Keffiyeh Kisses…

Eurovision Song Contest 2024.

Pro-Palestinian Anti-Israel marches outside the venue in Malmo…

…claiming to be for peace and love, but cannot see peace flags there.

But we see 2 women, wearing Keffiyeh, kissing each other.

That is absolutely great and welcome.

We just would like to know if they actually understand what they are doing?

Wearing Keffiyeh and kissing each other?

Really? Is that real?

And then, we hear Eurovision contestants (i.e. from Ireland, Greece, Netherlands, etc.) complaining about Israel inclusion, whilst they are all standing for their non-binary identities…?

Are they aware that Israel is the only country in the Middle-East where they would actually be allowed to exist?

Are they aware that wearing the Keffiyeh, would actually mean being anti-gay as well? Or are they missing that little detail?

Go on, keep having your Keffiyeh kisses; again, we fully welcome that.

But please “woke” up.
