A Jewish man has reportedly been harassed while driving in a suburb of Melbourne.

The CFCA reported that the man was pursued by a very aggressive driver.

They then stopped alongside each other at some traffic lights. The man in the other car unleashed a torrent of antisemitic abuse, shouting about the “fucking Jews” and bringing up the “occupied territories”.

According to the definition of antisemitism, “holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel” is antisemitic. Beyond this, whilst some people may feel a bubble of security when in their own cars, harassing someone who is driving is still extremely dangerous.

Further details are not yet known.
