Homosexual Parade in Jerusalem This Afternoon

The “Homosexual Pride Parade” will begin 4 PM this afternoon at Jerusalem’s Independence Park, in the city center. The parade will make its way along King David St. to the Bell Garden in Jerusalem’s Komemiyut neighborhood.

Approximately 2000 police officers will secure the parade, participants and the parade route (compared with more than 10,000 officers at last year’s parade), according to Army Radio. Instead, members of the Jerusalem homosexual “Open House” will be present along the route to identify potential troublemakers.

At the same time, a massive counter-demonstration is planned in Shabbat Square by members of the haredi community and others.
