DePaul University professor Norman Finkelstein addressed Columbians in Roone Arledge Auditorium Wednesday night on what he deemed a “contrived and fabricated controversy” surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Hundreds of students, professors, administrators, and non-affiliates poured into the auditorium to hear the controversial author’s speech, titled “Israel and Palestine: Misuse of Anti-Semitism, Abuse of History.” The event was sponsored by a coalition of student groups led by the Muslim Students Association.
