The behaviour we saw last night in Caulfield by individuals provocatively protesting in an area home to many people of the Jewish faith was absolutely disgusting.
It was a deliberate act of incitement designed to end in violence. And predictably it did.
These scenes have no place in our country and should be totally and utterly condemned.
The Jewish community in Australia is rightly scared for their safety at the moment, and we all have a responsibility to call out vile antisemitism when it rears its ugly head – as it did last night in Caulfield.
Enough is enough.
