This is totally ludicrous...but no more so than Daniel Barenboim & the West-East Divan Orchestra having to give their historical Concert in Ramallah with Spanish diplomatic passports. The Israeli government does some truly stupid, counter productive things. If Prof Chomsky is b rave enough to lecture at Bir Zeit then he should certainly be allowed to do so! The parallels with South Africa that seemed so ludicrous to me in the past don't seem so far off the mark now.
