Bondi synagogue ban over terrorism risk leaves Jewish community shocked and furious

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.

  • Australia !?!?! Crikey, Mate! Say Allah hu Akbar now instead of G’day!

    How about banning Islamic immigration instead so all us non Muslims can live and worship in peace!

      My thoughts exactly. They admit that muslims are the problem but won’t stop them from coming in .

      It’s the same in Canada. We have Police doing Security at every pro-hamas jew-hating rally held by muslims. But if a non-muslims shows up to protest these 10th century savages wanting to slaughter all the jews on Earth….the Police threat to arrest the Anti-Genocide Canadians.

      I have no use for the Police any more and we need to create
      a Service with Peace Officers that carry guns and enforce Canada’s laws equally while being accountable to the Taxpayers and note that career Parasite at the public trough on City Council Pam McConnel and others.

      When muslms have the numbers for the grand Jihad it is the quran that orders them to claim the land for islam and the Caliphate.
      Muslim came out to protest the Temple Mount issue which they say is a major Holy Place owned by allah and islam.
      Just wait until the pro-hamas muslims start to assert that Canada belongs to islam and allah where they bomb our buses and become suicide -bomber.

      There is only 1 islam no matter what Justin says or the taqiyyah ,master in the islamic org’s .

    Bondi is home to a large contingent of very wealthy Jews, many of whom would be lawyers. I guess that the dhimmi council is in for a ride.

    Stop Moslems in Oz from living within 100 miles of a beach will fix this too.

    The next logical step would be to ban Jews from living in a neighbourhood where non Jews live in order to ensure that the neighbours do not suffer collateral damage when Jews are attacked. Oh, and do not forget Jewish businesses based on the same logic. Yet in the world of today I should not be surprised after seeing so many times people attacked and killed by a bear or cougar accused of being responsible and the predator innocent. I am not talking about cases of people doing stupid things here, because that is a different story.

      Let’s go even one step further – if we build a wall around an area and tell the Jews they should live behind that wall for their protection…
      Sounds familiar.

    But they wouldn’t dare ban the construction of a mosque in Bondi which would certainly be a terrorist recruitment centre.

    Pathetic, a society run by cowards

    Bondi is one of the oldest and at one time largest Jewish communities in Australia. Figure in 5 years Jews will required to wear yellow stars… Oh you know ‘for their own protection’ of course.

    Update: This ridiculous decision has been withdrawn after “further discussion”. Looks like the Synagogue will go ahead.
