A professor at the DePaul University came under fire recently for an op-ed article he wrote supporting Israel’s annexation of the West Bank. Students at the University called on the school’s leadership to condemn the op-ed. As of Wednesday, more than 2.000 had signed a petition by an anti-war group, the Chicago Area Peace Action.
Last week Hill, a philosophy professor, argued in The Federalist that the Palestinians have no right to live on the West Bank.
“Under a different set of political sensibilities, the Palestinian people would have been militarily removed from the area because, morally speaking, after the 1967 war, they never belonged there,” Hill wrote.
He also wrote that “Jewish civilization is an international treasure trove that must be protected” and that “[n]ot all cultures are indeed equal.” Hill also said that “a strong argument can and ought to be made to strip Palestinians of their right to vote — period.”
