We pray and hope that it will be stopped--period!
Parade is scheduled for November 10. Counter demonstrations and protests are
being organised. Police might stop everything for security reasons.
In July Israel’s chief Sephardic rabbi, Shlomo Amar, had called on Benedict XVI for help to stop Gay pride celebrations in Jerusalem.
In his letter, Rabbi Amar had said such an event would “violate and humiliate” the Holy City.
Israel’s chief Ashkenazi rabbi, Yona Metzger, had also demanded that the “parade in the Holy City of Jerusalem be cancelled.”
In recent days, survey results released during a meeting of the Knesset’s Internal Affairs Committee indicated that among secular Jews, 63 per cent oppose the parade; 81 per cent of conservative Jews are opposed, 99 per cent of National Religious are opposed; 100 per cent of Orthodox are opposed; and 92 per cent of Arab Muslims and Christians are opposed.
