A CNN freelancer was fired by the network in recent days after tweeting that “The world today needs a Hitler.”

He later said: “Glad a single tweet contributed to the #Palestine cause and brought it to limelight with me [losing] my job and the West’s claim of Freedom of expression and human rights!”
