Statement: AIJAC condemns antisemitic tweets

Jun 30, 2015

There is no place for racism in Australian society, and AIJAC commends Libertas Financial Planning for terminating financial adviser James Howarth’s authorised representative status following Howarth’s vile antisemitic tweets attacking Assistant Treasurer The Hon. Josh Frybenberg MP.

We are also pleased that the Financial Services Institute of Australia has launched an investigation.

Mr Howarth’s tweets were disgraceful. His belated words of apology, so graciously accepted by Mr Frydenberg, beggar belief that he did not realise that a stream of anti-Jewish abuse would give offence.

AIJAC acknowledges the strong, unambiguous condemnations of the vile antisemitism from media commentators and Parliamentarians. There must never be tolerance of racism. 

Dr Colin Rubenstein

Executive Director
