Israelís gay immigrants are short on language but long on pride
The Times of Israel ^ | June 4, 2013, 6:55 pm | Debra Kamin

A few years ago, a gay English-speaking immigrant to Israel was standing in line at the post office for the very first time. Wary of using his limited Hebrew at the counter, the man, Phil, turned to a gentleman standing behind him and asked him if he spoke Hebrew and could help.

That man didn’t just speak Hebrew. He was also gay, and friendly, and within days of that chance meeting waiting in line for postage stamps, Phil found himself completely tapped into the LGBT community in Israel.

“If this group didn’t exist, I don’t know how I would have met anyone, to be honest,” Harel says. “Because this isn’t like Philly, where there’s a Gayborhood. Here, [gays] are everywhere. They’re not condensed into one area, so how do you find them? … It’s not like you walk down the street and go, ‘Oh, she’s a lesbian!’”

Tzipi Livni

"Since 18 March 2013 she has served as the Israeli Minister of Justice under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as leader of the liberal Hatnuah party, which won 6 mandates in the January 2013 Israeli elections. She is also charged with overseeing the country's diplomatic initiatives and peace talks with the Palestinians."

"Livni voiced support for Israel's gay community ahead of Gay and Lesbian Pride Month in June 2009. She addressed an event held at the gay community's municipal center in Tel Aviv's Meir Park.[56][57] After a 1 August 2009 attack on a gay youth center that left two people dead and 15 wounded in Tel Aviv, Livni, who is in contact with the gay and lesbian community, said "This event should shake up society, and all the circles inherent in it, including the political establishment and the education system, and on this day deliver an unequivocal message against intolerance, incitement and violence, and to act against any manifestation of these." She attended a rally near the location of the attack, along with hundreds of Israelis and some other politicians, and urged Israel's gay and lesbian community to continue living their lives, despite the "hate crime."[58]

Sodom and Gomorrah and "Peace and Security".

...and had a multi drug resistant strain of syphilis and now Phil knows many words of Hebrew,all of them associated with virology,bacteriology and proctology.

The beginning of this article sounded like the start of some off-color joke that would be told in a bar setting.

Fabulous. Absolutely Fabulous.

Perhaps they can find time to go visit the Pillar of Salt?

First wake-up call may not be until Revelation 11.

Livni is definitely a true liberal fool. She’s hitting on all the cylinders.

“If this group didn’t exist, I don’t know how I would have met anyone, to be honest,” Harel says. “Because this isn’t like Philly, where there’s a Gayborhood. Here, [gays] are everywhere. They’re not condensed into one area, so how do you find them? … It’s not like you walk down the street and go, ‘Oh, she’s a lesbian!’”

One of the signs of the end times is queers in Jerusalem.

1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel(Not Jesus now, but an angel) stood, saying, "Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 But the court which is without(outside) the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they(gentiles, non believers) tread under foot forty and two months (3.5 years). 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses(most likely either Moses and Elijah or Enoch and Elijah) , and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6 These(2 witnesses) have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. 7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

By the time rapture has taken place, it seems that Jerusalem has so many queers that God refers to it as Sodom.

The homosexual agenda outlined. They want access to the kids.

Once again, the world revolves around faggies & the manner in which they have sex. Israel version.

Any Israeli who doesn’t want faggies in their businesses should prominently display those IDF girls in their undies photos.

Guess who would protest the loudest?

This is one of the upsides to the rapid growth of the ultra-orthadox community. They don’t tolerate this sh7t.

I’m not really interested in how long their “pride” is.

Undoing the work of King Asa.

"And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father. And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his father had made."

I Kings 15.11-12 (his father was Abijam or Abijah)

"Phil" then learned how to read the word "abomination" from right to left.

What the heck has a homosexual got to be proud about?

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.
