Rally Speaker Blames Jews for Airstrikes

“Talmudic Jews” who “run the White House” are to blame for the NATO airstrikes on Yugoslavia, which are part of an “anti- Christian” campaign, according to a speaker at a pro-Serbian rally held here.

Speaking to a crowd this week of close to 5,000 Serbian Australians, Jack King, who founded a group that opposes Australian anti-racism legislation, told the demonstrators that they should not be angry at Americans, but only at the government, which is influenced by “Talmudic Zionist Jews.”

During the past five years, King has used a number of platforms to spread his view that Jews should be placed in “commercial and social isolation.”

King has also testified in support of two people who were the subject of complaints for anti-Semitic behavior lodged by the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, Australia’s umbrella Jewish group.

Immediately following King’s speech, the rally’s master of ceremonies strongly dissociated himself from King’s views but said that the speakers’ platform was available for any one who wanted to state an opinion about NATO’s response to the Kosovo crisis.
