Anti-Israel Activist Antony Loewenstein: ‘Six Million Should Die’
One more Harry’s Place link, and then I’ll cut it out.
There have been some questions over the past couple of weeks here about what’s wrong with Mondoweiss. This is one of the problems with Mondoweiss: people like Antony Loewenstein write for it.
…during the Q&A Jonathan Hoffman asked Loewenstein how many people Loewenstein thinks should die for this one-state solution, that Loewenstein wants so much, to come into existence. The idea being that Israelis are not going to vote themselves out of existence, so presumably such a state could come about only by force involving more bloodshed.
As Loewenstein wasn’t quite answering the question he was pressed further by Hoffman as to how many people Loewenstein thinks should die. First, Frank Barat, the Chairman, answered ‘200,000″ (here is more on Barat). Then Loewenstein answered ‘Six million. That’s my answer. Write that down.’
Anyone who wonders why the statement that ‘anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism’, or that ‘people rush to label anti-Semitic any criticism of Israel’s policies’ provokes pushback and anger may want to bear in mind that these are some of the people we are talking about. I’m having some trouble buying this man as a peace and justice type.
