On Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Union Theological Seminary professor and author Dr. Cornel West took on the issue of the Israeli occupation as it pertained to the current Israel-Hamas conflict.
West said that Israel was created because Jews “landed on the backs of some Arabs in the 1940s.”
He suggested in his reasoning, “Let’s look at this land possession, the history says that Jews jumped out of the burning buildings of Europe in a Jew-hating Europe led by a gangster named Hitler, right? They landed on the backs of some Arabs in the 1940s.”
He also argued that in order to have peace in the Middle East, “You’ve got to end an occupation of 46 years and a blockade,” and said that Israeli society “puts a stress on militarism and racism.”
