Poor Chomsky

Antonio informs us that Noam Chomsky has been denied entry into Israel.  Antonio sagely observes

Il motivo non è ancora stato reso noto. Ma lo si può immaginare. Questa è la democrazia religiosa di stati come Israele.

Ma lo si può immaginare. Questa è la democrazia religiosa di stati come Israele indeed!  Democracy only applies to certain people.  Others – oh well.  Keep your thoughts to yourself…

    Why am I shocked that Antonio Lombatti bemoans someone who makes anti-Semitic remarks not getting into Israel. Why is this such a surprise. Why such a jejune understanding of what democracy is. Chomsky has time and again used his celebrity to attack Israel and Judaism.

    We all do not know the details of the incident, but I am not saddened in the least and I have every reason to believe the state of Israel upholds is democracy every day.

    To Antonio, I say grow up and blog on something useful and interesting. There are so many people ragging on Israel that he need not worry that his cause will be lost

      while i dont mind you calling me those big french words, antonio is a good guy and always blogs interesting stuff. telling someone to ‘grow up’ is really the lamest sort of challenge. it is normally abandoned by those seeking alpha dog status by the time they are 10.
