Noam Chomsky explains US support for Israel

14 July

American philosopher Noam Chomsky looks back at the historical significance of US support for the State of Israel. He explains how Israel’s founding came from the British Balfour Declaration, and after WWII, the US took up the mantle as Israel’s primary supporter. Chomsky describes how the Pentagon and State Department have had differing views on Israel, and how its strategic importance to the US was cemented after the 6-Day War of 1967.
