If we had our own Norman Finkelstein, who spoke out about our own crimes and held up the mirror of introspection before us, we would also call him a sellout, a turncoat, a hypocrite… and our own community activists would attack him without relent, until he finally capitulated into silent submission to the gatekeepers of political orthodoxy. We do not speak truth even against ourselves. We seek contingent truths which serve ourselves instead.
