CNN has fired news commentator Marc Lamont Hill after he endorsed the elimination of the State of Israel, backing the violent Palestinian Authority seizure of all territory from “the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea.”
“Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” a spokesperson for the cable news network said, according to Fox News.
Speaking Wednesday at the United Nations at a meeting of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People on the occasion of the so-called ‘International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,’ Hill slammed Israel for “normalizing settler colonialism.
He ended his speech by saying, “Give us a free Palestine from the river to the sea” — a stock slogan of the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and other terrorist organizations dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish State that is used to connote the conquest of the entire Land of Israel, which to this day the PA government refers to as “Palestine.”
A former lecturer at New York City’s Columbia University, and Morehouse College in Atlanta, Hill is also a professor of media studies and urban education at Temple University in Philadelphia.
His words were greeted by a round of applause.
According to Fox News, Hill poured himself some water at one point, and told participants that he had just got off a flight from “Palestine” and that he was “boycotting the Israeli water so I was unable to quench my thirst.”
