WH Correspondent Helen Hunt: Jews should leave Palestine, go back to Germany, Poland

...and America, and everywhere else. Just get the hell out of Palestine!

I must say, after the holocaust, her words do smack of political incorrectness, to say the least. But DAMN she sure has a way of telling it like it is, in light of how the Israelis have committed their own holocaust against the Palestinians all these decades, and especially in light of what's going on now!

When every other reporter was asking about the oil spill --- which, to be sure, is an important but not exactly politically sensitive issue for a reporter to ask about --- she was the only one to ask Obama about the Israelis' murder spree when it first happened. She previously asked Obama about Israel's nukes, when everyone else was asking about Iran's alleged weapons, and the hypocrisy there.

By the way, I (Adam Syed) appeared on the Kevin Barrett radio show (on NoLiesRadio) this past Tuesday and we discussed the Israel situation:

Now I will say, to be sure, that Jews did indeed coexist peacefully with Palestinians long before the creation of the State of Israel, so I can't necessarily agree with her en totale but she's dead on target about the occupation!

Helen Thomas forced into retirement over criticism of Israel

Helen has now issued a retraction:

I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my 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.

To whomever forced her to say that, I ask:

Does the open-air prison that is Gaza, reflect "mutual respect and tolerance?"

In the American media, Israel can do no wrong.

I like this comment at: Helen Thomas Dropped by Her Speakers' Agency - Readers' Comments - NYTimes.com

The sheer hypocrisy of this latest outpouring from our White House is breathtaking! Israeli commandos can murder peace activists with barely a whimper from the Administration but Helen Thomas can't speak her mind. So much for the land of the free....

This isn't surprising, which is pretty sad to say the least.

I read today that she has resigned after 50 years in Washington. She started during the Eisenhower Administration, and now she's gone after saying something that *gasp* alot of people don't agree with. We need to SERIOUSLY cut out all the bullshit drama.

How about you try to convince all your IRL friends, AND your family that you should release any claim of land back to the Indians then?

we should quit paying politicians and quit letting them get paid by massive companies.

it should be public service like jury duty or military service during a draft.

give them enough to afford food, provide the living accommodation for them and we wouldn't have problems with tons of scum bags trying to win office and move up the political food chain. she was just a sacrificial lamb so the people in power could wash their hands of her comment disregarding the fact that she was good enough of a journalist for the last 50 years worth of presidents

That has been repeated throughout many generations, its a lie, when one of those snakes dies another two take its place. This rotting nucleus of power is far from dying(if it can ever die), it just passes hands.

on this topic, i just gotta say i always respected her and i never even had the slightest clue she was lebanese...


kinda a shame, i agree she maybe shouldnt be fired, i also agree with 402nd that it was primarily to spare those in power the embaressment of having to deal with her anymore, and finally, for her to pull a michael richards "nigger guy" at the tail end of a 50 year distinguished career is a huge shame for her personally.... im not glad, because i didnt even realize she was a closet antisemite for 50 years until now, but i guess more than anything it shows that older people say crazy shit, its gonna suck when my mind gets like that.....

And imagine how many other people you admire are just as crazy as her...

Though I'd like to clarify, WE think they are crazy, but they are smarter than you can imagine, I mean, look how easily these "crazy people" control society.

Again with the 'anti-semite' card, eh J?

Quote:
Jerry: Yeah, I got some family backstage. Course my family's nuts; they're

crazy. Yep. My uncle Leo, (quick take of Uncle Leo in bet with Lydia, watching

Jerry on TV. Lydia is laughing, Leo is not) I had lunch with him the other

day, he's one of these guys that anything goes wrong in life, he blames it on

anti-Semitism. You know what I mean, the spaghetti's not al dente? Cook's an

anti-Semite. Loses a bet on a horse. Secretariat? Anti-Semitic. Doesn't get

a good seat at the temple. Rabbi? Anti-Semite.
I think your eyebrows are still painted on.

You don't get it.

If you support Israel as State, as a right to the people who originally lived on that piece of land because they have now urbanized and populated the area with a large jewish population, then how do you not support the return of much of the land taken by force from the Native American tribes and Mexico for that matter as well, during the period of manifest destiny in America?

That's exactly what happened.

So dow we have an immigration problem with the borders, or are the Mexicans just coming back to their homeland that was taken from them about 160 years ago?

Problem with resettlement- once the settlers have lived somewhere a generation or two then they arn't settlers anymore and you can't send them back.
There is a bad situation now and there is no easy solution.

Not sure what Helen Thomas is thinking really.

Hitler knew then what we're just now starting to figure out.

I used to support Israel when I didn't know much about the country or it's people but over the years I've seen how many women and children they have killed and it's disgusting. Israel does no wrong in the eyes of the U.S. Government. They never have to answer to anyone about nukes or even disclose they have them...it's fucking a joke.

Palestinians are wrong the way they brainwash their children but it's like David and Goliath...what do you expect them to do? Look how they live, all because of the JEWS.

I see nothing wrong with what Helen Thomas said, actually I applaud her for it.
