    Holiness? Killing each other in the names of their various gods and they bleat about families
    and “holiness”? Their hypocrisy is astounding.

    Before the Israel-bashers start squealing with glee over the bad press, I’d like to point out that Israel is the ONLY country in the Middle East that actually has pride parades. They occur in Tel Aviv without incident.

    Jerusalem is a magnet for foul-smelling religious fundamentalists – Jewish or otherwise – and the rabid bigotry coming from the far-right ultra-Orthodox does not accurately reflect Israel’s attitudes towards LGBT people.

    Fun fact of the day: same-sex marriages that occur outside of Israel are recognized in Israel.

    Israel. Perfect? No. Better than any other place in the Middle East? Yes, by leaps and bounds.

    The city of Jerusalem is only rocks and dirt without people of compassion in it.
    Perhaps holy history did happen there a very very long time ago. We do know for sure that a lot of blood has been spilled by people that think they know the “truth”. How sad to think about all the crusades and all the lives ruined by them. The catholic patriarch should be apologizing about the Crusades instead of scolding GBLT pride.

    The parade, which was held in Jerusalem on Thursday, drew more than 3,000 participants. There was no sign of the donkey cut-outs the city’s ultra-Orthodox deputy mayor, Rabbi Yitzhak Pindrus, was allowed to bring to the march after his initial plan to march 50 donkeys through the streets in protest of the parade was rejected by police.
