Israel to use Gay Pride Parade for political propaganda

22 February 2014

Media Release:

Israeli Embassy to use Gay Pride Parade for political propaganda

The Israeli Embassy has announced it will be taking part in the Gay Pride Parade today in Auckland.

“…the Embassy of Israel will be participating in Auckland’s annual Gay Parade this Saturday the 22nd of February”

It’s obvious from this website that this is part of a global political propaganda offensive to try to improve Israel's image internationally. They want to take attention away from Israel's brutal and illegal occupation of Palestinian land and its apartheid policies towards Palestinians living in Israel.

Taking part in this Parade is the sort of activity which the apartheid regime of South Africa engaged in to improve its image when international sanctions started to bite.

The Israeli Embassy is little more than a propaganda centre for Israeli apartheid – another reason it should be closed by the government.
