Since publishing this interview, it was brought to our attention that the text published by Yeni Şafak was incorrect. As such, subsequent translations of the article by As Sabeel (from Turkish to Arabic) and then by us (from Arabic to English) were also incorrect.
We apologise to our readers and to Prof Noam Chomsky.
For your reference, below is the statement made on Noam Chomsky’s Facebook page
Chomsky.info would like to let readers know that an interview with Professor Chomsky published by Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak on August 26 contains fabrications and is not an accurate or faithful translation of Professor Chomsky’s written responses to questions he was emailed for the interview. The original text of the interview is linked here.
