What is on my mind is the great audience of "Liberal" -read anti-Zionists / read anti-Jewish- backers of this ignorant buffoon Marc Lamont Hill.
Mr Hill's comments-so loved by the "Minions of CNN"- are inspired by his total ignorance and swallowing in whole of revisionist history. Sadly, and regretfully this total hate filled bunch of "Hogwash" brainwashing is common among the youth -read Millennials- of America.
As Petra Marquardt-Bigman wrote in her Algemeiner article; "Yes, Marc Lamont Hill Is an Anti-Semite" from May 17th, 2017.
"Marc Lamont Hill has an impressive biography, and a record of achievements as an academic, activist and TV personality. On his own website, he describes himself as “one of the leading intellectual voices in the country.” His Facebook page has almost 72,000 followers, on Twitter he has 318,000, and on Instagram almost 87,000. So, unfortunately, it matters that he seems to have a bit of a soft spot for Palestinian terrorism."It also shows just how dangerous it is for Jews -Zionists and Israelis alike that this mans hatred and purveyor of lies is allowed to spread his intentional and unintentional message to the naive and uninformed audience.
Solidarity Demonstration” Tuesday January 14th, 2015 coordinated by Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, in Nazareth, with Hill speaks to the camera:
"We came here to Palestine to stand in love and revolutionary struggle with our brothers and sisters;
We come to a land that has been stolen by greed and destroyed by hate;
We come here, and we learn laws that have been co-signed in ink but written in the blood of the innocent, and We come to a land that has been stolen by greed and destroyed by hate;
People continue to dream and fight for freedom;"
Now regarding the use of the phrase “fighting for freedom”. Normal people who fight antisemitism usually don’t advocate solidarity with convicted terrorists like Linda Sarsours and the Women’s March feminist’s heroine Rasmea Odeh who murdered two young Israeli Jews, 21-year-old Leon Kanner of Netanya and 22-year-old Eddie Joffe.
Rasmea Odeh and her colleagues, like other Palestinian Terrorists planted a bomb inside a Supermarket on February 21st,1969 which goes against the laws of the Geneva convention and is a clear “war crime”. She was convicted and sentenced she LIED about her past to the US Immigration Authorities and was convicted of immigration fraud on November 10, 2014, by a jury in federal court in Detroit, Michigan.
Yet, despite all this information Mr Hill published an op-ed under the title “Why Every Black Activist Should Stand With Odeh” who he described as a “venerable woman” and “a Palestinian freedom fighter being railroaded for her commitment to justice,” whose story “must also be understood as a Black story. A story of global resistance to colonial power.”
“After all, as Hill emphasized, Odeh was arrested “by the Israelis in Palestine,” and, after enduring “over 20 days of vicious rape, and other physical and psychological torture,” the completely innocent “Palestinian freedom fighter” was unfairly convicted “by the Israelis in Palestine.”
Almost a year before Hill wrote his vile apologia for Odeh, William Jacobson published a thorough documentation showing that “Rasmea Odeh [was] rightly convicted of [the] Israeli supermarket bombing and US immigration fraud.” Legal Insurrection had published about two dozen additional posts on the Odeh case before Hill wrote his piece — that is to say, if Hill wanted to get information on Odeh to check the reliability of the material circulating in his activist echo chamber, he could have easily done so.” Petra Marquardt-Bigman
In ALL the comments by other brainwashed followers of the "Solidarity Demonstration in Nazareth"? NONE even made the simplest "Fact Check"
"We come to a land that has been stolen by greed and destroyed by hate;" Land stolen by "greed"?(See quote of Hamas Charter)
The one question never really answered is who stole -usurped- the land?
Isn't Nazareth the home town of Mary and Joseph the JEWISH parents of the Christian Savior? DUH? If Jesus the savior's parents were JEWISH does that not mean the land WAS JEWISH!?
Was Jesus not claimed to be a JEW and a rabbi?
And speaking of hate .....What happened to ALL the Jews who were indigenous to the land?
"We come to a land that has been stolen by greed and destroyed by hate;"
I see that the propagandists of the Nachba Society of Perpetual Losers indoctrinated him well!
From the Hamas Charter: (A US State Department designated Foreign Terrorist Organization since 1997)
"Palestine is the cause of a people who have been let down by a world (the UN Decision UNR 181 of November 1947) that fails to secure their rights and restore to them what has been usurped from them, a people whose land continues to suffer one of the worst types of occupation in this world.Wait ever hear of the UN Decision UNR 181 of November 1947? What did it say?
Palestine is a land that was seized by a racist, anti-human and colonial Zionist project that was founded on a false promise (the (1917) Balfour Declaration), on recognition of a usurping entity and on imposing a fait accompli by force."
And why did the Arabs" of the Mandated Areas" set upon to murder their neighbors and ethnically cleanse them from their homes in Gush Etzion and the old city Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem?
Occupy? Did not Israel withdraw ALL citizens from Gaza as per the OSLO PEACE agreement?
As for the "Occupied West Bank" ----WHY pray tell is it called the "West Bank" What is on the other side of the river Jordan and where did it originate from?
Like so many of his audience of bamboozled minions I wote on their level; "Yo! My man! Go read the League of Nations Treaty of Serves that is "IF" you have "reading comprehension skills".
Ignorance thy name is ....well with the likes of US House of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez I do wonder about the fate of Merika.
