HATE CRIME: Lefty Hulls-appointed magistrate cheers on anti-Israel bigots

Anti israel egypt 450Magistrate Simon Garnett, according to the cock-a-hoop ABC, has given the green-light to Israel-hating bigots to continue a series of boycotts against a Jewish-owned chain of chocolate shops.

They report:

A Magistrate ruled the protesters were exercising their human rights and said their demonstration was lawful.

Magistrate Simon Garnett also found the protesters did not threaten the peace or disrupt the public order.

He also criticised the police response in some arrests, describing it as ‘heavy-handed’.

We can only assume the Hulls-appointed Magistrate enforced the laws of the land impartially and appropriately but we agree with the bigots when they say the ramifications are huge.

“It’s a victory for our capacity to protest in places where corporations have previously said they controlled,” she said.

“It’s also useful for us to know that the QV management have no right to say we are not allowed to express our political opinions within that space.”

If the Magistrate’s right and the Green activist Vashti Kenway is right about the legal situation, then it’s clear enough what must be done: the law must be changed to spare Jewish-owned businesses the protests and business-destroying Nazi-style boycotts of those who disguise themselves as anti-Zionists and anti-Israel.

If it was merely about protesting against Israel or its government, the protest would occur at an Israeli consulate or embassy, not at a chocolate shop, not terrorising its customers, its young staff and worried owners whose only connection with the government of Israel is an ethnic one.

Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it. This cannot be allowed to stand.

WEDNESDAY UPDATE:

Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu sees it very clearly indeed, directing his Attorney-General to review laws to shut down these Nazi-style attacks:

“The BDS group in my opinion is better titled as bigoted, dangerous and shameful,” Mr Baillieu said. “They have sought to close down businesses just because they are associated with the state of Israel.”

Mr Baillieu said he had asked Attorney-General Robert Clark to work with police to determine what action needed to be taken, refusing to rule out legislative changes to prevent a repeat of Mr Garnett’s decision on the trespass charges.

“I remain very concerned when there’s any protest that seeks to close down a business,” Mr Baillieu said. “Certainly I believe from what I’ve seen is that with this particular protest that was their intention.”

The Israel-hating bigots intend to return to shut-down Max Brenner again this coming Friday.

  1. Hulls is a piece of dog-shit on the crepe sole of history.
    Unfortunately the smell lingers.

  2. Ha, ha, ha, ha, good outcome.

    The IDF chocolate soldiers will melt, like they did in South Lebanon in 2006, on hearing this news.

    Also why were so many police at the court today. Sounds like intimidation or at show of strength.

  3. The BDS was started by Jews in Israel.

    Why should Australian’s support illegal companies operating in the illegal settlements in the west bank and why is the Australian media so compliant with the whines of Israel and so indifferent to the rights of the Palestinians.

    It’s nothing to do with fucking bigotry.

  7. @Marilyn, utter hogwash, many of these so called “illegal companies” (which ruling in law makes them illegal anyway?) provide employment for your beloved Palestinians in the so called “west bank”, why would you want to deprive them of a livelihood? Sure as hell the PA and hamas in Gaza have done their best to deprive their own people of basic human rights, including policital rights, education and specifically the rights of women, minorities and gays, so why would you want Israel to follow suit and deprive these people of a chance at work as well?

    You are typical of the psuedo-intellectual, holier than thou greens voting bigot, you attach yourself to an issue claiming you know the be all and end all of the issue in order to project a sense of moral superiority yet you have not a clue of any of the issues you claim to have a moral stake in. Spare me your typical faux-indignation and staged moral outrage, you couldn’t give a toss about the palestinians or any so called “oppressed” people, just like you and your fellow greens voting charlatans do not and have never uttered so much as a peep at the real suffering of Syrians at this moment in time for example, let alone even suggested a boycott of Syrian businesses and goods. The sooner the likes of you and your party are flushed down the political toilet never to return, the better for us all.

  8. Marilyn, can you provide a source that the BDS movement was started by Jews in Israel, cause I’m pretty sure you’re wrong. And by pretty sure, I mean completely positive.

  9. The 10 anniversary of the comes up in March 2013. The ban on Americans was lifted when Obama withdrew the troops from Iraq but the oppression of the Palestinians continues so the ban on Israelis continues.

    Not that any have wanted accommodation locally as there are no Synagogues or any other religious building for that matter.

    Good to hear today that the Syrian Government (for how long I wonder)will not use chemical weapons on its OWN people.

  18. The Lord Mayor this morning on ABC774 was talking about changing the law. This is what democracy is about, the courts say these people were within their rights and the court gets attacked.
    But the Lord Mayor then said “why do they pick on the Max Brenner shops as supporters of Israel, why don’t they attack Chandstone the Gandels are supporters of Israel or Westfield Lowy is a supporter of Israel, etc.” He should have gone on to tell us what other businesses are owned by Jews and support Israel.

    So all Jewish owned businesses support Israel and how many are there? Is this the “enemy within”.

    Recently in the USA the editor/publisher of the Atlanta Jewish Times was so arrogant with the obvious power of the US Jewish Lobby that he said – “Give the go-ahead for US-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies,” – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/fury-over-jewish-editors-call-to-assassinate-barack-obama/story-e6frf7lf-1226251068124

  25. Ho Hum ,the usual islamist groupies Duo Jackson & Marilyn Shepperd blah blah,
    The Palestinians would like to drag the Israelis down to their level but fortunately that aint going to happen guys.
    The Lebos lock them up in Beirut refugee Camps the Jordanians boot them out the rest of the Arab world use them as cannon fodder as an excuse to keep fighting the Jews.
    Well al’Jacko and Co. just look around the Middle East and surrounds the Iranians under sanctions Yemen, Tunisia in Chaos , Egypt, Libya, Syria , Iraq and Afghanistan all fighting amongst themselves, hopefully that will go on for a long time this way less time to worry about killing Jews.
    Meanwhile the Israelis will keep contributing to the world in every field, their economy is relatively strong and hopefully they will extend their anti- suicide bomb security barrier and keep the barbarians out.
    The Palestinians will also keep fighting amongst them selves as well thats for sure.
    I have seen the usual Friday night
    demos outside Max Brenners which is usually full up with customers anyway , the Socialist Alternative thugs, Asylum seeker/Refugee activists, Muslim community members, Pal lobbyists and other loosers.
    Its interesting these guys don’t do the same thing outside Syrian Kebab shops but hey I guess what is going on in Syria is what we expects from these types so it is nothing new .

    The boycott campaign against the Max Brenner Chocolate Shops had more wind taken out of its sails this week when the group announced it was expanding its Australian activities into the hotel market.

    With 28 chocolate shops a;ready established in Australia, the chocalatier has struck deals with the Stamford Hotels and Resorts, Blue Sydney [Taj Hotel] and the Radisson Blu Plaza.

    Yael Kaminski, the company’s general manager in Australia told media that he was “very excited to be venturing into the area of brand partnerships”.

    That the Palestinians subjected daily to Israel mass murder and land theft managed to field any sort of Olympic team is amazing.

    That they managed to navigate Israels numerous check points without being subjected to Israel trail by missiles and indefinite detention and get to the UK, leaves one completely gobsmacked.

  47. The purpose of protesting Max Brenner sending chocolates to IDF (occupying)soldiers in the West Bank is not to shut Max Brenner down, or even (realistically) to harm Israel’s economy. The point of this protest is to create an opportunity to talk about the occupation, expanding settlements, and therefore about a Palestinian State, why there isn’t one yet, chances of peace, a One State Solution, etc. Every time you bite, Vexnews, you give them what they want.

    In contrast to the backward Palestinian terror- torries and Arab dictatorships , theifdoms where it is the rule of guns, bombs , corruption and Oil money that counts.

    It is for these reasons why Israel is recognized as the only democracy in the ‘Muddle’ east . Notwithstanding it may have it’s flaws like Australia, American and other democracies . As much as the naive West hope that the Arab spring will see the barbaric Arab leaders kicked out it is obvious to anyone that understand the mentality of these tribal people that they can only live under chaos and violence.Only the Muslim Brotherhood will be the winners.

  68. The BDS movement and protests against Max Brenner are supported and participated in by a diverse group of people including “Jews for Palestine”. They are very active in the organisation of these protests. Do any of you realise this protest is against Max Brenner’s shops specifically because they prove material support to the IDL? And that I can confidently say the people at these protests are not anti-semites, just anti-occupation etc?? A significant number of protesters ARE Jewish. The pic that you have posted with this article is misleading and is not from any protests that have occurred in Melbourne. Also, Vashti Kenway is not a member of or supporter of the Greens. You may be a rabid zionist, but try to get some of your facts straight next time.

  71. The Prime Minister of the Tel Aviv
    occupation government in Palestine is trying to get the US government interest in his option to attack Iran but they are not interested in another foreign war nor can the US afford it even if they wanted another war.

    The real reason the PM is talking war as that his economy is failing, public housing for immigrants is costly and in short supply, the cost of living is high and unemployment is increasing in the Tel Aviv government. It is a distraction from the incompetence of the Tel Aviv government.
