Who is Antony Loewenstein?

Antony Loewenstein is an atheist Jewish-Australian political activist, freelance journalist, author and blogger who is based in Sydney.

Loewenstein has written for The Guardian, Haaretz, The Washington Post, Sydney Morning Herald, The Australian, Sydney's Sun-Herald, The Bulletin, ZNet, The Big Issue, Crikey, CounterPunch and the online magazine among others. He appears regularly on radio, in public and at universities discussing current affairs and politics.

Loewenstein contributed a chapter to Not Happy, John, a book on the controversy over the awarding of the Sydney Peace Prize to Hanan Ashrawi that was a bestseller in Australia. His book on the Israel-Palestine conflict, My Israel Question, was described by Ilan Pappé as "one of the best treatises which presents in the most lucid way possible why anti-Zionism can not be equated with anti-Semitism". The Weekend Australian wrote that it "deserves a strong readership ... because it makes us uncomfortable". It was short-listed for a 2007 New South Wales Premier's Literary Award. The book was criticized in a review in Australian Jewish News. His next book, The Blogging Revolution, is about the impact of the internet in countries with repressive regimes. It was updated in 2011 after the Arab Spring. Both My Israel Question and The Blogging Revolution are available in translation.
