    MY COMMENT: Well, let’s just say there are entries and then there are entries, if you get my drift. All entries are equal, but some entries are more equal than others.

    MINISTRIES OF THE INTERIOR AND DEFENSE*: “It’s close enough for government work!”

  2. canada bans galloway

    england bans savage

    america bans cat stevens

    democracies do have the right to ban individuals from entering the country

    and you have the right to protest these bans

    1. Israel wasn’t banning him from entering ISRAEL. They were banning him from entering Palestine, which is not their country & which they have no right to do unles they wish to annex the W. Bank & declare it their country.

  3. What else could be expected from Eli Yishai? There wasn’t a Shas term in the Interior Ministry without some scandal. Eli Yishai has a policy and he carries it out until court says otherwise, which it should have done long ago.

  4. “But if you are obsessed with the persecution of “dangerous ideas” and constantly searching for ideological menaces, then Chomsky is a threat. In this context, not allowing him to enter your country might be logical…but it is also scary is hell.”

    Very true ! But how does this compare to the banning of Geert Wilders from Britain ? Wilders is a good example of “dangerous ideas” and “ideological menaces” but in his case I don’t recall that the progressive forces in Britain were worried about issues such as free speech.
