Israel on the Road to Self-Destruction
Program #CHON236. Recorded in Los Angeles, CA on August 08, 2014.
Recorded at UCLA, Chomsky explains how U.S. “economic, military, diplomatic and not least ideological” support for Israel is “decisive. He says, “The U.S. is a declining power, many of the reasons self-inflicted.” But still, “at the UN there’s only one vote that counts:”- Washington’s. “Israel is facing a double crisis, a crisis of legitimization and a crisis of delegitimization.” Global opposition to its policies is mounting. Change? Chomsky says, “It’s very much in our hands. If our own society is democratic enough so that popular opinion makes a difference….then there are plenty of things we can do…to compel the U.S. to join the world on this issue and others.” If that happens, he concludes, “the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can certainly be mitigated, not solved, but set on a basis of a much more favorable outcome.”
