Apologists for Israel push a "pinkwashing" public relations campaign that promotes a supposedly progressive record of LGBT rights to divert attention away from apartheid conditions and to conjure an image of Israel as a democratic "light unto the nations."

This ignores both Israeli homophobia/transphobia and Palestinian struggles for LGBT rights. No amount of "pinkwashing" can justify apartheid or the genocidal violence faced by Palestinians.

In Sherry Wolf's words: "It is up to activists - Jewish lesbians like myself, straight gentiles, everyone who cares about social justice - to stand up to Israel's racist policies and those who help to veil them."
