Considering that Burston is a disciple of Chomsky, then some observations ought to be made. According to Chomsky, Iran is a more democratic state than the USA (regardless of what Left wing American Jews may think of their own country). According to the same Chomsky, Iran's elections last June were free, and more representative than the US elections. The same professor of Linguistics goes on to claim that US, UK and Israel are terrorist states. So if we follow Chomskian newspeak, which Burston is diluting, then yes, Israel is fascist, just like the UK (mother of all western democracies), whereas Iran isa free democratic stae, and Ahmadinejad a champion of freedom and religous tolerance, gay and women's rights. Perhaps Ahmadinejad should be invited to Israel, to teach about freedom and human rights.
