So maybe he meant it as a compliment? Chomsky also is an intimate friend and supporter of Holocaust Deniers. In defending Holocaust Denier Faurisson, MIT professor Noam Chomsky wrote: “I see no anti-Semitic implications in denial of the existence of gas chambers or even denial of the Holocaust. Nor would there be anti-Semitic implications, per se, in the claim that the Holocaust (whether one believes it took place or not) is being exploited, viciously so, by apologists for Israeli repression and violence. I see no hint of anti-Semitic implications in Faurisson's work." (cited on Wikipedia) Personally – I would let him in and then immediately arrest him for Holocaust Denial.
