⁣Australia appoints anti-semitism envoy

PM Anthony Albanese has appointed a special envoy to “preserve social cohesion” by tackling anti-semitism, but will only appoint a similar role to tackle Islamophobia at a later date.

Jilian Segal will be tasked with fighting antisemitism’s “age-old hatred,” which she highlighted by pointing out a 700% increase in incidents against Jews in Australia since the Gaza conflict began.

The Jewish Council of Australia, however, says such a move will only worsen division by conflating antisemitism with criticism of Israel’s campaign or support for Palestine.
