Cambridge Professor Outed as Anti-Semite and Neo-Nazi Sympathizer
09 Apr 2007
Anti-Jewish Professor to speak at Newton South High School, Wednesday April 11 at lunchtime
Chomsky.jpg
On April 11, Newton South High School, with the approval of Superintendent Jeffrey Young (who is Jewish) and the tacit support of the Newton School Committee (majority Jewish), will be hosting Noam Chomsky in a public forum in the auditorium during the school’s lunch hour, when the maximum number of students will be available to attend. This will mark Chomsky’s first speaking engagement in a Newton Public School, and as far as can be determined, his first appearance in any public school in decades.

Chomsky is a Jewish professor so reviled in the American Jewish community he was excommunicated by a Rabbinical Court in 1983, a rare edict dispensed barely a dozen times in the 20th century, most notably to Leon Trotsky, co-founder of Soviet Communist Russia.

Chomsky’s hatred for the United States is only eclipsed by his hatred for Israel. In his books on the Middle East he frequently refers to Nazi-like behavior on the part of Israel. He claims that Israel shares “points of similarity with the Third Reich.” He spoke of the threat of “Jewish dominance in the region” and how Israel was involved in “a Final Solution from which few will escape.” He’s charged Israel with “a repetition of Nazi crimes” and even ranted about the “genocidal texts of the Bible.”

In the book “Partners in Hate: Noam Chomsky and the Holocaust Deniers” Dr. Werner Cohn states, “Chomsky gave his name in support of Robert Faurisson, the well known French neo-Nazi Holocaust denier. He has published in the neo-Nazi’s journal. He went out of his way to have his [Chomsky’s] book published by neo Nazis. He has promoted the anti-Semitic idea that the Jewish religion is basically anti-social.”

The former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan, David Duke, even praised Chomsky “for daring to expose the truth about Zionism and Jewish supremacism.”

In the world according to Chomsky the United States is inherently evil, “Washington is the torture and political murder capital of the world.” He declared shortly after the 9/11 bombings, “The U.S. is a leading terrorist state, as are its clients.” He described the subsequent U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan as “sort of a silent genocide” in which millions of Afghanis would die if the U.S. defeated the Taliban.

What goes on in Chomsky’s mind would baffle the psychiatrist, let alone the columnist. The volume of information indicting him is so acute it leaves one to gasp in astonishment that any intelligent responsible school administrator would invite him to address an auditorium of high school students. There is no viable excuse other than the underlying probability that a cabal of extremist Newton educators is so virulently anti-American, so viciously anti-Israel, they would gleefully invite one of the most notorious propagandists of the last 40 years to complement their dirty work.

Basic morality dictates that there is something monumentally inappropriate for a public school with a large percentage of Jewish students, a Jewish school superintendent, a majority Jewish School Committee, and a Jewish mayor, to let Noam Chomsky in the door of Newton South High.

-----------------------------


There will be a protest outside Newton South High School to coincide with the appearance of Noam Chomsky there. Here is the email circulating:

"Alert for Wednesday, April 11 re: Chomsky talk at Newton South High

Demonstrators needed to show a significant presence in opposition to Noam Chomsky speaking to students at Newton South High School. He is speaking during lunchtime. Details of the exact time and location will be sent as soon as information is received...

It is critical to us, to the students and to the school authorities that we stand up in opposition to the outrageous choice of a well known anti-Israel, anti-American basher that allows him to come into our neighborhood schools to present twisted information to our young people."

This article is LIBELOUS

Chomsky is not an anti-Semite, nor is he a sympathizer of Neo-Nazis. Your claim is a flat-out lie and it exposes Zionists for what they are: smear mongers, liars, and defamers. This article should be taken down.
of course

Of course Chomsky isn't really racist against Jews. The point of this post was two-fold.

1. to point out how wrong these kinds of allegations are against activists who criticize Israel and US/Israeli wars and against activists who oppose the continuance of a Jewish-supremacist state in Palestine.

and 2. to suggest that maybe some anti-war and anti-Israel activists should go out to Newton South tomorrow with anti-war signs and pro-Palestinian signs to counter-protest against these ultra-Likkudnik crazies who will be protesting against Chomsky.

The real Tom Mountain published this article in the Jewish Advocate newspaper as a serious article. The call for the protest is from a rightwing blog. These rightwing zionist activists are a serious problem. They are very racist and hateful. People should be protesting against zionist anti-Muslim anti-Arab hate groups whenever they mobilize.
quite acceptable
10 Apr 2007
Anti-semitism, Jew bashing, what ever you' d like to call it is quite acceptable in certain circles. In fact, its the only form of racism that is acceptable. An clear example is the remarkably racist assumption that if a person has Jewish genetic backgrond it thus becomes impossible for them to be racist towards Jews. Antoher example is to reject the right of Jews, but only Jews, to national self determination, often in the form of innappropriately demonizing Israel as the only Jewish state.
Protest Updated
10 Apr 2007
Update on April 11 "Demonstration for Fair Balance in Newton Schools " at Newton South High School in
response to a talk to students by widelyrecognized
anti-Israel, anti-American extremist Noam Chomsky.

10:00--11:00AM Media, parents, and some pro-Israel activists arrive.

11:00 Am -12:15 Speaker addresses students in
auditorium. Parents may listen from another area. No videos etc.

2:40 PM Students leave school. ( A good time from them to see a large group of anti-Chomsky demonstrators with signs. Activists should hand out literature for students to bring home.)

Directions: Going East toward Boston take right onto Parker St off Rt.9 About three blocks up see signs on left to Newton South High School. Brandeis Rd. is close to entrance to High School. Look for Melissa from Christians and Jews United for Israel with signs and literature.

Racism is a straw man
10 Apr 2007
Opposition to the government of Israel is not (inherently) anti-semitic

Opposition to the government of the US is not anti-american

But crying racism or terrorism or communism or stalinism or pickyourism reduces the whole debate to name calling without examining any or of the real content of the issue.

Don't fall for it. The question isn't Noam's thoughts on Jews it's what is the US government doing and what is the Israeli government doing. Go ahead and disagree, but disagree intelligently.

Not that the left ever reduces complex arguments to racism, fascism, stalinism, authoritarianism....

"He was excommunicated by a Rabbinical Court in 1983, a rare edict dispensed barely a dozen times in the 20th century, most notably to Leon Trotsky, co-founder of Soviet Communist Russia."

>> I'm still waiting for the Pope to excommunicate me. As an anarchist, I would consider it an honor. I'm sure Trotsky considered it an honor to be excommunicated and I bet Chomsky does too. All this proves is that religious institutions support the status quo, as Alexander Berkman would have told you.<<

"Chomsky’s hatred for the United States is only eclipsed by his hatred for Israel."

>>I guess criticizing something means you HATE it. At least in the small minded world of Zionists. As for the degree he criticizes Israel, I've listened to him myself and read his books and he considered Israel a US puppet, so I reject your charges.<<

"n his books on the Middle East he frequently refers to Nazi-like behavior on the part of Israel. He claims that Israel shares 'points of similarity with the Third Reich.'"

>>Any objective person would agree with Chomsky on this. Israel does share points of similarity with the Third Reich. Herzl, the founder of Zionism, is from the same current of thought that gave rise to Nazism. Both were nationalists and both wanted separation. The modern state of Israel is Jewish supremesist. I'm sure Hitler would have notice the similarities too.<<

"In the book 'Partners in Hate: Noam Chomsky and the Holocaust Deniers' Dr. Werner Cohn states, 'Chomsky gave his name in support of Robert Faurisson, the well known French neo-Nazi Holocaust denier.' "

>>I know nothng about Robert Faurisson. However, being an idiot about history should not be a crime. Moreover, it should not land people in jail. Only those with Nazi like minds would support the imprisonment of those with a false belief about history (or anything else for that matter)<<

"The former Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan, David Duke, even praised Chomsky 'for daring to expose the truth about Zionism and Jewish supremacism.'"

>> Yeah, and I bet Duke quotes Jesus too. So what? Is one responsible for those who quote one's work? That is the most pathetic of your charges and it reveals what a weasel you are.<<<

"In the world according to Chomsky the United States is inherently evil, 'Washington is the torture and political murder capital of the world.' He declared shortly after the 9/11 bombings, 'The U.S. is a leading terrorist state, as are its clients.' He described the subsequent U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan as 'sort of a silent genocide' in which millions of Afghanis would die if the U.S. defeated the Taliban."

>> While I strongly suspect you've inserted some views of your own in the above, I agree 100% with Chomskey that the United States Government and its ruling class is inherently evil. Good for Chomsky!<<

"What goes on in Chomsky’s mind would baffle the psychiatrist, let alone the columnist. The volume of information indicting him is so acute it leaves one to gasp in astonishment that any intelligent responsible school administrator would invite him to address an auditorium of high school students."

>>The Soviets smeared dissidents too with accusations of mental illness. Nothing new here.<<

"There is no viable excuse other than the underlying probability that a cabal of extremist Newton educators is so virulently anti-American, so viciously anti-Israel, they would gleefully invite one of the most notorious propagandists of the last 40 years to complement their dirty work."

>> Did you say 'Cabal'? Well, I guess that makes you an anti-semite.<<

"Basic morality dictates that there is something monumentally inappropriate for a public school with a large percentage of Jewish students, a Jewish school superintendent, a majority Jewish School Committee, and a Jewish mayor, to let Noam Chomsky in the door of Newton South High."

>> Actually, it shows that the Jewish superintendent and the Jewish School Committee are examples of intelligence and enlightenment. I praise them. <<

There certainly is something "monumentally inappropriate" to expect that members of a particular ethnic group (in this case Jewish) in positions of public trust elected by the whole citizenry to carry out their duties in an impartial fashion should use their office(s) to favor or promote the interests (real or imagined) of their own ethnic group ahead of other. Is that why there is a Jewish mayor, a Jewish-majority School Committee, a Jewish superintendent: to favor Jews and Jewish interests over everybody else? If it is, the we're all in for a serious re-think about electing or appointing anymore candidates, Jewish or otherwise, that are there to serve their own tribe first and everyone else last! If you want to turn this into a Jewish supremecy issue, then it won't be taken lying down. The rest of us will be heard from!
You must be joking...

It is obvious of course that Noam Chomsky is one of the United States’ most respected intellectuals. Whether it has to do with linguistics, East Timor, Central America, Palestine, Lebanon, or U.S. foreign policy, Chomsky is unequalled as a thoughtful and persistent speaker, writer, and analyst.

Of course the other nonsense this post includes is that it is wrong to use any reference to the Nazis in reference to Israelis. Funny that. I’ve seen Israeli peaceniks quoted in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz do just that.

It is imperative that Americans wake up and smell the coffee. We are in the process of bankrupting our country morally, economically, and (wrongly or rightly) probably squandering our supremacy by our tragically flawed actions in the Middle East. Whether it is the destruction and gradual ethnic cleansing in Gaza and the West Bank, the destruction of the Lebanese civilian infrastructure and the marine ecosystem, the melt-down in Iraq, or the threats against Iran, we have to understand how our foreign policy got to this impasse. We must be realistic about the way that the ultra-right pro-Israel lobby of this country has influenced our politicians. Look at the anti-Iran messages Hillary and Edwards put out at the recent AIPAC meetings.

We need to know the truth about our foreign policy, in order to understand what Congress is up to, and to re-direct our flawed path. Chomsky is a courageous warrior for the truth who we need to listen to.
zionist
15 Apr 2007
you, nancy from oregon, are simply a zionist in disguise. any moderation in this issue is clearly the work of JEWISH bankers and media moguls.

the movement to attack sudan is spearheaded by JEWa wringing their hands in dark, semi-lit rooms in the basement of the whitehouse.

of course we're not hearing the real issues here! how can we hear about the corruption of the JEW if the JEW owns the media?

protect Sudan! protect North Korea! Protect Syria! long live hamas! down with the JEW!
