The world has entered its third major intifada, an uprising of global magnitude. Queer rebel fighters in the Muslim world frustrated with the failures of past heterosexual leaders rise and begin a long battle to overthrow American and European intervention in the region, achieving what many in the past have failed to do. While the successes of the revolution continue to be lauded, its losses have been painfully felt.
