In Jerusalem, gay pride is conservative too


A sigh of relief was released by Israeli Police’s top brass after the Gay Pride and Tolerance Parade in Jerusalem on June 1 ended without disturbances. Police estimated that roughly 10,000 people attended, with 2,000 Israel Police and Israel Border Police personal securing the event. Former Prime Minister and current leader of the Knesset opposition, Yair Lapid, and former IDF Chief-of-Staff, Benny Gantz, spoke briefly at the event. The U.S. Ambassador to Israel, Tom Nides, was in attendance as well.
