Australian Jewish leader gets ‘chilling barrage’ of online antisemitic abuse

An Australian Jewish organization has expressed “horror” at what it said Sunday has been a torrent of antisemitic online abuse directed at its chairman, Dvir Abramovich following a successful campaign last month to prevent British conspiracy theorist David Icke from entering the country.

Icke, who denies widespread charges of antisemitism and believes the world is run by giant shape-shifting reptiles, was due to start a speaking tour in major Australian cities.

Australian media confirmed on February 20 that his visa had been canceled on “character grounds,” following a campaign by opposition Labour MP Tim Watts, who blasted him as a Holocaust denier, and by the Anti-Defamation Commission (ADC), a local Jewish anti-discrimination group.
