    An excellent interview with the incomparable, Professor Norman Finkelstein. Well worth the entire 50 minutes. Adds a historical context to the dilemma of how to frame the actions of Hamas and his point blank refusal to condemn them. He refers to how historians have dealt with similar episodes that bear comparison, such as the Nat Turner slave rebellion and the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, and how they refused to condemn the rebels for what were brutal acts of revenge deliberately targeting civilians, women and children. Context always matters and Prof. Finkelstein provides it with aplomb.
     As the child of parents who were part of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and someone steeped in the history of the conflict, his perspective is always valuable.
     After wrestling with this dilemma he also touches on the fact that when, with the urging of the self styled "international community", the Gazans chose a peaceful (Ghandi style protest as Prof Fink calls it) form of protest via the March of Return in 2018, the IDF deliberately targeted peaceful protesters, medical personnel, press and disabled people.
     It isn't just Netanyahu who is incapable of any just agreement with the Palestinians, successive Israeli governments have blocked any possibility of justice for Palestinians. Israel do not get to play victim whilst blocking any possibility of Palestinian justice.
    Finklestein, would certainly say that Queen Rania has a point with which he would agree and so do I.

A video to educate Norman Finkelstein:
   What makes you imagine that a 3 minute propaganda video by "Israel in the UK"(the official channel of the Israel Embassy) would "educate" Norman Finklestein? If that video "educates" you, then you demonstrate that it is you who needs educating. Anyone still supporting Israel now is beyond reason.
