Fred Phelpsowitz?

Just to prove that every religion has its share of wackos, I give you the Jewish answer to Fred Phelps, the right wing Christian who believes US troops are being killed in Iraq in response to our nation's tolerance of homosexuality. From the World Net Daily:

BEIT EL, Israel – Are Israel's troubles in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon and the Hezbollah rockets slamming daily into major Israeli population centers here a result of the Jewish state's tacit support for a homosexual parade slated for next month in Jerusalem?

Some rabbis seem to think so, and they are attempting to block the event from taking place in Judaism's holiest city.

"Why does this war break out this week, all of sudden with little warning? Because this is the exact week the Jewish people are trying to decide whether the gay pride parade should take place in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv," Pinchas Winston, a noted author, rabbi and lecturer based in Jerusalem told WND.

Hmm, come to think of it, these guys might be right. I've seen Hezbollah march on TV, and they do seem to have a flag corps. Plus, they do wear fabulous scarves. Maybe Hezbollah's incursion into Israel was simply an attempt to get to the parade, then they ran into some men in uniform and, well, you know how these things go.
