‘From The River To The Sea’ Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means
Yet lost in all these discussions is any acknowledgement of what this phrase actually means — and has meant — to Palestinians of all political stripes and convictions. It helps to remember the context in which Hill delivered his original remarks. The date is important. The reason was that they saw all of Palestine — from the river to the sea — as one indivisible homeland. They invoked the story of Solomon and the baby to explain their stance.
CNN announced the day after the remarks that it had fired Hill. In all honesty, I was stunned, and saddened, that this was the response. It later became a popular political slogan used by Palestinians who reject compromise with Israel, including the terror group Hamas, which calls for the destruction of Israel. I also called for a redrawing of borders to the pre lines, as well as a greater attention to human rights for those living in the West Bank and Gaza. Rather than hearing a political solution, many heard a dog-whistle that conjured a long and deep history of violence against Jewish people.
I stand in solidarity with Marc Lamont Hill.
