Without a doubt this is probably the best lecture I’ve heard on the Israel Palestine conflict.

The facts are not complicated.  Finkelstein dispels the ideological fog surrounding this historic conflict.  Finkelstein lays out the history of the Israel/Palestine conflict with clarity and passion, arguing that any other similar conflict would be perfectly understood, yet this one exists beneath a blanket of ideological fog.  Finkelstein cuts through the fog with indisputable historical facts, optimistic that the struggle is winnable, and that it is simply an issue of justice.

Informing Finkelstein’s analysis is a universal ethics… He…is following the example set by the great Jewish prophets.” —The Nation

“Norman Finkelstein is one of the most radical and hard-hitting critics of the official Zionist version of the Arab-Israeli conflict and of the historians who support this version…” —Avi Shlaim, St. Anthony’s College, University of Oxford

I’ve included a link to download the lecture please only do so if thats legal in your country: such as under fair use for education in the USA.  Even if you do download it I’d still recommend buying a copy.
