    Norman Finkelstein - Narcissist Extraordinaire

    Yet if you happened to walk into one of his lectures, you might be surprised to hear him say he is "not going to be an Israel-basher anymore." It's not that he's changed his mind on the conflict, he just says blaming Israel has become too easy
    He is a legend in his own mind ...

    Norman Finkelstein bids farewell to Israel bashing

    Says he bids farewell to Israel bashing and yet bashes Israel in the interview. Here's my favorite quote from the article:

    "I don't claim to know Israel. I don't speak Hebrew, my contacts are pretty limited.
    "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither, let my tongue cleave to my palate if I do not remember you, if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy." (Ps. 137: 5-7)"

    "Any generation in which the Temple is not built, it is as if it had been destroyed in their times" (Yerushalmi, Yoma 1a).

    His ilk don't care about history, logic or facts. They are in it for themselves, to self promote and to feed their own inflated egos. They are a sad lot ....
