Noam Chomsky Supports Hizballah, Iran

• Views: 1,348

In a lifetime filled with despicable statements and support for history’s worst regimes, MIT professor Noam Chomsky has finally hit absolute bottom as he visits the leader of the Hizballah terror gang, calls the United States a “leading terrorist state,” and supports Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons—to deter “Israeli aggression.” From Drudge Report. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)

Radical American thinker and MIT professor Noam Chomsky met with Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah in Beirut today and branded the U.S. a terrorist state.

“I think that Nasrallah has a reasoned argument and a persuasive argument that they (the weapons) should be in the hands of Hizbollah as a deterrent to potential aggression and there is plenty of background and reasons for that. So, I think his position, if I am reporting it correctly, and it seems to be a reasonable position, is that until there is a general political settlement in the region and the threat of aggression and violence is reduced or eliminated, there has to be a deterrent. The Lebanese army cannot be a deterrent.”

MORE:

“There is a meaning to the word terrorist, in fact you can read a definition of term terrorist is the U.S. code of laws. It gives a very clear, precise, adequate definition of the word terrorist. have been writing about terrorism for 25 years always using the official U.S. definition [of the word ”terrorist“], but that definition is un-usable, and the reason is that when you use that definition it turns out, not surprisingly, that the U.S. is one of the leading terrorist states, and the other states become terrorist or non-terrorist depending on how they are relating to U.S. goals.”

MORE:

“The regional superpower Israel is threatening to attack it [Iran], the U.S. is threatening to attack it. These threats alone are outright violations international law and of the U.N. charter. Iran is in difficulty. Iran has been trying for some years to negotiate settlement but the U.S. just refuses.”

Not anti-war. On the other side.

UPDATE at 5/11/06 5:25:21 pm:

It’s interesting to compare the careers of Ward Churchill, who was virtually unknown before being exposed as the author of the despicable “little Eichmanns” essay, and Noam Chomsky, who has been preaching (and profiting from) his virulent brand of anti-Americanism, influencing gullible college idiots (and the New York Times) and lending support to America’s sworn enemies, for many years.
