“Barcelona gay leaders say humiliated at Israeli airport”
This is a headline that can be read at http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/barcelona-gay-leaders-say-humiliated-at-israeli-airport-1.368505
I have never spoken to David Martí but I have seen him in Pride Barcelona and I have watched him in some videos last years because he is the one behind Pride Barcelona. It is true that in my blog I do not speak very well about Pride Barcelona but I am just critizising the commercial side of these prides. My words are not against Pride Barcelona in particular let alone David Martí! I just do not like the commercialization of gay rights!
Anyway, some minutes ago I was also writing a post about Tel Aviv as the guest of Pride Barcelona and now I have read this news. I do not know yet if the news have reached the Catalan media so I am going to write a post about this incident in Catalan now.
It seems that the treatment of David Martí and his partner were not nice but I think that when you think about Israel you always must think about security, security and security!
Some decades ago I also got a very hard control in Switzerland and I have never complaint!
I hope David Martí tells us more about the incident! He has a very impressive look and I wonder if the people at the airport confused his look – quite typical in the lgbt community! – with the look of a dangerous man!
Let me end by sending thousands of kisses to the lgbt community in Israel. I LOVE DANA INTERNATIONAL!
