Last week,CNN ended its relationship with commentator and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill after Hill called for “a free Palestine from the river to the sea,” among other comments regarding Israel widely seen as anti-Semitic and endorsing violence toward Israeli civilians.
“Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” a spokesperson for the network said.
This week a video has surfaced from the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights conference held on Sept. 28th where Hill accuses Israel of poising the water of the Palestinians.
“How can you romanticize nonviolence when you have a state that is at all moments waging war against you, against your bodies, poisoning your water, limiting your access to water, locking up your children, killing them?” Hill asked. “We can’t romanticize resistance.”
