The Age: “Western politicians prefer to ignore Israel’s inherent racism” by Antony Loewenstein, 28 October 2010

It is heartening to see Jews of conscience, such as Antony Loewenstein
speaking out against the inherent racism of Israel’s policies and practices.
He holds the mirror to our own politicians’ one-eyed support for Israel and
exposes the blind spot they acquiesce in keeping in place in “Western
politicians prefer to ignore Israel’s inherent racism” (28/10).

This is the eleventh hour for all people of conscience. This is happening on
our watch and it is not as if the concrete evidence can escape our eyes with
the ever burgeoning settlements staring us in the face. Supporting a state
that practices occupation, colonisation and apartheid is collaboration. One
cannot be neutral on the ongoing violation of human rights that has denied
Palestinians the right to be treated equally in their homeland. Remaining
silent on what is happening is consent.
