The One and Only Norm Finkelstein on Israel

Posted on Monday, 4th June 2012 @ 11:11 PM by Text Size A | A | A

Norman Finkelstein, author of the new book, “Knowing Too much: Why the American Jewish Romance with Israel Is Coming to an End,” argues that President Obama’s hawkish support for Israel is belied by his liberal background as a law professor and community organizer. Responding to Obama’s speech this year before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Finkelstein says, “President Obama clearly doesn’t believe a word he’s saying [on Israel-Palestine]. And that’s probably the most troubling or the most disconcerting thing about listening to him. … He says we have Israel’s back. Well, what he actually means is, rich American Jews have me, meaning Obama, in their pocket, and I have my hands in their pocket.” Known as one of Israel’s most prominent critics, Finkelstein says the goal of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions campaign and the broader movement for Middle East peace should be to mobilize public opinion on what most already support: a two-state solution rooted in international law. “Politics is not about personal opinions,” Finkelsten says. “It’s about trying to reach a public and getting them to act on their own sense of right and wrong.”
