Resident ‘Disgusted’ by Anti-Semitic Flyers Distributed to Jewish Homes in Bondi, Sydney

August 25, 2014 3:11 pm 35 comments

One of the anti-Semitic flyers handed out in Bondi, New South Wales.

Residents of a predominantly Jewish street in Bondi, a suburb of Sydney, Australia were “disgusted” to awake to anti-Semitic flyers slipped under their doors on Monday morning, The Algemeiner has learned.

The pamphlets were hand delivered in mail boxes and included classic tropes about Jews controlling the media and being responsible for “race mixing” and “drug abuse.”

“Jews have been kicked out of countries 109 times through history,” the flyer claimed, “Could it be that having them in a European country is harmful to the host?”

The mail concluded with an invitation to join Squadron 88, a local white power group. The ‘About’ section on the hate group’s Facebook page reads: “squadron 88 is a NSW based group , the …… man was the tiller of the soil, this is our land. FIGHT FOR YOUR KINSMEN AND NATION”.

The message also included a reference to Stormfront.org a renowned neo-Nazi community website.

Abraham Blasenstein, a Jewish resident of Bodi who received the flyer, told The Algemeiner: “It is part of an increase in anti-Semitism that such low people as the ones who issued these flyers feel comfortable coming out of the woodwork.”

“At first disgusted,” Blasenstein said of his reaction to receiving the mail, “It is not a pleasant thought that there are some people that would like to do the worst to you for no reason other than their cruel character. It was the smallest touch of what it must have felt like for Jews in Europe before WWII. There, there was no hope and no support, at least now in Australia it is reasonable to believe that most decent people will find this type of leaflet appalling.”

Blasenstein said that he did not notify police of the incident but that some of his neighbors passed the flyers onto members of Australia’s Jewish Board of Deputies, who, he said, may “pursue this to the extent possible.”

Asked to estimate how many of the offending pamphlets were handed out, he said, “Typically these sort of things are done in the thousands if not tens of thousands.”

“Everyone in my street received these,” he said.

Earlier this month five teenagers were arrested in Sydney after storming a private school bus and taunting Jewish children with anti-Semitic slurs and threatening to slit their throats.

  • SO WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

  • Kevin Herbert

    It can be safely said that most of the racist comments posted anonymously above, have been posted by Zionists.

    Fake anti semitism is on the rise globally, as Israel’s latest genocide against the Palestinians destroys Zionism’s image.

  • You can’t put brains in a monument assuming that these morons have a brain. I often wonder whether these poor misguided lumps of dog excrement have met a Jewish person and have spent some time with them, they might find that they would learn something worthwhile instead of hate. But low life’s will remain lowlifes and the lemmings will follow the leader over the cliff. Good riddens to bad rubbish.

  • God is protecting the people of israel just like the bible says fools.u.s.open your eyes,pres. Nixon did belive in the bible and so do i !

  • You will find the squadron88 types in the down under the low life section! Garbage

  • Yeah, the same time they complain about jews they probably preach about Jesus, a jew! Remeber, Hitler was running a Christian Nation.

  • I welcome Squadron 88 and applaud their rapid growth. 14/88

    • The more traitorous is the western countries who imported muslim invaders and facilitate the islamization of the west. Honorless cowards.

    • Hey You Useful Idiot

      I welcome your one-way ticket to join the other ISIS muppets.

    • Lucius
      Your a coward . Why would someone hate Jews when you can’t say one thing bad we have done ever. You see these animals cutting heads off and killing each other .
      You are either jealous or have so much envy it drives you crazy that we are smart and work hard for our money. Your just low scum
      I wish I can be in Austria now I would show squadron 88 how a US JEW would do to them !!!! They wouldn’t be able to hand out fliers after I would be done with them !!!

  • A Cancer that spreads worldwide like the plague from the UK to Australia. Natanyahu warned that it will soon be playing at a theater near you.

  • This happens because being a Jew hater is safe. So cowards can scream their hate, (or slip it under doors) with no fear of penalty. Maybe it’s time to change that?

  • kRIS kRISTIAN

    THIS IS FROM SICK MINDS.

    88 STANDS FOR ‘heil hitler

  • I love the irony that Squadron 88 uses Facebook! Don’t they know it was created by Jews???!!! I bet they use cell phones, too!

  • This is evil and cowardly, are some people so dumb that they cannot see where all this hatred leads to. I was raised as a protestant, am now a Christian, one of my pals at school was Jewish, he and his family were good people
    Someone has said all that needs to happen for evil to flourish, is for good people to do nothing. Do we slink into the shadows or do we stand with the nation of Israel. I fully stand with Israel and the action they are taking against hamas. They have a duty to protect their citizens, James

  • What a Load of Crap!
    Stupid is .. as Stupid Dose

  • DISGUSTING, SHAME ON THEM!, INFESTED WITH SUCH HATE, THE EVIL YOU DO, SHALL COME BACK TO YOU..

  • Idiots can’t even spell ‘semitism’

  • This is disgusting. It is happening all over the world. The Jews are being blamed for all the worlds ills.
    It is of course the Islamic militants that are responsible for the killing, murder and terror in this world.
    It’s about time the world woke up. After they have finished with the Jews they will come after you all.

  • Living in Australia the Anti Semites are raising there ugly heads

    • Kevin Herbert

      Where’s the proof re the rise of anti semtism..a term I reject due to its ethno religious supremacism overtones.
      Further, I contend there’s no such thing as ‘anti-semitism’ – there is only racism. The late 19th century Zionist proposition that racism against one ethnic group (of Jews), is more heinous than that against another group, is both intellectually & morally repugnant.It’s tantamount to saying that a Vietnamese child napalmed in the US genocide of 3 million Vietnamese is not as immoral an act as the gassing of a child in Nazi holocaust.
      The world is waking up from the tsunami of Zionist propaganda of the past 60 years.

  • And I thought Australians were different from Europeans :(

  • Julian Clovelley

    Don’t worry

    The Australian reaction would have been the normal:

    “What’s this rubbish!”

    I know it’s upsetting but this is rather like the drunk teenagers incident, Sometimes a few Australians can be very silly. But truly we aren’t like that – which is why we live here.

    Bondi is a lovely beach suburb where vast numbers of people happily share a beautiful beach, well protected by lifeguards lest surfers and swimmers run into danger

    Everyone welcome

  • google: crying wolf, hate crimes hoaxes in america. israheili intel is running a worldwide propaganda op with its agents running stories about “rising tide of anti semitism”. but it is all a lie, just propaganda designed to get sympathy for the “poor jews, i.e. zionist thugs” who are committing mass murder in gaza. just google: rising tide of anti semitism…………you can see the operation for yourself.

    • Hey You Useful Idiot

      Hush now, time for your meds….shhhh…what did nurse say about using Mummy’s computer without permission?

      • Kevin Herbert

        The rise of hasbara led fake anti semitism cannot be denied.

        Just Google it….then run off at the mouth

        • Who really believes Kevin Herbert above. He’s a known anti Semite and organiser of the BDS in Sydney, he comments to suit his own agenda and attacks anything Israel. He also has an axe to grind after losing his job and having to work as a labourer whilst in his 50’s.

    • Richard Renton

      @truth: There it is all over again: the canard that “the Jews control everything.” And simply because it’s on the internet, it must be true. Not so, but I know you’ll disagree with me. The current conflict in Gaza has fuelled these memes, but it seems nobody is looking at the other side. What if the problem weren’t “the Jews,” but another group instead?

      How would you react if, say, you lived in Manhattan, and a group in New Jersey started launching rockets against your piece of land? Rockets launched from schools, hospitals and even places of worship. Rockets aimed at schools, hospitals and places of worship. At the rate of 6 or 7 EVERY HOUR? I know what would happen: your President would order the elimination of every rocket launch site, every perpetrator, and every piece of armament the group possesses, until nothing is left of the group.

      Now swap Manhattan for Israel, and Hamas for New Jersey.

      Reminds me of the kid who was accused of breaking a window. He replied that Johnny had done it. When asked how Johnny had broken the window, he said, “I threw a rock at him and he ducked.” Go figure.

      Now watch this for another side of the situation:

  • The police should be notified about the Anti-Semitic flyers. Sadly, it’s no longer reasonable to believe that most decent people would find that type of leaflet appalling. When many people can no longer discern the difference between right and wrong, it’s unrealistic to believe they would be appalled.

  • E Pluribus Wombat

    Human Rights Watch has already blamed that on the…..Jews.

A contestant is eliminated after each round. Hecht, 32, said that while the dishes and utensils were new, the kitchen was not kosher, so he couldn’t taste […]

    Religion, Politics and the Origins of Palestine Refugee Relief by Asaf Romirowsky & Alexander H. Joffe (Palgrave Macmillan; 2013) Although this book came out several years ago, it remains pertinent. This is a meticulously researched book that concentrates on a very small bit of history: the time period from 1948-50 when the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker group, was organizing refugee relief in Gaza. Before UNRWA, the UN created the United Nations Relief for Palestine Refugees (UNRPR). It outsourced […]
