The Nahal Haredi soldier suspected of posting threats against the gay community on the Internet was released to house arrest by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court on Tuesday afternoon. The soldier, Jerusalem resident Shmuel Freimark, was also given a restraining order banning him from the gay community for 180 days. Investigators apparently failed to find enough evidence on which to base claims that the man had ties with national hate groups seeking to perpetrate attacks against the gay community and left-wing activists, Army Radio reported. "The defendant must not come within 100 meters of crowds, known or unknown meeting places of the gay community," Judge Arnon Darel said, "for a period of 180 days, beginning today."
