Norman Finklestein goes from an analogy of when received his Ph.D in Political Science from Princeton University when he mowed the lawn for them, to present day events in Gaza and the reference Israeli uses of their recent action in Gaza as Mowing the Lawn. In this amazing 30 minute speech Norman Finklestein connects the dots of the many incidents in detail leading up to the present war that occurred between Israeli and the Palestrina’s in Gaza. No one is spared from President Obama to UN Ban Ki-moon or even allegorical references to the classic 1932 movie The Freaks.
