First of all, when it comes to gay rights, America isn't such a liberal country after all. And New York doesn't even recognize gay marriages. In fact, in some ways, Israel is actually more liberal than the U.S. For example, our military is still saddled with that asinine "Don't ask, don't tell" system. The IDF is not. Not only that, but Tel Aviv has actually become a popular tourist destination for gay Europeans. But, apparently, that doesn't fit with your preconceived notions and condescending narrative.
7. People, did you even read #2?

He didn't condemn the lifestyle. He didn't say anything about the USA in general. All he said was that Berlin, London and New-York are more gay-friendly than Tel-Aviv. It's debatable, but it seems your reactions are to some totally different talkback.
8.  Tel Aviv becomes a paradise..for Gays !!

After Sodom and Gomorrah...we have Tel Aviv competing with other enlightened (Sic) capitals to become the proudest gay paradise of the world. Would you believe it ?

Before countries like israel, US, Germany etc claim to be paradise for gays, they should first recognize gay marriage and adoption. For true gay equality and paradise you should come and see what is happening in Canada (Toronto and Montreal in particular).Not only gay marriage is recognized all over the country, but gays are not seen by heterosexuals as some sort of oddity, but simply as equal human beings The countries listed above still have a long way to go....
