Dr. Norman Finkelstein has cancelled his planned flight to Germany. He wanted to speak in Munich, Milbertshofen and Berlin on February 24, 25 and 26. The scheduled title of his talk was: “One Year after the Israeli Assault on Gaza. The German Government’s Responsibility in the Ongoing Starvation of the Palestinian Population.” This title does not beat around the bush.

We have worked with this devoted field worker from B’Tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, for years. Never before had we seen him cry.
