A protest of an Israeli group at the Task Force's Creating Change Conference in Chicago was not the safe place it was promised to be, but dangerous and intimidating and subject to mob rule, writes Michael Lucas.


Israel is the only country in the region where gay people live openly, equally, with all the rights and protections of an enlightened society. Yet this is the country these radicals focus on. Have they ever protested outside the embassy of Saudi Arabia, where homosexuality is outlawed and gays are flogged, imprisoned, and executed? Have they organized a demonstration outside the embassy of Iran, where gays are hanged for the crime of “consensual sodomy”? Did they show up to decry Russia’s new anti-gay law in 2013? Do they attempt to derail events connected to countries that oppress gays?
