Australian Jews Upset at Israeli's Muslim Comments


JEWS UPSET AT ACADEMIC'S MUSLIM COMMENTS

The Jewish Board of Deputies has distanced itself from comments by an Israeli academic who says Australia should limit its number of Muslim immigrants.

Professor Raphael Israeli is quoted in the Australian Jewish News as saying that without such a migration cap Australia risks being swamped by Indonesians.

But Prof Israeli told Fairfax newspapers his comments had been misunderstood.

"When the Muslim population gets to a critical mass you have problems," he told Fairfax.

"That is the general rule - so if it applies everywhere, it applies in Australia."
