Benjamin Netanyahu — the former Israeli prime minister who was recently elected as the chairman of the majority Likud party within his country’s legislature, the Knesset — has promised not to allow legislators to roll back LGBTQ rights in the country. “There will be no harm to pride parades nor to the status-quo on LGBTQ rights,” he said in a meeting last Friday, Haaretz reported. Observers worried that the conservative political leader would try to create a coalition of anti-LGBTQ lawmakers and curry their favor by allowing them to follow through on their pledges to dismantle LGBTQ rights.
