News the HP Doesn't Cover: 100,000 Strong at Tel Aviv Pride Parade

The Huffington Post puts its own spin on an earlier article about the (at the time upcoming) Tel Aviv Pride Parade, but it didn't follow up with this great news:

Tel Aviv's 15th annual Pride Parade kicked off on Friday, days after police arrested four suspects in connection with the 2009 gay youth center shooting.

According to the Tel Aviv municipality, over 100,000 people took part in the celebration which is the culmination of Israel's Pride Month events. Many tourists have arrived in Israel specifically to participate in the parade.   
Among those who spoke at the event were Finance Minister Yair Lapid, Opposition Chairwoman Shelly Yachimovich, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Culture and Sport Minister Limor Livnat.
Like nowhere else in the Middle East. Period.
