Planet Chomsky - Synagoge Israel
Monday, May 17, 2010 at 5:44PM Gilad Atzmon
The Israeli Interior Ministry on Sunday denied entry to
Jewish American linguist Prof. Noam Chomsky turning him back
from the Allenby Bridge border crossing in the Jordan Valley.
Seemingly, the moral ash cloud that is pouring out of the
morbid Jewish ghetto known as Israel is not going to clear.
It is there to stay.
On the face of it, Chomsky.s border incident shouldn.t take
us by surprise. Israel is the Jewish state and as such it
operates as a synagogue of great magnitude. The synagogue is
an exclusive entity, it only allows in those who fit. The
synagogue is neither democratic nor liberal, it is actually
subject to tribal judgments that have very little to do with
ethics or universalism.
In the Jewish State, Prof Noam Chomsky is apparently a
persona non grata, however, Alan Dershowitz, a shallow
intellect is seemingly the hero of Tel Aviv University.
A week ago, during a University symposium, Dershowitz said
that Israel's biggest problem is Israel-bashing .Jews. like
Norman Finkelstein and Gilad Atzmon. He said some people live
on what he calls "Planet Chomsky". Dershowitz didn.t do his
homework. Clearly I myself share very little with Chomsky. As
if this is not enough, I am not a Jew for more than a while.
However, it doesn.t take a genius to detect a continuum
between Israel and Dershowitz. A week ago Chomsky was a
.planet.. Yesterday, at a Jordan valley border crossing, he
was denied entry to the .Jews only universe.. The astronomy
of the Jewish cosmos is pretty simple. You do not need a
Galileo figure. The Jewish planet seeks total submissive
Interestingly enough, Chomsky is not exactly the harsh anti
Zionist figure that Dershowitz wants us to believe. Along the
years, Chomsky was flirting heavily with Zionism. He was
often visiting Israeli universities. I myself attended his
Tel Aviv University lectures in the 1980.s. Chomsky was
spreading some bizarre ungrounded ideas defying early Zionist
commitment to the Jewish state. As American activist Jeff
Blankfort pointed out recently Chomsky has been dismissing
the power of the pro-Israel lobby. He opposed the BDS
movement and made some efforts to "dissuade people from using
the term, apartheid, to describe Israel's control over
Palestinian society". Chomsky also opposes the Palestinian
right of return and a one-state solution. Chomsky is in
fact, a liberal Zionist as well as a kibbutz enthusiast. He
may as well be the prototype of the righteous Jew and Zionist
fig leaf. And in spite of that Israel denied the entry of the
82 year old American academic
Israel now admits that it made a mistake. In fact Israel
couldn.t inflict more harm on itself. As it happens,
Chomsky.s border incident yesterday may as well be the
biggest contribution the American academic has ever made to
the anti Zionist struggle.
As the truth of Israeli barbarism is unfolding, more and more
Westerners admit that time is ripe for the nations to spit
out Israel, for the Jewish state doesn.t have room amongst
nations. But the nations shouldn.t stop there. Time is also
overdue to spit the Dershowitzes and other Zionist comic
figures from our public, academic, social and intellectual
life. De-Zionification is of the essence in the search for
peace and humanity.
