MK Yuli Edelstein, minister of Diaspora affairs and Public Diplomacy, said he 'despises' what ultra-leftist MIT professor Noam Chomsky says and thinks and that Chomsky has "no moral grounds."

MK Edelstein spoke with Arutz Sheva TV about the decision to block Chomsky's entry into Israel and the multi-faceted war by Israeli 'hasbara' (public relations and information effort) against the de-legitimization of Israel.
