Jewish peace groups blame Zionists, Christian Zionists, Neo-Nazis for antisemitism

by Michael West | Jun 17, 2024 | What's the scam?

Progressive Jewish group The Jewish Council of Australia has blamed right-wing Zionist lobbyists such as the Executive Council of Australian Jewry for ‘weaponising antisemitism’ and therefore giving rise to antisemitism in Australia.

Representatives for the JCA and the Australian Jewish Democratic Society told the Senate that far-right Zionist groups, Christian Zionists and Neo-Nazis were spreading hate and Islamophobia.

The evidence was put to the Senate’s Legal and Constitutional Affairs References Committee (Right wing extremist movements in Australia) in a hearing in Victoria. 

The JCA’s position on the atrocities perpetrated by Israel in Gaza is for an immediate and permanent ceasefire. They say Israel is committing genocide of Palestinians and have called on the Australian Government to cut ties with and impose sanctions on Israel.

Its representatives said they had been subject to antisemitism themselves and that part of the reason for the rise in antisemitism is the conflation by pro-Israel groups of anti-Israel criticism with antisemitism  

AJDS reps said there needed to be an ACNC (Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission) investigation into Zionist organisations here who were lobbying for financing illegal settlements in the West Bank.

Besides the ECAJ, which was identified as one problematic group, one of the most extreme pro-war lobbies in Australia is the Australian Jewish Association (AJA). Both these groups are publicly subsidised via their ‘charity’ status. Both support the government of Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel.

The ECAJ was ‘openly collaborating’ with and Zionist hate groups on the Far Right, he said. He also identified Australians for Israel as encouraging vigilantism as well as another extremist expounding views via Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News Australia. The publication Australian Jewish News was also identified as promoting racism.

ECAJ said the claims were “utterly without foundation”.
