Australian PM announces appointment of envoy to combat antisemitism

Australia’s prime minister appoints a special envoy to tackle antisemitism in the country, urging his compatriots to avoid being “torn apart” by tensions over the war in Gaza.

The naming of the antisemitism special envoy, Jillian Segal, is a “critical step” to easing tensions in Australia as a result of the Middle East fighting, he says.

“Australians are deeply concerned about this conflict, and many are hurting. In times like this, Australians must come together, not be torn apart.”
