The Israeli war-machine continues to mercilessly pound Gaza into submission despite the ceasefire. Longtime critic of the American Imperial Project, Noam Chomsky, provides the necessary political and historical context to understand the US-Israeli onslaught on the people of Gaza and suggests a new way forward in the struggle for Palestinian self-determination. Noam Chomsky spoke at the Palestine Cultural Center for Peace in Boston on 1/21/09. Filmed by Paul Hubbard. Available on Youtube.
