Norman Finkelstein on Prosecuting Israelis and Americans for War Crimes

In January 2011, Norman Finkelstein gave a talk at the American University of Beirut. In this excerpt below, he calls for a special tribunal for Lebanon to hold accountable Israelis who killed civilians in 1978, 1982, 1993, 1996 and 2006. Why does justice begins and ends with Rafic Hariri, he asks. He adds "Let's have a an STI, the Special Tribunal for Iraq to prosecute US leaders for their crimes against Iraqis, Clinton and Bush. "Everything that Israel did in Gaza, the U.S. did in Iraq".
