Notorious Holocaust minimiser, Norman Finkelstein, who resigned last year as a political science professor at DePaul University in Chicago, has met Hizbullah's commander in south Lebanon, Nabil Kaouk, in his office in the coastal city of Tyre - U.S. academic Finkelstein meets top Hezbollah official in Lebanon. He joins another Israel bashing Jewish born person Noam Chomsky in cosying up to the Islamist terror organisation which specifically targetted Jews when it attacked Israeli civilian areas during the Second Lebanon War.

Finkelstein told reporters:

"After the horror and after the shame and after the anger there still remain a hope, and I know that I can get in a lot of trouble for what I am about to say, but I think that the Hezbollah represents the hope. They are fighting to defend their homeland."

Finkelstein is either oblivious to or supports the views of Hizbullah leader, Hassan Nasrallah who stated in a 2002 interview with Lebanon’s Daily Star,

"If they [the Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them world wide."

That means Chomsky, Finkelstein and their pale imitations like Aussie wannabe Antony Loewenstein who was at his acolytic best with this - Going with Hezbollah (they're like his, um ... footy team) and his mainly ignorant worst in the rest of his execrable blog.

Finkelstein and co would do well to bone up on their history and in particular, of those Jews who like them acted as apologists for fascists in an earlier war only to discover that making nice to mass murderers doesn't help you very much. Of course, Chomsky discovered this three decades ago when he decided to be chummy with the Pol Pot regime and has been grubbily devoting a great deal of time and energy to consigning that part of his past into the blank pages.

How is Finkelstein a "holocaust minimiser?" He considers the most accurate figures to be those arrived at by Raul Hillberg in The Destruction of the European Jews viz. 4.9 to 5.4 million. That's a strange way to minimize the genocide.

Perhaps minimiser means more than just talking about numbers?
