Support for gays, Hamas at NY's LGBT Center sparks fury

Analysis: Hamas's violent campaign against gays airbrushed out of controversy as Queers Against Israeli Apartheid unlawfully occupy center.

The Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QAIA) group unlawfully occupied New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center last week, to protest its refusal to rent space to the fiercely anti-Israel group. Another takeover of the 28-year-old center is slated for next month.

“The QAIA had a sit-in at the center this past week in violation of center policy. It was very small. We are not permitting them to meet and the moratorium remains in place,” Cindi Creager, director of communications and marketing at the center, told The Jerusalem Post on Saturday.
