It’s official: the gay parade is off, replaced by a closed event at Hebrew University’s Givat Ram stadium. Yediot Acharonot reports that members of the charedi community played an active role in brokering this compromise, with meetings held at the offices of Dudi Zilbershlag, founder of the Meir Panim aid organization.

This is the third time that the parade has been canceled due to other demands on police resources, the latter two having been entirely unforeseeable. Mere coincidence? You decide.

    It was but it’s really of almost no relevance to the homosexual issue… unless you prefer this to be a thread on incidents of ‘Chareidi bad behavior’.

    The behavior of certain members of the Charedi community was absolutely shameful.
