Norman Finkelstein Arrested in Israel

"And the American academic Norman Finkelstein has been arrested and ordered deported from Israel. Finkelstein arrived in Tel Aviv earlier today on his way to the Occupied Territories. He was immediately detained and told he is banned from Israel for ten years. He's expected to be deported tomorrow. Finkelstein is known as one of the most prominent academic critics of Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. He was detained by the Interior Ministry and Shin Bet.")

He wasn't arrested. He just wasn't allowed in.

See, the SOVEREIGN state of Israel, like every other SOVEREIGN state, decides who should be allowed to enter and who shouldn't.

Now, since Fink obviously feels more comfortable with the jihadis, he should visit them instead.
