If this letter isn't a joke, and if the writer represents the sort of folk currently supporting Israel, that place is in very big trouble

Subject: Your Slander Against Israel

To: Norman Finkelstein


The International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem has informed me that you are committing slander against
the holy state of Israel.

A review by my staff of the evidence before us clearly indicates that the views and opinions you are expressing in your writings, published by the enemies of Israel,are obscene and racist.

Indeed, the “facts” you adduce are also a fictitious hoax.

A case in point: You wrote that “Human Rights Watch concluded that the pattern of attacks during the Israeli offensive indicates the commission of war crimes.” This speculative comment is superseded by HRW’s overt declaration that “Hezbollah’s lobbing of rockets blindly into Israeli civilian areas is without doubt a war crime.” (HRW Report Aug. 5/06). You deliberately falsified the record by excising this ruling by HRW.

This means that youe writings are completely bogus.

Moreover, you accuse Israel of egregious violations of international law in all its defensive wars, without a shred of evidence. You go on to make the absurd claim that in the 1967 war, Egypt had not intended to attack Israel. Everyone knows that this is impossible since both Nasser and Anwar Sadat revealed to the world that Israel was about to succumb to their Arab imperialist aggression. This was done at the time that Nasser expelled the UN peacekeeping force from Sinai.

Falsification of history is a tactic of criminal historians who today are the running dogs of reactionary Muslim jihadism. You, sir, fit this category. After Auschwitz and the other Nazi concentration camps, it is forbidden for any human being on this planet to defame, harm or otherwise insult the holy Jewish people.

You, sir, have violated this fundamental credo of world civilization and therefore must be placed beyond the pale .

As a consequence, it is my solemn duty to inform you that our ecclesiastical court has issued an edict inscribing you as a SLANDERER OF ZION. This means that ourdisciples are hereby empowered to facilitate your removal from university life and the community of educators.

You may wish to exercise your right to have this decree set aside. In such case, you are invited to submit an affidavit renouncing your calumnies against the holy Jewishstate, circulating a statement of support for the victory of the holy Jewish people against their enemies to all your affiliated organizations and publications, whether online or offline, and paying our court costs of $US 975.
