    Some more information on the actions of other arab members of the Israeli Knesset (parliment).

    Something some of you might find interesting...

    Channel 13 reported that agreement had however been reached on Ra’am’s demand to freeze an urban planning law which is seen as unfairly targeting the Arab Israeli community, and not to include any language relating the LGBTQ community in the government’s key principles.

    The Ra'am party is quite homophobic, so even as I personally am cheering for the inclusion of more Arab Israeli voices in government, this ironically means the delay of greater rights for the LGBTQ+ community.

    Considering the whole "Queers for Palestine" debacle-- well, let me just say if this news story made your brain break, you probably could afford to develop a more nuanced opinion.
