Bill banning homosexual transformation treatment passes initial vote, enraging ultra-Orthodox

Coalition events Blue and White and work help legislation despite objections by Netanyahu’s spiritual allies; Haredi MKs warn Benny Gantz: ‘You won’t be prime minister’

A bill outlawing controversial “gay conversion treatment” passed an initial vote into the Knesset on Wednesday, drawing cheers from LGBT rights advocates and angering Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ultra-Orthodox governmental allies.

The bill advanced level after Defense Minister Benny Gantz’s Blue and White celebration supported the legislation, in a move that created a fresh coalition crisis. The government’s work celebration also broke using the coalition to straight straight back the balance.

The opposition-spearheaded movement passed with 42 lawmakers supporting it and 36 objecting.
