The last post was mistaken, John Ruberry my one new commentor yesterday does not call for the dismissal of Professor Finkelstein. Instead his blog links to a lot of articles calling Finkelstein an "anti-semite" and a "Holocaust Denier." Now given that Finkelstein is Jewish and the son of two Jewish survivors of Nazi concentration camps these are strange allegations. But, if one believed they were true they would certainly be grounds for calling for the dismissal of a university professor. Thus I wrongly assumed that the point of such links was to argue that Finkelstein was unfit to teach at DePaul and should be fired. Ruberry informs me this is not the case.
