When the UK prevented Wilders from entering, was that also legitimate? Hilarious how far the author of this nonsense will go when he states, "unlike the far left psychotics in europe, chomsky doesn't agree with a boycott of israeli schools." Are you kidding, as if not being on the absolute fringe of lunacy, he is an ok guy? And what does that mean, "he has not changed his views, so israel MUST have changed"? What? There have been how many israeli governments since 1982, and they have ALL been bad according to this individual? That he is not a legitimate political scholar since his expertise is linguistics and not history is besides the point - he is against the existence of israel, and while he himself is not personally a threat, he provides cover for those who do take action. His statements are used all over the web and world by violent anti-semitic trash that would do israel harm. I am a centrist, and believe that free speech IS important - but he is an intransigent foe of israel, and his claims of support for a 2-state solution are like those of ahmadinejad's shills, "he never said he wanted to wipe israel off the map, he was only referring to the government." Total nonsense, which is what this article was...
