Jennine Khalik’s Post Journalism Career ‘Karma’

In doing some research for yesterday’s post on Israel-hater Jennine Khalik, I found out that she has left the world of journalism entirely, and is now working as a Social Media and Content Manager for a legal tech startup. I mention this not in order to encourage any of you to jeopardize her employment (don’t); as vile as I find her views, she is entitled to them and I distinguish this from cases where people are disseminating blatant, vile antisemitic tropes and the like, designed to incite against the Jewish people. Besides, I am glad she is out of journalism and hope she stays out for good.

My reason for mentioning this is for another reason. It leads to a very interesting coincidence.

The CEO of the company is Tom Dreyfus. As the surname suggests, he comes from a Jewish family, with his father being Australian politician and former Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus.

Tom’s grandfather’s name was Alfred Dreyfus, who shares a name with the Jewish French military officer whose unjust conviction for trumped up charges of treason helped make a Zionist out of Theodore Herzl, the founder of the political form of Zionism – ultimately leading to the reestablishment of the Jewish homeland.

How’s that for karma!

Update: It gets even better. Tom used to be a solicitor at Arnold Bloch Leibler. This is the same firm Australian lawyer and human rights advocate Nyadol Nyuon used to work for. Why am I mentioning this? A few months ago, Khalik attacked Nyadol after the latter opposed the Sydney Festival boycotters’ tactics. As part of this verbal attack, Khalik brought up her working for “Zionist lobbyist Mark Leibler,” who she claims came for her.

Now Khalik has no problem working for someone who used to work for this “Zionist lobbyist.”
