Subject: *LionPAC Announcements* Norman Finkelstein Comes to Columbia
Norman Finkelstein is Coming to Columbia March 8, 2006*
Norman Finkelstein has fomented controversy since his graduate student
days at Princeton University where he earned his PhD in 1988. Born in
1953, this son of two Holocaust survivors has devoted his career to
venomously attacking Zionism, Israel, Jews and what he calls the Holocaust
industry. He has understandably been called a “Jewish anti-Semite” and
historian Peter Novick called him a “zealot” on a “hate campaign.”
What follows is a brief overview of Norman Finkelstein’s views.
In his own words:
