If you ever wished your critical theory professor would be replaced by a group of dapper, miniaturized historical figures who sometimes rap, read on.
Noam Chomsky is leading a gaggle of Americans including Oliver Stone and Eve Ensler who back Jean-Luc Mélenchon as France’s new president.
Some smart folks at MIT have ranked the world’s most famous people from the past 6 millennia. You need to see where the Jews stand — starting with Moses, Jesus and Albert Einstein.
Noam Chomsky, the prominent American academic and critic of Israel, has made his first trip to the Gaza Strip.
The New School’s program, “The Jewish-American Relationship with Israel at the Crossroads,” raised my suspicions for two reasons: the one-sided composition of its panel and its scheduling from 4 to 6 PM on a Saturday afternoon. Was this meant as a deliberate slap at pro-Israel and religious Jews, I wondered?
The tenor of Middle East debate in this country is evolving faster than most of us realize, and in unpredictable directions. The latest is the attack on Noam Chomsky for being too sympathetic to Zionism.
Last month, far-left icon Noam Chomsky spoke about Iraq to students at Newton South High School. He came at the invitation of the Massachusetts high school’s Social Awareness Club. The choice of speaker sparked no small measure of outrage (which isn’t surprising, given that it sometimes seems as if the famed MIT linguist never met a problem he couldn’t blame on American foreign-policy). The invitation to Chomsky — no great friend of Israel — particularly irked members of Newton’s large Jewish community. In response, the school’s Jewish Student Union is calling in the heavy artillery: Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, who will speak at Newton South on June 5.
