Dr. Norman Finkelstein
Is Criticism of Israel Anti-Semitic?



May 15, 2004 Public Forum @ the Vancouver Public Library: "Is Criticism of Israel Anti-Semitic?"




Finkelstein @ forum


Organized by Canada Palestine Support Network, Jews for A Just Peace, Trade Union Committee for Justice in the Middle East, and Near East Cultural and Education Foundation ( Vancouver ).


Dr. Norman Finkelstein - received his doctorate from Dept. of Political Science at Princeton University.

He is the author of several books including The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering( Verso, 2000 ), which was attacked by organizations in North America dedicated to defending Israeli state policies. Finkelstein, both of whose parents were Holocaust survivors, says "The Holocaust Industry is, as I conceive in the book, institutions, organisations and individuals who have put to use Jewish suffering for political and financial gain." Finklesteinís book Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict ( Verso, 1995 )was praised for its "intellectual integrity" by Israeli historian Avi Shlaim, now teaching at Oxford. His book (with Dr. Ruth Birn) A Nation on Trial: The Goldhagen Thesis and Historical Truth ( Henry Holt, 1998 ) was praised by Israelís outstanding Holocaust historian Raul Hilberg, as well as renowned historians of Nazism Arno Mayer, Ian Kershaw and Christopher Browning.

He currently teaches political science at DePaul University in Chicago.


Dr. Noam Chomsky speaking at the Vancouve Orpheum, March 21, 2004, "I'm delighted to hear that I'll be followed shortly by Norman Finkelstein and would very strong advise you to come listen to him. Not only [ is he ] an old personal friend but a person who can speak with more authority on insight on these topics than anyone I can think of. So that should be a memorable occasion and I urge that you not miss the opportunity."
