IDF protects gay Palestinian man by granting visa

Tuesday, March 25, 2008 |  by Staff Writer

The man had applied years ago for an Israeli visa in order to live with his Israeli lover of eight years in Tel Aviv.

Realizing that acquiring such a visa via normal channels could take many more years, the Palestinian man turned to an IDF commander responsible for civil administration in the area and reported repeated threats to his life ever since his family discovered he was homosexual and in a relationship with an Israeli Jew.
