Australian MP’s Office Damaged in “Politically Motivated Attack”

Unknown individuals damaged the office of Australian MP Josh Burns in the town of St. Kilda, located southeast of the city of Melbourne, on June 18th.

The individuals reportedly smashed the windows of the office and wrote in red spray paint, “Zionism is fascism.” Local police also said the group lit small fires in the telecommunications pits in front of the building before running away.

Burns said in a statement that he is in “contact with the Federal Police” and is awaiting further advice.” He also said his team will not be at the office until they are told “it is safe to do so,” but they are still committed to help the community.

Burns is a member for the district of Macnamara and is Jewish.
