Zionists on the March

Here is an example of Zionists protesting something that should not be the least bit controversial - a speaking engagement by Norman Finklestein at Columbia University

March 7, 2006 -- A professor who has drawn widespread criticism for declaring that some Jews use the memory of the Holocaust an "extortion racket" has ignited an outcry at Columbia University, where he was invited to speak by several student groups.

Norman Finkelstein was slated to speak at the university's largest lecture hall tomorrow night on the topic "Israel and Palestine: Misuse of Anti-Semitism, Abuse of History."

The appearance of Finkelstein, a DePaul University political-science professor, comes as Columbia is still licking its wounds over charges last year that pro-Palestinian professors had intimidated Jewish students.

But we already have seen Normal Finklestein engage in a completely uneventful and rather cordial debate with an ex Foreign Minister of Israel. Surely if Prof. Finkelstein was such an anti-Semite Mr. Ben-Ami would have said something during the debate.
