It Appears that Nothing Brings People Together Like Hate

Gay Pride
BBC NEWS | Middle East | Arrests at Jerusalem gay parade Not a suicide bomber, just a plain-old bomber.
An ultra-Orthodox Jewish man was arrested for planning to bomb the [Jerusalem, Gay-Pride] parade, Israeli police said.
The prevailing view is that civil rights don't apply in Jerusalem.
More than 1,000 firefighters went on strike last week, refusing to grant a licence to the parade's organisers, forcing them to cancel a rally at the end of the march.
2 years ago, 3 people were stabbed by a maniac someone who disagreed with the rights of gays.

But then religious violence is not a new thing (or limited to only one sect.) It seems the Christians, Jews and Muslims can all agree on hate.
The event, held in Jerusalem since 2001, has been denounced in the past by conservative Jewish, Christian and Muslim groups which share a view that homosexuality is an abomination.
Gays in Israel: Doing more to promote inter-denominational hating unity.

Tel Aviv's parade went off without a hitch earlier this month. About 20,000 people attended.
