The Stalinist state known as Israel: Chomsky

More on Noam Chomsky’s barring from entering the West Bank by “democratic” Israel (a move supported by an Israeli politician of the supposedly centrist Kadima party but opposed by a leading columnist):

In a telephone conversation last night from Amman, Chomsky told Haaretz that he concluded from the questions of the Israeli official that the fact that he came to lecture at a Palestinian and not an Israeli university led to the decision to deny him entry.

“I find it hard to think of a similar case, in which entry to a person is denied because he is not lecturing in Tel Aviv. Perhaps only in Stalinist regimes,” Chomsky told Haaretz.
