In a pre-recorded video address intended for the demonstrators, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the attack was aimed "at all our children."Thousands of Israelis attended demonstrations across the country on Saturday, two days after an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man allegedly stabbed six people at Jerusalem's gay pride parade, leaving one teenager in critical condition.

Large rallies were held in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and other smaller events elsewhere throughout the country where numerous speakers warned of dire consequences for Israeli society unless authorities take firmer action to root out homophobia.

"What happened in Jerusalem goes against the spirit of (the Jewish) people... In every society there are extreme, murderous elements and regrettably it is true even among us but society and the state is judged by how the mainstream and the leadership acts ... we will continue to lead our country against hatred and homophobia," Netanyahu said.
