Six stabbed at Jerusalem Pride

At least six people were stabbed today at Jerusalemís Pride parade. One woman is in critical condition.

The person accused is a heredi, or Orthodox, man who staged a similar attack at Jerusalem Pride in 2005. He was recently released from prison.

While Pride in secular Tel Aviv in June attracts about 200,000 people annually, Pride in more religious Jerusalem remains controversial. But thousands of people participated in this yearís march that had heavy police protection.

Police quickly wrestled the man down, according to a report in HaAretz.

1. He was released only days (?) ago.

It shows the level of hatred he has and how it manifests into violence. It serves as a reminder that gays are reviled the world over and to different extents. Some even further the damage done by this psychopath to further their own bigoted agenda, at the expense of gays; reminding us, even in places where we are supposedly 'safe', we really aren't and are just...well, do I really need to say the words?
