Indians dumbed down

Australian "wordsmith" and authority on nothing, Antony Loewenstein, has written an article for "leading Indian magazine Tehelka" featuring the following gems of wisdom:
Zionism has thrived due to Arab leader corruption and silence in the face of occupation against Palestinian lands.

~

The resignation of President Hosni Mubarak is the first necessary step in restoring dignity to the Egyptian political process, though it is only the beginning.

~

Today, the Muslim world sees what is possible with weeks of determined protest; America and Israel no longer control the agenda of who rules the Arab street.

~

Tel Aviv is already fearful of what true democracy may mean for its position.

~

Besides, the western world has consistently refused to accept to its own detriment the legitimate positions of many Muslims since 11 September 2001 who wants their religion integrated into a democratic system.

~

Former Egyptian President Mubarak, wholly supported by Washington and Tel Aviv for three decades and much of the US corporate press, has shaped a state that routinely tortured its own citizens as well as suspects in the American-led “war on terror.”

~

Take former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who told CNN that Mubarak had been ‘immensely courageous and a force for good’ in the Middle East over the Israel-Palestine ‘peace process’.

~

Why should only Israeli Jews be allowed freedom in the region? Must Arabs be suppressed for the pleasure of the Zionist state?

Sixty years is more than enough of this paradigm. And Arab people-power has loudly announced that it won’t tolerate decades more living under autocracy.
The keys to Loewenstein's success as an "analyst" are clear: describe Israel as the major evil in the world today, back it up with semi-intelligible arguments, and someone, somewhere is bound to publish it.

Loewenstein strikes me as the kind who'd be outraged at any blurring of the church-state separation here in Australia.

So why does he think it's "legitimate" for Muslims to integrate their religion into a democratic system?

It is indeed an interesting position for atheist Loewenstein to take.

I thought the wanker claims he's Jewish?

anyway, the examples of his prose....are...just....gruesome.

I actually cringed.

The ABC publishes the semi literate?

Anthony can't help it - he's a self-abuser.

As soon as Bolt posted on this, the "I'm Jewish and I support Ant Loewenstein" concern trolls started coming out of the woodwork.

I suspect that some disinterested editor at the Indian newspaper saw his inflated autobiography and figured he's been published by so many other newspapers that he must be worth a run.

Poor guy just keeps getting silenced... Must be all that Jewish control over the media.
