Haredi slasher at homosexual parade tried to arrange new attack from prison
Police have revealed that convicted serial stabber Yishai Schlissel, who murdered one person and wounded several others in during last year's Jerusalem Pride Parade, was arrested on suspicion of attempting to coordinate an attack on this year's parade.The brother's been released from custody, but so much of what I've read about the family seems so puzzling, it would come as no surprise if he'd been willing to succumb to the monster's influence. So now Schlissel, who's life is in the gutter because he wanted it to be, is trying to "reach from beyond the grave" and cause more chaos, giving supporters of the parade more ammunition to exploit and make it difficult for dissenters to voice their disagreements. If that's so, he's trying to be vile demon till the bitter end.
Haredi extremist Schlissel is currently serving a life term for the murder of Shira Banki at the 2015 parade. Police say he made contact with people outside the prison where he is being held in preparation for an attack.
Specifically, police intelligence indicates he enlisted his brother Michael - who is currently in police custody - to carry out an attack and disrupt the march, which is set to take place today.
Yishai Schlissel was arrest in his cell yesterday (Wednesday), and was brought in for questioning in Jerusalem. Today he will appear before Jerusalem District Court to respond to a police request to hold him in their custody until Sunday.
His brother just tried to clarify what was really going on:
In a few words, he explains the mistake: he had been talking on the phone with Yishai, when "he requested that we hold a prayer protest during the gay pride parade, and I jokingly asked him if he wants to [protest through] violence, and Yishai clarified that he didn't intend violence.Even if this is true, the part about joking is fishy. Is that something to joke about? No. It's fortunate that this year, proper security measures were taken, because we don't need any more bloodshed like what Schlissel caused in the prior year, nor should any ammo be given to the PC crowd to undermine valid dissent on homosexuality. In fact, Makor Rishon said that this time, the Haredi community kept quiet on the issue, with one city councilman telling the whole purpose of the march is to get attention, and there's no need to give them any. Now if only they'd understand the same thing with Women of the Wall.
"So I told him my opinion, which he already knew, that I am against violent protests, and when I finished the conversation, I told him that I am his 'Bar Plugta' (that I ideologically oppose him)."
Unfortunately for Michael, the Talmudic phrase raised the suspicions of eavesdropping police detectives, and led to his arrest. "The detective was obsessed with those words, and insisted that I explain to him what is a 'Bar Plugta.' I saw that he didn't know the term, so I explained that it means that anyone who argues on a particular topic, and one says 'permitted' while the other says 'forbidden,' they are 'Bar Plugtas'...the detective thought it was a code word between us."
