A Response to Norman Finkelstein
By Virginia Tilley, February 19, 2012

 against Israel, which was recently posted on YouTube to considerable fanfare by Zionist blogs. Some other good writers
have taken him on, like Sean O'Neill, so I could leave it there. But having watched the whole video-taped interview as well as the
5-minute version that someone cobbled together of its “highlights”, I’m sufficiently irritated to respond.
