A driver was shocked to see a message daubed on a road in DonvNale in the north-eastern Melbourne replacing letters in Premier Daniel Andrews with a Star of David and a swastika.

The Chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission Dvir Abramovich commented: “This is not just an attack on the Jewish community but an attack on all Victorians, plain and simple, and cannot stand.

Such craven vandalism is a distressing reminder that antisemitism still remains strong and that there
are individuals are walking our streets with burning hatred in their hearts who will stop at nothing to promote their poisonous and ideology and elevate fear.

As Covid019 continues to surge, we are seeing a proliferation of antisemitic and hateful conspiracy theories blaming the Jews for the pandemic spread rapidly online and in the real world. We deplore these ugly actions for what they represent: an abhorrent assault on our democratic system and on the core values all Victorians share and cherish.

Using this evil symbol to attack Premier Andrews is an insult to the memory of victims murdered at the hands of the Nazis and to those brave Australian soldiers who sacrificed their lives to defeat Hitler’s Third Reich.

It is also a kick in the guts of every Holocaust survivor.

We trust that those who carried out this outrageous act are identified and are brought to justice. We call on all religious and political leaders to declare in one voice that such reprehensible conduct will never be tolerated in our nation.”

    What the heck has the Star of David and swastika got to do with Daniel Andrews….

  2. Sandra Bay says:

    I think that whoever did this, doesn’t know whether they’re Arthur or Martha.
    To put both a Magen David with a Swastika suggests a level of schizophrenia and idiocy, that can only make the Dauber look like a fool.
    As the teenagers would say, what – ever!
    Yellow Dauber you’re an idiot

  3. Adrian Jackson says:

    This was probably done by pimply faces young Labor youth to get sympathy for Dan Andrews or right wing young Liberals youth being racist and stupid.
