Chomsky’s Latest Gasser: Israel is US military base
Renowned American sociopolitical analyst Noam Chomsky says Israel functions as Washington’s main weapons storage base in the Middle East.
“Israel is essentially a US military base, the US positions weapons there, that’s a very close military and intelligence tie,” the Jewish academic told Press TV on Wednesday while explaining the complexity of relations between Washington and Tel Aviv.
Commenting on the weapons that Israel received from the US before launching its 2007-2008 offensive in the Gaza Strip, Chomsky said that the exchange of weapons between the two sides was not surprising.
“[Israel] is receiving weapons constantly. In fact, weapons were sent during the invasion of Gaza. They tried to send them, they were supposed to send them from Greece, and Greece refused to ship them,” he said.
“When pentagon was asked about this, they responded (I think correctly) that the weapons were not being sent for the Gaza invasion which was underway with the US weapons of course; rather, the US was positioning weapons in Israel,” he added.

P.S. This is quite a gasser. It’s right up there with “it doesn’t matter who did 9/11.” If you’re thinking Chomsky would ever say that Israel is the boss of America, or that jews run America, you don’t know Chomsky.
Look for Chomsky disciple Finkelstein to add “Israel Is a US Military Base” to his repertoire of hits on his traveling zionist peace show which includes such well worn out hits like “It’s Ludicrous to ask for the dismantling great countries like Israel and the USA, just have them live up to their founding principles.” The lyrics of this last hit include a litany of US crimes…not done on Israel’s behalf of course.
Oh, and at his traveling zionist peace shows, Finkelstein doesn’t like mentioning or talking about zionism. But for a real laugh, ask him about it anyway.
Finkelstein’s traveling zionist peace show can be seen at university campuses across the country. Suggested attire is rose colored glasses.
