Reviews In

Antony Loewenstein is excited about the "First positive review" of his new book. It's by an old mate of his, former Webdiary contributor Chris Saliba, who writes:
Loewenstein is a committed journalist whose work shows sensitivity and balance. He mixes research with on-the-ground reporting, seeking out the truth as experienced first-hand.
By "committed", Saliba presumably means "unemployable". As for Loewy's truthful "on-the-ground" reporting, you'd have to wonder whether Saliba was aware of Loewenstein's "research" not actually undertaken prior to his massively error-riddled Israel book.

As Saliba himself wrote in his review of the book at the time:
I know diddly squat about the Israel / Palestine conflict.
He should submit a manuscript to Melbourne University Press. They'd publish it for sure.
