Meretz MK Nitzan Horowitz, the Knesset's only openly gay legislator, blasted MKs Anastassia Michaeli (Yisrael Beytenu) and Uri Ariel (National Union) for their recent anti-gay comments at a Tel Aviv rally Saturday night.

Horowitz accused the MKs of spreading hatred and harming efforts to create a more tolerant and free society.

"Anastassia Michaeli and Uri Ariel are just symptoms of a deep problem that is is hatred, racism, and ignorance," Horowitz said. "Those responsible are those who prevent us from changing the sitation: Ministers and especially the prime minister who time and time again block bills that combat discrimination and encourage education for tolerance and equality for families. The prime minister and his people have no shame: They use the gay community to tell the world how liberal and tolerant Israel is while trampling our rights and permitting incitement that could end in blood."
