The suspect in Thursday's stabbing attack, Yishai Shlissel, reportedly wrote and published a letter last week saying that there is an obligation to stop the Jerusalem gay pride parade at all costs.

Shlissel perpetrated a similar stabbing attack at the 2005 Jerusalem gay pride parade. He was recently released from prison after having been convicted of stabbing three people during the parade ten years ago.
