Antony Loewenstein links to a very iffy You Tube video:
A revealing video from April featuring children cleaning up rubble after a house demolition in the Old City of East Jerusalem when their home was destroyed by Israeli military. If the rubble is not cleaned up the family will be charged $600 a day along with paying for the house demolition itself.
The synopsis is taken directly from the video and is obviously wrong, with an unidentified woman saying a fine of 600 shekels is payable if the rubble isn't cleared. The supposedly demolished house is not shown. Also, marvel at the industrious Palestinian children moving the rubble away and then bringing it back. More anti-Israel crap from Loewenstein.

Update: The errant $ before "600 shekels" has been removed.

Look at Cream's post!
Outrageous invasion of privacy!
Not okay!

Whoever leaked it may be in a great deal of trouble!
Information on NSW property its held by the Titles Office. Anybody can go there and have a look at the owner, and how much they own.
Not even if they're a corporation.
Just anyone at all.
Nothing illegal or unethnical or unseamly about it.
Seriously, he's cream of goose soup.

Anons above, between that absolute clanger of a post and no one even bothering to publish comments for most of the day, you can almost hear the embarrassed faithful pleading to just cut the rope and let the boat go already.

If I lived with Jeremy I would wear a Cream of Goose soup bowl on my head, with the soup coming thickly down over my ears, to block out the sound.

Consider it the "Loewensear" thread. A portmanteau of two pinheads.

We don't. When Leunig gets honorary doctorates, that's when you know they're worth jack shit.
