[Marxism] What's up with Norman Finkelstein?

Norman Finkelstein is a valuable resource. For example, today's CounterPunch 
(http://www.counterpunch.org/finkelstein12282006.html) features an article 
by him defending the use of "Apartheid" in the title of Jimmy Carter's new 
book, based on a wide variety of ISRAELI sources.

But, although I've heard him on the radio and read his articles, I had never 
visited his website (http://www.normanfinkelstein.com/). What's the deal? 
The website features articles with titles like "Hitlerjugend wishes everyone 
a Merry Hitler Holiday" and "	Archbishop of Canterbury denies Holocaust," 
just to cite two. Does he just have a seriously warped sense of "humor," or 
is there something wrong with him (or both)? Or am I just missing the joke?

I treat this seriously because, as I said at the beginning, he is a valuable 
resource with lots of valuable information. But citing or quoting someone 
who has a website that looks like his, well, let's just say it isn't 
guaranteed to inspire credibility.
