Following last week’s deadly stabbing at Jerusalem Pride — an attack that left one sixteen-year-old girl dead, and five other paraders wounded — Ynet, an Israeli news website, decided to conduct a social experiment that demonstrates the degree of homophobia embedded in the culture.

In a similar vein to last month’s experiments — which followed two men walking down the street holding hands in Moscow, and then in Kiev — the minute-and-a-half segment finds two men holding hands and wandering through busy thoroughfares and marketplaces in Jerusalem.

A hidden camera captures the responses from the bustling crowd:

“Dirty gays!”

“Sweetheart!’

“You gay sons of bitches!”

“Have you seen faggot and faggot holding hands?”
