Jerusalem Pride organizers reject police proposal to ID participants


The organizers of the Jerusalem Pride parade said Monday that they would not accept a police proposal to ID participants upon their entrance at next week’s demonstration. “The demand for IDs at the parade raises serious concerns about privacy, even if the intentions are good,” the Jerusalem Open House — an LGBT rights group in the nation’s capital — said in a statement, referring to authorities’ efforts to ensure a safe rally four years after 16-year-old participant Shira Banki was stabbed to death by an ultra-Orthodox anti-gay extremist. “No one will scare us and no one will prevent us from marching,” the Open House statement added.
