This one got me. Helen Thomas, a reporter for Hearst, really shot her mouth off this time. She is a veteran reporter and an overt liberal. She attacks Republicans and coddles Democrats. And her true colors showed through last week (along with her senility).
Veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas has issued an apology after saying in an interview that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine.”
Thomas, a longtime White House correspondent who now writes a column for Hearst newspapers, made the comments May 27 after a White House Jewish heritage event.
Asked by Rabbi David Nesenoff of RabbiLive.com if she had “any comments on Israel,” Thomas replied, “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”
Thomas went on to say that the Palestinian people “are occupied and it’s their land” and that Israelis should “go home” — to Poland, Germany, America “and everywhere else.”
In a written statement issued Friday, Thomas apologized, saying, “I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
She said the comments “do not reflect” her “heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance.”
“May that day come soon,” she added.
Why bother to apologize? She said what she had to say. Does the apology make it all disappear? Her true anti-Semitic feelings were revealed. In fact, she echoes the anti-Israel sentiments of most of the mainstream media. Israeli soldiers act in self-defense, and the world goes nuts. I’m convinced that there is seriously a global conspiracy against Israel. And why not? You have idiots like Thomas who are purported to be objective journalists – and they’re creating the news. Based on Thomas’ remarks, you can see where the sentiments lie. I just don’t understand sometimes.
