The victim was hospitalized for injuries sustained in the “horrific kidnapping and torture,” a police statement said.
While police haven't yet lifted the gag on the motive behind the attack, the Australian Jewish Association said the motive was antisemitic.
“Well-known anti-Israel activist has been arrested on allegations of arranging kidnap and torture of a man because he worked for a Jew!"
Australia had seen a 700 percent increase in antisemitic incidents in the aftermath of the October 7 atrocities by Hamas.
