Gonzo photoshopped

Soon to impart knowledge to the Sydney Harvard Club Antony Loewenstein today demonstrates ignorance in praising a "wonderful photo" provided by Australians for Palestine activists Samah Sabawi and Sonja Karkar.

The "wonderful photo" isn't a photo at all; it's the very slightly reworked cover of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas retitled Fear and Loathing in Marrickville.

The choice of hard-drinking, drug-loving Thompson as the poster boy for both the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign and for Greens candidate Fiona Byrne is, well, odd.

In the post he quotes, there is of course mention of 'ethnic cleansing' on a 'daily basis' in Palestine and that the Libs and Labor don't seem to care. LOL perhaps this is because IT ISN'T HAPPENING.

Too right.

I don't understand how "Ethnic cleansing" reconciles with exponential population growth.

Israel has also been accused of "genocide", again despite the massive Palestinian birthrate.

It seems no lie about the Jews is big enough for some people to even raise basic questions about it.
