Israel & the American Left
Program #CHON023. Recorded in New York, NY on April 20, 1986.
Contentious does not begin to describe this essential classic. Chomsky is joined by Paul Berman and Ellen Willis in a panel moderated by Michael Albert. There are heated exchanges on anti-Semitism, Israel and the Faurisson case. Chomsky says, "The left has a lot to answer for. It has played a significant role in enhancing the torment of the Palestinians and the moral degeneration of Israel." He adds, "Jews are entitled to remember Jerusalem for 2,000 years and entitled to return displacing the indigenous population but Palestinians are to forget their homeland after a generation and go somewhere else, anywhere will do." Recorded at the Borough of Manhattan Community College during the Socialist Scholar's Conference.
