Far-right slogan scrawled on LGBTQ center in Tel Aviv, hours before Pride Parade

Hours ahead of the Tel Aviv Pride Parade, a far-right slogan is spray-painted on an LGBTQ center in the city’s Sarona market.

Unknown vandals write “Kahane was right” in graffiti, a reference to the murdered rabbi Meir Kahane, who advocated expelling all the Arabs from the Holy Land and whose Kach movement was outlawed in the 1990s but continues to have influence.

Deputy Tel Aviv Mayor Meital Lehavi urges National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir — himself a longtime Kahane follower who in recent years has sought to distance himself from the rabbi’s racist legacy — to “condemn the ugly graffiti on the building of the Tel Aviv Municipal LGBT Community Center on the morning of the Tel Aviv Pride Parade.”
