This is a conversation with Norman Finkelstein hosted by Jadaliyya co-editor Mouin Rabbani about Israeli apartheid. This episode of Connections Podcast features a discussion of the recent Human Rights Watch Report A Threshold Crossed: Israeli Authorities and the Crimes of Apartheid and Persecution, its political context, and potential implications. This interview is the third episode of Connections Podcast. Guest: Norman Finkelstein is a world-renowned forensic scholar. He first came to public attention in the 1980s, while still a doctoral student at Princeton University, for exposing a major study purporting to demonstrate that the Palestinians are an invented people as a work of fraud. He has since published ten books that have been translated into numerous languages. Among his most notable works are Image and Reality of the Palestine Conflict (1995); The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering (2000); and Gaza: An Inquest Into Its Martyrdom (2018).
