Israel’s Ministerial Committee for Legislation yesterday approved a draft law criminalizing soliciting prostitution. Draft bill would impose prison sentences of up to six months for solicitors of sexual services. The draft law, strongly lobbied for by MK Orit Zuaretz (Kadima), chairwoman of the Knesset Subcommittee on Trafficking in Women, will provide an educational program for first-time offenders. Second-time offenders will face imprisonment. The law will be brought to a vote in the Knesset plenum.

Jerusalem gay pride “March For Equality” reaches the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament, exactly one year after the massacre in the Bar Noar gay youth club in Tel-Aviv. This year’s parade was very conservative in comparison to previous years, sounding a quiet and solemn political message and commemorating Nir Katz and Liz Trobishi, victims of gunshots on August 1st, 2009.
