The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) is demanding that Temple University fire Professor Marc Lamont Hill and recommends that CNN drop him as a commentator. “The Zionist Organization of America has called for academic and activist Marc Lamont Hill to be fired from Temple University in Philadelphia, where he teaches, and CNN, where he is a contributor, for his support of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan,” the Jewish News Syndicate reported on October 24, 2018.
Hill insists that, despite his friendship, he disagrees with Farrakhan on anti-Semitism and LGBT issues. Nevertheless, the JNS claims that “Hill has an extensive history of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel activism. For example, on Monday he retweeted an event sponsored by Students for Justice in Palestine at Temple, scheduled for Nov. 6.”
