American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein
Thursday, January 12 at 8:00 pm on Channel 12.2
Jewish-American Professor Norman Finkelstein vocalizes his criticism of Israeli policy and his views about what he refers to as the “Holocaust industry” in this documentary from filmmakers Nicolas Rossier and David Ridgen. The son of a Holocaust survivor, Finkelstein makes the controversial claim that the state of Israel uses anti-Semitism as a justification for committing war crimes, and that this troubling trend can be traced back to the Jewish state’s invasion of Lebanon in 1982. The film also takes the time to show how Professor Finkelstein’s claims have landed him in the hot spot more than a few times, and resulted in the termination of his position at two prominent universities.
