Norman Finklestein Refuses to Sign Letter Against Anti-Semitism

Gary Fouse

Last Tuesday at UC-Irvine, that great "Independent Scholar with a PHD from Princeton", Norman Finklestein, spoke on behalf of the Muslim Student Union during Israel Apartheid Week. During the Q&A, I asked him if he would add his name to a letter of about 40 Jewish faculty members asking for an end to anti-Semitism on the UCI campus. Below is the non-answer I got. (You will have to download the video).

Of course, Finklestein was referring to the MSU disclaimer about anti-Semitism that was read before every event last week including the tirade by Amir Abdel Malik Ali, which many of those present are calling anti-Semitic. For the life of me, I have no idea what Richard Goldstone had to do with any of this.
