  4. kudos to Finkelstein. He has the rare ability to talk to the most outrageous apologists for Israel’s crimes and to cut through their blindingly specious arguments like butter. For a guy who is pretty hotheaded, he does keep his cool. Here he is, barred from Israel for his free speech, and the guy he is ‘debating’ with is – to his FACE! – claiming that free speech is alive and well in Israel!!!

    But how telling it is that the guy defending Israel wants (so badly that he does it twice) to compare Israeli settlers to American settlers; in other words, what Israel has been doing to the Palestinians compares to what the settlers did to the Indians; this is a Cheney-like confession to ethnic cleansing and genocide, coming from someone so blinded by hate and brutality, that he doesn’t even see how damning his comparison is. He tells us that his father came with a rifle in his hand – and doesn’t see anything wrong with that.

    The sad thing is that many Americans seem to have the same worldview. It’s a predatory view of the world, where anyone can be our friends, who is willing to do what we want, ‘specially when they get a cold, hard look at our weaponry.
