Shas Party Condemns Attack on Homosexual Club

The Shas religious party condemned Saturday night’s attack on a club of homosexuals. “Murder, understandably, is against the Torah way. Any attack is against the religion of Israel,” the Shas party said in a statement.

Two months ago, a lawyer representing the Shas party and other public officials appealed to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Tel Aviv’s Mayor Ron Huldai to cancel a homosexual festival in Tel Aviv due to its overt sexual messages.
