Statement: AIJAC disappointed at NSW decision not to prosecute hate preacher

Aug 28, 2015

The Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) is very disappointed and deeply concerned by the decision not to prosecute hate preacher Ismael Alwahwah, a leader of the radical organization Hizb ut-Tahrir in Sydney, who last year called for the destruction of Jews. 

“Alwahwah’s statements are as clear-cut a case of an incitement to violence as anyone could expect to have the misfortune to witness, reflecting some of the most extremist and radical attitudes existing within Australia,” said AIJAC Executive Director Dr. Colin Rubenstein.

“If NSW law as it stands does not have the capability to unequivocally establish the complete unacceptability of spreading such hatred, then it needs to be changed to provide adequate protection to all groups in multicultural Australia. Calling for the destruction of a people based on their religion and ethnicity should be a crime, pure and simple, and the law needs to be able to reflect this basic requirement,” said Dr. Rubenstein.
