Noam Chomksy spoke about the current situation in Gaza to a packed audience at MIT on Tuesday. Among other things he said, “Supporters of Israel are in reality supporters of its moral degeneration.” For a report, you can go here and for a video of Chomsky’s talk here.
Chomsky turned 80 last month. He still seems in good health although he’s had his share of personal troubles lately. Not long after his last birthday Carol Chomsky, his wife of 5 decades, died after a long bout of cancer. Much can be said about Chomsky pro and con, but he’s an irreplaceable voice. When he’s gone, the world will be a poorer place.
