The Executive Council of Australian Jewry is threatening to withdraw from the World Jewish Congress. The council said it would pull out in July unless the congress withdraws its defamation suit against one of its former senior vice presidents, the Jerusalem-based Australian, Isi Leibler. Leibler, who is being sued in a Tel Aviv court, was expelled from the congress’ steering committee in 2004 following a published report in which Leibler alleged financial improprieties at the congress.
