COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

“Noam Chomsky: Antifa is a gift to the far right and US state repression”

I think that may well be right, Mr. Chomsky.

But the truth is that the situation with Antifa closely parallels your own.

Your long-standing position in America effectively supports the terrible abuse and oppression of Palestinians by Israel.

That ghastly situation in the Mideast is an American imperial creation, but your brand of criticism from the left leaves it untouched as though it were something entirely unrelated to the America you so readily criticize for so many other things.

And your position effectively supports the horrible Neocon wars raging through the Mideast, all of them having to do with reshaping the Mideast to accommodate Israel, wars having killed a couple of million and made hopeless refugees of millions more.

No wonder you understand Antifa so well.
