Chomsky said in an exclusive interview to Press TV that Israel “is a client state of the United States; the United States has total impunity and that is inherited by its allies and clients”.
US President Barack Obama on June 5 once again voiced unwavering support for Tel Aviv, reiterating that Washington is “decidedly more attentive” to Israel than it is to the Palestinians, Press TV reported.
“That’s what power is,” Chomsky noted, “so for example the United States itself cannot be brought before any international tribunal. The one attempt to do so, the International Court of Justice- US simply dismissed it.”
Chomsky said the US has its own definition of the term ‘international community’, which is highly subjective.
“Where the term (international community) is used in the West, the international community refers to the United States and anyone who happens to be going along with it. If the world happens to be, most of the world is opposed, they’re just not part of the international community,” Chomsky said.
