Norman Finkelstein to testify at 'trial' of French Jewish philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy

Context: A Bertrand Russell 'tribunal' to try philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy for warmongering, unbridled imperialism and Zionism etc., organised by the association the Natives of the Republic (les Indigènes de la République). 

It now turns out that Norman Finkelstein will testify live by video conference from New York at the "trial" to be held this evening in Paris ...  He will be a shining star among a bunch of nonentities.

The preposterous "charges" against Bernard-Henri Lévy are :

- Advocacy of unbridled imperialism and Zionism
- Intellectual dishonesty, as a characteristic of the errors of philosophy, the accumulation of capital and power
- False accusation of an imaginary crime against Iran
- Warmongering and advocating humanitarian imperialism
- Aiding in the creation and promotion of SOS Racisme with a view to silencing autonomous movements of immigration
- Dissemination of false news likely to sow discord between Christian and Muslim religious communities.

okay, when "intellectuals" arm wrestle logic for the purpose of creating a basis to justify their future obscene actions against individuals and after that against masses of people, you know that the time for talking has gone.
I don't know what to do next but talking is out of the question. perhaps it's time to use their methods against them

Finkelstein's testimony? If he testifies that the sky is blue I'll have to go to my ophthalmologist immediately...
