Australia Bans Building of Synagogues because “Terrorism”

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

A well known town in Australia has “banned the construction of a synagogue because it could be a terrorist target”.

The ban was placed by the local city council, but then upheld in court. 

“Jewish leaders are shocked the decision appears to suggest they cannot freely practice their religion because they are the target of hate by Islamist extremists — and that the council has used their own risk assessment (and facility protection and mitigation strategies) of the threat posed by IS against it.”

“The head of the local Jewish community said the council and the court had effectively stifled freedom of religion and rewarded terrorism.  “The decision is unprecedented,” said the rabbi, “Its implications are enormous. It basically implies that no Jewish organisation should be allowed to exist in residential areas. It stands to stifle Jewish existence and activity in Sydney and indeed, by creating a precedent, the whole of Australia, and by extension rewarding terrorism.”

The Jewish board noted, “they had never heard of any other religious group being denied a place of worship just because they were targeted by outside extremists”.

“the Court appeared to use the proposal’s own risk assessment and security measures in the proposed design — including using setback buildings and blast walls — as evidence the site was too much of a security risk.”

So there you have it.  Being Jewish is “too much of a risk” and Jews are denied places of worship in Australia, a primary country of “Western civilization” because terrorism and Islamic attitudes are allowed to flourish in their country.

The end of the vaunted Western civilization Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Worship, and the protection of those freedoms and minority members of society.

And as I remind my readers, the Jews are often the first but NEVER the last.  The new dark ages are advancing…may we see this as a harbinger of Moshiach!


  1. Good Erev Shabbat Akiva and Family. I’m so glad you picked up on this. I read it and gasped. Such audacity!

    But we know this is just the “stick of Hashem” telling His children to abandon the golus and move to Eretz Yisrael (not Israel, but to our Yerusha, the Promised Land of Eretz Yisrael).

  2. Blame Israel. When it itself claims Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount is too dangerous IN ISRAEL, then their is justification to limit it in other places as well.
