Chomsky: Saudi Arabia is the “Center of Radical Islamic Extremism” Now Spreading Among Sunni Muslims

17 May 2016

As Saudi Arabia continues to fund fighting in Syria and Yemen, Noam Chomsky says it is “the center of radical Islamic extremism.” Chomsky adds that the U.S. ally is “a source of not only funding for extremist radical Islam and the jihadi outgrowths of it, but also, doctrinally, mosques, clerics and so on, schools, you know, madrassas, where you study just Qur’an, is spreading all over the huge Sunni areas from Saudi influence.”

Noam Chomsky on Syria Conflict: Cut Off the Flow of Arms & Stop Bombing to Stem the Atrocities

17 May 2016

Today, the U.S. and Russia co-chair a meeting of the 17-nation International Syria Support Group aimed at easing the five-year conflict with a death toll that has reached close to half a million people. Just last month, President Obama announced the deployment of 250 more Special Operations troops to Syria in a move that nearly doubles the official U.S. presence in the country.

Syria is only one of a number of ongoing deadly conflicts in the Middle East. Last year, a record 60 million people around the world were forced to flee their homes, becoming refugees. For more on these conflicts and the rise of ISIS, we continue our conversation with internationally renowned political dissident, linguist and author, Noam Chomsky.

The U.S. invasion of Iraq was a major reason in the development, a primary reason in the incitement of sectarian conflicts, which have now exploded into these monstrosities,” says Chomsky. He has written over 100 books, most recently, “Who Rules the World?” Chomsky is institute professor emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he’s taught for more than 50 years.

Economic uncertainty is one of the reason for the popularity of U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, just as it was for the rise of Adolph Hitler.

Poor social conditions, fear and unemployment are giving rise to the Adolph Hitler-like fascism championed by real estate billionaire Donald Trump in his bid for the United States Republican presidential nomination, renowned linguist and political analyst Noam Chomsky said in an interview.

“Fear, along with the breakdown of society during the neoliberal period,” were the reasons behind Trump’s popularity among Republicans in the U.S., Chomsky said during an interview with Alternet website. “People feel isolated, helpless, victims of powerful forces that they do not understand and cannot influence.”

Montenegro: Protesters cry No to Nato as alliance leader visits

Friday 16th October 2015

NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg was met with ­protests yesterday during his two-day visit to oversee Montenegro’s bid to join the imperialist alliance.

“We recognise the progress that this nation has made in pursuing reform, in contributing to international security, in promoting co-operation within the western Balkans,” Mr Stoltenberg told Montenegrin MPs.

“In close co-operation with Nato, Montenegro has reformed its armed forces and its intelligence services.”

But protesters rallied in the capital Podgorica with banners reading “No to Nato.” The same slogan has been sprayed on dozens of buildings throughout the city.

The government’s campaign to win support for the bid has come up against memories of Nato’s 1999 bombing of the then republic of Serbia and Montenegro in support of Kosovar separatists.

The US supports Nato membership for Montenegro but Russia opposes it.
