An Unhelpful Discourse on Israel

Jeff Halper, the Israeli anti-demolitions activist, gives his account of the campaign of censorship by the ‘Lobby’ in Australia.  To its credit, the Australian Jewish News ran it as a letter as well.

It appeared on Anthony Lowenstein’s blog (and we don’t endorse a lot of what Anthony says), but at least he has given Jeff the space to make his case).

Halper has a tough and uncompromising style, but it’s clear from the article that he is patriotic–in the sense of caring for the destiny of the people he has chosen to live with–and not necessarily the political choices made by its elite.
