Here is Chomsky on Israel, Palestine and Lebanon in a recent interview
According to a Downing Street Spokesman, uncritically parroted by the BBC "nobody could have worked harder" than Tony Blair to achieve a cessation of hostilities in the Middle East. Apparently the Prime minister was not actually on holiday in Barbados at the time, but has been working flat out trying to stop the conflict... by allowing American weapons to pass through British airports for the Israelis to use for "peaceful" bunker busting missions.
According to Seymour Hersch writing in the New Yorker... the Bush administration and (by extension the Blair Governorship) knew about and were involved in the planning of the current Israeli war against Lebanon. "“The Israelis told us it would be a cheap war with many benefits,” a U.S. government consultant with close ties to Israel said. “Why oppose it? We’ll be able to hunt down and bomb missiles, tunnels, and bunkers from the air. It would be a demo for Iran.”"

"'Global economy' is a modern Orwellian term. On the surface, it is instant financial trading, mobile phones, McDonald's, Starbucks, holidays booked on the net. Beneath this gloss, it is the globalisation of poverty, a world where most human beings never make a phone call and live on less than two dollars a day, where 6,000 children die every day from diarrhea because most have no access to clean water."
