Review of the Year (2002) in Foreign Countries: Australia

By Colin L. Rubenstein

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2002

Economic downturn and an end-of-the-year election caused Australia some anxiety as the 20th century ended. Australia remained largely supportive of Israel. Significant elements of Australian media continued to demonstrate bias against Israel and neglected to provide context for a full understanding of Israeli-Palestinian relations. Antisemitic incidents increased substantially. Immigration, especially from the former Soviet Union, contributed to the growth of Australia's Jewish community.
