The Future of the Palestinians

Program #CHON194. Recorded in Madison, WI on September 03, 1986.

Chomsky denounces "the custodians of history who give the approved version" of reality. When it comes to Palestine he advises to "disabuse yourself of illusions and remember the facts." He warns, "The depth of racism in Tel Aviv and Washington toward the Palestinians prevents a just solution." Israel "is the state of the Jewish people not all citizens." If you oppose this fundamental fact you are called a Nazi. Israeli policies are an "impetus to what is called terrorism." Zionism and anti-Zionism is discussed as well as the 1982 Israel invasion of Lebanon.

Speaker(s):

Noam Chomsky

Noam Chomsky, by any measure, has led a most extraordinary life. In one index he is ranked as the eighth most cited person in history, right up there with Aristotle, Shakespeare, Marx, Plato and Freud. The legendary MIT professor practically invented modern linguistics. In addition to his pioneering work in that field he has been a leading voice for peace and social justice for many decades. Chris Hedges says he is “America’s greatest intellectual” who “makes the powerful, as well as their liberal apologists, deeply uncomfortable.” At 88, he still gives lectures all over the world. He is the author of scores of books, including Propaganda & the Public Mind, How the World Works, and Power Systems with David Barsamian.
