According to SF Gate, CNN’s public relations department spent this week promoting a special week-long series on the rise of anti-Semitism across Europe.
Unfortunately, the PR push took place at the exact same time one of its contributors, Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill, called for an armed Palestinian “resistance” against Israel.
Here’s his closing statement:
CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill calls for the elimination of the State of Israel.
He says that "justice requires" a "free Palestine – from the river to the sea."
Will CNN allow this extreme, anti-Semitic opinion back on air?

In addition to his comment, Hill used a known Hamas rallying cry calling for the destruction of the Jewish State during a speech at the United Nations. On Thursday, Hill was fired over the issue.
