'Frank Lowy establishes Israeli institute'But Lowy's penchant for meddling in world affairs doesn't stop there. Lowy was vice president of a publication called the Australia/Israel Review (AIR), whose parent body is AIJAC (Australia Israel Jewish Affairs Council), the Australian counterpart of it's US equivalent, AIPAC. The AIR is a right-wing Zionist publication whose editor, Michael Kapel, was forced to quit in '98 after the magazine published stolen membership lists of the One Nation party, an Australian nationalist political group. When Palestinian political activist and politician Hanan Ashrawi was awarded the 2003 Sydney Peace Prize, Frank Lowy was one of the most vociferous among the chorus of Zionist protestors and Jewish lobbyists that decried the result and tried to dissuade NSW premier Bob Carr and members of the Sydney Peace Foundation from giving the award to Ashrawi. Lowy, among others, claimed Ashrawi supported suicide bombings and opposed the two-state solution set out in the 1993 Oslo Accords. Sydney-based Jewish-Australian journalist Antony Loewenstein shows how fraudulent these claims are in the opening chapter of his book "My Israel Question", arguing that the real reason behind Lowy and co's objection is her support for the Palestinian cause and anti-Zionist disposition. So, like Silverstein, Lowy is without question a filthy rich corporate Israel cheerleader.
"I am concerned the Foreign Office's diplomatic initiatives in the Middle East should apparently be so closely tied to the aims of one of the world's richest men."Baker said Levy appeared to be "simultaneously a quasi-minister, Labour fundraiser and consultant to a company seeking to influence government policy.Hmmm. Looks like Lowy thought he could swing things Israel's way with his shekels.And look what he's got himself into here!
Lowy implicated in Israel bank scandalPM - Wednesday, 25 October , 2006One of Australia's richest businessmen has been embroiled in a high-level corruption scandal involving the Prime Minister of Israel.Israeli press reports claim that the billionaire owner of the Westfield Group, Frank Lowy, was involved in the scandal with the Prime Minister Ehud Olmert last year.They allege that Mr Olmert had a conflict of interest because he advanced Mr Lowy's interests in the privatisation of a major Israeli bank, Bank Leumi.The Justice Ministry is investigating suspicions that Mr Olmert interfered with the tender to benefit Mr Lowy and another bidder, Daniel Abraham.There are also allegations of a conflict of interest by the Prime Minister through a law firm that dealt with Mr Lowy's affairs in Israel.The head of that firm is Ehud Olmert's father-in-law Professor Yossi Gross.A spokesman for Frank Lowy is rejecting the claims tonight.Emma Alberici reportsEMMA ALBERICI: Overnight Israel Attorney General confirmed he was investigating claims that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert accepted bribes from two international businessmen.
Westfield shopping mall developer Frank Lowy topped the list of Jewish donations with $624,200 - $311,900 to the Australian Labor Party (ALP) and $312,300 to the Liberals.The right wing Liberal party got $400 more than their Labor counterparts; maybe Frank penalised the latter for being such stick-in-the-muds over Iraq.We know the attacks of September 11 were carried out to further the political agenda of the Zionist elite. Is it just a coincidence that two of them took out the lease of the World Trade Center complex just weeks beforehand?
