Jewish activist slams decision to prosecute anti-Islam protesters for religious vilification and says it will only publicise their far-right movements

A leading Jewish activist believes the ground-breaking prosecution of three anti-Islam protesters for religious vilification will only breathe life into their far-right movements.

Avi Yemini has spoken out over the cases of leading white nationalist figures Blair Cottrell, Chris Shortis and Neil Erikson, who were convicted of inciting serious contempt, revulsion and ridicule of Muslim people.

The trio caused uproar after beheading a dummy during a protest opposing plans for a mosque to be built in Bendigo, Victoria.
