The Victorian Jewish Board of Deputies protested today to Australian television officials against the appearance on a TV program of Eric Butler, Australia’s most notorious anti-Semite.

The Board, in its protest, described Butler as “Australia’s leading hate peddler.” He was presented on the television program as a “responsible expert” on Communism, foreign affairs and race relations.
