  • Noam Chomsky v. Alan Dershowitz: A Debate on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

    Chomskydershowitz

    We bring you a debate between Noam Chomsky and Alan Dershowtiz on the question, "Israel and Palestine After Disengagement: Where Do We Go From Here?" Dershowitz argued for a political solution based on an Israeli withdrawal from Palestinian towns and a mobile security fence to protect Israel’s borders, while Chomsky insisted that the main obstacle to peace in the region is U.S.-Israeli insistence on maintaining settlements and rejecting minimal Palestinian rights. They faced off at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government last month. [includes rush transcript]
