Audio: Challenging Noam Chomsky’s opposition to boycotting Israel (Ali Abunimah & Jeff Blankfort)
Why does Noam Chomsky oppose boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel, and why does he think Palestinians should not talk about justice and redress for their ethnic cleansing from their homeland in 1948? Why does Chomsky dismiss any talk about the influence of the Israel lobby? His pathetic views on the Lobby can be seen in THIS video.
or listen to it at Ali Abunimah’s Blog
Israel could have welcomed Chomsky with open arms. His non participation in the Movement is exactly the type of 'left winger’ Israel loves.
Universities in the Palestinian Territories have scores of professors to chose from that hold views in support of their cause. Chomsky is definitely not one of them.
Just my two cents…..
The following is a post from the archives, it states pretty clearly my personal opinion of the man.
NOAM CHOMSKY ~~ DILETTANTE EXTRAORDINAIRE
"It is wise to attend to deeds, not rhetoric" – Chomsky …… it would be wise if he made this his mantra.
