Getting to the heart of what's happening

In an interview on RT, Norman Finkelstein once again shows his informed opinion of the situation in Israel/Palestine, founded on his experience. The man absorbs details and retains them to a remarkable degree. Here he draws on his time spent in I/P during the first intifada in the 1980's to examine what is going on now. Nothing happens in a vacuum. Every action humans take grows from what has gone before. This interview demonstrates how shallow is what most of us consider news analysis from the usual media sources. To her credit, the interviewer lets Finkelstein talk at length.
