As Tel Aviv gets ready for the gay pride parade on June 8th, the city’s sidewalks are getting a new look – rainbow colors.

The parade, which has become one of Tel Aviv’s biggest annual events, in conjunction with Tel Aviv’s growing reputation as one of the worlds top destination for gay tourism, culminates Gay Pride Week in Israel’s second most populated city.

Over 100,000 people are expected to attend the parade, which will be kicked off by by Tel Aviv’s mayor, Ron Huldai.

    Very very nice the iniciative gays israelis

  • Neat! I bet the Black Hats are foaming some much their beards have gone white from the spit and spite.

    One nice about Pride in the Holy Land the leaders of the fundy factions of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths can all agree that the only thing they hate more than each other are fags. So in that way gays bring peace to the Middle East.

    • So basically you’re imposing hatred on presumed prejudice? How do you function through so many layers of hypocritical psyche?!?

      • Ha! Ha! Yes! I totally made it up!

        In a rare alliance, senior religious leaders of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in the Holy Land joined forces Wednesday to thwart a major international gay parade scheduled to take place in Jerusalem this summer, urging the government to ban the event which they said could provoke a violent reaction from the faithful.

        Edward H you should try harder to understand stuff you talk about.

        • Ah but salvage, religious leaders have always spoken out against homosexuality. In many ways this is just a great example of the animosity that exists between the religious and secular populations of Israel. However, what concerns me more is how quickly you resort to racist dialogue in your comments.

          • *orthodox religious leaders

          • Look at you! You say “presumed prejudice” and I show you it’s not presumed but a fact and then you go “Of course it is!” as if you never went and called me “hypocritical” and implied I was a liar for suggesting such a thing!

            I assume that’s how you convince yourself that you’re never wrong about anything, just ignore facts.

            Even if they’re ON YOUR OWN SCREEN INCHES AWAY FROM YOUR EYES!

            That’s a special sort of delusion that is.

            And Ha! Ha! Yes! I’m the racist! I won’t ask you how you came to that astonishing conclusion as you clearly have trouble translating the sensory input of the world around you due to some sort of physical and/or mental malformation.

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    So Close: Israeli Judoka Loses Crown in World Cup Final, Finishes With Silver (VIDEO)

    Israeli Judoka Yarden Gerbi (63kg), 25, of Netanya, on Thursday lost the final round at the Judo World Cup, and her world title to Clarisse Agbegnenou of France, at a match held in Russia. “I have mixed feelings,” Gerbi told Israeli Army radio. But, “I shouldn’t assume that I’d win the world Judo championship twice in a row,” she admitted. Gerbi won gold in Rio De Janeiro last year. “When I made my decision, I knew it was going to [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]

    JNS.org – Having started his career playing on his family’s pots and pans, Jewish musician Billy Jonas has maintained this homemade performance ethic while spreading his messages of simple living and environmentalism to a shared home throughout the world. After beginning in the kitchen, Jonas soon moved to the music room, where he picked up the piano, guitar, and trombone. These days, the multi-talented multi-instrumentalist plays on with pretty much anything he can find, including cans, bottles buckets, and other recycled-object [...]

    JNS.org – Sara Davidson’s The December Project is a new book that should be read by all senior citizens, and by those who hope to live a long life, for it raises a question that most of us have not been taught how to answer: What should we do in that final stage of our lives? Many of us continue working past the traditional retirement age of 65, not because we need the money and not because we find the [...]
