Antony Loewenstein forced to moderate comments section. The Jews win again.

Posted by happyrump
Very dangerous territory, Antony. The Arab and Muslim worlds contain human rights abuses of all stripes and flavours. Following your logic through, everytime an Arab/Muslim mentions Palestinian suffering he can be zinged with 'Ha! What about Syria, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Senegal!" (and that's just the S's).

The Australian Jewish News was writing about Australia Day so it's totally understandable why its reference point would be Aborigines and not Palestinians.

This isn't the first time you've belittled good-deed Jews using this argument. You sneared at a Jewish hip-hop group because they themed their music with a non-Israel social justice issue.

Hey, why don't we all attack your writing for the issues you don't cover. Hey, Antony's writing about Gaza, what does this say about his silence on the Kurds?

Antony, when you use Jews standing up for Aborigines as a rationale for attacking Jews, you might want to take a walk in the fresh air and ponder on what you've become.
