American Professor Noam Chomsky held a meeting on Friday with a senior official of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah party, and discussed several issues regarding the Middle East conflict, Israel and the United States policies. Chomsky, an American linguist, philosopher, political activist and a cognitive scientist, said during the meeting that the Israeli war against Lebanon in 2006 came under an American decision in this regard.
Chomsky met with Nabil Qaouk, a senior Hezbollah official in charge of the party in southern Lebanon.
He said that he fears that the Zionist-Christian movement and the Zionist Lobby in the United States are having a bigger effect on U.S polices.
Chomsky tried to visit Palestine several days ago but Israel held him at the al-Karama Border Crossing with Jordan, and deported him to Amman.
Qaouk said that the U.S. weapons sent to Israel are the source of danger in the region, and that Israelâ€™s ongoing threats are causing further tensions in the region.
He added that the American stances and polices against the party are based on Israelâ€™s stances and its interests.
The Hezbollah official further stated the fighters will remain ready and alert against any possible aggression or escalation.
