Truth In Advertising: "Queers Against Israeli Apartheid" need a new name

Since Israel does not have racial segregation and has free elections for all its citizens, regardless of ethnic and religious status, and a free press with an independent judiciary, it obviously doesn't meet the conditions of racial segregation and disenfranchisement that characterized Apartheid-era South Africa,

"Apartheid" is an inflammatory term being falsely applied to Israel by dishonest, politically and ideologically motivated partisans to motivate and inflame hatred.

But it's false, so in the spirit of Truth in Advertising, "Queers Against Israeli Apartheid" should rename themselves to reflect the reality of what they are about.

The National Post published some letters to the editor that included some suggestions.

The winner so far:  Hamasexuals.

Re: The Man/Lady Picture

The manlady in the picture needs something to balance out his/her blue shoes with the rest of her/his outfit. My suggestion is a broach because it can really dress up an outfit and it is an accessory that is versatile for example:

“For a glamorous outfit, attach the brooch on a hat or On the other hand, if you love wearing scarves as head wraps, just pin the brooch on the side” – from How to Wear A Broach

I find it impossible to take them seriously, frankly.

Do they understand what tends to happen to homosexuals in countries like Syria, Lebanon and Iran?

Evidently not. Either that, or they just don't care because they're safe in Canada.
