Sow the wind and reap the Whirlwind

Gay murder was a tragedy waiting to happen, writes Ori Golan

Last Sunday, at 11 pm, a masked gunman walked into a gay and lesbian youth center in Tel Aviv, pulled out a pistol and opened fire. He then fled into the night. Nir Katz a 26-year-old counselor at the centre, and Liz Trubeshi, 17, were killed on the spot. Eleven others were injured, some of them seriously.
