(NECN: Jennifer Eagan, Worcester, Mass.) - Students rallied outside Clark University Monday in response to the school's decision to cancel a controversial speaker. The university's president told students Dr. Norman Finkelstein wouldn't be allowed to visit campus later this month. Finkelstein is a scholar of the Israeli Palestinian conflict and was scheduled to speak on that topic at Clark. He's also faced controversy for his views on the Holocaust. Finkelstein's parents survived World War II concentration camps. He's written and spoken of a “Holocaust industry”, which he says exploits the genocide to further Israeli interests and make money. As the president of Clark noted in the student newspaper last week, Dr. Finkelstein's speaking engagement was canceled because it fell during the same week as a conference hosted by Clark’s center for holocaust and genocide studies.
