One statistic from the Human Rights First report that bears a moment?s reflection is one on homophobia. According to the report, quote, hatred of gays came to the fore [in Europe] in 2006, among other instances, at Gay Pride parades in Warsaw, Moscow, Bucharest, Riga and Tallinn. Unquote.

What is one to make then of the banning of the Gay Parade in Jerusalem?
