Shas leader MK Aryeh Deri posted on his Facebook page following the Friday night attack in Sydney, Australia when a family was physically assaulted in an anti-Semitic attack.
“The horrible attack in Sydney, Australia this past Friday night on the Ben Haim family and their friends only serves to prove that anti-Semitism is in no way gone from the world. Even in a place that is calm and peaceful, the phenomenon still occurs”, he posted.
“It is our duty as the only Jewish country to ask Australia to deal with this with an iron fist and eradicate these occurrences, and make sure the perpetrators are brought to justice and punished to the full extent of the law. Jews and Israelis anywhere in the world need to feel that the State of Israel backs them and is there for them,” he added.
