A theater in Australia's Sydney refused to allow a series of performances about the Holocaust because it judged the organizer to be supportive of Zionism.
"Our policy does not support colonialism/Zionism. Therefore we do not host groups that support the colonisation and occupation of Palestine," the theater told the group in an email.
"To categorically reject an approach by a Jewish organisation to hire your premises because of a political position that your team holds in relation to an overseas conflict is at best ill-informed and at worst racist and discriminatory," the head of the Jewish Board of Deputies of New South Wales, Vic Alhadeff, told Jewish-oriented Australian news site J-Wire.
The Marrickville municipality, where the theater is located, previously attempted to implement a boycott of Israel which explicitly equated the country with apartheid-era South Africa, according to Australian media.
