Court okays Gay Pride Parade in Jerusalem

A quick update on the Gay Pride parade that the mayor of Jerusalem had canceled. According to Laurie Copans of the AP, an Israeli judge has overruled the mayor, ordered the city to pay $13,000 to the organizers of the parade with $6500 coming from the mayor's own pocket.

The effort to halt the parade, scheduled for tomorrow, was one of those rare occasions when Orthodox Jews and Muslims could agree. It's nice to have a common enemy, isn't it?

Meanwhile, demonstrators protesting the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza blocked the main entrance to Jerusalem today and are likely to continue their efforts more or less indefinitely. It should be quite a time in the Holy City.
