nsw-gov-logoThe emergence of another “Hizb Ut-Tahrir” video, featuring an anti-Semitic tirade from Sydney-based Ismail al-Wah wah is deeply disturbing.

The freedom of speech that we enjoy in Australia is precious and we cannot allow it to be abused in this way. Hateful and derisive speech has no place in our harmonious multicultural society.

I welcome the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies’ decision to refer an earlier video in which Mr al-Wah wah seeks to vilify Jewish people to the Anti-Discrimination Board for investigation pursuant to the “Anti-Discrimination Act 1977”(NSW).

I have today written to the Anti-Discrimination Board to bring this most recent video (posted online on 3 March 2015) to its attention and asked that it be considered concurrently and expeditiously.
