“To all those involved, sinners in spirit, and whoever helps and protects them, may they feel a curse on their souls, may it plague them and may evil pursue them; they will not be requitted of their transgressions from heavenly judgment.” – Orthodox Jews placing a curse upon Jerusalem Pride.
Ooh, everybody scared now?
Police are still debating allowing the June 21st event to take place. Last year’s Jerusalem Pride was delayed, then cancelled, then held in a sports stadium, rather than risk a march through protesters. Tel Aviv held its pride event last week with little incident.
NOTE: The above linked Orthodox Jews are from the Eda Haredit sect, which Little David advises me are a group that does not recognize the state of Israel, because it has a secular government. Obviously, they do not represent all Orthodox Jews.
