      Noam Chomsky: Radical Deceiver?
      by Mark Green - markgreen @ flashpoint-tv.net
      July 28, 2005

      Noam Chomsky has finally 'outed' himself as a key defender of
      segregation and war, as long as it serves Israel.

      Here's the wise Professor's revealed methodology: beat the neo-
      Marxist drum, ignore non-conforming facts, publish another long,
      windy book, and blow smoke. True to form, his latest expose on the
      "hidden reasons" behind America's latest war on Iraq fails to even
      mention the U.S.-Israeli "special relationship", or the essential
      role played by highly placed Zionists in shaping U.S. war policies.
      For him, the world's doom and gloom is always and forever about "U.S.
      imperialism"--even within the Israeli-dominated Middle East. In
      Chomsky's steady-state universe, America is the rapacious master,
      Israel our hapless servant.

      Noam Chomsky does correctly note that the entire basis for the latest
      U.S. war on Iraq (non-existent WMD's, links to Al Queda, quest for
      uranium, etc.) was a deliberate fabrication, but his sins of omission
      from there are too great to ignore.

      The Professor's latest summation ("It's the Imperialism, Stupid") is
      a classic example of 'Zionist Denial'--the widespread but dishonest
      brand of political scholarship that cynically deconstructs every
      political institution, lobby, spin doctor, motive and manipulator
      except those with a Zionist pedigree. Thus, for Chomsky, if every
      dirty political trick in the world cannot be traced directly to the
      CIA, then proceed directly to Step Two: search every corporate board
      room and find the culprits there.

      Prof. Chomsky's latest Grand Theory about U.S. war in Iraq can be
      found here:


      But trust me, you can skip it. If there's even one idea there that
      hasn't already appeared in one of his previous essays, I didn't spot

      The Professor speaks with forked tongue

      Besides covering up for Israel's longstanding devotion to ethnic and
      religious segregation, Chomsky and his disciples have been pushing
      the "No War for Oil" myth since the 1990-91 Gulf War, even though
      their predictions continually fail and their theories never explain.
      Please recall that in 1990, Bush Sr. gathered and lead an
      international coalition into Kuwait (know as the Gulf War) to end
      Saddam Hussein's "illegal occupation". OK, this certainly wasn't the
      President's only reason (or even his main one) for launching the Gulf
      War, but Chomsky and his Zionist-friendly cronies can't resist the
      opportunity to manufacture an even bolder fib, indignantly declaring
      that this first U.S. invasion was launched so "imperial" America and
      its corporations could "seize Kuwait's oil".

      It was a provocative and cynical theory, not completely untrue, but
      deliberately incomplete and therefore false.

      Consider the actual events of the original Gulf War, a brief military
      rout which ended in complete Allied victory in Feb., 1991. Within
      months of the Iraqi army's abject annihilation and humiliating
      retreat from Kuwait, the bulk of U.S. forces DID LEAVE Kuwait and NOT
      OIL. Chomsky and his acolytes were wrong. Following that much
      ballyhooed victory and throughout President Clinton's subsequent
      eight-year economic blockade on Iraq, NEVER once did any U.S.
      corporation siphon off Iraqi oil or benefit economically from the
      lethal "oil for food" program that was administered in Iraq through
      the United Nations under American auspices. The 'war-for-oil'
      theorists were wrong still. This is not to say that the U.S. has
      behaved virtuously, or even fairly. Indeed, what DID happen in Iraq
      were the needless deaths of some 500,000 Iraqis from malnourishment
      and disease due to U.S. sanctions. Significantly, Chomsky has never
      produced one document proving (or even linking) America's two wars on
      Iraq with corporate oil interests or their unseen lobby. Israel's
      strategically positioned lobbyists however DID enthusiastically favor
      both Iraq wars, as well as the deadly sanctions applied under Pres.

      Additionally, over American protests, Israel has for the past decade
      initiated the construction of countless 'Jewish Only' housing units
      in occupied Palestine. True to form, Chomsky attributes Israeli
      expansion and brutality to American coercion. Translation: Israeli
      malfeasance "understandable", therefore Zionist crimes forgivable;
      but American motives "greedy", therefore U.S. actions evil. Does
      Prof. Chomsky actually believe this stuff? Only his Rabbi knows for

      The unpleasant truth is that if American aggression is 'all about
      anything', it's all about Israeli power and security.

      Indeed, the only winners in America's first war on Iraq (the Gulf
      War) were the Kuwaiti royals, U.S. arms manufacturers and, as always,
      the ever-expanding Jewish State. What's clear is that the old
      Professor has a special place in his deceiving heart for the Zionist
      dream of a Jewish country unchallenged in militarily power and
      unencumbered by non-Jewish inhabitants.

      Indeed, the 1990 rescue of Kuwait's plutocracy cost the U.S. taxpayer
      untold billions and left Iraq decimated, demoralized and disgraced.
      At the close of the Gulf War, the Iraqi death toll at the hands of
      U.S. bombing sorties may have reached 100,000, which is over thirty
      times the number of Americans killed on 911. Additionally, following
      the first Gulf War, Iraq slid into deep economic and cultural
      DEPRESSION. Please keep in mind that our special ally, Israel, still
      maintains an uninterrupted, illegal 38-year-old military occupation
      in Palestine, which is only a stone's throw from Iraq. Israel also
      and receives not only unprecedented levels of U.S AID but unwavering
      U.S. DIPLOMATIC COVER. The Jewish State has also managed to assemble
      a nuclear stockpile without so much as a peep of protest from the
      U.S. Our news media is similarly accommodating on this crucial issue.

      Heartfelt Tribute

      Unbeknownst to most Americans, our leaders like Israel more than one
      might expect. Consider these adoring remarks made by California
      Democrat and Minority Whip Nancy Pelosi. In her recent speech before
      Israel's preeminent lobby group, the American-Israel Political Action
      Committee (AIPAC), she declared: "America's commitment to the safety
      and security of the State of Israel is unwavering. America and Israel
      share an unbreakable bond: in peace and war; and in prosperity and in

      Without blushing, Pelosi closed with these somber remarks: "The
      United States will stand with Israel now and forever. Now and forever."

      Thunderous applause followed from a packed audience that was
      virtually all Jewish.

      Yet incredibly, AIPAC is presently under federal investigation for
      espionage against the United States!

      No matter. Our political class understands all too well who rules our
      great republic and who therefore must be glorified and adored. As for
      Zionist Israel's countless victims, Pelosi uttered not a word.

      With this everyday embarrassment as a backdrop, Noam Chomsky has
      risen to the status of Grand Ayatollah of politically-correct
      American dissent.

      During the Viet Nam War, Chomsky's brand of trendy radicalism enjoyed
      great prestige. Without embarrassment, he confidently explained away
      that region's turmoil largely to Western Imperialism while, at the
      same time, avoiding the unpleasant details about murder, deceit and
      oppression which are the hallmark of life under communist rule.
      Today, Chomsky prefers accord privilege to Israel's uniqe brand of
      political sins and condone the racist component within Zionism that
      legitimizes a segregated, Jewish State in a land hitherto occupied by

      Israeli "neutrality"

      Please recall that even though Israel pretended not to have any
      involvement with America's vast international coalition in the
      1990-91 Gulf War, the Iraqis knew otherwise and sent their few
      remaining scud missiles into Israel to demonstrate their
      understanding that this needless bloodbath centered around Zionist
      ambitions--not some phony oil conspiracy or the liberation of an
      obscure Arab Sheikdom.

      This is where the role of deception becomes critical. Many Americans
      now realize that just before our country's invasion of Iraq, there
      were the now famous (but discredited) claims about Iraq's links to
      All Things Evil--not to mention its real threat to world freedom and
      democracy. But who remembers the grotesque yarn about Kuwaiti babies
      being disconnected from their feeding tubes in hospital incubators by
      invading Iraqis? It was all part of the pre-war hype that turned out
      to be a slick, neo-conservative war advertisement.

      For those who believed that Iraq's invasion of Kuwait posed a threat
      to world oil supplies, Hussein himself succinctly addressed that
      unfounded fear well before Bush Sr's. invasion. Concerning the
      widespread misapprehension about Iraq's "controlling the world's oil
      resources", Saddam Hussein contemptuously posed this question: "What
      do you expect me to do with the (disputed) oil, drink it?" Pleases
      note that the U.S. is now some $300 billion in the red over just this
      most-recent Iraq bloodbath. How much Iraqi oil will America have to
      steal just to break even? The Chomsky crowd never says.

      Indeed, Iraq's invasion of Kuwait never posed any genuine threat to
      global oil supplies. Oil remained relatively cheap throughout the
      ensuing Gulf War and for ten years after. These two Arab governments
      were merely fighting over who would bring this precious commodity to

      But when Iraq invaded Kuwait (with the implied consent, thought
      Saddam Hussein, of high U.S. officials) our Israel-friendly political
      establishment shrewdly seized an opportunity to humiliate the Jewish
      State's key Arab rival. Foolishly, Hussein took the bait. When
      America unexpectedly threatened to wage war over Kuwait, the Iraqi
      dictator refused to back down. It was Hussein's pride that became his
      undoing. Finally, in hopes of averting the war, Hussein freed some
      200 American tourists in a futile peace gesture. But it didn't help.
      The war dogs were determined to unleash a campaign of non-stop
      bombing that the world had never seen.

      During the final negotiations prior to the first U.S. invasion of
      Iraq, the Iraqi dictator offered to withdraw from Kuwait if Israel
      would do the same in Palestine. American officials dismissed this
      peace overture as a "non-starter". The American news media eagerly
      followed suit, dropping the entire episode deep into a political
      memory hole. That peace overture, like Hussein's release of the
      Western hostages, it is now only dimly recalled. The Gulf War
      produced a high-tech military execution which left tens of thousands
      of Iraqi dead, with an even greater number of Iraqi families in

      In the 43 days it took the U.S. coalition to crush Iraqi resistance,
      some 88,500 tons of bombs fell on Iraq. It was the greatest five week
      bombing campaign in world history. By contrast, the legendary, eight-
      month-long "bombing blitz" by Nazi Germany at the start of WWII
      lobbed only 24,000 tons of bombs on all of London. That Pres. Bush
      Sr.'s popularity reached its zenith following America's lopsided
      military 'victory' over Iraq may be more a testament to the power of
      orchestrated pro-war reporting than to heroism on the battlefield.

      The war-for-oil theory was then, and remains today, part of a Left-
      Zionist smokescreen which falsely identifies the "hidden"
      machinations behind continued U.S. aggression towards the Arab (and
      Persian) world. If it's "all about oil", then why is America now
      threatening to invade even Syria, a NON-oil exporting country?
      Chomsky doesn't say. The good news is that the world still has some
      two trillion barrels of known oil reserves. Despite the ongoing oil
      hype, we're not about to run out of petroleum.

      What is hard to deny is that U.S. policies unflinchingly sustain the
      modern (unstated) doctrine of selective enforcement of U.N.
      resolutions. Its essence: Israel--with key American support--remains
      uniquely above international law. And to advance this 'value', our
      ruling establishment will steadfastly wage war. It's no wonder that
      the U.S. and Israel now rank among most feared and disliked countries
      in the world.

      Meanwhile, the Chomskyists are determined to keep Americans from
      critically examining the Zionist role in these needless wars. They
      are succeeding so far because they have legions of highly-placed
      allies who are committed to dusting the fingerprints off any Zionist-
      engineered boondoggle. For this Grand Illusion we also have our
      mainstream news media to thank.

      American democracy has failed to provide its citizens with a clear
      choice on this vital issue concerning unconditional support for
      Israel. Our Mid East po licies remain in the hands of lobbyists,
      Party bosses and special interests who operate far above the will or
      consent of American voters. Sadly, this nation's marriage to the
      Jewish State was conducted in the dark decades ago without even the
      benefit of a public ceremony. Big money and big weapons systems have
      been changing hands ever since.

      As the causalities mount and resistance builds, it's worth
      remembering that it's not too late for America to change course.
