Roland Jabbour, the chairman of the Australian Arabic council has gone on record stating that Jews are descended from pigs and apes and that blood libels about Jews, even when knowingly false, are perfectly acceptable.
He also stated that it was perfectly acceptable to tell people that Rabbi’s kill Christian children for the blood, if it helps built animosity towards Israel. He told The Age:
“…in the context of “the crimes of the state of Israel” it was reasonable for al-Manar [a Hezbollah TV network now being brought to Australia] to do so and to portray Israeli rabbis as killing Christian children to use their blood in Passover meals…”
John Searle, of the ADL responded by saying that:
“Australian Jews, like all other Australians, have the right to live without being subjected to this kind of vicious defamation. The ADC condemns all forms of racism including anti-semitism and works for a tolerant society that recognizes the right of people of all religions and backgrounds to live free from discrimination and abuse.”
Unsurprisingly, the ABC has failed to mention this story.
