Leftist MP Uses Leftist Friend of Holocaust Deniers to Prove He Isn’t Anti-Semitic

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


You know you’re citing Noam Chomsky as proof that you aren’t anti-Semitic. Not only is Chomsky entirely disinterested in the question of anti-Jewish Racism, but he’s a friend and supporter of Holocaust denier Roger Garaudy. Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson used Chomsky’s essay in the introduction to his book. Chomsky even signed a petition in support of Faurisson describing his “extensive historical research into the “Holocaust” question” alongside prominent Holocaust deniers.

Chomsky wrote that he saw no anti-Semitic implications in Holocaust Denial. So it’s safe to say that Chomsky claiming that he sees no anti-Semitic implications in something is the worst possible endorsement.

Virulent Israel-basher Noam Chomsky has lent his support to British MEP David Ward who has come under intense fire for comparing Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians to the Nazis’ treatment of the Jews during the Holocaust.

Ward, a member of the Liberal Democrats, has incurred the wrath of the pro-Israel community after he said on International Holocaust Memorial Day last month that he was “saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could, within a few years of liberation, be inflicting atrocities on the Palestinians in the new State of Israel — and continue to do so.”

Chomsky, a professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one of Israel’s most vocal critics, said he agreed there was “nothing remotely anti-Semitic in his remarks, which are in fact familiar in Israeli discussions”,

Well that’s great then. That puts Ward on the same level as all the Holocaust deniers that Chomsky has defended against accusations of anti-Semitism.

    Chomsky co-authored a book called AFTER THE CATACLYSM in which he minimized and dismissed the mass murder committed by Pol Pot in Cambodia. That was Chomsky's own action a denier. It ties in well with his defense of other Holocaust deniers. http://www.jochnowitz.net/Essays/ExtremistPolReg….

      Chomsky was a fan of Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, Khomeini, etc ad nauseum.

      He doesn't have a good record when it comes to mass murdering tyrants. In fact, if Chomsky supports a regime you can safely bet that any civilized person should be on the other side.

        one has to wonder where chumpsky got his brain washed. Whose purple koolaid did he drink?

  • Gee

    Here we have a man that announces that history is whatever he declares it to be (Chomsky) that is well known for aiding and abetting racists supporting a British MP. That proves that MP Ward must also be a racist.

    Noam Chomsky is a self-hating Jew (and self-hating American).

      Mary Sue, it generally turns out that self hating Jews ARE anti-American too. A devotion to leftism is a fealty to totalitarian thought processes, which obviates the attachment one would feel for the Jewish NATIONAL homeland. As such, leftists abhor nationalism which obviates their global collective.

      In any case, they are fellow travelers and they brook NO dissent, and they march in lock step with the most radical forces on earth, most especially of the red and green hue – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/01/leftist-dogma

    "That puts Ward on the same level as all the Holocaust deniers that Chomsky has defended against accusations of anti-Semitism."

    Correct. They're from the "Delusional Psychotic Community."

    Six years before I was born Hitler was still slaughtering the Jewish people, my German relatives, some of whom were soldiers told me about the reality of the Holocaust. How is it that people like Chomsky are even listened to? Evil loves these revisionist leftist enablers, because it tries to pave the way for more slaughter. I always wondered who was persecuting the Jews all through history and came to the conclusion that it is Satan. Lefties, you are in very deep trouble with the God of Creation.

      Chumpsky lives in a dream world, either a construct of his own mind for some reason, or he listened to someone who wove it for him and he accepted it uncritically for some reason.
