Party’s policies include the abolishment of multi-culturism. Rozendaal has obtained a commitment from the ALP that Australia First will not benefit from ALP preferences.

Saleam has served time in jail for a shotgun attack on the ANC Sydney representative. He is also one of the founder members of National Action, the Australian version of the National Front.

Eric Roozendaal, who is Jewish, said: “This man and his party are an insult to those who fought Nazism and paid ther ultimate sacrifice. I have fought Mr Saleam and his repugnant views since my student days in the 1980s.  One Nation got its foothold in Queensland due to Coalition preferences. This must not happen again.”

There has been no direct response from the Treasurer following the daubing attack on his Eastern Suburbs home but his spokesman told J-Wire: “This will not stop him speaking out against groups who preach hatred and division.”

Mr Saleam has denied any involvement by his group in the incident.

Police are investigating and a report has been filed with the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies.

A spokesman for the NSWJBD said that local community security would maintain its normal watchful eye on communal activities.
