We Urge DePaul University not to grant tenure to Dr. Norman Finkelstein.
Academics across the political spectrum have demonstrated that Dr. Finkelsteins work does not meet even elementary academic standards.

His assertions are pure invention No facts alleged by Finkelstein should be assumed to be really facts, no quotation in his book should be assumed to be accurate, without taking the time to carefully compare his claims with the sources he cites. [University of Chicago historian Peter Novick, Offene Fenster und Tueren, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, February 7, 2001]

Finkelsteins work is, from beginning to end, a tendentious series of inventions [Historian Daniel Jonah Goldhagen,
at www.goldhagen.com/csiz2.html.]

Instead of engaging in reasonable and respectful debate, Dr. Finkelstein defames and demonizes scholars and others who disagree with him. He called Holocaust survivor, Nobel Prize winner Ellie Wiesel a resident clown of the Holocaust circus and a ridiculous character.

In our opinion, Finkelsteins association with DePaul University will damage DePauls reputation. DePaul will be seen as a school that fosters irresponsible scholarship, extremism and childish, hateful debate.

We will be very troubled if Dr. Finkelsteins coterie of supporters intimidates DePaul into granting an undeserved tenure.
We trust that DePaul will reach an informed decision.
