    He can start the fight against religious bigotry by legalising civil marriage for straight and gay people. It is disgusting that civil marriage is illegal in Israel – for straight people as well as gay

  2. This visit (and his comments) from the PM are very welcome but there is still MUCH more needing to be done.

    I hope Israel will now start to increase protection and rights for gay people as much as possible as quickly as possible. This attack was a “wake up call” of the extreme homophobia that still exists in all societies.

    That will be the greatest punishment for this killer – to know that his attempts to break us actually backfired and resulted in increased support/help for us.

  3. At least he visited which is more than our Australian Prime Minister would do!
