Tlaib Slams CNN For Firing Marc Lamont Hill

United Nations,US,Hamas

"The NGO called on Israel to allow those injured out of the blockaded strip for necessary treatment and for governments to offer their medical facilities for the wounded", AFP reported.

The European Union has put Hamas on its blacklist of terror groups, but the 28-nation bloc has struggled to come up with a united position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Hill's apparent call for Jewish genocide shocked Jewish journalists like Commentary's Seth Mandel. What people like Marc Lamont Hill object to isn't the one-state reality that Israel imposed on the land, but the discriminatory nature of that state. But this is no more a destruction of Israel, as some claim, than the end of Jim Crow segregation in the United States was the destruction of America. "He was an invited guest".

Besides the "river to sea" comment, critics also found fault with Hill's comparison of the Israel-Palestine situation to the U.S.' civil rights fight. "The only applause for any speaker". Battle lines were quickly drawn over Hill's termination, with CNN finding itself in the crossfire.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a nonprofit that works to combat global anti-Semitism, praised CNN for its reporting on anti-Semitism in Europe and for terminating Hill, but he said it would be "appropriate and helpful" for CNN to be explicit about what merited the firing. He dismissed the assertion that he was calling for the eradication of Israel as "absurd". No part of this is a call to destroy Israel. It's absurd on its face. "I was very clear in my comments about desiring freedom, justice, and self-determination for EVERYONE". This is not an anti-Semitic position...

Ashrawi called on the global community "to take immediate steps to hold Israel accountable for its persistent and willful violations and urged them to effectively adopt policies and laws that unequivocally ban the support of and/or profiteering from the illegal Israeli settler-colonial regime of occupation in Palestine, especially in Jerusalem". This does not have to be, nor should it be, the case.

"Professor Hill, like all morally decent people, opposes apartheid". Hill rejects that interpretation of his statement and says the full meaning of his speech is a call for justice throughout the Middle East, yet due to accusations of anti-semitism the Temple University Professor has now been relieved of his contract with the major media outlet.

"However", added Lausch, "we acknowledge that he has a constitutionally protected right to express his opinion as a private citizen". Mo is also a Blues musician.
