Background on Australia's Hate laws





Australian Jews - among the most important backers of Australia's Racial Vilification Bill


The Executive Council of Australian Jewry, (that is, the self- appointed representatives of Australian Jewish people) have now used this legislation on several occasions to silence people or groups who have differing views concerning the historical reality of the alleged Jewish Holocaust by the Germans in World War Two.


 The ECAJ has launched various cases, against a Christian group, an elderly Widow, and Dr Töben, who has been persecuted since 1996 by this group:.


ECAJ cases under the Racial Hatred Act




Australian law -  genuine protection against Holocaust denial




Racial vilification law in Australia




Antisemitic Organisations in Australia



It is interesting to note that the complainant in this case - Jeremy Jones, his Barrister - Robin Margo SC, and Norman Scheuler who was interviewed on Television on several occasions as a spokesman for the Australian Jewish community, are all associated with the ECAJ:

Voice to be held in contempt

Freedom of speech should not be freedom to vilify, argue Steven Lewis and Peter Wertheim (lawyers with Slater and Gordon who ran the racial vilification and contempt cases against Fredrick Toben)

  Peter Wertheim is also associated with the ECAJ, as shown here 


So, we have here a very small but powerful minority group (representing approximately 0.6% of the population of Australia), who are able to greatly influence the introduction of new Laws into this country, and then use these Laws to pursue their own agenda, namely the protection by Law of the Holocaust Religion/Dogma. 






Free speech a casualty of 'hate' powers


Lying by legislation




ADL drafted US hate crime legislation
