Man detained in Israel after threatening gay pride parade

A twenty year old man from the Bnei Brak area of Israel was arrested by police after he made threats against a Tel Aviv Pride Parade.

The young man, who follows Haredi Judaism, allegedly posted a message to Facebook asking if any of his friends wanted to join him for a terror attack on Tel Aviv’s upcoming Pride parade. In his post the man allegedly described the event as a “disgusting parade”.

The man later posted that he’d just written the post because he was bored. He has been interrogated by police over the statement.

While the Tel Aviv Pride Parade has not previously experienced violence, a woman was killed at Jerusalem’s Pride Parade.

In 2015 six people were injured, and teenager Shira Banki was killed, when Yishai Schlissel, attacked Jerusalem’s Pride Parade.

Schlissel was also an Israeli ultra-Orthodox Jew, who had just finished serving a ten year jail term for a violent, albeit non-fatal, attack on the same parade a decade earlier.
