Norman Finkelstein says that Israeli forces have conducted a â€śmurderous assault on non-violent protestersâ€ť in Gazaâ€™s Great March of Return, because non-violent protest threatens not Israel, but its occupation.
Norman G. Finkelstein received his doctorate in 1988 from the Department of Politics at Princeton University. He currently teaches at Sakarya Universityâ€™s Center for Middle Eastern Studies in Turkey. Finkelstein is the author of ten books that have been translated into 50 foreign editions.
