CNN Caves to Anti-Palestinian Smear Campaign

Yousef al-Mahmoud, the Palestinian government spokesperson, said the worldwide community should be held responsible for allowing Israel's decades-long occupation to continue.

CNN said Thursday that it had severed ties with contributor Marc Lamont Hill following controversial comments the liberal pundit made about Israel.

Hamas leaders such as Ismail Haniya and Khaled Meshaal have used the same phrase to assert that Palestine should replace Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

The General Assembly is expected to vote early next week on the proposed resolution condemning rocket firings into Israel and demanding that Hamas end the use of violence. Marc Lamont Hill is a confirmed anti-Zionist ideologue.

Trump on China: 'I like the deal we have now'
Some Chinese goods entering the U.S. are now taxed at 10 percent, but that will rise to 25 percent at the beginning of next year. A ceasefire, analysts say, would at least delay the risk of a further escalation in the trade war while talks proceed.

"At no point did I endorse, support, or even mention Hamas".

Israel's ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said in response that "Hamas speaks about worldwide law while it fires rockets into civilian populations, holds the bodies of IDF soldiers and Israeli citizens, and uses its own people as human shields". Fox News reported that Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust and president of Human Rights Voices, called Hill's sentiments an "especially obscene U.N. moment that reveals the true nature of the anti-Israel and anti-Jewish animus of the modern United Nations".

"I support Palestinian freedom". "I do not support anti-Semitism, killing Jewish people, or any of the other things attributed to my speech".

There are perhaps no words more terrifying to hardline supporters of the State of Israel today than "from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free".

Massive cow named Knickers has been deemed ‘too large to eat’
A giant cow which stands more than 6ft 4ins tall and weighs the same as a family vehicle is so big it's been saved from the chop. But both he and Knickers are smaller than Italian chianina ox Bellino who has reached 6 feet 7 inches.

But because an honest person could read an "anti-Israel" position in Hill's comment, given that modern Israel is within the "river to the sea" area he refers to, that much is worth addressing.

But he said that "we also need to be very careful" that Security Council or General Assembly resolutions "always stress the fact that there needs to be a two-state solution". "I have spent my life fighting these things", he added in another tweet.

This isn't a case of throwing rocks and hiding hands. "In my remarks, which you clearly didn't hear, I was talking about full citizenship rights IN Israel and a redrawing of the pre-1967 borders".

The department said South Africa welcomes the ceasefire brokered by Egypt between Palestine and Israel on 13 November 2018 following two days of Israel's aerial attacks on Gaza, making this the most severe flare-up since the 50-day conflict in 2014.

Irving's 26 points lead Boston past Pelicans
The Celtics have an abundance of talent, but it is about chemistry and players working as a unit to be successful. But Irving has a point. "We're not playing with the same personality we played with a year ago ".
