Operation Protective Edge, Israel`s most recent assault on Gaza, left thousands of Palestinians dead and cleared the way for another Israeli land grab. The need to stand in solidarity with Palestinians has never been greater. Ilan Pappé and Noam Chomsky, two leading voices in the struggle to liberate Palestine, discuss the road ahead for Palestinians and how the international community can pressure Israel to end its human rights abuses against the people of Palestine. On Palestine is the sequel to their acclaimed book Gaza in Crisis.

Avram Noam Chomsky (often transcribed as Chomsky or Chomsky, English Avram Noam Chomsky - Avram Noam Chomsky; December 7, 1928, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA) - American linguist, political publicist and theorist. Institutional professor of linguistics at MIT, author of a classification of formal languages ​​called the Chomsky hierarchy. His work on generative grammars contributed significantly to the decline of behaviorism and contributed to the development of the cognitive sciences. In addition to his linguistic work, Chomsky is widely known for his radical left political views, as well as criticism of the foreign policy of US governments. Chomsky himself calls himself a libertarian socialist and supporter of anarcho-syndicalism. Noam Chomsky was born in 1928 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to a Jewish family. His parents - the famous Hebraist, Professor William Chomsky (1896-1977) and Elsie Simonovskaya - immigrants from the Russian Empire. His parents` first language was Yiddish, but the family did not speak it. [1] Since 1945, Noam Chomsky has studied philosophy and linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania. One of his teachers was a professor of linguistics, Zellig Harris. It was he who advised Chomsky to draw up a systematic structure of any language. [2] Harris`s political views also had a strong influence on Chomsky. In 1949, Chomsky married Carol Schatz, with whom he had three children. They remained married until her death in 2008. [3] Chomsky received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1955, but four years before that he had done most of his research at Harvard University. [4] In his doctoral dissertation, he began to develop some of his linguistic ideas, which he later revealed in more detail in his 1957 book "Syntactic Structures". In 1955, Chomsky received an offer from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he began teaching linguistics in 1961. It was during this time that he became involved in politics, since about 1964, publicly speaking out against US participation in the Vietnam War. In 1969, Chomsky published an essay on the Vietnam War, American Power and the New Mandarins. Since that time, Chomsky has become widely known for his political views, speeches and several other books on the topic. His views, most often classified as libertarian socialism, have earned him both widespread support among the left and many critics from all areas of the political spectrum. Despite being involved in politics, Chomsky continues to pursue linguistics and teaching. The New York Times Book Review once wrote: “In terms of the energy, scope, novelty, and influence of his ideas, Noam Chomsky is perhaps the most important intellectual living today” (however, as Chomsky ironically noted, later in this article complains that his political work, which often accuses The New York Times of distorting the facts, is “maddening with ingenuity”). According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index, between 1980 and 1992, Chomsky was the most cited living scholar and the eighth most frequently cited source in general.
