SYDNEY, Australia (JTA) -- A neo-Nazi music festival has been allowed to go ahead in Australia, "appalling" Jewish community leaders.
Jason Steinberg, president of the Queensland Jewish Board of Deputies, said the Hammered Music Festival scheduled for April in Brisbane was “not acceptable to any decent organization or to any religious groups.”
The annual festival has been linked to white supremacist groups and neo-Nazis.
The police and city council say nothing can be done to stop the festival unless the law is broken. The location has not been publicized.
