Triple Treat! Bad News For The Bad Guys Down Under

Some bad news for the bad guys Down Under.

First up, “Mr Nothingburger” Hash Tayeh finds himself in the frying pan (so to speak):

Palestinian activist and businessman Hashem Tayeh has been told he will be arrested next week by Victoria Police over allegations he incited hatred of Jewish people while leading protests against Israel’s war in Gaza.

The 33-year-old owner of the Burgertory chain has been notified by police he will be arrested and interviewed as part of an investigation into whether chants and speeches at a series of rallies and demonstrations in the CBD have breached the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act.

A source familiar with the investigation, who cannot speak publicly about the ongoing legal matter, said Tayeh was formally notified by a detective he was under investigation on Thursday, but that no charge had yet been laid.

He has been instructed to attend a police station at an agreed time next week, where he will be arrested and interviewed in the presence of his lawyer.

Tayeh has emerged as a prominent organiser and leader of the protest movement in Victoria over the past nine months, which formed after Israel invaded and blockaded the Gaza Strip in the wake of Hamas’ October 7 attacks.

Tayeh declined to comment. On social media he has repeatedly rejected allegations he is antisemitic, saying the claims were unfounded and incorrect.

The detective is investigating whether Tayeh broke the law by reciting chants such as “all Zionists are terrorists” and other statements equating Zionism with terrorism, and whether Tayeh’s involvement in organising the protest movement amounts to a crime.

The legislation makes “serious vilification” on the basis of race or religion a crime punishable by six months’ jail. This includes intentionally engaging in conduct that is likely to incite hatred against a person or class of persons and to threaten, or incite others to threaten, physical harm towards that person or class of persons or their property.

I hope someone draws attention to the police also Tayeh’s antisemitic social media posts, which I have documented on here.

Would you like fries with that? Here they are: violent thug Mohammad Sharab may be in further trouble than he already is for being a violent thug:

A Victorian Jewish MP has called on police to investigate a pro-Palestinian activist who called for the death of America and other western countries during a protest in Melbourne this week.

Deputy Liberal leader David Southwick on Wednesday referred Mohammad Sharab, who is already on bail for unrelated kidnapping charges, to both Victoria Police and the Australian Federal Police.

The Herald Sun has obtained footage of Mr Sharab delivering a six-minute rant to a crowd of protesters outside Melbourne’s US embassy earlier this month.

“When we say death to America and death to Israel. We say death to the colony, death to the greed, death to the terrorism of the United States,” he said.

“It is called the United Terrorist States of America. That’s what they are united for. They are united for terrorism, for killing, for genocide and for stolen lands.”

Mr Sharab, who was wearing a keffiyeh and a hat in the colours of the Palestinian flag, vowed to “pass the message of resistance”.

“We are rising against the colony … I say bring back the armed resistance. I say give America what it deserves – death,” he said.

“We might not have the numbers but we have the consciousness and the will to keep rising up to come up and put an end to this colony.

“The colony will fall. The USA will fall. Israel will fall. Germany will fall. France will fall. The UK will fall. All those colonies will fall. We will keep passing on the message. We will keep passing the message of resistance.

“We are the people. Power to the people.”

Mr Southwick requested Australian Federal Police commissioner Reece Kershaw investigate whether Mr Sharab’s comments were a breach of both state and Commonwealth anti-vilification, anti-incitement or anti-terrorism laws.

In other videos shared to his Instagram, Mr Sharab also indicated support for Hamas.

“Long live the resistance, long live f****** Hamas,” he said in one video obtained by the Herald Sun.

As revealed by the Herald Sun last month, Mr Sharab has also been repeatedly wearing the Hamas logo which in some circumstances is illegal under federal law.

The Criminal Code bans the display of a terrorist organisation symbol in a public place in certain circumstances, with a penalty of 12 months imprisonment.

The AFP last month told the Herald Sun it would act if it saw offences being committed.

“The AFP is aware of continuing protests and physical demonstrations used to amplify the messaging of extremist groups, including use of gestures,” a spokesman said.

“The community can be assured that law enforcement remains alert to these protests and activities closely, and if there is evidence of criminal activity, such as the incitement or urging of violence, law enforcement – including the AFP – will act.”

And now for the ketchup on top:

Sara Saleh who was employed by the Australian Human Rights Commission as a policy officer and was posting social media content calling for the abolition of Israel.

However, Saleh was allowed to keep her role for more than two and a half months. 

This was until Ray Hadley put questions about it to the AHRC yesterday and her resignation was then announced.

Here’s hoping there more of the same to come for this wretched hive of scum and villainy.
