Pro-Israel supporters are pleased that even CNN would not tolerate the recent outrageous anti-Israel comments from one of its contributors.
Speaking at the opening day of the United Nations International Day of Solidarity, CNN commentator and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill denounced Israel calling Palestine an occupied land.
"To commit to political action, grassroots action, local action and international action – that will give us what justice requires,” Hill asserted. “And that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea."
Proclaiming Justice to the Nations Founder and President Laurie Cardoza-Moore applauded CNN’s termination of Hill over his anti-Semitic remarks.
"He supports the annihilation of Jews – [basically saying], ‘Wipe the Jews out of the nation of Israel and give them Palestine,’” Cardoza-Moore pointed out. “Thank God that CNN fired him, because that is one of the most recently outrageous statements I have ever heard – next to Louis Farrakhan's comments about termites and Jews."
Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney also believes that Hill's comments are simply outrageous.
"If Palestine extends from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean [Sea] – which is [the] clear explicit meaning of that phrase – there is no Israel!” Gaffney exclaimed. “He's talking about Judenrein to use the Hitlarian phrase. He's talking about genocide."
Gaffney also appreciated the fact that CNN realized Hill's comments were even intolerable for its left-leaning audiences.
