    ‘This is a victory for the Isreali community as a whole, not just for one sector’ just there i was moved to tears..!! They want to have children, to them its a thing of joy to raise and have kids.. WHATS WRONG WITH THAT??? Equality cannot be debated, nobody is happy feeling unequal.. Victory Indeed.. I hope its put to law immediately…

    Just some background info: Messrs. Pinkas and Arad are responsible for getting same-sex marriages recognized by Israel. Mr. Pinkas married Mr. Arad in 2005 in Canada in order to get Israel to recognize his marriage. The Supreme Court ruled in their favor, forcing the Interior Ministry to recognize all same-sex marriages or partnerships performed abroad in territories where legal.

    So Mr. Pinkas, who is also a member of Tel Aviv-Jaffa City Council and started the LGBT community center in Tel Aviv, is quite a significant actor in LGBT rights and history in Israel.
