Israeli gay youth center murders

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I am remiss for not having mentioned in my previous entry the shooting at a gay and lesbian community center in Tel Aviv, Israel. Two young people, Nir Katz (26 years old) and Liz Trobishi (16) were assassinated in the tragedy and 15 more injured. No word yet on whether homophobia was the motive.

The US National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is organizing vigils in this country in support of the slayed and injured.
