NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell says there will be zero tolerance for religious discrimination following an apparent anti-semitic attack in Sydney.

Four men and a woman were taken to hospital after a melee broke out on Blair St, Bondi, early Saturday morning.

Police said they had received reports the group had walked past eight men who made anti-Semitic comments towards them.

“There is no place for anyone to be attacked on the basis of their beliefs or religious background,” Mr O’Farrell said on Monday.

Citizenship and Communities Minister Victor Dominello denounced the attack as un-Australian and unacceptable.

 5 JEWS INJURED IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA IN UNPROVOKED ANTI-SEMITIC ATTACK“Everyone has the right to feel safe on the streets of NSW,” he said.

Two 17-year-old youths and a 23-year-old man have been charged over the matter.

    Where does it suggest the attackers were Muslim?
