It is Not in Iran's Nature to be Subjugated: Chomsky


Current Israeli regime so much worse than the former apartheid regime in South Africa.


May 26, 2010 (Hamsayeh.Net) - International scholar and linguist Noam Chomsky who last week was denied entry into the occupied West Bank by Israeli border guards said efforts by the United States to subjugate Iran would prove to be futile.


Speaking in Beirut, Chomsky said it is not in Iran’s nature or history to be bossed around like some other American client states. He said, ‘Iran does not follow orders. It has a long history of pursuing its own sovereignty.’ Chomsky delivered his speech on the occasion of Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon at the turn of this century.


The prominent international analyst said Israel and the former apartheid regime in South Africa have too many things in common. According to him the apartheid regime in South Africa was actually a notch more humane than Israel today for during the apartheid era, no one prevented white South Africans from supporting black natives.


‘Israel does not need the Palestinians. It doesn't want them. If they wither away like the leaves of autumn the way that the native Americans did, that is fine. They go somewhere else that is fine. But, they don't take any responsibility for them and they don't need them. So it's much worse than apartheid,’ he said.

Chomsky himself Jewish, was denied entry into Israeli occupied West Bank last Monday as he was to deliver a lecture at a local university. Israeli border guards told him they don’t like what he says about Israel. Chomsky was held several hours in detention before being allowed to go back to Jordan.
