For those readers who enjoy lefties getting their knickers knotted over matters of no significance whatsoever, Antony Loewenstein is as entertaining as it gets.

Following speculation Israel might not review Loewenstein’s press credentials, he’s sought and received support from various insignificant entities which have expressed concern about the supposed quashing of free speech. This even though Loewenstein is totally free to publish whatever he likes and will remain free to do so no matter the status of his press credentials.

The “leading” interveners:

The Australian embassy rightly rebuffed Loewenstein’s plea for assistance; the possible threat to his press accreditation a matter to be sorted out by Lowenstein and Israel.

Should Israel revoke Loewenstein’s press credentials, his free speech will in no way be affected. He will continue to a best-selling author of multiple books and a journalist who has written for damn near every news outlet of significance:

Antony Loewenstein is a Middle East based, Australian independent freelance journalist, author, documentarian and blogger. He has written for the The GuardianNew York TimesWashington PostNew StatesmanAl JazeeraHuffington PostSalonThe Daily StarLe Monde Diplomatique EnglishForeign PolicyThe NationalThe IndependentElectronic IntifadaAl Akhbar EnglishDawnHaaretzThe NationNew InternationalistSydney Morning HeraldThe AustralianLos Angeles Review of BooksBBC World ServiceAdbustersAl Masry AlyoumJuan ColeMondoweiss,  TehelkaOpen Democracy, Sydney’s Sun-HeraldNew Zealand HeraldSydney Ideas QuarterlyThe Australian Financial ReviewCrikey, Melbourne’s Age, Brisbane’s Courier MailCanberra TimesOnline Opinion, New MatildaThe Conversation, ABC Unleashed/The Drum, Amnesty International AustraliaGreen Left WeeklyEureka StreetKill Your DarlingsTikkun, Adelaide’s AdvertiserThe BulletinZnetOverlandSydney PENThe Big IssueCounterpunch and many others.

He’s a contributor to the The Guardian.

By the way, Loewenstein is, fittingly, a failed Fairfax cadet.
