University Letter Says Palestine Can Only Be Free As A Result Of "Queer Justice"


An antisemitic letter, since taken down, posted by the Latina/Latino Studies Department at the University of Illinois, accuses Israel of “genocide” and goes on to state: “We know a free Palestine is only possible through queer, racial, gender, reproductive, and environmental justice.” Huh? You know this how?

The truth is, in Palestinian society, “queer justice” is throwing gays and lesbians off a rooftop. Homosexuals are persona non grata, routinely persecuted and murdered. Ironically, Israel is the only place in the Middle East where homosexuals are safe.

Most Muslim societies are also wildly misogynistic, so “gender justice” is virtually non-existent. Muslim women are considered inferior to men in every way. Honor killings of females who have supposedly “dishonored the family” are common. The “dishonor” can come from something as trivial as not wearing a hijab properly or having a Christian boyfriend.

How about “racial justice?” Not so much. Arabs tend to consider themselves superior to Blacks. Muhammad himself bought and sold slaves. Arabs conducted the largest and longest lasting of all the African slave trades, with tens of millions of victims. (Trade that was ultimately stopped by the British.)

Reproductive justice? Certainly not as the progressives at the Latina/Latino Studies Department at the University of Illinois would define it. Environmental justice? Sure. Now tell me the one about the Three bears.

No one with an I.Q. greater than that of a tree frog’s would look to Palestine—or any Muslim state—for “queer, racial, gender, reproductive, or environmental justice.” All of these can be found, to one degree or another, in Israel.

Associating Palestine with queer justice is insane. “Queers for Palestine” is akin to “Jews for the Third Reich.”

Thomas Jefferson stated: “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” This observation is true, and applies to states and other groups of people, as well. And it doesn’t bode well for the Latina/Latino Studies Department at the University of Illinois, Palestine itself…or the United States of America.
