(Tea Party 247) – It’s hard to pick the most hypocritical aspect of modern leftist ideology, but if one was forced, they’d do well to pick the left’s treatment of Islam.
This has all been on full display since the left has their very own Muslima congresswomen, the notorious Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
As the “Squad” members hide behind their protected status as Muslims to be abhorrent racist anti-Israel radicals, the left bends over backwards to defend and accommodate them, even when they promote the BDS movement which the majority of Democrats in the House voted to condemn.
But they daren’t condemn the intersectionally protected first Muslim congresswomen, would they?
So the same ideological left who adamantly supports the rights of LGBT individuals around the world finds themselves in quite a pickle when the same entities that these congresswomen do support, like the Palestinian Authority and the Palesttinian Police, commit serious himan rights abuses against LGBT individuals.
Omar and Tlaib found an easy solution: they’re just keeping mum.
PJ Media reports:
Early Monday morning, The Jerusalem Post reported that the PA and Palestine Police had outlawed LGBT activity in the West Bank and threatened to arrest members of the LGBT group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society. Al-Qaws was planning a gathering for members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group only has offices in Israel — in East Jerusalem and in Haifa.
Luay Zreikat, a spokesman for Palestine Police, said LGBT activities are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.” He added that Al-Qaws’s activities are completely “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs, especially in the city of Nablus.”
Zreikat went on to accuse “dubious parties” of working to “create discord and harm civic peace in Palestinian society.”
Palestine Police will chase those behind Al-Qaws and bring them to trial once arrested, the PA police spokesman warned. He appealed to Palestinians to report any person connected to the group to police.
The LGBT group condemned this threat as “incitement.”
“The Palestinian police announcement about our activities is very unfortunate,” Al-Qaws said in a statement. “It’s very strange that they are accusing us of being a suspicious entity working to take apart Palestinian society. Al-Qaws is a Palestinian organization that has been operating since 2001, and is carrying out educational and professional programs on sexual and gender diversity. We totally reject the attempt to create an atmosphere of prosecution and intimidation, as well threats of arrest.”
Omar and Tlaib, along with their fellow Squad members, did not respond to request for comment from PJ Media, suspiciously.

Are they really going to claim to stand for LGBT rights at home when they so happily support entities that have no interest in promoting LGBT rights?
And what about the guilt-ridden Democrats who support “The Squad” no matter what and always refuse to condemn them, can they honestly look their constituents in the eye and claim they’ll defend LGBT rights in Washington DC?
