About 60 students at Temple University waved Palestinian flags and marched in support of professor Marc Lamont Hill on Thursday, as a group of Zionists with American and Israeli flags clamored for Temple to fire the embattled academic for controversial comments he made at the United Nations.
In a speech delivered Nov. 28, Hill demanded a boycott of Israel and accused the Jewish state of rampant discrimination against Palestinians. He also voiced support for “a free Palestine from the river to the sea.”
Hill’s words were interpreted by some as anti-Semitic. “From the river to the sea” is often used by supporters of Palestinian causes to refer to the territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, the location of Israel and territories it occupies. Critics call the phrase coded language used by terror groups as a call for the obliteration of the State of Israel.
