About the Jerusalem mayor’s stance regarding the pride parade

Classé dans : Judaïsme, Religion, Société — Miklos @ 16:27

People participate in the annual Gay Pride parade in central Jerusalem, under heavy security on August 3, 2017. (Miriam Alster/Flash90)

Quoting the Times of Israel: “Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, who is not running for reelection, has never attended the parade during his time leading the city, saying he did not want to offend the capital’s ultra-Orthodox population.”

Is « being gay » (or being whatever) legal in Jerusalem as everywhere else in Israel? If so, why take into account/bother about those who are « offended » by the mere existence of these people and their proper parade, to the extent of murdering one at the last parade? Doing so supports, whence justifies, their undemocratic and hateful attitude.

On the contrary, the mayor should show active support of the statement of the organizers, “In the face of the hatred and fear that has led to violence and murder, we refuse to be silent”, by marching alongside with them.
