Actor Peter Kusznir has been reported of “repeatedly impersonated and vilified the friends” of 10-yr-old Thalia Hakin who was killed in Melbourne’s Bourke St tragedy in which a driver ploughed allegedly intentionally into pedestrians.

The story followed four days of investigation by the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission’s Dvir Abramovich.

News.com.au states that Kusznir was “reportedly instructed by police to pull down at least three lengthy videos where he vilified several victims who were killed and injured in the tragedy”.

The media outlet also reports that Kuszner, who played minor roles in “Neighbours” and “Underbelly”, called two Melbourne hospitals called two hospitals pretending a family friend of the Hakins. Thalia’s mother Nathalie was injured and hospitalised after the attack.

News.com.au reports it is Mr Kusznir tells the hospital 10 days after the tragedy:

Mr Kusznir: “I’ve just arrived in Melbourne from interstate and I’ve found out there’s an old friend of mine that was involved in that tragedy last week in Melbourne.

“I … was wondering what visiting hours were possible.

“I plan on going into the city and hopefully visit her.

“Her name is Hakin … Nathalie.”

Receptionist: “Who’s calling?”

Mr Kusznir: “Does it really matter? Is this the general thing you do when someone calls to ask for visiting hours? So if I don’t give you my name you’re not going to give me details?”

Mr Kusznir eventually gives his first name only and the receptionist transfers his call to a nurse on the rehabilitation ward.

Mr Kusznir: “All I wanted to know was the visiting hours.”

Nurse: “I just need a name because she’s got a blockage on who can visit her.”

Mr Kusznir: “It’s an old friend of hers from years back. You’ve got my first name.”

The nurse refuses to budge and threatens to end the call.

Mr Kusznir: “Is she well? Because she was in a critical condition only a few days ago. Can I just ask: ‘What’s the big secret?

“She was involved in a big tragedy and I just want to visit and give her flowers.”

The nurse tells Mr Kusznir he is wasting her time.

“I think she’s not even injured.”

One of the three videos which were all all viewed by news.com.au reveals that Kuszner is a conspiracy theorist who claims the attack did not take place and questions the victims’ injuries.

News.com.au also reports: “He makes numerous other horrific comments about people hurt in the attack, their families and some general anti-Semitic comments about Jewish people.”

Commenting on the news.com.au story, the president of  The Jewish Community Council of Victoria Jennfier Huppert told J-Wire: “I’m appalled that this person would choose to exploit the Bourke St tragedy. It was an example of an antisemitic act which was uploaded to the Internet where I understand he had thousand of followers.”

Dr Dvir Abramovich, the chairman of the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission said he was “deeply distressed by this unrestrained hatred” towards the Hakin family.

“This obsessive crusade against the Hakin family is dripping with venomous demonisation that breaks my heart,” Mr Abramovich said.

“That anyone would callously exploit the tragic death of a young girl and the unimaginable suffering of her family to promote their agenda and poison the minds of others should make every Australian shudder.

“The fact these reprehensible videos have been viewed tens of thousands of times, and the troubling comments posted, demonstrate that there are those eager to openly embrace and spread conspiracy theories.”

Six people were killed on the January 20th attack. Dimitrious Gargasoulas, 27, has been charged on five counts of murder.

    And all the Jews on the right want to convince the community that all the anti-Semitism is coming from the left. They have not learnt one thing from history, those fools.
