DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:30 A.M)- CNN announced the termination of their contract with an American scholar, this Thursday, following a speech delivered – by the scholar – before the United Nations.

Prominent scholar and activist, Marc Lamont Hill, has been fired from CNN. The move by CNN, came following a speech delivered by the scholar before the United Nations. The speech, delivered on the 70th anniversary of the declaration of Human Rights, slammed Israel’s illegal mistreatment of the Palestinian people.

In the speech, Marc Lamont Hill called for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea”. The speech prompted an immediate backlash from pro-Israel advocates. The scholar was subjected to abuse online and the allegation of anti-semitism.

Marc Lamont Hill quickly took to his twitter account, refuting what he called “silly” and “absurd” allegations, stating that he “I have spent my life fighting these things”.

CNN has been accused of denying Marc Lamont Hill his freedom of speech. A network that spends most of its airtime attacking the US President and his policy, has been questioned as to why criticism of another countries policy is not acceptable.

Wonderful presentation by this man who was “martyred” by CNN for speaking the truth. May his speech gain great traction and cause profound protests in the U.S. and elsewhere over the hideous subhuman treatment to Palestinians by the Israeli govt.

If it had been any other country on the planet this would not of even got out of the room,mention israel and thats it, hes a nazi, hes a supporter of hamas,he must now be ostracized and lose his job! This is the reality that is being forced on the world, just like in germany during the time of the nazis you are being conditioned to accept what they do and to not see the hypocracy and unfairness of it all. These instances are the warning signs that they say were ignored before world war 2, lets hope that the… Read more »

Very astute observation. Those who challenge the narrative are being destroyed by economic means. Zionism was born out of nationalism, ditto for Germany’s Nazi party. We are seeing a revival of Nationalism in India and Turkey also.

In USA (the Greatest so called Democracy), over 75% of the National Medias are owned by 7 (SEVEN) companies. What’s more interesting is 6 out of 7 those companies are owned by Khazars (called “Jewish” nowadays). NO COMMENTS!

From the river [Jordan] to the [Mediterranean] sea = destruction of Israel…
😉
But the guy does ignores that 77% of Palestine is Jordan…
King Hussein massacred 27,000 so-called Palestinians when Arafat tried to overthrow the state in 1970-1971… How funny, nobody makes a fuss about it while IDF is nowhere near such a score after 51 years…
They should have sent back ‘Palis’ to their countries of origin immediately in 1967… 3 generations later makes mattes way more complicated…
