The Zionist conspirarcy to silence Norman Finkelstein.
A certain Tony Greenstein has been very vigilant lest the int'l gentiles get to know the conspiracy to silence and to hide the truth. Here is a perfect example of when American Zionist Jews conspired to fill every chair in the auditorium where Finkelstein was to speak so that the gullible goyim (gentile) don't get to know the truth. How conspiratorial, how secretive are these people? I think Tony GreenSnake may resort to this scheme to silence someone like Gilad Atzmon. Instead of mobilizing an army of fellow Jews to come marching against the people who sponsor Gilad to hold his event why not just buy up all the tickets like your folks did in America, but you may have to get up at 4am and get at the gate at 6am for an event that would take place at 8pm. But this is still such a small inconvenience that enables you to hide The Outright Theft of Palestine by Europe's Ashkenazi Jewry. The more ignorant the American public, the more the success of International Zionist Jewry.
The conspiracy, the collusion, the underhanded and unscrupulous nature of these Zionist Jews can never be matched by any other people, anywhere on the planet. Their success indeed is a result of the tenacity of their solidarity. In this scheme, the Zionist Jews were conspiring to fill upthe entire auditorium where Norman Finkelstein was to speak so that no gentile gets to get in to the place.

Norman Finkelstein at Carnegie Mellon University March 14: "Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History"
On Monday March 14th at 4:45pm, Norman Finkelstein will be speaking at CMU about "Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History" as part of the university sponsored "University Lecture Series".
Many CMU students are reported deeply troubled by the tone and topic of Norman Finkelstein's lecture. After much debate and guidance, they have decided to ask the greater Pittsburgh Jewish community to support the students by attending the lecture. However, the concept is not to "publicize" the event, thus bringing more attention to the speaker, but rather to quietly fill the lecture hall with those who cannot be influenced by Finkelstein's rhetoric. Through filling the hall with Jewish students and community we will minimize participation of those who can be influenced by his propaganda. Along these lines, we are NOT contacting media in any way. Instead we are looking to spread the word about this lecture in a quiet manner.
Please join the CMU organizers in the Adamson Wing, 136A Baker Hall, CMU at 4:00 PM to sit as a unified Jewish community against hatred and anti-Semitism, and to support the CMU Jewish student community.

Jewish community lines up to blunt
message of anti-Zionist author
(Norman Finkelstein is a Zionist, why he has attained the
'anti-Zionist' lable is beyond me)

Pittsburgh's Jewish community turned out in force last night for Norman G. Finkelstein's lecture at Carnegie Mellon University. People lined up by the dozen more than an hour before the speech began, anxious to claim a seat in McConomy Auditorium.
Normally, this is not Finkelstein's crowd. The scholar and author of books like the international best-seller "The Holocaust Industry" and the forthcoming "Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History," Finkelstein argues that American Jewry has "played the Holocaust card," exploiting the suffering of Jews as a political tool to generate sympathy for Israeli policy and further the aims of Zionism.
Finkelstein also spoke of human rights abuses Israel has inflicted on Arabs.
Many in the crowd spoke of betrayal and outrage that Finkelstein, whose parents both survived the ghettos and concentration camps of Europe, would draw analogies between Nazi and Israeli policies. So why wait in line to hear the man speak for two hours?
It was part of a carefully planned effort by the United Jewish Federation to minimize the impact of Finkelstein's appearance by quietly filling the seats of the lecture hall with Jews already inured to his "ridiculous and vile distortions," said Jeffrey Cohan, spokesman for the UJF.
Given several weeks' notice of Finkelstein's appearance, the UJF, which represents all Jewish organizations in the Pittsburgh area, deployed a "rapid response team" to e-mail more than 400 people, asking them to show up, and early. Hillel Jewish University Center of Pittsburgh conceived of the seat-filling strategy; the United Jewish Federation helped to execute it.
Cohan characterized Finkelstein's support in the Jewish community as "minuscule" and "very extreme fringe."
Ken Boas is one of those supporters. Boas teaches English at the University of Pittsburgh, and came to hear Finkelstein speak about his support of the Palestinian struggle and Israel's "abhorrent and criminal policies" against Palestinians.
"The sense is that if you're Jewish, you need to be supportive of Israel and the Zionist position," Boas said. "It makes it very difficult for Jews to dissent without being branded as anti-Semitic or self-hating."
"Just so you know, Ken is wrong," said David Shtulman, executive director of the American Jewish Committee's Pittsburgh chapter, standing next to Boas. "All one has to do is take a look at Israeli newspapers [to know that Jews can dissent]. There are those that argue Israeli policies are too harsh and help produce suicide bombers -- that's a legitimate point of debate. But to use terms like 'Nazi' policies, 'ethnic cleansing,' that goes beyond the pale. One has to wonder if his point is simply to demonize."
The atmosphere was tense. CMU administrator Indira Nair spoke first, laying out the rules: no questions, no loud remarks, "no noises that your mothers wouldn't approve of." Finkelstein began his remarks with apologies to those who had come "hoping for a circus."
"I'm not going to be providing one," he said.
