In honour of Israel's forthcoming 70th anniversary, Government Member Stuart Robert moved a motion in Parliament on February 28, in the lead up to the 80th anniversary of the Evian Conference on the plight of Jewish refugees, to officially apologise for Australia's position on persecuted Jews in 193

The Last Word: Assessing the Assessment

The Last Word: Assessing the Assessment Categories: Antisemitism, Australasia     Author: Jeremy Jones

Anti-Jewish posters plastered across a popular tourist destination, cars parked near synagogues vandalised with swastikas, racist stereotypes alleging people who were untrustworthy or miserly are likely to be Jewish, not just spoken but published online. All of the above, and more, occurred in the

Europa Europa: Domestic Unease

Europa Europa: Domestic Unease Categories: Anti-Zionism, Antisemitism, United Kingdom     Author: Douglas Davis

I have always felt a profound debt of gratitude to Britain. It did not roll out the red carpet but, rather impassively, it offered me a refuge and the opportunity to lead a normal life of anonymity, which is the blessing of a big city. No more.

The Last Word: White Offs

The Last Word: White Offs Categories: Antisemitism, Australasia, Far Right, United States     Author: Jeremy Jones

Let me be quite clear - whether or not Jews had been an issue, the far-right demonstrators were repulsive, repugnant and reprehensible. Amongst my personal acquaintances who I have discovered attended the counter protest were Muslims, Christians and Jews, international students and locals, the young

The Last Word: The Banality of Antisemitism

The Last Word: The Banality of Antisemitism Categories: Antisemitism, United Kingdom     Author: Jeremy Jones

Prior to, and during, the recent UK election campaign, there was a renewed focus on antisemitism promoted by sections of, and tolerated by many more inside, the political Left. It seemed that the more one encountered the support base of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, the more likely one was to find a
