Chomsky: Hillary Clinton Fears BDS Because It Counters Decades of U.S. Support for Israeli Aggression
Democracy Now! spoke with world-renowned political dissident Noam Chomsky about where the Democratic presidential candidates stand on the issue of Israel and the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement, or BDS.
"Boycott and sanctions make perfectly good sense when these tactics are properly applied, as they often are," Chomsky said. "You can understand why Hillary Clinton is frightened of them. They might undermine the policy of her husband and his predecessors, and Obama, as well, to support Israeli violence and aggression."
