Activists of the Jewish community of Sydney are outraged by the decision of the municipal authorities to freeze the construction of the synagogue in the heart of Bondi beach, which, according to officials, can become a target for terrorists.
They are convinced that this decision is in fact a defeat in the face of Islamic terror, wrote on Thursday, August 3, news site news.com.au.
Last Wednesday the court of the environment upheld the decision of the city Council of Waverly, and forbade the construction of synagogues, and one of the reasons was formulated in the following way: this building could attract terrorists.
Jewish activists call to reconsider this step: «Wake up Australia – we have officially surrendered to Islam. And if this is our path, then we are a bunch of cowards. We allow to impose their will on us and to tell Australians how the gods and to pray, and what – not.»
The head of the Jewish Council of deputies of the state of New South Wales Vic Alhadeff calls the decision «a dangerous precedent».
