Clip is from American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein. Copyright Baraka Productions / Typecast Releasing Transcript as follows (which was prepared by PalestineRemembered at gmail.com) During your speech you made a lot of references to Jewish people as well as certain people in the audience, not Jewish people in general, but especially in the audience - to Nazis. That is extremely offensive to certain people who are German and also extremely offensive who actually suffered under Nazi war I don't respect that any more, I really don't. I don't like and I don't respect the crocodile tears (interruptions) the crocodile tears (clapping and cries from audience) listen sir, allow me to finish I don't like to play to a foreign audience the Holocaust part but since now I feel compelled to - my late father was in Auschwitz, my late mother ... please shut-up (applause) my late father was in Auschwitz my late mother was in Mgdonevice concentration camp - every single member of my family on both sides were exterminated, both my parents were in the Warsaw Ghetto They taught me and my two siblings that I will not be silenced by Israel over their crimes against Palestinians. I consider nothing more despicable than to use their suffering and their martyrdom to try to justify the torture the brutalization and the demolition of homes commits against the Palestinians I refuse any more to be intimidated to be browbeaten by the tears, if you had any heart in you, you would be crying for the Palestinians. (Finkelstein aside to the camera "I've never been in a crowd like this, they're nice")
