    This doesn’t make a whole lot of sense – your own previous articles talked about the 12 other people who were injured, and it was described as a “slaughterhouse”. If the intention was to murder (a), but they actually killed (b) and (c), and in the process shot 12 others, then they have to be the most inept assassins in the history of mankind. I don’t believe this story coming from the Israeli police, I need a lot more convincing. Other reports also seem to think the explanation is incredulous.

    1. The motive was some sort of revenge. There’s a gag order in place, so the full details are not available yet.

      Why would the Israeli police make up a story 4 years later?

      It’s a pity the gay community who were so quick to deride Israel as a hateful country, can’t accept that this was a criminal act and that all their words of hatred 4 years ago were unjustified.

      Meanwhile in Israel

      Check out the videos. One gay man from Holland says Israel is more welcoming for homosexuals than Amsterdam.

    2. Obviously you don’t know anything about crime. People who want revenge on a single person will often kill or injure others as a distraction so that it doesn’t look like that individual was targeted. In this case they obviously wanted to make it look like a homophobic crime. Killing one person would not have done that.

      The fact that there are other anti-Israel conspiracy theorists out there doesn’t justify your own ignorant conspiracies which could have been refuted with basic research if your intent was anything other than to bash Israel.

      When the shooting happened, you said that it was homophobia without any proof. When the complicated investigation dragged on you said that Israel just didn’t care about LGBT people despite the massive resources that the police put on the case. And then finally when the crime is solved you still claim based on nothing more than your own hatred and ignorance that it is still homophobia.

    He went on to say “And Arabs in the Occupied Territories are all very happy, contented, and allowed full rights and freedom to travel throughout Israel!”. In another universe.

    1. I know that you’re trolling but I’m going to respond anyway:

      There are millions of Arabs living happily in Israel. Arab’s occupy every niche of Israeli society all the way up to parliament and the high-courts. They have far more rights than Arabs in any other Arab land do (not to mention Jews and Christians who live in Arab lands).

      On the other hand Jews are not allowed to live in Palestinian lands. Mahmoud Abbas told the Arab League in 2010 and 2011 that he wouldn’t allow a single Jew to live in Palestine. And Palestinian who sell land to Jews are killed by the Palestinian Authority WITHOUT trial.

      So who are the real bigots? It’s the Palestinans who want a Judenrein state, and the hypcrites like yourself who support their quest.

        Not trolling. I don’t care for either side in the Middle East because both are using “My grandfather suffered under X’s fathers so I will kill X’s children to get revenge”.
        If you want to study the recent history of the Middle east you’ll find that there’s plenty of blame to spread around, from the Ottoman Turks, via the British Mandate, through the Nazi deportation of European Jews to Palestine, across Militant European Zionists and Arab Nationalists and Blah Blah Blah….. A pox on both their houses. And on yours.

        1. “the Nazi deportation of European Jews to Palestine”? In what alternate universe do you reside? The Nazis did nothing of the sort. They exterminated them en masse.
