Sky News host Rita Panahi has slammed the “pathetic” response of Victoria Premier Jacinta Allan to the violent pro-Palestine protest in Melbourne on Friday night.
The scenes which erupted at the Caulfield rally triggered an evacuation of a nearby synagogue during a Shabbat service.
“Premier Jacinta Allan –pathetic response,” Ms Panahi said.
Ms Panahi said the Victorian Premier provided “no moral clarity whatsoever” in her tweet after the incident.
“She makes references to ‘there is never any place for anti-Semitism or Islamophobia in Victoria’ – that’s how she ends the statement.”
