GUEST,albert BS: Palestinian 'facts' (677* d) RE: BS: Palestinian 'facts' 25 May 08


I would like to add some comments about American academic Norman Finkelstein who has just been deprted from Israel for criticising Israeli policy towards the Palestinians and other neighbbouring countries.

Finkelstein's mother who came from an ultra orthodox background was a survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto and also survived the Majdanek Death camp and two other slave camps.

Her first husband who was also in the Ghetto died in the war.Her second husband,father to Norman, survived Auschwitz. All his relatives were killed in the Holocaust.

Finkelstein is hated by the Zionists for many reasons notably his defence of the Palestinian people and their right to resist Israeli attacks and oppression.

He was also the author of a study which demolished claims that Palestine was an empty or near empty land when the Zionists took over....although this mention of his work does no justice to the scholarly book that he published.
