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.

    When are mosque imams going to be prosecuted for their Jew-hating doctrines? The Quran is almost ENTIRELY a polemic against ALL other religions, especially Jews and Christians. The Quran incites ALL Muslims to despise them, not to befriend them, to lie to them, lie about them, subjugate them, punish them and eventually rid the world of them and thereby please Allah and be rewarded by it.

      likely never.

    Yes I suppose if they prosecute them for “religious vilification” the “extreme right” will get to stand up in court and present evidence to show that islam is vile and needs vilifying. Then it will become public knowledge and everyone will know that islam is vile and in need of some good ol’ vilification.

    Jews are supposed to be smart so they likely understand this.

  • Contempt, revulsion and ridicule – I know the feeling.

    Some of my fellow Jews really need their head examined. They are very confused.
