All Noam Chomsky wanted to do was give a lecture at Birzeit University, but the Israeli government is being difficult about it after denying Professor Chomsky entrance into Israel.
Apparently, Israeli officials were “trying to get clearance from the Israeli Defence Forces.” Professor Chomsky is traveling with his daughter and two friends. He has never been denied entrance into Israel or had any problems in the past when giving lectures at universities. And now the IDF needs to give clearance? Something is definitely amiss!
