The Lament of the Age

J-wire contributor Raffe Gold lambasts anti-zionist Anthony Loewenstein over his latest piece of nonsensical blogging in The Lament Over Loewenstein but, as worthy as his criticism might be, the real problem is with the opinion piece which Loewenstein quotes and which appeared in both the Age and the Sydney Morning Herald on 2 January, 2012.

Loewenstein is, after all, a proven ignoramous but one expects a lot more from the Fairfax press than a piece which totally misrepresents the recent events in Israel involving a minority group of religious fanatics and their disgraceful attitude towards women in public.

As Gold points out, most of the groups involved, such as the Netura Karta are vehemently ant-zionist but it's doubtful whether anything in Al Age or SMH would alert its readers to the fact that such despicable people are on the same side as Loewenstein and many of the apologists for Islamism who regularly write opinion pieces for the Fairfax organisation.Link
