ORTHODOX JEWISH ASSAILANT STABBED 6 PEOPLE AT JERUSALEM GAY PARADE?


Six people have been injured, two of them seriously after an Ultra-Orthodox Jewish man went on a stabbing spree at a gay pride parade in Jerusalem, police have said.
Witnesses described the terrifying scene as the knife-wielding man attacked multiple people at the march, which was attended by about 5000 revellers in the Israeli capital yesterday.
Shai Aviyor told Israel’s Channel 2: “We heard people screaming, everyone ran for cover, and there were bloodied people on the ground.”
Israeli police pounced and arrested the man within minutes. 
He was later revealed to be Yishai Shlissel an Ultra-Orthodox Jewish man who was previously jailed for 10 years over a similar attack at the annual march in 2005.
He was released from prison just three weeks ago, according to reports.
The march has long been a focus of tension between Israel’s predominantly secular majority and the ultra-Orthodox Jewish minority, who object to public displays of homosexuality.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the attacks today as “a despicable hate crime”.
He said Israel would prosecute those responsible, adding: “Freedom of individual choice is a basic value in Israel.”
Oded Fried, the head of a leading gay rights group, said the attack would not deter the movement.
Jerusalem’s annual parade is smaller and more restrained than the annual gay pride march in Tel Aviv, which was attended by some 100,000 revellers last month.
