Extreme right-wing Islamists have started a vicious hate campaign against a prominent Sydney Muslim doctor for working with Jews in a charity to save sick children.
Jamal Rifi, a Belmore doctor in the western suburbs of Sydney, was attacked after giving his support to Project Rozana, a multi-religious Australian charity that brings critically ill Palestinian children to Israeli hospitals for life-saving treatment.
His support for the charity has led to a cruel reaction in both Australia and Lebanon by Islamists opposing Muslims and Jews working together because they say it & # 39; normalizes Israeli occupation & # 39 ;.

Extreme right-wing Islamists have dr. Jamal Rifi, a prominent Sydney Muslim, beaten for supporting a benevolent charitable organization that has critically ill Palestinian children brought to Israeli hospitals for treatment
The police are investigating the hate campaign against Dr. Rifi, who is of Lebanese descent, accused of being a Zionist employee, a traitor to his community and a spy.
Information sent from Sydney resulted in a request from nine lawyers to a military court in Lebanon, falsely claiming he was a member of an Israeli organization and aboard a & # 39; zionist & # 39; charity that seeks to establish a relationship of trust in an effort to develop a relationship with the enemy.
The application asks for his prosecution and possible imprisonment when he returns to visit family, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The application in Lebanon brings Dr. Rifi at risk of his life when he returns to visit, he believes.
& # 39; When I go to Lebanon, they stop me there & # 39 ;, he told Daily Mail Australia on Friday.
& # 39; It's a death sentence for me. & # 39;
& # 39; To say that I work for the Zionists is the same as saying that I am an enemy of my people. & # 39;
Dr. Rifi is on the board of the charity Project Rosana, alongside people with many other beliefs and backgrounds.
Other prominent board members are the Palestinian-Australian Nour al-Asmar, the Jewish businessman Ron Finkel and the federal representative for Wentworth Devanand & # 39; Dave & # 39; Sharma, who is of Indian descent, served as an ambassador for Israel.
Bullent Dellal, the president of SBS who has a Turkish Cypriot legacy, is one of the directors of the charity.
The hate campaign started this month when Al Akhbar, a media company in Beirut, supported by the Islamist group Hezbollah, launched a campaign that offered the service of Dr. Rifi disturbed, according to the Australian.
Iran-backed Hezbollah, whose name & # 39; The Party of Allah & # 39; means, is active in Lebanon and aims to eliminate the state of Israel.
Extreme right-wing Islamists beat Dr. Jamal Rifi and Muslim MP Jihad Dib for inviting Muslims to a charity campaign with multiple beliefs. The event in the inner-western suburb of Lilyfield in Sydney raised $ 180,000 to help critically ill Palestinian children be treated in Israeli hospitals
Dr. Rifi, 59, was smeared as an & # 39; agent of Israel & # 39; who fed the alleged harassment by Australian Islamists on social media.
Dr. Rifi said that people in Sydney are afraid of this type of activity and say that it is likely to break with social cohesion.
He was attacked again for revealing the harassment on Friday.
& # 39; His favorite ability to register his community with the regular community has not declined & # 39 ;, wrote an Islamist who has repeatedly attacked Dr. Rifi but cannot be mentioned.
& # 39; We recommend that you do not support Project Rozana because it normalizes Israeli occupation. & # 39;
Dr. Rifi rejected the claim that it was not & # 39; normalizing things & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; We simply treat sick children and provide transportation. & # 39;
Dr. Rifi was again attacked by extreme right-wing Islamists on Friday to incite & # 39; his community & # 39; by uncovering the abuse aimed at supporting a charity with multiple beliefs.
The charity was named Project Rozana after the Palestinian girl Rozana Salawhi, who was rescued by doctors at Hadassah Hospital in Israel after she had fallen from an apartment building near Ramallah in the West Bank, according to the charity's website.
A & # 39; zionist & # 39; is a person who believes in the development and protection of a Jewish state in Israel.
Moderate Muslims have been willing to work peacefully alongside Jews and live in Israel and the Palestinian territories, but extreme right-wing Islamists have never accepted Israel's right to exist and for them it is someone a & # 39; zionist & # 39; call the same as calling them an enemy.
Project Rozana & # 39; s first major fundraiser in Sydney this month brought together more than 320 Muslims, Jews and people from other religions or none, and raised $ 180,000. `
Palestinian ambassador to Australia Dr. Izzat Abdulhadi has made a statement stating that there is no relationship between the Israeli government and Project Rozana, the Daily Telegraph reported.
NSW police said they were investigating the allegations and had referred the case to the Engagement and Intervention Unit and Bias Crime unit in the Counter Terrorism and Special Tactics Command.
& # 39; The police have no tolerance to all bias-related crime and treat all matters seriously, & # 39; said the police in a statement.
The application was sent to a Lebanese military court requesting prosecution for Dr. Rifi and both him and the multi-religious charity project Rozana as & # 39; zionist & # 39; lubricates
