Dr. Norman Finkelstein - A Very Brave (and Intelligent) Jewish Scholar

Dr. Norman Gary Finkelstein is an American political scientist and author, whose primary fields of research are the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the politics of the Holocaust. He has many supporters, and because he is Jewish yet condemns Israel's oppression of Palestinians, has a lot of critics adamant about destroying his credibility.

He has written several books, namely one entitled "The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering" published in 2000. As you can imagine, just from the title itself, Zionists have cast him as a sell-out Jew, but in fact, he's a true God-fearing God-loving God-worshiping Jew because in Judaism, there is a specific Divine Law that prohibits Jews from establishing their own sovereign land, which was a punishment from God. In any event, in that book, Dr. Finkelstein argues:

"that Elie Wiesel and others exploit the memory of the Holocaust as an "ideological weapon." This is so the state of Israel, "one of the world's most formidable military powers, with a horrendous human rights record, [can] cast itself as a victim state" in order to garner "immunity to criticism.""

I invite you to set aside about 2 hours and just give this man a listen. I have to admit that if you have a very short attention span, you might tune out, but please try to remain focused. Also, consider what he is saying, does the facts he point out and present in this lecture have any validity or is he really a sell-out Jew as they try to make him out to be? Make sure to watch all the way till the end, cuz the 2nd half of the vid is audience members asking him question, and I just respect the way he addresses each question and answers them righteously. That's how you do people, that's called intellectual communication, and that's how, in my opinion, we can tackle some of the biggest problems that have plagued our world for far too long.

As always whenever you're reading or watching any material I post: Objectively analyze and dissect what you see and read. I don't want to brainwash people, I want to empower people to dig for the truth, research the facts and intellectually come up with their own conclusions.

TURN OUR MINDS ON, FLEX OUR BRAIN'S MUSCLES (i.e. Brain cells) AND MAXIMIZE OUR INTELLECTUAL POTENTIALS BABY!!!
