The New York Times reports that 81-year-old philosopher Noam Chomsky was barred by Israel from entering Palestine today, and interrogated for two hours.
Noam Chomsky, in an interview by Deborah Solomon of the New York Times, in 2003, said:
“I objected to the founding of Israel as a Jewish state.
I don’t think a Jewish or Christian or Islamic state is a proper concept. I would object to the United States as a Christian state.”
Deborah Solomon: “Your father was a respected Hebraic scholar, and sometimes you sound like a self-hating Jew.”
Chomsky: “It is a shame that critics of Israeli policies are seen as either anti-Semites or self-hating Jews.
If an Italian criticized Italian policies, would he be seen as a self-hating Italian?”
