A special meeting of the Jerusalem City Council to mark the capital’s unification in 1967 devolved into a series of statements questioning the rights of LGBTQ people in the city, with a deputy mayor and council member suggesting that such people are mentally ill. Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion, who was chairing the meeting, drew criticism for not immediately silencing his deputy Aryeh King and council member Yonatan Yosef, Channel 12 reported Monday. A small number of LGBTQ members and their supporters gathered to hold a protest against Yosef outside City Hall.
