|Professor Norman Finkelstein|
American political scientist and author Norman Finkelstein has been an outspoken critic of what he calls the exploitation of the Holocaust and misuse of the term anti-Semitism for political gain.
Professor Finkelstein, who is the son of Holocaust survivors, has paid a high price for his views, recently being denied tenure by DePaul University after a very public battle with Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.
Finkelstein is the author of The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering and his most recent book, which sparked the current controversy, is Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History.
On Thursday’s Riz Khan we ask Professor Finkelstein, what is the price of free speech?
