    Just waiting for the Pride marches in Nablus or Ramallah or Gaza City or Damascus or Beirut or Tehran or……..

      So there were 2000 gay people to 1000 police? Still a better ratio than the secret east end gay pride march organised this year in Tower Hamlets. The ratio there was 30 gay people to 21 police (+ police helicopter). And the march had to be organised in secret, after IMAAN and Rainbow Hamlets destroyed a much bigger march.

      I guess this shows that being gay in Jerusalem is less dangerous than in Tower Hamlets. When I was in Jerusalem this year, it seemed far less islamic than parts of London.

      Looks like London needs the IDF.

  2. I wish the reporting on this had included some statements from attendees of the pride celebration – queer and/or allied Israelis who were moved/inspired by the gathering. The focus was on the haters, not on the sense of community.
    But I’m glad you’re reporting on it at all.
    Namaste, Lee
