This is the single most Islamophopbic event in Australian history. And it’s equally anti-semitic which is really saying something. Not to mention disgusting and cowardly as well. This is the story: Bondi synagogue ban over terrorism risk leaves Jewish community shocked and furious. And before I get into the detail, let me say that I think such an occurrence is wildly improbable, on the level of a gas main explosion or being hit by a falling rock.
A LOCAL council has banned the construction of a synagogue in Bondi because it could be a terrorist target, in a shock move that religious leaders say has caved in to Islamic extremism and created a dangerous precedent.
The decision, which has rocked the longstanding Jewish community in the iconic suburb, was upheld in court this week as the nation reeled from the alleged airline terror threat and debate raged over increased security measures at airports and other public places.
The Land and Environment Court backed the decision by Waverley Council to prohibit the construction of the synagogue in Wellington St, Bondi — just a few hundred metres from Australia’s most famous beach — because it was too much of a security risk for users and local residents.
The people who made this decision are repulsive scum. If the Jews who attend this synagogue aren’t afraid who are they to be fearful on their behalf. ISIS blows up churches, and Buddhist statues too. If we are going to worry about that, should we also stop airplanes from flying, people going to sporting events or allowing pedestrians to wander through the Bourke Street Mall. Here is their “evidence”, bizarre as it no doubt is:
Its evidence, as summarised by the court decision, was:
“The PTRA concludes nothing more than stating:
• western countries face a security threat, currently primarily from ISIS;
• the threat level in Australia is “probable”;
• Jewish communities across the world are no stranger to the threat of violence and as such will generally take security measures into account when planning, constructing or renovating buildings;
• the CITED design considers “potential possible threats” that are relevant to Australia; and
• the design measures focus on the persons inside the buildings only
“The PTRA does not raise concerns as to the safety and security of future particularly users of the synagogue, nearby residents, motorists; or pedestrians in Wellington Street.”
Australia is rapidly moving from a home of freedom and tolerance to a slavish craven stupidity as it appeases radical Islam in every opportunity it gets. You know that bit about “first they came for the Jews”? If this is what the members of Waverley Council think of our Muslim neighbours, there may yet be a role for the Human Rights Commission after all.
