“Shocked by the evil”: A Talk with Musa Abu Hashhash

norman.pngCJPME Analysis, published June, 2008: Musa Abu Hashhash is the man Norman Finkelstein was on his way to see in Hebron when Israel, deciding otherwise, deported Finkelstein and denied him entry for a decade. It was a dramatic action that brought Israel some bad press from unexpected quarters.

The decision to ban Finkelstein hurts us more than it hurts him”.
