    Gay activists condemn the only country which doesn't murder them

    From news article:

    Gay activists apparently don't know how to tell their friends from their foes. In a region where only one country in the world doesn't execute gays, gay activists have chosen that country to boycott. Yes, of course,
    it's Israel
    . Ronn Torossian got it right:
    It seems that Jew-haters will always find a reason to hate the Jewish state, and will use something asinine to mask that hatred. Peter Tatchell, a leading gay activist, signed a letter this week criticizing Israel for “pinkwashing,trying to use the acceptance of LGBTs (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community) as a “smokescreen” of supposed human rights violations of the Palestinians. In a recent letter to the media, activists from the Gay Liberation Front, Stop Clause 28, and others, stated support for the Palestinian “boycott, divestment and sanctions” campaign against Israel. It added that it is “ironic” that Israel, “in an attempt to gain a veneer of respectability by promoting itself as a liberal,” has grown tolerant towards gay people while the “oppressive regime routinely violates human rights.” So, Israel, the sole country in the Middle East which supports gay rights, is also boycotted by the gay activist community.

    At some point you have to say to people that if they're going to consistently advocate for their own destruction then they're on their own.

    Israel will now have to be on its guard for suicide bummers.

    Re: Gay activists condemn the only country which doesn't murder them

    Since I'm new here, and do not have authority to post a new thread, it seems here is the most appropriate place I can post. I was wondering: How long does it take before a bill becomes law in Israel? My understanding is first, a bill is brought before a committee, if it receives support here, it then is taken to a 1st hearing in the Knesset, if successful here, it then is taken to a 2nd hearing in the Knesset, if successful here, it is then taken to a 3rd and final hearing of the Knesset where it then instantly becomes law.

    So my question is, how long between the various stages, and where can I find this information out?

    Would appreciate any responses.
    Thanks.
    A
