Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm ready to say "good," because the banning will draw considerably more attention to the situation in Israel than a simple sign in front of a marching group introducing, Queers Against Israeli Apartheid.
In response, I would expect to see hundreds of signs along the parade route, saying "Israeli Apartheid," giving the concept greater exposure. No organization, just as no government agency, can ban free speech.

I only occasionally focus intently on the I/P issue, but when I've come back to it in recent weeks, after 6 months or a year on other stuff, the Israeli stance seems to have jumped very far into a paranoid world view that has little connection to reality. And yet, no matter how fantastical, paranoid about Arabs and Likudnikian, nearly all mainstream American and apparently Canadian politicians give it 100%++ support.
