Gay People to Blame for Hezbollah Attacks

As I've mentioned before, the business of opposing a planned Gay Pride march in Jerusalem is one of the few topics which generate widespread agreement between religious groups in that city, groups which are otherwise generally at each others' throats. The imams never wanted the march; both the Orthodox and the Catholic clergy didn't either; nor most of the rabbis. Indeed one rabbi saw the Hezbollah attacks on Israel as a direct consequence of the planned parade.

The "World Pride" festival was scheduled to take place in Jerusalem in August. All the religious groups opposed it.
