Default Three killed in Tel Aviv gay bar shooting

Three killed in Tel Aviv gay bar shooting

A gunman killed three people and seriously wounded several others in a Tel Aviv gay bar tonight.

The attack happened in the basement of the popular Ha'agudah club where a group of teenagers were holding a meeting.

Israeli officials said the gunman, who fled the scene, sprayed the club with automatic rifle fire and six of the wounded were badly hurt.

Witnesses told Israeli media that the gunman was dressed all in black, and described the scene as a "bloodbath".

Nitzan Horowitz, Israel's only openly gay MP, condemned the "hate crime". He said: "This is without a doubt the worst ever incident targeting the gay community in Israel."

Coastal Tel Aviv has a vibrant gay scene, but open homosexuality is less welcome in conservative areas of Israel.

On balance, I think the only reason our political elite haven't slaughtered us in camps is they need us to produce children for them to fuck
