Noam Chomsky Denied Entrance Into Israel

The Israelis carried out a basic act of self-preservation today, by denying entrance to someone who wishes them dead

Noam Chomsky was denied entry into Israel via the Allenby Bridge border crossing on Sunday, he told Channel 10's Yaron London.

The world-renowned linguist, and sharp critic of the US and Israel was on his way to speak at Ramallah’s Bir Zeit University in the Palestinian territories, at the invitation of Palestinian Authority parliament member and liberal activist, Dr. Moustafa Barghouti,the sources reported.

He was allegedly held up on the Jordanian side of the crossing for over four hours and was finally sent back to Amman, with no official cause given for turning him back.

Well Boo Hoo, poor Noam. Have you tried traveling to Cambodia? I wonder how those people would feel if they knew you tried to claim Khmer Rouge holocaust never happened.
