Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat was lambasted by left-wing politicians Wednesday as insensitive and biased after announcing that he will not attend Thursday’s Jerusalem’s Gay Pride Parade because it is damaging to the ultra-Orthodox and right-wing sectors’ sensibilities.

 

In an interview with Yedioth Ahronoth, Barkat – who has a largely right-wing and religious municipal coalition, and recently joined Likud – stated: “I won’t march because I don’t want to be part of the harm to the ultra-Orthodox public and the Religious-Zionist public.

 

“Tolerance is not just letting people march; it’s also looking for the way to get what you want without offending others opinions, or others feelings. In Jerusalem, there’s a large population who has a really hard time with the parade.”
