Ward Churchill certainly has nothing on DePaul's Norman Finkelstein. Where Churchill is a silly buffoon -- the campus version of the village idiot -- Finkelstein travels the world spreading his filth. Here he is on Lebanese TV peddling his "Holocaust Industry." I don't know whether or not he was aware of the introduction they ran before him -- which should have been enough for any sensible person to either denounce or walk out -- but this man who's heralded the heroism of Hizballah certainly knows what the effect of his words will be, and the purposes to which they will be put on Lebanese TV. It is jaw-dropping to watch. To summarize what one Marxist reviewer of his work noted, Finklestein must be the only Marxist capable of shedding tears for Swiss bankers. As between the bankers and the Jews, Finkelstein sides with the bankers. Now why would that be do you think?

MEMRITV: Lebanese TV Channel Questions Number of Holocaust Victims and Hosts Norman Finkelstein, Author of "The Holocaust Industry"

Report: "The 'Holocaust' is the Jewish term for burning the sacrificial offering to ashes. Never has there been an issue subject to as many contradictions, lies, and exaggerations regarding the number of victims as the issue of the Jewish Holocaust. The number of people killed in the Holocaust was estimated, in the film Night and Fog by the French director Alain Resnais, to be between eight and nine million, on the basis of documents invented by the Jews. The number dropped to four million Jews in the Soviet report to the Nuremburg trials. The figure dropped further, to 300,000 victims, according to British historian David Irving, and reached only 50,000, according to Raul Hilberg the Jew.

"Given the statistical contradictions in the number of Holocaust victims, the French intellectual Roger Garaudy asks how the truth can be determined. The Holocaust Industry, by Dr. Norman Finkelstein, recounts how the Jews of the world have turned Jewish suffering at the hands of the Nazis into a political and ideological industry in order to garner support for Israel, and into a source of economic extortion, which has yielded inconceivable sums for the Jews and their organizations, using as a pretext the so-called victims of the Nazi annihilation operations."...

...Finkelstein: "Well, one of the points I tried to make in the book is that there has been a gross inflation of the number of survivors of the Nazi Holocaust. In fact, as all the historians have shown, Hitler's extermination of the Jews was very efficient. It was like a factory, an assembly line. Jews were processed to be murdered. When you have such an efficient system there can't be very many survivors. In fact, the best estimates show that by May 1945, that is, at the end of World War II, about 100,000 Jews had survived the death camps, the ghettos, and the labor camps. If 100,000 Jews survived the camps and ghettos in 1945, then 60 years later - that is, roughly around now - there can't be more than a few thousand survivors still alive."...

...Finkelstein: "But the Holocaust industry wanted to blackmail Europe in order to get compensation moneys. And in order to blackmail Europe they said there were hundreds of thousands of needy Holocaust victims who were still alive, and they started to inflate the number of survivors in order to blackmail Europe."...

I am still amazed that even the Abse piece on Finkelrot that they still muse that some of his left wing 'friends' feel he may be left winger gone a little awry, somehow deferring on him otherwise altruistic pure motives when it's obvious what this miserable piece of crust is.... a purely hateful negative misery spreading his own misery.... and he should thank g-d every day Israel does exist because it provides him the perfect vehicle from which to spew all of his venom and hatred.... if not for Israel noone would care what he said.... but he now has the Arab media and satellites which he revels in and in the case of Hezbollah and even proudly proclaims it.

PS Since reading Totten's blog I wonder if this wasn't on Al Manar what channel it was on and if Lebanon Profile could explain if it is in fact a mainstream Lebanese channel?

"New TV" whatever that is.

[illustrates thickness with fingers] The 11th Edition will be that [narrows fingers] thick. Winston Smith: So, The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect? Syme: The secret is to move from translation, to direct thought, to automatic response. No need for self-discipline. Language coming from here [the larynx], not from here [the brain]" -1984 (film)
