Marzel, Weiss accused of incitement to murder

October 27, 2006 13:49

Members of Jerusalem's Open House - which represents the homosexual population of the city - on Friday submitted a formal complaint to police of incitement to murder following remarks by religious extremists Professor Hillel Weiss and Baruch Marzel against the Jerusalem Gay Parade. Weiss had said that "any zealous means" were acceptable to foil "the atrocious march in Jerusalem." Marzel had said that the stabbing at last year's march would pale into insignificance when compared with what would happen this year. Open House Director General Noah Setat called the comments vile attempts to thwart the decision of the High Court and the rule of law with violent methods.
