Hoya says, “Funny how they support rights for gays, women, minorities and all religions…and then support palestinians who dont support any of that.” Hate to break it to you hoya hasbara but last I checked, Israel is not the country it purports to be on any of these issues. Let’s take Palestinians out of the equation and just look at Israel with relevant examples on these issues. Don’t start with your tirade on other people and countries and how THEY treat their own without critiquing oneself. Here’s what a quick google search found.
– Retired lawyer sues Israeli airline after she was asked to move seat. In 2016.
“Rabinowitz and IRAC are seeking 50,000 shekels (£9,200) in damages and wants EL Al to publish clear staff guidelines “concerning their obligation to act in an egalitarian manner, including emphasising to the company’s aircrews that they must defend women’s rights to sit in their allocated seat, and clarifying to flight attendants that they may not acquiesce to requests by passengers wishing to change places purely for reasons of gender”.

“And then I think: Wait a minute — that’s not Jewish. That’s not okay. There’s no such thing in Jewish law. Why should I help a bizarre and degrading custom that imposes restrictions on me? So I stay in my seat, put on earphones and try to be polite and agreeable — to be invisible.

It was humiliating and insulting,” the complainant told the court.

“In Israel there is no civil marriage, and even the idea of a so-called civil union as an alternative has dissipated, although in the Knesset there is (still) a secular majority that could bring about a change. Apparently there is no real political will for such a step. And in a country where even marriage between members of different religions doesn’t exist, it’s somewhat difficult to imagine the marriage of two people of the same sex.”

– Why Is Israel’s Red Cross Rejecting Ethiopian Blood? 2013.
“MDA officials rejected her blood on the grounds that it was “the special kind of Jewish-Ethiopian blood,” which Health Ministry directives prohibit them from using for fear of spreading HIV. Tamano-Shata explained that she was born in Ethiopia but raised in Israel from the age of three. It made no difference. If she wanted, she could donate blood, but her donation would be frozen and never used.”
