Interview_noam_chomsky

World-renowned political dissident, linguist, author and MIT professor Noam Chomsky joins us to discuss his recent trip to the Gaza Strip, where he publicly called on Israel to put an end to the blockade on the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave. "[Gaza] is a lesson for people from the West," Chomsky says. "If they can struggle on under really harsh and brutal conditions, it tells us we ought to be doing a lot more." Chomsky also comments on President Obama’s re-election, saying: "There are two good things: one, the worst did not happen, and it might have. The second is, it is over. We can put it behind us and get back to work." [Transcript to come. Check back soon.]

  1. Thank you for the clip of my [also sadly] old MIT professor!
    How long must the US population submit to being blackmailed by AIPAC & Co.?
    Has BHO a bit more freedom of [in- ? :-(] action now?

  2. Noam Chomsky is perhaps the most world-renowned psycholinguist.

    He has also been termed the most-quoted authoritative figure in America.

    He has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Israeli government.

    He is only one of a handful of Jewish civilians who have gone into Gaza after the IDF pullout in 2005 – one of the other individuals being journalist Amira Hass.
