Rutgers professor claims anyone pointing out that gay people are harshly persecuted in Palestine are the ‘homophobic’ ones


A Rutgers University professor went to great lengths to attempt to fabricate a paper-thin defense of Palestine being extremely harsh towards LGBTQ individuals.

In the name of intersectionality, Maya Mikdashi attempted to deflect any criticism towards Palestine’s proven agenda against any and all LGBTQ rights. The progressive professor instead cried that anyone pointing out the fact that gay people are persecuted in Palestine are the actual ones who are “homophobic.”

Mikdashi is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University in New Jersey.

The professor has a focus on “law, citizenship, secularity, religious conversion, sexual difference, and the war on terror.”

Mikdashi wrote in 2016: “The United States is in the midst of an election cycle where bigotry, racism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-immigration, Islamophobia, gun-love, imperial hubris, and sexism are political platforms — and political and national culture is not something one can ‘opt out’ or into depending on ethnicity, race, religion, sex, gender, or even ‘free will.'”

However, Mikdashi will devotedly defend Hamas against anyone who points out the fact that Palestine is fanatically against LGBTQ rights.

According to Equaldex, Palestine ranks 192 out of 197 countries in public opinion about legal rights and freedoms for LGBTQ+ people.

The Williams Institute – a UCLA think tank devoted to gender studies – ranked Palestine 130 out of 175 countries in regards to “social acceptance of LGBTQIA people.”

On March 20, Mikdashi spoke at an event titled: “Palestine is a Feminist and Queer Anti-Imperialist Abolition Struggle.”
