Norman Finkelstein Lectures at CMU
On Monday March 14, 2005, Norman Finkelstein spoke at CMU. Finkelstein is
the author of Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict (Verso, 1995), The Rise and Fall of Palestine (University of Minnesota, 1996), with Ruth Bettina Birn, A Nation on Trial: The Goldhagen Thesis and Historical Truth (Henry Holt, 1998) and The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering (Verso, 2000).
The lecture had been pushed back a month on the request of members of the Hillel-Jewish University Center, who argued that too many speakers who opposed Israeli policies had been coming to the university in too short a time. In the extra month, Hillel then organized as many people as possible who opposed Finkelstein's lecture to come and fill the room, in attempt to crowd out supporters.
