Noam Chomsky delivers a rare lecture on the US and Israel-Palestine.
How does America’s strategic alliance with Israel affect the prospects of peace in the Middle East, and why has the US been so involved in the region in the first place?
Scholar and activist Noam Chomsky considers this question and covers the causes and consequences of American foreign policy in Israel-Palestine, the factors that determine US policy; the two-state solution and other options; Palestinian rights; Arab democracy; and what we can do to influence policy decisions.
