JNS.org – An estimated 200,000 people—including 30,000 tourists—participated in Tel Aviv’s gay pride parade on Friday, according to the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

This year’s parade began at noon with a moment of silence for 16-year-old Shira Banki, who was stabbed to death by a haredi man at Jerusalem’s gay pride parade last year, and for the victims of the 2009 shooting attack at the Bar Noar LGBT youth club in Tel Aviv.

The 2016 Tel Aviv parade, titled “Women for Change,” highlighted women in the LGBT community and their struggle for equal rights. The parade was launched by Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai, who urged Israeli lawmakers attending the event to promote legislation to allow marriage and parenting equality, and promised that Tel Aviv will always be a city of tolerance and democracy that respects all minorities.

  • This event is a political trap! Women in Israel have equal rights! Second gays issue is a known matter from primordial times. The killing of Shira Banki is a crime; it is unacceptable that this event did take place in Israel. In fact gay parades are a provocative event which must man be aware about. The terrifying scary problem is that made – man gay, lesbians and pedophiles who were abused in childhood in foreign stats institutions under governments ideology planning were the abused people are targeted into becoming political activists been used as agents to be send worldwide targeting naïve people into becoming political activist against their own country man. I have evidence about Norwegians gays, lesbians and pedophiles that did target naïve people in Thailand, China, Egypt, Tunis, Israel, and Ghana. In fact a politician father was targeted by lesbian white women who went on targeting another man. Man – made gays and lesbians is a disease which is difficult to control because man – made abused people looks normal who can intellectually fight for something whish is meaningless as women rights who actually exist in Israel. Gays and lesbians clubs are targeted by agents injecting political bias to drive countries into political disorders. Naturally born Gays and lesbians is a private issue which must have the same equal rights as all citizens! Israel must watch out very carefully the gay and lesbians clubs, not because they are lesbians and gays, but for the security of the stat where foreign man – made gays and lesbians targeting Jews gays and lesbians pushed into political biases to create political and civil disorder pushing the people masses minds into been busy with no important matters in mind forgetting the real problems of for ensample poverty, employment, and stat financial corruptions.
