Homosexuals Arrested for Murder Originally Pinned on Orthodox

In 1995, “everyone” knew settlers murdered Rabin. The “settler” Yigal Amir was from the Haifa area. Four years ago, gays accused Haredi gay-haters for killing three homosexuals. Now police say, “Not so.”
A suspect was picked up in B'nei B'rak on Wednesday.

A suspect was picked up in B'nei B'rak on Wednesday.

Police arrests of four suspects in the murder of three homosexual youth in 2009 disproves the former libel that Haredim, or possibly other Orthodox Jews, carried out the murders as a hate crime.

Following the arrest of three Jewish suspects Wednesday, police have arrested a fourth man who is a “prominent member” in the homosexual and lesbian community. He was not necessarily involved in the murder, but he possessed information concerning the identity of the murdered at the “BarNoar” center in Tel Aviv, police said.

If the police department’s conclusions are correct, it is clear the murders were not a hate crime against homosexuals, and it appears the motives were personal vengeance. Conceivably, the suspects could be orthodox, but they clearly did not kill out of hate for homosexuals.

The real hate is against orthodox and Haredi Jews.

The homosexual community protested the murders and blamed Haredim, particularly the Shas religious party.

“I warned in a column last year that Israel is a place which, on the one hand has liberal laws, but on the other does not attempt to counter homophobia,” Danny Zak, a gay activist and journalist, told the Jerusalem Post during the demonstration. “A murder was waiting to happen,” Zak added.

“The Shas party has the blood of two innocent kids on their hands. Shas has blamed gays for earthquakes and diseases. This is incitement, but no one is put on trial for it.”

If the police are correct and have indeed nabbed the killers, the homosexual community will have to do a lot of soul-searching, as Israeli media and political parties in the center and left still should be doing over the accusations that the entire national religious and settler community was responsible for the assassination of Rabin.

    In other words, kill a goy & we will support you like Baruch Goldstein. We will call it a hate crime against the killer.

  2. Janice Kaye says:

    Actually Yigal Amir was Ranaana. And I believe that the settlers were accused of creating an atmosphere of hate that made it feasible that someone could think that it was justified to murder a Prime Minister.

  3. Nicole Monk says:

    actually, Janice, his parents were from herzliya

  4. Janice Kaye says:

    I stand corrected but I was closer than Haifa…

  5. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    A lover's spat gone bad. And of course, the gaza based haaretz and left wing Yediot immediately went on the attack against "homophobes." One would think a true journalist would have penned an apology but neither rag can ever be defined as "journalism" but it does explain why both have been firing the bulk of their staffs and are heading to bankruptcy.

  6. Everyone should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    Finger pointing before and now is wrong.

    We still don't know who did it or why they did it.

    When we do, it should be looked at closely.
