Israel, the big-ass cop training camp? Oh boy... Talking about heterosexism, you know, where gay, lesbian and bi Palestinians run, when their fellow Palestinians want to kill them? To Israel, baby! The totalitarianism in Gaza is made by the Hamas, Israel left this place coupla years ago, FYI--Arisboch (talk) 12:07, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Hamas runs Gaza and is deeply homophobic. And that somehow means the West Bank can't be a laboratory for authoritarianism for the rest of the world's governments? BTW, Gaza is the world's biggest prison because of Hamas ruling it, yes partly, but also because of Israel letting close to no one in or out. So really, those LGBT Gazans have nowhere to run, and you can thank Olmert, Livni, and Netanyahu for it. Rand0 (talk) 04:43, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
They run to Israel, mainly to Tel Aviv, the "gay capital of the Middle East". You seem also to forget, that Hamas is ruling there, so it rather prudent of Israel to hold a rather tight control over who gets in or out and there is also the border crossing to Egypt. About the West Bank, well, there's simply no proof for that whole assumption...--Arisboch (talk) 06:58, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
