Israel Deports Finkelstein

Israel has deported Norman Finkelstein and banned him from Israel for 10 years. Not the exact treatment one would expect for the son of Holocaust survivors and a so-called democratic state.

Finkelstein was in the process of visiting the occupied territories.

In other words if you call a spade a spade - you're kicked out! I have no words for this disgusting attitude ...

On the other side .. I guess that through this outrageous action he will be MORE heard, MORE wanted to speak, MORE respected than prior ... its the "martyr-syndrom" and MIGHT be a blessing in disguise!

Let's wait and see ...

The article mentions that Israel claimed a "security concern" with Finkelstein regarding ties with Hezbollah and al-Qaeda.

I think that all critics of israeli policy here in the US need to unite into one group, and maybe have a liason with the dissenters within israel proper. The problem is now the criticism is so spread out from many different individuals and many different groups that the power of the collective message is being lost. It is easy to divide and conquer. But if all opposed to the US's horribly unbalanced and reprehensible policy with respect to Israel could band together in one group then perhaps something could be done positively.

Just brainstorming a bit.
