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.

Speech:

  • Noam Chomsky, Professor of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
