Masks and Vetoes

Israeli gay rights activists, wearing cardboard masks depicting Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel's Minister of Economics Naftali Bennett, leader of the Jewish Home party, hug and kiss using their masks as they protest against the failure of a bill that would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation, during a demonstration held in front of the Knesset, Israel's parliament in Jerusalem, on December 17, 2013. The bill, that would afford child tax breaks to male homosexual couples, was blocked from reaching the Knesset plenum for a vote following the Jewish Home party’s veto.
