World renowned Israeli choreographer faces harassment for being gay

"I need to make sure to kill all of you and I will make sure that you get stabbed," said Shay Navian according to an indictment filed on Thursday in Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court by dance choreographer Ido Tadmor.

Ido Tadmor, world renowned dance choreographer and lead judge on the Israeli version of "So You Think You Can Dance," was one of the first public figures to speak openly about his sexuality and the challenges of the LGBT community in Israel.

On August 12, 2015, Tadmor and his friends were sitting in a cafe in Tel Aviv when Navian allegedly began shouting at Tadmor that there is no place for homosexuals in Israel and that the homosexuals are to blame for the decay of Israeli society and therefore should all be forced to leave the country.
