Finkelstein ´ 6 review In this long awaited seuel to his international bestseller The Holocaust Industry Norman G Finkelstein moves from an iconoclastic interrogation of the new anti Semitism to a meticulously researched exposé of the corruption of scholarship on the Israel Palestine conflictBringing to bear the latest findings on the conflict and recasting the scholarly debate Finkelstein points to a consensus among historians and human rights organizations on the factual record Why then does so much controversy swirl around the conflict Finkelstein’s answer copiously documented is This is a careful comprehensive concise work that provides understanding of why Israel is so reviled in the world and which indicts through its focus on one highly visible well connected media savvy apologist Alan Dershowitz an entire class of mainstream elite This elite regularly justify war crimes and horrific human rights abuses on TV and other media The sections on collective punishment destroying homes of the accused their family members and sometimes neighbors even with them in it in some cases torture assassinations use of human shields and hostage taking are particularly anger inducing Finkelstein saves the best for last indicting the morally bankrupt Israel supreme court who have legalized explicitly or implicitly all these practices while juxtaposing Dershowitz s fulsome praise of of their legal uprightness and integrity He closes by showing what a brazen phony and plagiarist Dershowitz is by detailing how much he lifted material for one of his popular books The Case for Israel from the widely discredited work of another author This is excellent scholarship mixed with justifiable ridicule of the distinguished Harvard professor and his class of hypocrites The well placed rapier asides aimed at Dershowitz were a favorite feature of the book

Finkelstein ´ 6 review Lstein argues is Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz’s bestseller The Case for IsraelThe core analysis of Beyond Chutzpah sets Dershowitz’s assertions on Israel’s human rights record against the findings of the mainstream human rights community Sifting through thousands of pages of reports from organizations such as Amnesty International B’Tselem and Human Rights Watch Finkelstein argues that Dershowitz has misrepresented the factsThoroughly researched and tightly argued Beyond Chutzpah lifts the veil of controversy shrouding the Israel Palestine confli This is a scholarly very tightly reasoned book It will not sway ideologues or zealots but will clarify issues for anyone who is open to rational argument on the inflammatory subject of Middle East politics and reality Firstly the book points out the moral and intellectual corruption of Dershowitz and his crowd Alan Dershowitz holding a named chair at the Law School is for some reason immune During the 1967 war I happened to make the comment that Palestinians are people with rights too and was roundly criticized as being an anti Semite Finkelstein nails this pathology extremely well providing evidence logical reasoning and shows how anti Semitism hysteria builds up during any conflict and how Israel has managed to use this and the Holocaust as a bully weapon to stifle criticism The entire world is anti Semitic as shown by the UN votes sometimes being 140 something to 2 Israel and USA against Israel s actions Although logic would dictate that the entire world is NOT anti Semitic the pro Israel stance prefers the absurd explanation of these UN votes The author not only nails Dershowitz for his shoddy absurd scholarship but uses his arguments to demonstrate how much of what the Israel lobby claims is sheer lies Especially important right now is the involvement of Israel in getting us into the Ira conflict For the first time in history we have attacked a country that has done nothing to us We now have blood on our hands Just whose interests are the neocons serving What about Senator Lieberman a man whose head is screwed on correctly for most things Why is he serving the interests of Zionism rahter than those of America There is a very simple reason why the Muslims hate us and that is our absurd absolute support for radical Zionism and its crimes against humanity yes Muslims are people too We are the only country in the world so positioned The powerful Jewish lobby has gotten us into something we can never get out of it is a stain on our souls And Dershowtz s crude apologia just makes the case for Israel and our support of it weaker Any reader of this book cannot but help drawing parallels between Israel s activities and those of Nazi Germany Just as there was collective guilt in Germany there is collective guilt in Israel and since as Finkelstein shows the vast majority of Israelis support the anti Palestinian atrocities they are all eually guilty This reasoned book alone is unlikely to stop the juggernaut but Israel will forever be cursed if it does not atone and that will ultimately be its downfall A nation built totally on deception and terror indeed one which NEEDS terror in order to get 4 billion dollars a year from the USA and exploits its self proclaimed victimhood like a third world beggar exposing his sores whilst seeking alms will ultimately fail It may take a hundred years but evil generally dies But it need not be so and Israel can join the world of civilized nations but it and all of us need to heed Finkelstein In this respect maybe Dershowitz by providing such flagrant absurdities has a use providing a platform so ridiculous that it can be easily perceived If Israel needs a Dershowitz then heaven help it Finkelstein has done an extraordinary job It is in the long run a service to Israel and perhaps to America as well

Finkelstein ´ 6 review That apologists for Israel contrive controversy Whenever Israel comes under international pressure another media campaign alleging a global outbreak of anti Semitism is mountedFinkelstein also scrutinizes the proliferation of distortion masuerading as history Recalling Joan Peters’ book From Time Immemorial published to great fanfare in 1984 but subseuently exposed as an academic hoax he asks deeply troubling uestions here about the periodic reappearance of spurious scholarship and the uncritical acclaim it receives The most recent addition to this genre Finke Norman Finkelstein is a hero of truth This book offers a rare look at the dishonest history and publicity manufactured by the Israel lobby In every generation since Biblical times the Jews seem to produce prophetic figures who are doomed to speak truth to power Finkelstein is such a one
