Clip from “American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein”

Dr. Norman Finkelstein is one of my favorite heros. He’s one of the most bravest people living in America today. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to speak the truth when everyone is against you and not listening. He has not let anything discourage him from speaking the truth.

Here’s a clip from a new film “American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein”

Dr. Finkelstein was invited to give a speech at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, is posed a question from a Zionist. Unfortunately for her, she attempts to invoke the Holocaust to criticize Dr, Finkelstein, completely oblivious to Dr. Finkelstein’s own family history – both his mother and father were survivors of Nazi concentration camps and he lost more family members in the Holocaust than those shedding crocodile tears. In this clip, he first gets ambushed by her fellow Zionist supporters shouting Dr, Finkelstein down, but he quickly takes control of the situation and leaves her with no comeback.

Dr. Finkelstein is a Jewish American political scientist and author, whose primary fields of research are the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the politics of the Holocaust. A graduate of Binghamton University, 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.
