No more antisemitism in Australia
By Pearl Cheung January 16, 2024
Since war broke out in the Middle East in October 2023 following the invasion of Israel by Hamas terrorists, there has been an alarming rise in antisemitism in Australia and around the world.
Rallies and marches with disturbing genocidal chanting, neo-Nazi salutes, and the harassment of innocent families and school-aged children, are happening right here in various States. So far, the Police have done good crowd control over all rallies.
This is a shameful stain on our national reputation and a threat to the multicultural fabric in Australia, as most of the citizens are overseas migrants.
As one of the migrants to Australia 25 years ago, I view all legitimate and peaceful migrants-turned-citizens, as their right to be respected and feel safe in our country. The Government and State authorities must monitor, confront, or shut down such displays of hate language towards other racial groups within the communities.
As conscientious citizens, one can petition our Government and MPs to take legislative measures to protect and uphold the safety and rights of the Jewish community, just as we would for any other community.
