Antony Loewenstein:
Raimond Gaita is a leading Jewish, Australian intellectual.

Like so many of them, he expresses profound ignorance, bigotry and intolerance towards the Palestinian narrative and the recent Gaza war.
Ignoring the gibberish second sentence, Raimond Gaita is nowhere identified as Jewish. Sol Salbe also has doubts:
Sorry Antony but as far as I know (and Wiklipedia concurs) Raimond gaita is not Jewish. His nearest connection is a Jewish wife.
Will Loewenstein correct? If he remains true to form, no.

Update: In a possible first Loewenstein corrects:
I am informed that Gaita is not Jewish, so let the record be corrected.
A few minutes fact-checking would have made this unnecessary.

Lowenstein is the sort of bigot that he imagines (and prays for) his enemies to be. He instantly assumes that anyone who backs Israel must be a Jew.

Oh yes. And he's a wanker too.
