Israeli activists hang LGBT flag on chief rabbi's office in protest at anti-gay remarks

RT reports:
Protesters in Jerusalem have hung a gay pride flag on the office building of the city’s chief rabbi, also drawing a rainbow on the sidewalk outside. It came after the religious leader said “homosexuality is an abomination” and “is punishable by death.”

Police were called to investigate the colorful new additions to Rabbi Shlomo Amar's office on Saturday. After responding to the call, they said they would question the left-wing Meretz party's Hebrew University branch, after the group took responsibility for the stunt in a tweet, according to media cited by the Times of Israel.
