MK Moti Yogev (Jewish Home) criticized the LGBT parade which will be held in Tel Aviv Friday.

"A Jewish family is made up of a father and a mother who naturally bring life into the world," said Yogev. "Our children are our joy, our future and our strength."

Thousands of people are expected to participate in the "Gay Pride" parade tomorrow, which will begin at Meir Park and end at Charles Clore Park, where performances will be held on the parade stage.

The police will be deployed with reinforced forces in order secure the marchers and to prevent possible disturbances to the proper conduct of the march.

In recent weeks, the police have made "warning calls" to several people who are known as liable to disrupt the parade or to harm participants.

One of these warning calls was posted on Arutz Sheva. In the recording, a Petah Tikva police intelligence officer can be heard speaking with a right-wing activist and also updating him about the details of the events at the gay pride parade.

Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir, who just this week filed a lawsuit against the Israel Police and represents the 20 right-wing activists who were warned not to protest against the incident, said in response that "This has gone too far. Israel is not Iran but a democracy and the police must internalize that. The talks that the police are having with the right-wing activists are illegal, this is harassment and a threat to freedom of speech and democracy."

"I am interested to know whether those who raise high the banner of freedom of expression and demand [the right] to demonstrate in front of the homes of civil servants have protested against a more severe violation of freedom of expression - when the police want to intimidate demonstrators who are 'guilty' of opposing the provocative parade," Ben Gvir said.
