What lite looks like

"Blog post: I'm baffled by Noam Chomsky's contradictions on Palestine":
"In his 17 May interview on Democracy Now he told Amy Goodman that his planned itinerary included a meeting with Salam Fayyad, the unelected US- and Israeli-backed "prime minister" of the Ramallah Palestinian Authority imposed after the US helped overthrow the Hamas-led 'national unity government' that came after the 2006 election. Chomsky told Goodman:

I was going to meet with the Prime Minister [Fayyad]. Unfortunately, I couldn’t. But his office called me here in Amman this morning, and we had a long discussion.

He is pursuing policies, which, in my view, are quite sensible, policies of essentially developing facts on the ground. It’s almost - I think it’s probably a conscious imitation of the early Zionist policies, establishing facts on the ground and hoping that the political forms that follow will be determined by them. And the policies sound to me like sensible and sound ones. The question, of course, is whether - the extent to which Israel and the United States, which is a determining factor - the extent to which they’ll permit them to be implemented. But if implemented, and if, of course, Israel and the United States would terminate their systematic effort to separate Gaza from the West Bank, which is quite illegal, if that continues, yes, it could turn into a viable Palestinian state.

Really? Chomsky the great critic of US efforts to undermine democracy and impose its clients around the world is now effusively endorsing what is in effect a US-backed puppet regime?"

Note how the Jew-controlled media is crafting Salam Fayyad as the new 'reasonable guy', the 'guy we can talk to', years of collaboration having worn out the old 'reasonable guy', Mahmoud Abbas. Noam's endorsement of the new collaborator is exactly what we'd expect to see from a rabid Zionist looking for the new guy to sell out the Palestinians.
