    Finkelstein's discussion brings a much needed perspective to the causes and reasons of the on-going Israel conflict. We hear pro-Israeli viewpoints on a fairly regular basis, which tend to condemn and group the majority of Palestinians as terrorists. Admitedly, there are enough situations to sustain that viewpoint. Palestinian perspectives are less frequently offered in mainstream U.S. publications. If a Palestinian perspective is offered, such as ex-President Carter's book "Palestine, Peace not Finkelstein's discussion brings a much needed perspective to the causes and reasons of the on-going Israel conflict.

Palestinian perspectives are less frequently offered in mainstream U.S. publications. If a Palestinian perspective is offered, such as ex-President Carter's book "Palestine, Peace not Apartheid", it's almost always labeled as "anti-semetic" or dismissed as naive. In this case, I see Finkelstein as trying to present an often missing and unstated perspective to bring balance and understanding of the issues which lead to the continuing conflict in the region. It's definitely worth reading.

    What can you say about this book? Only that you will find faultless research, a sharp wit and eye for detail, clear prose, only apply to read if you feel that The Law applies to everybody alike, apologists may be better off sticking to Benny Morris version of history

    What A Hypocrite Written by Mandi Chestler on August 30th, 2006 Book Rating: 1/5 I gave this a 1-star rating because the review guidelines didn't offer a 0-rating. Finkelstein is one of those completely annoying and hypocritical "intellectuals" who claim to offer an unbiased look at an issue, but instead cherry-picks the "facts" to present an off-the-charts one-sided point-of-view. It seems Norman Finkelstein got his talking points from Syrian President Assad and Iranian President Ahmedinejad, then What A Hypocrite Written by Mandi Chestler on August 30th, 2006 Book Rating: 1/5 I gave this a 1-star rating because the review guidelines didn't offer a 0-rating. Finkelstein is one of those completely annoying and hypocritical "intellectuals" who claim to offer an unbiased look at an issue, but instead cherry-picks the "facts" to present an off-the-charts one-sided point-of-view. It seems Norman Finkelstein got his talking points from Syrian President Assad and Iranian President Ahmedinejad, then used his academic credentials to pretend to offer an objective look at a conflict where both sides have made mistakes. He capitalizes on the currently "hip" trend of the radical far left to see terrorists like Hezbollah and Hamas as blameless victims that just can't help it if they decide to blow up innocent people with suicide bombers, or lauch bombs at Jews from the basement of civilian Palestinian apartment buildings. I've got news for Finkelstein, if he continues to peddle this dribble, a truly terrible situation will take much longer to resolve.
