A debate between the former Israeli Foreign Minister, Shlomo Ben-Ami, and Professor Norman Finkelstein.
Norman Finkelstein argues that some supporters of Israeli government policies have attempted to de-legitimize criticism by disingenuously heaping the charge of anti-Semitism. Former Israeli Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben Ami defends Israel’s record on human rights, and says peace will only come about through a negotiated two-state settlement.
Debate moderated by Amy Goodman
