anti gay while here they are defending the Palestinian authority which kills gays.

    This is why i never take liberals so seriously. They say we must love everyone and here they are defending a country that kills gays.
