Earlier this week, a group called Queers Against Israeli Apartheid boasted that the Pride Toronto organizers had voted to reverse a decision which would now let them march in the Gay Pride parade. They proudly touted it as a blow against censorship and then issued this statement: “This is a victory for the Palestine solidarity movement, which has faced censorship and bullying tactics from the | Read More »
J Street apologist miscounts Israeli options.
