Here in San Francisco, some folks skipped the farmer’s market this morning to go to City Hall and represent Israel or Palestine, depending. In an exchange that epitomizes everything, at one point the Palestine side was chanting, “FREE FREE PALESTINE” while the Israel side was chanting “NO MORE PALESTINE.” Good luck with that, you two.
But here’s what interests me. This photograph of the side cheerleading for Israel, look closely. See the rainbow flag?
Were they looking for the national DOMA protests, and figured all those very serious people with intensely dark-looking flags were representing the Yes on 8 side?
Maybe Israel took a break from bombing Gaza to take a position on gay marriage?
To paraphrase LCD Soundsystem: San Francisco, I love you, but you’re freaking me out
