Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

This week, the situation in the West Bank erupted into what is being called the deadliest clash in the West Bank in two years. On Monday, three Palestinians were killed and at least 325 injured when riots deteriorated into exchanges of rifle fire. Fifteen Israeli soldiers also were wounded. Palestinians demonstrated at Israeli checkpoints and soldiers responded by firing teargas and rubber-coated steel bullets. Palestinians say their frustration with the slow moving peace process is fueling the unrest.

We turn now to Noam Chomsky, Professor of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He gave a speech recently at the Columbia School of Journalism in New York on state terror, the corporate media and U.S. foreign policy.
