‘A proud day for the community’

Zionism Victoria this week congratulated Josh Burns on his re-election as Federal Member for Macnamara and Mark Dreyfus on his appointment as Attorney-General in the new Albanese Government.

Zionism Victoria president Yossi Goldfarb commented, “The swearing in of Mark Dreyfus as Attorney-General is a proud and historic moment for the Jewish community.

“Mark has always endorsed Israel’s right to defend itself when under fire, played a key role in the proscription of both Hamas and Hezbollah, and campaigned against race hatred and bigotry through his steadfast support of Section 18C.

“We are proud to have hosted him at a number of our events over the years, most recently at our rally for Israel in 2021 when he took to the stage – as he has done on previous occasions when the Jewish State was under fire – to publicly proclaim Israel’s right to protect its citizens from terrorism and rocket fire.”
