Ordered Out of Melbourne Neighborhood for Taunting Jews


An Australian court issued a removal order, last week, against an alleged neo-Nazi who lived in a Jewish neighborhood in Melbourne and constantly harassed its residents with anti-Semitic calls for a long time. Twenty-eight-year-old Adam Schipkie was apparently also involved in spray-painting swastikas on neighborhood vehicles, but claimed that the vandalism was carried out by people who visited him.

Efforts to reach an agreement with Schipkie failed and residents filed a complaint after his outbursts turned into real threats. Schipkie said he would appeal the court order, denying allegations that he was a neo-Nazi.
