Professor Norman Finkelstein’s lecture at the University of Southern California, 11 March 2010, on the Gaza Massacre as discussed in his most recent book, This Time We Went Too Far: Truth and Consequences of the Gaza Massacre:

  • The preceding internal politics of Israel, Gaza and the international community’s reaction;
  • Israel breaking its ceasefire with Hamas while the world was distracted by the ‘coronation‘ of Barack Obama;
  • Why ‘22 days of death and destruction‘, as Amnesty International called the massacre, wasn’t a ‘war’;
  • The ‘crimes’ of Hamas rocket attacks v. those of Israel ‘terrorizing‘, according to the Goldstone Report, Gazans;
  • Israel soldiers’ description of the massacre as ‘insane hunting season, like a video game, like a child killing ants with a magnifying glass’;
  • Israel’s unlawful repeated targeting of civilians and the use of weaponized white phosphorus;
  • The Western perpetuation of ‘Israel’s propaganda’ which is contrary to the reports of a diverse array of non-governmental organizations finding Israel’s ‘aim to punish, numiliate and terrorize the civilian population’ as ‘systematic and deliberate policy’, consistent with then-Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni bragging her soldiers invasion Gaza ‘demonstrated real hooliganism‘;
