Netanyahu rejects rabbi’s anti-gay comments

Netanyahu condemns comments by Rabbi Yigal Levinstein against the LGBT community, and rejects demands that he respond to “every deplorable comment.”

“I am not a response machine. I am not a internet commentator,” he says, when asked by Meretz MK Tamar Zandberg why he hasn’t commented.

But, he says, the rabbi’s remarks were “inappropriate, not acceptable, not acceptable to me, and shouldn’t be acceptable to anyone else.

“I think a human being is a human being and I act accordingly.”
