Sometimes the Jewish People are so forgiving. While other people might take the opportunity of “pile on” someone like Stormin Norman Finkelstein, we offer him help. This mean-spirited man who has used the bully pulpit of the College Classroom to take the Shoah and drag it through the mud was denied tenure for the third time this past weekend. For a college Professor, getting kicked out of three different Universities does not look too good on your resume.
Finkelstein is going around telling people he was denied tenure for being anti-Israel, nothing can be further from the truth. In his letter to Finkelstein, DePaul’s president, the Rev. Dennis Holtschneider, cited a summary statement by the university’s board on promotion of tenure that “expressed several concerns touching on his scholarship, specifically what they consider the intellectual character of his work and his persona as a public intellectual.” In English, they are saying that he was a little “loosey-goosey” with the facts.
Just to show how forgiving the Jewish people are, on Professor Steven Plaut Arutz Sheva blog, he has prepared a list of possible jobs for the self hating Jew to help him get through these coming “tough” times.

Some Career Advice for Norman Finkelstein by Steven Plaut
if (sLinkData != “”) document.write(“Edit
“); Norman Finkelstein is arguably the most openly anti-Semitic “Jew” on the planet, and the competition for that title is tough. He has made a career out of defaming Holocaust Survivors, painting them as thieves and liars, mocking the Holocaust and its victims, and cheering anti-Jewish terrorism and violence. He spent last summer cheering the Hezbollah attacks on Israel. He has defamed Elie Wiesel for years. He trivializes the Holocaust and denies that Six Million Jews were murdered by Nazi Germany (although does not claim that no Jews at all were killed). He works closely with Neo-Nazi groups and Holocaust Deniers, and is widely proclaimed to be the “Jewish David Irving“. Finkelstein claims Germany is the victim of Jewish extortion. He has publicly praised David Irving (who claims no Jews were killed at Auschwitz) as a great historian. He is considered to be a Holocaust Denier by the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Wiesenthal Center. He has been strongly denounced by Prof. Alan Dershowitz as an anti-Semite and fraud. In Israel, Finkelstein has been widely praised by anti-Israel Ben Gurion University extremist lecturer Neve Gordon.Finkelstein had been employed in the past few years by DePaul University, a large Catholic college in Chicago. Before that he had been fired from every academic post he ever held. His entire “academic record” consists of anti-Semitic “books”. This past weekend, DePaul University officially gave Finkelstein the boot, denying him tenure, and in effect firing him (effective some time this coming academic year). It is doubtful he will ever be able to hold any sort of academic post again in the civilized world. That being the case, the question arises of what Normie will now be doing for a second career. Being helpful sorts, we have given the matter some thought and have come up with a list of possible career moves for him, once DePaul requires that he remove his carcass off campus in a few weeks:1. He can be the new Dean of History at the University of Teheran.2. He can grew side curls and join the Neturei Karta.3. He can open a fast food stand that serves fish and chips to the British Association of University Professors and the University and College Union.4. He can be Avrum Burg’s butler in France.5. He can become official Baathist mascot at soccer games in Damascus.6. He can write a Master’s thesis under Ilan Pappe about how the Jews murdered all the Arabs in Atlantis.7. He can get a job tearing squares of toilet paper on Friday afternoons for Chicago area synagogues, before the sabbath.8. He can become a make-pretend cowboy and then chase make-pretend Indian Ward Churchill.9. He can paint circles on his rear end and then pose next to the security fence around the Gaza Strip.10. He can learn ebonics, change his name to Norman X, and go to work for Louis Farrakhan.11. He can be adopted legally as the son of Ernst Zundel, Neo-Nazi deported from Canada to Germany.12. He can be David Irving’s prison honey.13. He can join Gush Shalom.14. He can serve as designated driver for when Mel Gibson gets drunk.15. He can be the chief pimp for the “Women in Black“.16. He can test explosives belts for the Hamas.17. He can write some more anti-Semitic garbage with Alexander Cockburn.18. He can work as a shabbas goy at the Ramat Hovav garbage dump.19. He can serve as pothole filler.20. He can get tenured at Ben Gurion University.
