"Support for Israel had become so ingrained and fear of anti-Semitism
so deeply embedded in the psyche of American Jewish Leftists in the
aftermath of World War 2,  that if the Jewish state was to be
criticized it had to be by someone from within the tribe who
unequivocally supported its existence.  Unfortunately, to the
detriment of the Palestinians and the building of a viable Palestinian
solidarity movement within the United States, that mindset persists to
this day and largely explains why Chomsky maintains his reputation
despite public utterances over the past half dozen years that have
done more to undermine the Palestinian cause than to help it."

mægen lytlað."
