Finkelstein on the Gaza massacre

January 30, 2009 by theradicalmormon

This is an awesome speech by Norm Finkelstein from 1/22/09 on the Israeli massacre of Gaza.  In it he explains that Israel slaughtered Gazans as a means of reclaiming a deterrance effect that they lost first in 2000 when they were ousted from Lebanon by Hezbollah, and lost again in 2006 when they were again confounded by Hezbollah.  The speech is long, but it is very worth watching.

    60 minutes did a great piece on Israel/Palestine. Its one of the few times I’ve seen the MSM show a more sympathetic view to the Palestinians. Part 1 is here

    Josh,
    That was a decent piece by 60 minutes. There should be an AIPAC/ADL/Christians United For Israel outburst anytime now.

    Of course, this is not enough though. With the deafening roar of pro-Israeli media reports, this one teeny report will not stand in American’s memories for long.

    Dont worry AIPAC has already thrown a fit. Here are links to the ADL letter to sixty minutes
