And don't let the door hit you on the way out!

Ha’aretz is reporting that disgraced US professor Norman Finkelstein has been denied entrance to Israel:
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.

Professor Norman Finkelstein was interrogated for several hours and held in an airport cell before being put on a plane back to Amsterdam, his point of departure. Finkelstein said he was told he could not return to Israel for 10 years.
What are the odds that his refusal was linked to the hi-jinx he recently got up to in Lebanon?
