Foxman dedicated his life to warning about and combating anti-Semitism. Shamir also speaks with historian Norman Finkelstein, known for his controversial book ‘The Holocaust Industry’. Finkelstein takes Israeli politicians and Jewish interest groups to task for taking advantage of the memory of the Holocaust, for financial and political gain. Is the Holocaust being misused to justify Israeli actions in the conflict with Palestine?
