Norman Finkelstein: The Holocaust Industry

Norman Finkelstein, the American son of Polish Jews who survived WWII concentration camps, is the author of The Holocaust Industry. He says that Jewish leaders, such as Elie Wiesel, have exploited the Holocaust as an ideological weapon to silence critics, thus enabling financial and political gain and furthering the interests of Israel.

As to be expected with a book on such a subject, it has been assailed by what seems to be mostly Jewish critics using the usual methods: attacking his competence, attacking his character ("self-hating Jew") and using ridicule ("a lampoon," "silly").

The book is highly rated by Amazon readers (155 customer reviews, 4.5 stars).
