Mr. Noam Chomsky is a renowned Linquist and generally regarded as one of international societies leading intellectuals and here is what he thinks of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. A situation which tragically is once again very topical as they deploy “collective punishment” which is an official war crime to murder over 100 Palestinian men, women and children, maim hundreds more and destroy hundreds of civilian homes. I never knowingly buy anything being sold by Israel, just as I did during the boycott which helped to bring down the evil Apartheid white supremacist state of South Africa I urge you to follow my lead.
“The incursion and bombardment of Gaza is not about destroying Hamas. It is not about stopping rocket fire into Israel, it is not about achieving peace. The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons of the modern battlefield on a largely defenseless civilian population, is the final phase in a decades-long campaign to ethnically-cleanse Palestinians.Israel uses sophisticated attack jets and naval vessels to bomb densely-crowded refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, mosques, and slums to attack a population that has no air force, no air defense, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armor, no command in control, no army… and calls it a war. It is not a war, it is murder. When Israelis in the occupied territories now claim that they have to defend themselves, they are defending themselves in the sense that any military occupier has to defend itself against the population they are crushing. You can’t defend yourself when you’re militarily occupying someone else’s land. That’s not defense. Call it what you like, it’s not defense”.-------- NOAM CHOMSKY.
Noam Chomsky is a nonentity and using him, shows how desperate you have become.
No one has taken him seriously for years...
terrible terrible situation in the middle east not helped by either the uk or the us creating turmoil in the region chasing their oil, and finding customers for their weapons.
And for once I completely agree with you, "Mr. Noam Chomsky is a renowned Linquist and generally regarded as one of international societies leading intellectuals"
and heres a report from the Scotsman, your favourite scottish rag,.
"POLITICAL thinker and academic Noam Chomsky has revealed his support for a Yes vote in the upcoming referendum on Scottish independence."
Is this you starting your journey from the dark side into the light?

Chomsky's views on Scottish independence are driven by his politics, he knows that an independent Scotland would be chaotic and likely to lead to serious unrest.
He is one of the world's great linguists and intellectuals and he is also an anarchist. So, a good try Mr./Ms. Anonymous but, no cigar.

Mr. Chomsky will be inconsolable when he reads this.
got it now terry, Chomsky is highly intelligent and wise, except when he talks about Scotland, then he's a moronic nationalist nazi waiting to stab english grannies after a yes vote.
It's a lot clearer now, your hypocrisy I mean..

Chomsky is a brilliant man and someone that I admire greatly but it's hardly my fault if you are unable to understand him is it?.
"Chomsky is a brilliant man and someone that I admire greatly but it's hardly my fault if you are unable to understand him is it?."
i presume this is deflection rather than stupidity, I understand Chomsky's views on Israel I also understand his view on Scottish Independence, why is this the only point on which you consider him to be less than Brilliant? You don't have to agree with everything he says but you surely need to acknowledge that if the brilliant man thinks it is a good idea then it may have merits you previously overlooked in your haste to rally behind the good old union jack with your westminster labour colleagues.
Is your new labour training so embedded that you can't actually answer a straight question, even to yourself ?

If you are claiming that Chomsky is in favour of Scottish independence for the same reasons you are then you are either thick or dishonest or perhaps both.
so the answer is yes, you cant even be honest with yourself.
Mr Chomsky's reasons may well be different from mine, although how you know that interests me since I am anonymous.
nevertheless he still has reasons to support scottish independence this by your definition makes him a moron.
if not can you explain his valid and wise reasons for supporting scottish independence and advise why you disagree with them.
"so the answer is yes"
To you obviously but I consider you to be dumb so I'n not concerned with what you think. The reasons for Mr. Chomsky's opinions on Scottish independence are similar to his usual reasoning which is 'will this help or hinder the cause of anarchy'I doubt that that is your reasoning about Scottish independence.
"advise why you disagree with them"
I don't and you simply can't grasp this can you?.
the teams have been picked terry;
UK labour, conservatives, lib dems
Ukip, BNP, Britain first, the orange order, better together, vote no borders, house of lords the brittanica party.
Is their a single principle you haven't sold out on to be part of this mob.
Lets look at the opposition Terry;
snp, yes scotland, scottish greens, ssp, nhs for yes, mums for change, business scotland, labour for indy, national collective, generation yes, women for indy,
We seem to be short of right wing nut jobs (Apart from your imaginary version of the snp of course)do you know any we could recruit that haven't already declared for no.

You clearly find it difficult to understand the difference between the political and the constitutional, to be fair they are quite big words aren't they. Try thinking of the composition of the British military forces in WW2, that was the last big world war (it was in all the papers at the time), the one where the snp wanted to support Hitler and the Nazis remember?. People of every persuasion except the snp ‘tartan shirts’ and the British fascist ‘black shirts’ stood shoulder to shoulder to defend Britain and indeed the world from the great evil of fascism which the snp supported. Political persuasions were irrelevant then and everyone accepted that they would go back to being political opponents after Hitler was beaten, just as we are doing now, the Greens and the SSP and the snp will also go back to opposing each other when the laugharendum is over. BTW your hilarious list of imaginary groups you claim to have supporting you excluded some people, You forgot the butchers, the bakers and the candlestick makers for indy. You still have 9 weeks in which you can make yourselves look even more ridiculous and pathetic and I have every confidence that you will manage to do that.
what scares you more Terry, Independence or the fact that the people are waking up and about to scrape the parasitic scab of labour from their backs. No more Ermine vermin, you could move down south and get your OBE I suppose, except once you aren't bringing cattle fodder voters then labour uk will drop you like a stone. how sad too bad.
What ever happened to the SNPs Arthur Donaldson ????
Kelly, Egypt offers to broker a cease fire, Israel accepts, Hamas refuses.
Why would Hamas turn the offer down?

Gaza has been blockaded for a long time and the Jailers are Israel and Egypt. Egypt have refused to open it's border access to the ppeople of Gaza despite them being bombed by the Zionist murderers and guess what?, Hamas does not trust them. Did you train to be an idiot or does it come naturally to you?.

He died at the age of 91 confirming the saying that"only the good die young".
He is however still honoured annually by the snp with "The Arthur Donaldson memorial Lecture". This annual lecture honours a man who became leader of the snp despite being a Nazi sympather and like many snp people of his time an anti Irish anti Catholic racist sectarian bigot. The snp try to avoid talking about their past, I wonder why?.

Kelly @ 9.46
Thank you for the enquiry, Councillor, but I was fine til I began reading your blog.
I did think Hamas refusing a cease fire, along with their habit of lobbing rockets into Israeli markets, while screaming 'Don't you dare hit me back,' might have untwisted your Mid-East perspective, but I see you're still sound as ever on the matter.
Kelly @ 9.46 Wednesday, July 16, 2014 12:11:00 pm
"I see you're still sound as ever on the matter"
Sound enough to know that perpetrators of war crimes no matter how awful can usually find someone to give them succour.
Does that apply to the Katyn Forest massacre, Councillor?
Shall we just say Hamas are fortunate to be facing the IDF and not the Red Army.
Incidentally,where does the money to buy Hamas the missiles, come from? It's a wild guess, but I suspect it comes from gullible idiots like you.
