Noam Chomsky is a great man for many people, but not for many Iranians. He works with Khamenei’s TV, Press TV, and apparently is happy about it. Noam Chomsky is a friend of the great Howard Zinn, but is not like him. We and other Iranians think that Chomsky is a lunatic left, only too often. But why? we have a long list of facts that should be presented in this website. Actually we, i.e. part of Iranian people, are angered by Noam Chomsky and his unbelievable foolishness.
Chomsky had an dreadful interview with an Iranian website on February 27, 2010 . We don’t know why this interview has not been translated into English, but you could use of Google Translator for reading it. Chomsky said: “If the US supports the Iranians movement, it’s harmful… if the US supports the green movement, Iranians leave the movement !!! .. the US has worked with many dictators, and so the US cooperation with AN, and supporting AN, it’s as usual … the regime (propaganda) says that the US supports the green movement and the US wants to destroy Iran, and it seems true !!! … I think that Iranians voted to AN (in his first run) because the US supported Khatami and the reform in Iran !!!! ” Indeed, by this interview Chomsky showed us that he is not Howard Zinn and he lives in 30 years ago. It shows us that he and many other intellects in the US, know nothing about Iran. They surely know nothing about the religious tyranny and the results of a religious tyranny, too. This simple fact that the people who live under a tyranny, gradually make a deep hate against it and all things that are related to it, and go completely in the exact opposite direction
Chomsky wrote an article about Iran in July 2010. In The Iranian Threat he said:” The brutal clerical regime is doubtless a threat to its own people, though it does not rank particularly high in that respect in comparison to US allies in the region !!… The terrorist acts attributed to Hamas and Hezbollah pale in comparison to US-I-s-r-a-e-l-i terrorism in the same region” But Mr. Chomsky, the brutal clerical regime ranks very very high in that respect in comparison to US allies in the region. And Hamas and Hezbollah are at least as bad as their opponents. Hezbollah men help Khamenei and Basiji thugs. They are in Tehran and kill, rape, torture, and beat Iranian pro-democracy protesters in the streets. . We can see them here.
Chomsky had an another very weak interview with Radio Farda about Iran He said: “In the West, people talk rightly about Iran as a guided democracy. There are some democratic freedoms !! , but it’s under tight control. The Guardians Councils, for example, selects the candidates. But what happens in the West? In the US, for example, it’s obvious for anyone who studies the system, the candidates are selected by concentrations of private power. Elections are basically bought. So we also have a kind of guided democracy” We are not very well-informed about the US, but If the knowledge of Mr. Chomsky about the US is the same as his knowledge about Iran, we should say that we are sorry for him and all American intellects. Two decades ago Iran had a guided democracy, but in the recent years Iran jut has have a vivid brutal anti-democracy. Mr. Chomsky are you blind and could not see the bloody coup? you live in the past. You live in 30 or 20 years ago.
