Levlion saidI don't understand how there's that much freedom in Israel but in MOSKVA people can't march for more than ten minutes without being stopped by police.....Of all places.....Israel? Really?
And how exactly does the lack of LGBT rights in Russia relate to people meeting up for pride in Israel?
I think many people, obviously who have never been to Israel, have a lot of misconceptions.
For example, that it's a religious Jewish state, with everyone wearing "black" outfits and peyos.
I think only about 15% are orthodox religious.
Also keep in mind that Jews tend to be liberal.
In the US, 70-75% of Jews vote Democratic.
While Israel lacks civil marriage, it does recognize marriages performed abroad (including gay marriages) and it also recognizes common-law marriage between same-sex couples.
For those who haven't been, other than the climate, Israel (outside of some neighborhoods in Jerusalem or Bnei Barak) could be confused for a Western European country.
