Salbe points out that:
Does not it stuck you odd that Omer would have been attacked by the Israeli security forces upon his return to Gaza? There are no Israeli forces in Gaza and any incursion would have been such a mnajor violation of the ceasefire that even the Australian media would have reported it.
Omer was set upon at the Aleenby Bridge while crossing the Allenby Bridge into the West Bank from Jordan. With the Rafah crossing closed someone with a permit need to travel via the West Bank into Israel and from there in to Gaza. If bloggers would like to be treated as journalists then fact-checking of obviously impossible assertions is not an option but a necessity.
Like the history of the Israel/Palestine conflict, the area's geography is not Loewenstein's strong point. In the first edition of his book, My Israel Question, he placed Israel's Gallilee region in Lebanon. This would have surely been a highpoint in his career as an author as it was for Louise Adler (also apparently Jewish) as a book publisher.
