'Don't you dare come at us about this subject when everything you said can and should be applied in exactly the same way to Islamic terror. You're a hypocrite,' Jewish activist Avi Yemini said.

But Mr Yemini said Aly would never make the same argument about Muslims and terrorism, or support laws to tackle it like President 's travel ban.

'You're an utter disgrace, you're Australia's biggest hypocrite and I can't wait until your millions of fans realise what a slimy traitor you are.'

Mr Yemini wasn't the only viewer to slam Aly's alleged double standard, with others flocking to Twitter with similar arguments.
