Member of Knesset Ruth Calderon (Yesh Atid), who co-chairs the Israel-Australia Parliamentary Friendship Group with Knesset member Moshe Feiglin, expressed shock, Sunday, at the anti-Semitic attack on six Jews last Friday evening in Sydney. She thanked Communications Minister and Member of Parliament Malcolm Turnbull (Liberal-New South Wales), who represents the area, for condemning the attack. He said there was no place for such incidents in Sydney or anywhere else in Australia.
Doctor Calderon called on the Australian government to take the necessary steps to prevent the occurrence of such an event in the future. She also noted that she sees Israel as the national home for the Jewish people and thus feels solidarity and concern for the personal safety of Jewish communities living outside of Israel.
