Judah Zollandz - essays on Palestine: 'Rejectionism'
This essay (and the previous one) seems to be mainly inspired by Chomsky as has been mentioned but that is all to the good in my opinion. I am only guessing but it seems that the majority of the Australian Jewish community are in the grip of the "propaganda" view of the conflict and accordingly "back Israel no matter what, never criticise Israel even when they know it is wrong". Another remark, I would hardly call the SMH an "impartial liberal" paper. It seems more like a key cog in the corporate media, although it does offer a certain amount of dissent from the dominant view. Nothing as excellent and necessary as the current essay has ever been sighted by me in the SMH.
