I don't understand why Lucas's Israeli promos bother you so much. Yes, it may be a commercial ploy but it's a relatively inoffensive one -- hardly a "crass exploitation of human pain and suffering" -- and ultimately it's "good for Jews." Good that there is an openly Jewish gay sex symbol. And good that Israel is getting some positive publicity for its (surprisingly) enlightened policies on gay rights, especially in the military.

Maybe you're too close to this issue. For many non-Jewish gay men like myself, the Israeli gay scene is the ONLY reason we have to continue to support that country. It gives me hope that someday Israelis will also find it in themselves to see their Arab neighbors as full-fledged human beings.
