Alleged gay pride parade stabber arraigned, continues to reject court authority as unholy

The alleged gay pride parade stabber Yishai Schlissel was arraigned on Monday before the Jerusalem District Court on charges of murder and six counts of attempted murder in the July 30 stabbing spree during the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade.

The stabbings horrified the country, garnered rare across-the-board condemnation from even major orthodox religious figures and drew international attention due to its ferocity and the footage of the attacks.

Schlissel, who was previously imprisoned for 10 years for stabbing three people at the 2005 Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade, was arrested in the midst of allegedly going on a stabbing rampage at the parade, just three weeks after being released from jail, killing 16-year-old Shira Banki and wounding six others.
