CNN analyst Marc Lamont Hill recently praised Palestinian terrorists and said that the international community should allow these terrorists to use any means necessary to destroy Israel.
Yet, even after calling for genocide against the Jews, the media is utterly silent on Hill’s comments — particularly CNN.
Hill spoke before the United Nations in New York City on November 28 and essentially called for violence against Jews by saying he believes that “Justice requires a free Palestine from the river to the sea.”
This phrase “from the river to the sea” is a catch phrase used by Palestinian terrorists who call for the annihilation of Israel.

Hill was speaking at the U.N.’s “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” an annual event where the despot-loving U.N. celebrates the Palestinian’s genocidal goals.
Hill insisted that the so-called Palestinians deserve to use any tactic they deem necessary to destroy Israel.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Contrary to western mythology, black resistance to American apartheid did not come purely through Ghandi and nonviolence. Rather, slave revolts and self-defense and tactics otherwise divergent from Dr. King or Mahatma Gandhi were equally important to preserving safety and attaining freedom. If we are to operate in true solidarity with the Palestinian people, we must allow the Palestinian people the same range of opportunity and political possibility. If we are standing in solidarity with the Palestinian people, we must recognize the right of an occupied people to defend itself. We must prioritize peace, but we must not romanticize or fetishize it. We must advocate and promote nonviolence at every opportunity, but we cannot endorse a narrow politics of respectability that shames Palestinians for resisting, for refusing to do nothing in the face of state violence and ethnic cleansing.

If you would like to see Hill’s comments for yourself — if you can stomach it — he appears at about one and a half hours into the video below:
Well, it took a bit of time, but it looks like CNN was not amused by Hill’s calls for violence. The network announced tonight that it would not be inviting Hill back on the air after his comments at the U.N.
