Austria: Foreign Minister calls for peace, attacked with antisemitic postings

Austria’s foreign minister said he would file police complaints against people who posted anti-Semitic comments on his Facebook page after he called for peace between Israel and Hamas.

“We will submit a statement of facts to the prosecutor’s office to examine the hate postings,” said Sebastian Kurz, according to a report in the online edition of the Heute tabloid on Wednesday.

The daily did not repeat any of the reportedly anti-Semitic statements. Kurz, 27, is not Jewish.

Over the past few days, Kurz has appealed to both sides in the Gaza conflict to stop the violence in official statements and on Facebook.
