Mr Malcolm Turnbull, the federal Communications Minister, called for zero tolerance of racism following the incident.

 

``Violence of this kind and, in particular, racist violence, anti-Semitic violence, is completely unacceptable in our society,'' he said.

  

Hospital spokesman David Faktor said that according to the victims – four men aged 27, 39, 49 and 66 wearing yarmulkes and a 62-year-old woman – there was no provocation on their part. "You certainly don't come to Bondi and expect that," Mr Faktor said. "Maybe in Germany in the 1930s and Russia in the 1970s but, certainly in Sydney, Australia, Bondi, you just don't expect an unprovoked attack," he added.
