Antony Loewenstein is an Australian author and journalist whose best-sellers My Israel Question and The Blogging Revolution have kicked up political debate regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict and the role played by the internet in repressive regimes like Cuba, Egypt, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and China.
Loewenstein has spent time working and traveling across the Middle East, writing for publications such as The Guardian, Haaretz and the BBC World Service. His contributions to various international publications and non-fiction collections on Israel and Palestine have made him an important voice within the region's geopolitical discourse.
In this interview with Tehelka, Loewenstein explains why India was denied Australian support for its nuclear programme, alternatives to the one and two state solutions for Israel and Palestine and how he sees Palestine as analogous, and yet not, to Kashmir. Filmed on January 23, two days before the Egypt Revolution, Loewenstein explains why what started with Tunisia will be replicated across the Arab world and why the political elite of the Arab nations might silently cheer a US military strike on Iran.
