AMAZING: NORMAN FINKELSTEIN SLAMS THE BDS MOVEMENT REFERRING TO IT AS A CULT ! WELL DONE NORMAN- JUST IN TIME FOR IAW !

by Rhonda Spivak, Feb 16, 2012

 Norman Finkelstein in an interview that was widely distributed on the net this week slams the  BDS movement for not being honest in stating its real goal which is the destruction of Israel.

In essence, Finkelstein says that  the  BDS movement is picking cherries--it wants to enfoce international law  when it says Israel must remove the Jewish settlements  and the territories in the West  Bank, but not that part of  international law which recognizes Israel's write to exist. In other words, Norman Finkelstein comes off as more right-wing than the BDS movment--and says that  they always hide the fact that they really want to replace Israel, because they know that they will not have wide appeal if they are transparent about their real  goals

It appears  the video as as taken off the net with claims of copyright violations. To learn more click here: http://mondoweiss.net/2012/02/norman-finkelstein-slams-the-bds-movement-calling-it-a-cult.html.

But  an excerpt of the 30 minute Finkelstein  video can be found  here.

You can read a BDS supporter criticizing Finkelstein here http://972mag.com/in-flinching-move-finkelstein-slams-boycott-movement/35497/ .

In my view, this video is definately damaging to the BDS movement.
