I have a blog at Independent Australian Jewish Voices, and have written about various issues for newmatilda. My criticisms of the Israeli government have earned me harsh denunciations from the Israeli government lobbyists. The B’Nai Brith Anti-Defamation Commission and Michael Danby have both accused me of anti-Semitism. Danby has also said that I’m Antony Loewenstein’s “Sancho Panza” and the “poor man’s Loewenstein”. An AIJAC writer, upon discovering I disapprove of the West Bank settlements, concluded that I wished to see the West Bank “Judenrein”. Philip Mendes, upon hearing that I had given a speech on the topic of the “Influence of Zionism on Australian Politics”, and knowing nothing else, queried “whether or not it is connected to the Protocols of The Elders of Zion.”
Danby is correct about one thing. I am “completely outside the mainstream of the centre-left party in this country”. In this blog, I will continue to seek to focus on demonising and delegitimising governments which act in my name, with which our country is aligned, and so on. Other topics may well come up too.
