Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the endorsement by Education Minister and Bayit Yehudi leader Rafi Peretz of gay conversion therapy, saying they are "not acceptable to me and do not reflect the position of the government under my leadership."
"The remarks of the education minister regarding the gay community are not acceptable to me and do not reflect the position of the Government under my leadership," Netanyahu said."I spoke this evening with Rabbi Rafi Peretz, who made it clear that the Israeli education system will continue to accept all of Israel's children as they are, without any difference of sexual orientation."
