Noam Chomsky suggests, Christianity is a greater threat than Islam: ‘Devout Christians are saying… let’s destroy the world.’

Earlier this month, Noam Chomsky, world-renowned Leftist academic, spoke at St. Olaf College in Minnesota, as part of this year’s event for the college’s Political Awareness Committee.

During the question-and-answer portion of the event, Chomsky was asked if Islamic radicalization was caused by an Islamic set of ideas or rather U.S. foreign policy.

After dismissing the notion of attributing a set of “ideas” to any particular religion, Chomsky suggested Christianity, not Islam, should be the religion in question because unlike the Islamic world, there are Christians who want to “destroy the world.”

“I mean, Islam is like Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism,” Chomsky explained. “There’s no such thing as Islamic ideas. There are lots of different Islamic ideas. The real question we should be asking is what about Christianity? That’s something we can do [something] about. That’s the highest priority.”

“So, what are Christian ideals? Well, they vary all over the place. People in high places now claim to be devout Christians and on the basis of Christian ideals they’re saying, let’s proceed to destroy the world. I don’t know anyone in the Islamic world who’s doing that.”
