Norman Finkelstein talking about Hezbollah

This video is pretty interesting and deserves watching, cheers.



Norman Gary Finkelstein [Wikipedia] (born December 8, 1953) is an American political scientist and author, whose primary fields of research are the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the politics of the Holocaust. A graduate of SUNY Binghamton, he received his Ph.D in Political Science from Princeton University. He has held faculty positions at Brooklyn College, Rutgers University, Hunter College, New York University, and most recently, DePaul University, where he was an assistant professor from 2001 to 2007.

On May 23, 2008 Finkelstein was denied entry to Israel because, according to unnamed Israeli security officials, of suspicions that "he had contact with elements 'hostile' to Israel". Finkelstein was questioned after his arrival at Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv and placed on a flight back to Amsterdam, his point of origin. Officials said that the decision to deport Finkelstein was connected to his anti-Zionist opinions and criticism of Israel. He was banned from entering Israel for 10 years

  • yea, freedom of speech my A**, they are the best in the world when it comes to fooling others, they are really in control of the world's media ! I just dunno how they do it :S, they do what ever they want, and the world just applause to them.

    In Israel it self, any Arab would be put in prison if he tries to show anything against Israel!, and no body cares.
