Municipality Removes Pride Banner from U.S. Embassy

"It is simply absurd that the Deputy Mayor, Arieh King [1], the main Kahanist [2] of Jerusalem does not have anything more interesting to do with his life than to try to cause a diplomatic incident with the United States, just because the embassy hung a pride flag in honor Pride month (yes, he sent inspectors to remove it).

Arieh, listen well. The LGBTQ community in Jerusalem is here to stay. It is unbelievable that diplomats are able to see reality in Jerusalem better than the deputy mayor. Maybe, you wipe the hatred from your eyes and clear the Kahanism out of your mind – you will also be able to see this reality.

The best response to Kahanism is to attend the Pride rally on Sunday as part of Pride and Tolerance Events 2020 // Open House [1] in Jerusalem
