Jewish Community Council of WA condemns attack on Mosque in Thornlie

29 June 2016

The Jewish Community Council of Western Australia expresses its total abhorrence at the nonsensical and violent act of vandalism and anti-Islam graffiti carried out at the Australian Islamist College and Mosque in Thornlie. We are gratified that no injuries occurred.

We, as the Jewish community of Western Australia, support and encourage the harmonious and respectful relationships between not only our fellow West Australians of the Islamic faith but of all Western Australians, of whatever religion or background. 

Any group or individuals who attempt to undermine the harmony and unity of West Australian society are trying to damage the very fabric of the multi-culturalism of Western Australia. They should be dealt with to the full extent of the law.
