Based on scores of human rights reports, Norman G. Finkelstein's new book presents a meticulously researched inquest into Gaza's martyrdom. He shows that although Israel has tried to justify its assaults in the name of self-defense, in fact Israel's actions constitute flagrant violations of international law. Finkelstein also documents that the guardians of international law-from Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch to the UN Human Rights Council-ultimately failed Gaza. One of his most disturbing conclusions is that, after Judge Richard Goldstone's humiliating retraction of his UN report, human rights organizations succumbed to the Israeli juggernaut. Finkelstein's magnum opus is both a monument to Gaza's martyrs and an act of resistance against the forgetfulness of history.

"No scholar has done more to shed light on Israel's ruthless treatment of the Palestinians than Norman Finkelstein. In Gaza, he meticulously details Israel's massacres... while demolishing the myths Israel and its supporters have invented to disguise these shocking events."
- John J. Mearsheimer, Distinguished Service Professor, University of Chicago

Norman Finkelstein has the moral gravity of an Old Testament prophet, the scrupulous attention to detail of a Talmudic scholar, and the mordant sense of humor of a Yiddish novelist. All these attributes are on display in Gaza: An Inquest into its Martyrdom, an indictment of Israel's crimes in the overcrowded Palestinian territory from 2008 up to the present.

Brian Edwards-Tiekert is the founder and co-host of UpFront, the morning drive-time public affairs program on KPFA Radio.
