— David Streeter

President Barack Obama’s Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro met with Aguda: The National Association of GLBT in Israel-which advocates for GLBT rights in the Knesset and across Israel-and other leaders from Israel’s GLBT community yesterday. According to the U.S. Embassy, “The meeting took place at the Gay and Lesbian Center of Tel Aviv-the scene of a hate crime in 2009 where a gunman opened fire in the club, killing two people and injuring at least 15.”
