    I would like everybody to keep in mind that this is strictly the work of extremists. I am what people would call "ultra-orthodox" and apparently the "ultra" part of it makes it sound like we're all crazy. I know from my extensive experience that more than 99% of ultraorthodox would not be violent or disgraceful in the way that has been highlighted by the recent stories. All it takes to smirch 10% of israel's population is a couple of fringe lunatics acting out of their own psychotic volitions. No respected rabbi will ever stand up for these despicable people and neither will I. These extremists deserve to be arrested just like anybody else that does similar acts. However they definitely do not portray the average ultra-orthodox jew.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
