Bondi and The Holocaust: The Fallout From The Attacks

From the editor:

bondi attack2Along with horror, the Bondi attacks have elicited much debate.

Was the Anti-Defamation League cheapening the memory of the Holocaust in its comparisons?

Was the Australian media missing in action?

Did the Greens take too long to respond when the Muslim Women’s association was able to condemn the attacks almost immediately?

Is racist violence worse – as a number of people are suggesting - than other kinds?

Was there a rush to blame Muslims for the attack?

Are laws against racial vilification the solution to such violence?

Was the attack a freak occurrence or was it a symptom of a greater problem?
