Noam Chomsky endorses Berkeley divestment

I would like to express my support and appreciation for the principled statement of the ASUC Senate calling for divestment from US corporations providing military technology for Israel to use in the occupied territories and in its past and possibly future invasions of Lebanon. Amnesty International has gone further, calling for a full arms embargo during Israel’s murderous attack on Gaza in January 2009, with pretexts that do not withstand a moment’s scrutiny, one of the most egregious of recent US-backed Israeli crimes.

This is a turn around for Noam Chomsky. Jeffrey Blankfort discusses here.
