(Page 2 - Previous Page)Australia sees increased anti-Semitism
Anti-Semitic incidents have increased in Australia, a Jewish group there said. The Australian Jewish News (AJN) reported Monday on a study by the Executive Council of Australian Jewry that cited 442 anti-Semitic incidents from October 2005 to September 2006, an increase of 110 incidents over the same period a year earlier.
Jeremy Jones, author of the study, said incidents spiked in July, after Israel's war with Hezbollah began, though he noted that the number already had been above average in preceding months, the AJN report.
