Last week, I posted video of Marc Lamont Hill propagating an antisemitic blood libel originating from the Middle-Ages – namely that we poison the water of non-Jews (in this case the palestinian Arabs).
It turns out Hill said something else deeply disturbing only moments later.
Leila Khaled, of course, is a PFLP terrorist who was the first female palestinian plane hijacker. She was part of a group that hijacked a flight from Rome to Athens in 1969 (the nose of the plane was blown up after passengers were evacuated), and then participated in an attempted hijacking a year later. She was carrying two hand grenades at the time.
"If I'm to do this, I ain't trying to be like this. I'm going Leila Khaled-style."
Sounds a lot like Hill was glorifying terrorism, hoping to go out in a blaze of glory like a terrorist plane hijacker.
And I'm sure that was his intention, judging by his "I'm probably fired right now" comment right after saying it. Thankfully he turned out to be correct in this regard, albeit for other vile comments.
Hopefully, Temple University will follow in CNN's footsteps and cut him loose.
