Boycott Australian Authors!
Antony Loewenstein has gone from being a self-hating Jew, to a self-hating Australian, calling for UN sanctions against Australia.
Talk is no longer enough. The UN has had more than 20 years to convince Australia to abandon mandatory detention and its associated ills. Frankly, it hasn’t tried hard enough. Absent of a complete overhaul of the UN system, something that is long overdue, let legitimate legal sanctions be threatened and used.
It’s a price every Australian, myself included, should feel.Unlike Antony, not every Australian has rushed off to apply for a German passport, just in case.
The UN is of course morally bankrupt, especially in its hypocritical dealings with Israel. No wonder Loewy sees them as the arbiter of all that is good and just.
Interestingly, to see how the serial resume puffer now refers to his blog postings at the Guardian's "Comment is Free" blog:
