$5,000 reward offered for murder of World Pride participants

Haaretz reports,

A flyer opposing the upcoming international gay pride parade in Jerusalem was distributed in Jerusalem mailboxes on Tuesday.
Among other things, the flyer offers a NIS 20,000 reward for the murder of a parade participant. Following reports on the flyer’s contents, the police launched a criminal investigation.
[…] A source in the ultra-Orthodox community said that all the signs point to the flyer having come out of the extreme right-wing community in the West Bank.

ynet has a scan of the flyer here. More at JPost. See also Tzvi Graetz’s ynet op-ed subtitled, “I wasn’t planning to take part in the Gay Pride parade until Orthodx rabbis started desecrating God’s name.”

  1. Ah yes, Gay Pride…blocks of near-naked men, simulating s&m, anal sex and ejaculation, by watering crowds of mothers, fathers and their children with hoses protruding between their legs. If nothing else, Gay Pride in Jerusalem shows how low we’ve ALL fallen…how utterly vacuous our culture is…when a parade that celebrates sodomy (yes, yes and cunnalingus) is allowed to pass through one of the holiest cities in the world. My guess is the organizers liked the “holy” part. Ok…anal references are over.
    No one should have to die though. Some well thought out civil disobedience, say 10 000 Hassidim barricading the route of the parade, should do the trick.

  2. Amit,
    In a Toronto daily, a gay man wrote an editorial describing the very things I wrote as his justification for not attending a gay pride event. Gay pride is the only “family oriented” activity, which takes place during the day, with overt sexual overtones.
    Gay bashing…troll-like behavior….guess you’ve censored a good portion of our holy books, huh Amit? Man, doesn’t it suck that our tradition doesn’t mesh well with hipster credo and ethics. I mean, how’s a Jew gonna get play with so much gay bashing?

  3. Ah yes because every day I get to watch straight people fawn all over themselves in drunkenness in the streets of NY and kiss and f*ck in public but apparently that never seems to make it into every other comment thread that is predominantly about straight people.
    Yes, I know we’re sexy, but damn yall, give it up already–if you want us to corner the sex market to appease your own desires, you can do that, but something new and creative please!!! Because I know yall have sex too!
    Thanks!

  4. The gay pride parade wouldn’t nearly be as offensive if it wasn’t an obvious effort to get back at Judaism for putting the meme in this world that homosexual behaviour is frowned upon.

  5. I’m confused…
    All the stuff just descibed in that first comment….is there something wrong with that stuff?
    It sounds a lot better than all of the sexual repression you get in a yeshiva.
    Is healthy sexual expression not holy?

    You mean parent’s taking their kids to see simulated S&M and anal sex on a sunny afternoon…nah, nothing. All very healthy and normal. Actually, the level of addiction, suicidality and depression within the gay community hints to truck loads of healthy living.

  7. I can’t possibly imagine what would lead to depression in the gay community. All of the support and acceptance must be getting them down.

  8. “I can’t possibly imagine what would lead to depression in the gay community. All of the support and acceptance must be getting them down. ”
    How about the stronghold of sexual liberalism called california?
    Do you have any idea what male homosexuals mean when they talk about “the gift” that they’re “passing on”. Look it up, then we’ll talk about healthy sexual expression.
