      If we all join together under one umbrella, that being human rights and equality for all – palestinians, arab israelis, mizrahim, ethiopians, women, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, trans, does that diminish the specific issues of each group, or would strength in numbers ultimately achieve the goal of equality and freedom? Unity = strength.

        Yes, everyone needs to join together.
        Leftists dedicated to LGTBQ Rights, feminism and minorities TOGETHER with Islam dedicated to the same thing.

        How’s that strategy working in Europe?
        Why is the French Army now patrolling the streets of Paris?
        Why is Sweden now starting to draft its young men for Army service?

            Yes, Carmen everything is going fine and dandy in Europe now.
            No month-long riots in the Streets of Paris.
            No bombings and multiple gang rapes in Germany
            No nightly arson, knifing attacks and stolen police cars in Sweden.

            We won’t mention the religion of 99% of the criminals and plug our ears and sing to ourselves LALALA…LALALA… and stick our SJW paradigm.

            The French army is on the Paris Streets for the 1st time since WW2. Sweden is facing multiple rapes,

            Trouble in Europe is FAKE NEWS????
