    professor chomsky was brought up in a jewish, zionist family where hebrew was a spoken language. as the lone jewish family in the neighbourhood, little noam suffered much from antisemitic bullies. little noam was also terrified hearing on the radio the lunatic ravings of hitler. none of this experience served as a cautionary lesson. professor chomsky, by then world famous, wrote a preface to the book of the holocaust denying faurisson. chomsky, as many far left intellectuals, has a tendency to side with those that many others would consider unholy. he supports both hezbollah and hamas, and had paid a visit to nasrallah. this support and this visit had probably much to do with the refusal to let him enter the west bank. recently publicised new entry regulations to the west bank must have also played a role. hence, it is incorrect to state that a war has been declared on intellect. chomsky's intellect is not in question. his judgment is. as a personal note, about half the time i agree with chomsky. i also think that it would have been wiser to let him enter, given his position and his age.

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
