I can't wait to hear the story behind this story. From what level did this decision come? Surely the Israeli government can hold its own against Mr. Chosky. Look on You Tube for a nice debate between Chomsky and Alan Dershowitz.. This is not an issue of whether or not Chomsky is anti-Israel. It's a matter of freedom of speech. Unless Israel is able to provide a salient reason for this decision, Israel will look bad. No question, Chomsky's politics are on the left, but that is not the issue.
