Tuesday 4/27: Pro-Palestinian activist & Chomsky critic Jeff Blankfort

Tuesday, April 27th, 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) on http://NoLiesRadio.org, to be archived here a few hours later..

Jeff Blankfort, pro-Palestinian activist, critic of Zionism, and long-time critic of Noam Chomsky. (We will be discussing Chomsky, with whom I had a brief run-in, among other topics.) Jeff forwarded me "this link to a recent response by Ali Abumimah and myself to Gnome Chumpsky [actually the chumps are those who subscribe to his disinformation campaign.]" http://palcast.org/2010/01/1356

Bio: "Jeffrey Blankfort was raised in a Jewish non-Zionist family. He produces radio programs on three stations and has written extensively on the Middle East. He was formerly the editor of the Middle East Labor Bulletin and co-founder of the Labor Committee of the Middle East. His photographs of the Anti-Vietnam War and Black Panthers Movements have appeared in numerous books and magazines. "In February 2002, he won a lawsuit against the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which was found to have had a vast spying operation directed against American citizens opposed to Israel’s policies in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza and to the apartheid policies of the government of South Africa and passing on information to both governments." -IfAmericansKnew.org

  1. For the Chomsky file, This article has some very important viewpoints that strip away the sophistry of Chomskyism at it's philosophical bowels,
    the Chomskian reductionist language game.

  4. I interviewed Grant Smith about two years ago. His book "Foreign Agents" inspired me run for Congress on a platform of arresting unregistered agents of a foreign power. www.barrettforcongress.us/issues.htm
