Chomsky Warns of the Rise of ‘Judeo-Nazi Tendencies’ in Israel

November 12, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –   Prominent Jewish intellectual Noam Chomsky has raised concerns over what he believes is the rise of “Judeo-Nazi tendencies” in Israel. Speaking to i24NEWS last week, the renowned political dissident, linguist and scholar repeated warnings given by Yeshayahu Leibowitz, an Israeli public intellectual, biochemist and polymath, concerning the dehumanising effect of Israel’s brutal occupation of Palestine on the victims and the oppressors.

The former MIT linguist said that being critical of the occupation in Israel today means being labelled a traitor,
