Noam Chomsky urges Europe role in Mideast

Without intervention by Europe, which could use its political and economic weight, the talks probably will not amount to much, Chomsky told reporters and guests at the Geneva Press Club, in a visit sponsored by the Swiss foreign ministry. But if Europe broke from American policies supporting Israel, he said, that could swing momentum toward a breakthrough.
