Today we feature Norman Finkelstein, political scientist, author, professor and activist, speaking on Gaza, where he has done an enormous amount of research and writing on the systematic Israeli massacre of the Gazan population. He also sharply criticizes the media and especially the major human rights organizations, which have been numbed and to some extent neutralized by the Israeli propaganda machine.

Professor Finkelstein reviews the dismal history of these organizations' cowardice and timidity as regards Israel's continuing war crimes against Gaza. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International bow to Isreal, avoiding terms like "war crimes" or "crimes against humanity." When expressing sympathy, it's for "both sides" even when the ratio of aggression is 1500 to 1, which is often.

The crowning heartbreak was when Richard Goldstone mysteriously recanted his factually accurate, well documented, damning, report to the UN. Quoting Richard Falk: "You can't report truthfully on Israel without facing its wrath."

(Ed. note: Finkelstein's focus was Gaza. It should be understood that those same shamefully corrupted human rights organizations have paired with Israel to aggressively promote U.S. "regime change" operations in Syria and elsewhere.)
