New York, 27 Muharram 1434/10 December 2012 (Al Qassam/MINA) – Noted US political critic and academic Noam Chomsky said the US and Israel started to experience international isolation after they opposed the Palestinians’ move to upgrade its status to a UN non-member observer state.
Chomsky said that the US tried to convince Palestine to backtrack on its observer state bid, but to no avail.
The US academic expressed his belief that the international criminal court cannot take any step annoying the US administration, thus Palestine would remain after it had become an observer state a target of the hostile policies of the US and Israel because this new Palestinian status would change nothing.
He stressed that it is impossible and unrealistic to expect that positive changes and peaceful solutions would happen in the Middle East after this UN recognition.
The UN thinker also opined that the European attitude regarding the Palestinian file is passive and shy, and stressed the need for stronger European position in the international arena in order for Palestine to become an independent state. (T/R-022/R-006)
