Thanks so much for writing in support of Dr. Marc Lamont Hill and demanding his reinstatement to CNN. We have strength in numbers and your critical voice will send a clear message to the network that it must not buckle to pro-Israel pressure and punish its contributors for supporting freedom and justice in Palestine.
Thanks Freya

From Marc Lamont Hill to the Quakers, no criticism of Israel is allowed.


CNN's firing of Marc Lamont Hill and outrage at Airbnb and the Quakers reveal a complete intolerance of criticism

For 30 years, the United Nations has held an annual International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on 29 November. The event rarely merited even a passing nod in the mainstream media. Until last week.

Marc Lamont Hill, a prominent US academic and political commentator for CNN, found himself deluged by a tsunami of outrage over a speech he had made at the UN headquarters in New York. He called for an end to Oslo's discredited model of interminable and futile negotiations over Palestinian statehood – a strategy that is already officially two decades past its sell-by date.
10 December 2018

In its place, he proposed developing a new model of regional peace based on a single state offering equal rights to Israelis and Palestinians. Under a barrage of criticism that his speech had been anti-semitic, CNN summarily fired him.

Keeping Palestine "occupied" means many things, including, but not limited to, harassment, intimidation, eviction, deprivation, vandalism, theft, torture, food and medical strangulation, in short - everything, that comprises what would normally be called ordinary day to day living.
Like in any war/occupation, there is nothing "ordinary" about it. (French citizens under the Vichy government documented that very well.) Seeing is believing:

This is just one of many crimes against Palestinians, and what the illegal occupation, Israel 'democracy', looks like... for Palestinians.

The Israeli army has demolished a residential building owned by a Palestinian woman whose five sons have all been imprisoned by Israel.
December 15, 2018

The building, owned by Latifa Abu Hmeid, is located in the Amari refugee camp near the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

According to an Anadolu news agency reporter based in the area, Israeli soldiers raided the camp early Saturday, surrounding the building before bringing it down in a controlled demolition.

Before razing the four-story structure, the army evicted dozens of journalists and solidarity activists who had been inside the building in a bid to prevent its destruction.
