Russia Today interviews libertarian socialist Palestine-Israel scholar Prof. Norman Finkelstein, author of The Holocaust Industry, on Obama and Israel being a ‘Satanic client state’ of the US.

Prof. Finkelstein’s reaction to Palestine-Israel and his work has had him branded a self-loathing anti-Semite by warmongering Zionists (a.k.a. “the mainstream in the West”).

The fact is that he’s the best teacher I’ve ever had — teaching me to think and feel to think better — and has educated millions with his books, lectures, classes, and accessibility (11:49):

See Prof. Finkelstein’s lecture on the historical pre-texts of Israels “insane offensive” on Gaza here.

    Great video, great man. I have to say though, I think people’s illusions about Obama came mostly from the fact that his campaign used so much rhetoric with the whole “hope” and “change” stuff that people became attracted and voted.

    Anyway, can’t wait to see Dr. Finkelstein again in the near future. Glad to know he was a good teacher.
