The Australian Jewish Association (AJA) is being launched this week by a team of senior members of the Australian Jewish community.

In a mail-out it is described as being “unique in our community in being established on conservative political principles and is guided by genuine Jewish Torah based values”.

David Adler

The message continues “You can expect it to be more direct and outspoken on matters of principle over political correctness. AJA will speak out clearly on security issues, sources of anti-Semitism, other external threats and advocacy involving Israel.”

http://jewishassociation.org.au/  The Mission Statement and Core Principles outline the purpose and values of AJA.

Representatives of AJA will be available to address Jewish community meetings.

The president of the new organisation is Dr David Adler who told J-Wire: “The intention is to be a democratic direct membership based organisation – this is actually another distinguishing feature. Perhaps I’m drawing on my time as 2IC of the AMA. While the initial team is appointed, after a transition period the intent is to have 2nd yearly elections of 50% of the board/council. These rules are still be formulated.”

    Finally a new organisation that will throw political correctness into the garbage where it belongs.

    This organisation will for example give an alternative view to that espoused by the establishment Jewish leadership in this country in relation to say 18c.

    In relation to Section 18c, it is my view and that of many others that this Section of the Racial Discrimination Act should have been abolished but the institutions supposedly representing a supposed “Jewish viewpoint” agitated for its retention and their viewpoint ultimately prevailed.

    This new organisation represents a change in the political landscape where politicians now have an alternate organisation they can seek comment and opinion from.
