Yesterday, in a speech before the United Nations, CNN commentator and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill advocated for armed resistance against Israel, stating that a free Palestine should be expanded “from the river to the sea,” a phrase popular with opponents of Israel’s statehood.

After his speech, he clarified on Twitter.
