Rita Panahi: The Bondi Synagogue Decision Rewards Terrorism

What she says:

"There’s something perverse about trying to reduce the risk of Islamist terror by making a decision that accommodates the most violent, intolerant members of the community.

Victim blaming has reached new lows when government authorities cave in to extremists and punish victims for being the targets of hate.

It’s akin to the twisted thinking that forces women to cover their bodies to reduce the incidence of sexual assault.

The rights of a peaceful religious minority should not be impinged upon in a free society. The Jewish community has every right to label this decision as “rewarding terrorism”."
