Jewish Community condemns online racist cricketing abuse
The JCCV has been informed about material appearing on a group page on Facebook, a website where users can establish interest groups. Ash Peake, a member of McKinnon Cricket Club, created the ‘F.U. Ajax Cricket Club!' group in June of this year. Mr Peake, the self-described ‘President' invited his friends to comment upon the Maccabi Ajax Cricket Club without fear of censorship. Swearing and abuse is encouraged, he wrote.
His friends happily obliged. In a few short weeks, in June and July of this year, Mr Peake's group site attracted a dozen comments, most of them offensive in the extreme. Simon Galloway, self-described as ‘Deputy Vice-President in charge of Holocaust References' wrote that the group should install a f***ing Rheem. In context, the JCCV understands this to be a reference to the use of gas by the Nazis to kill Jews during the Holocaust. Jeremy Davies wrote that the AJAX 3rdXI should have won easily against McKinnon, but they nearly choked ... probably on the gas. A Mr Ben Grant described AJAX members as human goats.
The worst comment was by Alex Strauch, apparently a member of the Beaumaris Cricket Club, who said:
Being of German heritage, I think I need to apoligise for [AJAX Cricket Club] to still be in existence, my grandparents tried to get them all...but its easier said than done when they are walking around in sewers trying to find change.
Anton Block, President of the JCCV, says: "This kind of sledging by mindless racists is unacceptable. No member of any sporting club should be subject to abuse such as this, no matter what their race or religion. It is simply un-Australian."
The JCCV condemns this material in the strongest terms.
