Right-wing politicians to LGBT activists: Tolerance has to go both ways

Right-wing politicians lamented the antagonism they faced from LGBT activists on Sunday, following an anti-violence rally in Tel Aviv’s Gan Meir park on Saturday night.

The demonstration’s organizers canceled Education Minister Naftali Bennett’s planned appearance, citing a “belligerent crowd” in a text message to the Bayit Yehudi leader, and soon after, when Yinon Magal, an MK from his party, tried to speak in Bennett’s stead, he was not allowed to take the stand.

National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Minister Yuval Steinitz, a member of Likud, was booed incessantly during his speech and protesters waved red-stained gloves at him, which were meant to indicate he had blood on his hands.
