The Israel/Palestine conflict is a fraught issue in the American LGBT community, but I don't think we've discussed it here on Bilerico to any extent.
Here's a video interview xtra (Canada's fag rag) put out with Canadian filmmaker John Greyson, who pulled his documentary Fig Trees from the Tel Aviv International LGBT Film Festival to protest Israel's actions in Palestine. Some of the comments were unfortunate on the video, assuming that whichever side is more pro-gay is the one queers have to support, as if decades-old, bloody conflict is that simple.
Complicating the issue for Americans should be the fact that the far-right has latched on to Israel's side as well to appease the eschatology crowd, a group of people who think that the End Times won't happen until Israel is unified. This situation has made some strange bedfellows in America, with the entire Washington political and media establishments, the Religious Right, the neocons, and many LGBT people on one side, with most of the left on the other and America generally divided. Canadians are generally more inclined to agree with the American left on this issue.
Video's after the jump. What do you all think?
