Gay couple abused while holding hands in Jerusalem (VIDEO)

Joseph McCormick August 9, 2015

A social experiment where a gay couple holds hands in public has been recreated in Jerusalem, with shocking results.

Similar to videos created in Ukraine and Russia, and shows the men enduring vile abuse.

As they walk down the street, dozens of people look, and others make homophobic comments.

This video comes just two weeks after six people were stabbed at a Pride parade in the city, which left one 16-year-old dead.

Speaking on behalf of Hadassah hospital, Hadar Elboim last week said 16-year-old Shira Banki had succumbed to the wounds she sustained in the attack at the Pride event.

Shira was among six people wounded on Thursday by Yishai Schlissel, who went on a stabbing rampage during Jerusalem’s Pride parade.

Schlissel was released four weeks ago after serving 10 years in prison for a previous attack at the same parade in 2005.
