Anti-Israel advocate and professor Norman Finkelstein posted on his personal blog that there were "four reasons" to support Democratic congressional candidate Charles Barron in next Tuesday's primary for New York's Eighth Congressional District: "Ed Koch, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), City Councilman David Greenfield and state Assemblyman Dov Hikind."

Koch, Nadler, Greenfield, and Hikind are all Democrats who have opposed Barron for his history of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic statements and are supporting Barron's primary opponent, Hakeem Jeffries.

Finkelstein joins white supremacist David Duke and retiring congressman Edolphus Towns in supporting Greefield. The primary is on June 26.
