    The state of Israel is truely becoming with horrible speed an oppresion system that singular in the so called "free world". Almost each month at least one famous international personality is denied access into Israel or even Palestine, From here it's just a step to start forbidding books, then thoughts and some day to put books and people on fire. Obama was already set alight all over Jerusalem, thanks G_d still only his picture. It's extremly interesting to see that the Interior Ministry treated Chomsky in a way that clearly reminds me of the anti-sermitic behaviour of the national-socialist Ge(heime)Sta(ats)Po(lizei): The Israeli security services apparently start to assume that all Jews in the world have to get an Israeli passport, wihich will then be required at Israel's borders and will identify the owner as a Jew. David Star revived? One could think that Chomsky or a Spanish clown are feared more by Israel than Palestinians from the grabbed territories or from abroad. They are usually at least let get in. On behalf of many of my academic collegues in the world I strongly condemn the autoritarian and human rights violating acts of the Israeli government, and call upon the teaching graduate and post-graduate world to stop giving lectures at Israeli universities as long as those universities tacitly accept this and other new forms of educational and cultural apartheid imposed upon Israel and Palestine by the corrupt and virulently nazionist government of Erez Israel. An open letter & petition will be published shortly in Internet Prof. Dr. V.R. Schwartz
