dunceThis time, Antony Loewenstein has had an unfair go at the NZ Prime Minister John Key in his blog, labeling him as Jewish and then being critical of his views on the Middle East.
Key’s mother is Jewish, but he isn’t, is an agnostic, but goes to Church with his wife. In any case, I thought the problem was with Zionists, not Jews, in the minds of anti-Zionists. AL is playing with anti-Semitic tropes. This is not the first time I have caught AL out for making foul play. It does progressive politics a disservice, particularly since he has such a wide audience. But he pitches at the lowest common denominator sometimes.
Make up your minds. His post, my response.
