Noam Chomsky has no record of defending any human rights other than those of Palestinians. To call him a human rights activist is a mistake--he is an anti-Israel propagandist, making use of the fact that he was born Jewish. Just another useful idiot as far as the Arabs are concerned, despite all his scholarship, which is NOT in the field of human rights, geopolitics or international law. Any shoemaker know enough to stick to his profession, but Prof. Chomsky doesn't realise that he has no expertise in the field he claims to espouse, so he tries to be an "authority". If he hates Israel and the US so much, let him live in Gaza to see how he likes it.
