Partial Pinkwashing
10 September 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting film. Partly financed by the government of the Zionist Entity, it has been accused of "pinkwashing" the crimes of the Entity by many gay organisations. Although it refers to both Zionist attempts to send gay Palestinians back and the homophobia they experience in Palestine, it does little to delve into the reasons for these. Nor does it address the refusal of the Entity to grant asylum to gay Palestinians. Of course they won't do so as this might imply an acknowledgement of the internationally recognised right of return for the Palestinian refugees ethnically cleansed at the Entity's inception. Additionally, little analysis is made of homophobia in Palestine, where gay sex is legal but covert. Much of the suspicion of gay men derives from many of them having been blackmailed by Zionist security services into spying for them or else their lives will be revealed to friends and family or incriminating or indecent photos will be sent to their parents. Lastly, little mention is made of the very real homophobia endemic in Zionist society. Sure, there are laws legalising homosexuality and gay quarters in Tel Aviv, but Pride events are stoned elsewhere and participants have been stabbed and attacked.

All in all, worth watching for the human interest - the gay Palestinians are uniformly sympathetic. A big fat zero for honesty and analysis, however, as regards the social and political situation.
