Another type of blood libel has been debunked
Israel Police early Thursday arrested a fourth suspect in connection with the 2009 attack on a gay youth center, which left two people dead and shocked the country.So it all turned out to be a case of one gay who turned against his own. And the left has the gall to act as though being LGBT makes one a saint. Not true at all.
The latest suspect is apparently an activist in the gay community and has been detained for allegedly knowing the motivation for the murders and obstructing the investigation by not sharing that information with police.
Three other suspects were arrested in connection to the murders themselves on Wednesday. All four suspects appeared before a Tel Aviv court on Thursday for a hearing, just one day before Tel Aviv's annual Gay Pride Parade.
[...] Police said they have ruled out the possibility that the shooting was a hate crime. Rather, they think the motive was personal - most likely, that one of the suspects sought to harm someone he believed was in the club at the time.
All of the initial three suspects are Jews between the ages of 20 and 40 who live in central Israel and have known each other for years. A gag order remains in force on most details of the case. Tel Aviv police chief Bentzi Sau explained that police still have much work to do, and that he does not yet want to release additional details.
Tzipi Hotovely's said that some politicians owe an apology to the religious community for scapegoating them out of convenience:
Deputy Transportation Minister Tzipi Hotovely called on “several elected officials” whom she did not name to apologize for blaming the religious sector for a shooting in 2009. Two people were killed and ten others wounded in the attack that occurred at a “gay” bar called the Barnoar in Tel Aviv.She's right, even Livni has to say she's sorry for her sick rush to judgement.
Leftist politicians were quick to claim the attack was motivated by “homophobia” and to assume it was carried out by a hareidi person or by someone from another religious stream, because of the Jewish religion's aversion to homosexual relations.
Police have now arrested several suspects in the case, however, and according to leaks, the motive for the crime was not aversion to “gay” people but a personal dispute that involved at least one “gay” person.
"Now that the reason for the horrible murder at the Barnoar is beginning to be known, there are several public officials who should apologize to the religious and hareidi public,” Hotovely said.
Hotovely noted that some of the public officials she is talking about currently serve in the government. “They were quick to blame an entire populace for responsibility for the murder, in order to get headlines,” she said.
Hotovely is doubtlessly thinking of Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who has made numerous appearances before the “gay” community over the years and has branded herself as a patron of this sector. Livni has referred to the Barnoar murders as a hate crime on numerous occasions.
A Tel Aviv Magistrates' Court judge sent three suspects in the murder to ten days' remand Thursday. A fourth suspect, who was not directly involved in the shooting, was ordered held for four days. There is a gag order on their identities and details of the investigation.
