Police launch investigation into posters praising gay pride parade stabbings

Jerusalem Police have launched an investigation into dozens of posters affixed publicly in several ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods throughout the capital praising the stabbings and murder carried out by Yishai Schlissel during the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade last month.

According to police, the posters were distributed by a group called “The Faithful Jewry,” which honored Schlissel for carrying out the July 30 attack that took the life of 16-year-old Shira Banki, and wounded five others.

Many of the posters featured quotes the Old Testament and blessed Schlissel as a sacrificial emissary from God. “Whoever spills the blood of the wicked is as if he brought a sacrifice,” one stated.
