Australian Man Charged With Terror Offenses After Allegedly Making Videos Showing How to Kill Jews
An Australian man has been arrested and charged with terror offenses after he allegedly published videos online in which he called on other people to kill Jews, the country’s 9 News reported on Thursday.
According to the report, the 50-year-old suspect, a resident of the Adelaide suburb of Flinders Park whose name and image have been withheld, made videos that included “graphic and explicit instructions” and “physical demonstrations on how to commit the acts.”
The report said the videos still can be seen online and have drawn thousands of views.
Australian police officers told 9 News there were no “current or impending threats” related to the arrest.
The suspect’s next court appearance will be in February.
In recent years, as reported by The Algemeiner, the Australian Jewish community has been on edge due to the arrests of a number of ISIS suspects in the country and rising antisemitism.
In December 2014, three people — including the armed Iranian-born Australian Muslim hostage-taker — were killed when police stormed a cafe in central Sydney following a 16-hour standoff.
