The Washington Free Beacon confirmed with a separate source that Hill had been terminated that day.
He bravely called for political support for the occupied Palestinian people against their oppressors, until the systematic miseries of oppression and discrimination visited upon the caged population over the 70 years plus, are over. "No amount of debate will change what I actually said or what I meant".
Hill tweeted: "My reference to "river to the sea" was not a call to destroy anything or anyone".
"J$3 ustice requires ... a free Palestine from the river to the sea", he told a United Nations panel, a slogan associated with the Palestine Liberation Organization and the US -designated terrorist group Hamas.
Hill's apparent call for Jewish genocide shocked Jewish journalists like Commentary's Seth Mandel. The world rejoiced as the elusive two-state solution finally seemed inevitable.
South Africa, Dirco said, remains concerned and condemns the continued illegal settlement expansion by Israel, which constitutes a contravention of worldwide law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.
The AU Commission would work tirelessly with the International Community to ensure the establishment of an independent Palestinian State on the borders of June 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital, the statement stated. Later the document states, "Hamas rejects any alternative to the full and complete liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea".
In the one-state reality that exists today, the Israeli government is the primary authority in charge. "It was a call for justice, both in Israel and in the West Bank/Gaza", he continued. The conflict lasted for 34 days and claimed the lives of more than 1,300 people before being halted by a UN-brokered ceasefire.
Marc Lamont Hill has been fired from his job after giving a speech critical of Israel's policies toward Palestine at the United Nations. That same statement went out to multiple other outlets, although it was unclear at first when he had been dropped-an IQ Media search showed he hadn't been on the network since September.
"The global community can not continue to decry the violation of Palestinian rights and destruction of the two-state solution without acting to end this unlawful situation", Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian UN ambassador, said on Thursday.
The damage wasn't just done to Hill's reputation and career - it goes far beyond that.
CNN's decision to fire Hill, nonetheless, is not surprising. It contributes to an already suffocating environment in which commentators avoid speaking honestly about Israel's abuse of Palestinians because it is so frequently punished in a variety of ways. "This day should demand actions that will re-instate the role of the United Nations as an worldwide institution who's mission is to realize peace and justice", states the coordinator of the political parties in the Ramallah district, who read out a letter written to the UN secretary General, then presented it to the Representative at the UN Office in Ramallah.
