Avi Yemini has told Fairfax Media: “I think a lot of the Jewish community leaders only seem to lean towards conservative politics when it comes to Israel, but on a lot of other matters they lean to the left.”

I am proud to announce that they have accepted my invitation to address our community.”

Jeremy Jones, AIJAC ‘s Director of Community Affairs told J-Wire: “Australian Jewry thrives in a vibrant, multicultural society, which celebrates religious freedom and marginalizes racism and bigotry. It is moral, principled and in our community’s interest to promote harmony, tolerance and a culture wherein individuals are not judged based on ethnic origin, faith or national background. One Nation has a track record of undermining the bonds which unite us as Australians, and of empowering outright bigots to feel that they are legitimate contributors to public discourse.

In addition, One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts has failed to address concerns that he has based policy formulations on the ravings of a well-known antisemite.

Any interaction between responsible members of the Jewish community and One Nation representatives would be predicated  on these issues being the core of the discussion”

    Clearly no one has bothered to find out the first thing about Pauline Hanson.

    She has proved to be pro-Israel.

    It is an absolute disgrace that AIJAC, the ECAJ and the JCCV all have voiced their disapproval for The “Independent Jewish Council of Australia” About time and I hope it succeeds, we need a strong voice not the weak pathetic leftist dhimmi one we have at present.

    Furthermore, you don’t have to be angry, hateful and fearful to be a proud Jew and Zionist. Try following Jewish teachings of, not treating others as you would hate to be treated. Surely that’s a better way.

    OH gee so predictable the usual suspects trying to shut down debate,and demonize everyone that does not wish our country to end up like France , Germany , UK Holland and Scandinavia JCCV uber left Progressive board with their agenda driven statements , AJDS Alt Left Palestinian activists and of course MR Herzog blah blah blah

    I remind all Jewish Communal representatives who will not tolerate any deviation from their ancient Multicultural obsession Donald Trump remember the silent majority

    • Henry Herzog says:

      Of course Mr Burd aligns with the far-right white supremacists, the KKK and the other fascists (the silent majority) who support Trump. I just wonder what it will take to convince him, being Jewish, he doesn’t fit in with them: The Holocaust, it appears, hasn’t done it.

    Oops Jeremy Jones, there are antisemites in all political parties, Greens and Labour have many. Don’t throw away the baby with the bath water.

    • Henry Herzog says:

      I know exactly what you mean Eleonora: Labor and the Greens are just as bigoted as Pauline Hanson and One Nation; it’s only those on the hard right who are loving, accepting, all for equality and fighting for the freedom of hate speech.

  5. Henry Herzog says:

    Never mind the absurdity of these people teaming up with renown racists, questions could justifiably be raised about the legality of this mob of ultra-right zealots training youth here to fight in a foreign land.
