Haredi activists visit parents of teen slain at Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade

A group of haredi activists have paid a visit to the parents of Shira Banki, the young woman who was killed by an ultra-Orthodox man during the Jerusalem Gay Pride parade two weeks ago.

The activists, from the Gesher organization that promotes mutual understanding between societies in Israel, visited the Banki family on Friday saying that although they were opposed to homosexual lifestyles, they totally rejected violence.

They insisted that Yishai Schlissel, who murdered Banki, was not representative of the haredi community.
