Israeli ultra-Orthodox Jew Yishai Shlissel (C), then suspected of stabbing six Gay Pride marchers
Jerusalem - Arab Today

An Israeli court on Tuesday convicted an ultra-Orthodox man of murder and six counts of attempted murder over stabbings at a Jerusalem Gay Pride parade last year that killed a 16-year-old girl.

The July 2015 attack by Yishai Shlissel led to harsh criticism of Israeli police. Shlissel had been released from prison only three weeks before after having served a 10-year sentence for a similar attack.

He had also posted a letter on the Internet speaking of the "abomination" of a Gay Pride parade being held in the Holy City and the need to stop it, even at the cost of one's life.

Many questioned how Shlissel was allowed anywhere near the parade. The attack occurred in Jerusalem city centre as hundreds were participating in the march.

Six senior Israeli policemen were later removed from their posts over the attack.

When he was charged in court in August, Shlissel lashed out at homosexuality and mentioned the name of the 16-year-old girl who died.

"The pride parade must be stopped in order for the soul of Shira Banki to ascend to heaven," Shlissel, who wears a long beard, reportedly told the court in Jerusalem.

"If you care for her well-being... you must stop cursing against God. The parade marchers are bringing great harm upon the nation of Israel."
