Amy Winehouse in, Norman Finkelstein out

The Shin Bet security service detained and deported an American Jewish professor who is a prominent critic of the Israeli occupation when he landed at Ben-Gurion International Airport on Friday.
There are some official reasons for booting the creep out, but the real one is:

Grammy Award winning recording artist Amy Winehouse is due in Israel "within weeks" to undergo a drug rehabilitation program, according to the London-based Jewish Chronicle newspaper.
We have a small place here, Norm, and two of you will be just one too many, you see. But you can always visit your Hezbollah buddies instead.

This is close enough for us, I suggest. And the place is fitting.
