Violence erupts at Jerusalem Gay Pride

Violence erupts at Jerusalem Gay Pride After attempts to stop it from happening, the Gay Pride parade in Jerusalem took place on Thursday and an ultra-Orthodox Jew stabbed and wounded two or three marchers. Opponents tried to stop the march by throwing a stink bomb at the starting point, but several thousand participants paraded through the center of Jerusalem anyway, celebrating, braving shouts and insults. As the parade neared a main downtown intersection, the attacker jumped into the first group of marchers and stabbed a middle-aged man marching with his two daughters, apparently seriously wounded.�
