US Embassy in Tel Aviv Makes History by Putting Homosexual Flag Under the American Flag
By Julio Severo
“For the first time in history,” said a Facebook post from U.S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro, “the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv has raised the Pride flag together with our American flag.”
A photo attached to the social media announcement shows the homosexual flag flying directly beneath the American flag, a bold statement in a primarily Jewish and Muslim part of the world.
In spite of its Christian cultural roots, the United States has shunned from defending Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Even U.S. conservative Christian presidents avoided to declare it. Yet, the U.S. government under Barack Obama has made homosexuality one of their top foreign policy concerns, working hard, through its embassies, to give preference to homosexuality.
