The claim in this story is false and has been debunked. Litzman did not ever say such a thing. If he had, the Israeli newspapers, which mostly lean left, would have had the guy strung up from a lamppost. see here for the debunking: https://honestreporting.com/hr-prompts-correction-to-false-charge-against-israeli-health-minister/ So where did this story come from? A Pakistan-based website and a progressive secular humanist site that got it from… the Pakistani site. This is an unfortunate demonstration of how easy it is for fake news to spread from illegitimate sources. To its credit, Pink News responded to our email immediately, acknowledging that an error had been made. The story has been amended and the following correction issued: An earlier version of this article referenced two inaccurate reports regarding Yaakov Litzman blaming the coronavirus pandemic on homosexuality. This has since been corrected.

Did they change the headline, accusing Litzman of blaming homosexuals for pandemic?
