Does whatever good Israel has achieved by barring this person entry to its country outweigh all of the negative consequences Israel will have to deal with from the academic community for this? I don't like what this guy has to say either, but doesn't Israel realize that they are legitimizing and promoting further leftist attacks on themselves by doing this? Don't they know that this will only embolden Chomsky and the leftists? They are just giving Chomsky more material to bash Israel. Someone please explain the rationale!
