Helen Thomas, an American author of Lebanese descent, who has been White House reporter and columinst for decades, said her peace before announcing her retirement from journalism. On May 27, while covering the Jewish heritage outside the White House, she was asked by Rabbi David Nesenoff about her advice to the Israelis. Helen Thomas replied: “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine. Remember these people are occupied and it’s their land”. She was then asked where the Israelis go, to which she replied: “They should go home to Poland, Germany… America and everywhere else”. Her remarks were taken out context by the ‘Israeli lynch mob’ and made it look like the old mantra “Wipe Israel Off Map“. Helen was referring to the Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem, Gaza Strip and the West Bank since 1967. Watch video below.
With Helen Thomas gone – the Washington press corps is finally free of patriotic reporters asking politically wrong qestions, such as, at Obama’s first press conference as President, Helen tried to pin him down on Israeli nuclear weapon arsenal – by asking Obama if he knew of any country in the Middle East that possessed nukes. Obama stumbled in response saying he doesn’t like to “speculate”. Since that incident – Obama has refused to meet her.
The World Jewish Congress website reported on June 9, 2010 that Barack Obama has welcomed the immediate retirement of Helen Thomas 89, following her call to the Israeli Jew settlers to “get the hell out of Palestine”. Obama in a TV interview called Helen’s remarks “offensive” and “out of line”. Obama, as expected, has a very short memory. After Cairo speech in which he boasted of his “Muslim roots” and advised Palestinians to abandon “terrorism (Resistance)” – he was also called an “anti-Semite” and “a “Jew-hater” by the pro-Israeli ‘lynch mob’. Now, the same ‘lynch mob’ in the US media is after Helen Thomas for saying the truth.
Ari Fleischer, the Israeli Hasbara front, who lied for the Bush administration for as long as his Jewish soul can stand it, was one of the first to criticize Helen Thomas for using her ‘freedom of speech’ rights.
Roger Tucker in his praise for Helen Thomas, titled God Bless Helen Thomas, wrote:
In preparation for my bar-mitzvah I attended Hebrew School at a place called Temple Emeth in Brookline, MA. Emeth is Hebrew for truth, and I was young enough, 11-12, to be curious what that meant. What I mostly discovered was an ancient cult dedicated to telling old wives tales meant to frighten and cajole its adherents into becoming and remaining loyal members of the tribe. The “truth” indeed. But I do remember that some of the old texts frequently mentioned something called “righteousness,” which was somehow supposed to be the bedrock of the whole thing. Of course, no one actually believed in God. The “enlightened” Jews of Europe threw out that retro concept generations ago. Their new faith was Zionism, which can be summed up with the words, “God does not exist, but he gave us the Land.” In replacing the old faith with the new, that old notion of “righteousness” conveniently disappeared – the baby got thrown out with the bathwater. What did remain was the actual faith of the Pharisees going back to biblical times, the worship of the Golden Calf, the belief in and absolute devotion to money and power.
She has seen it all, and if there’s anyone who knows what the truth is, it is Helen Thomas. She saw the pressure and treachery applied by the Zionist mafia that led to the birth of Israel as an American protectorate in the Middle East. She saw her country that she so loved fall prey to a ruthless fifth column that has turned America into an obedient puppet of what a French diplomat once called “that shitty little state.” She watched as the Chicago Jewish political mafia picked out and groomed a nobody for the Presidency, the perfect Uncle Tom with a silken tongue who would smoothly carry out Massa’s orders
Who knows what the “rabbi” said to set her off, but whatever it was, she could no longer contain what she (and hundreds of millions of others who have not been duped or seduced by the Zionist) have felt all along, so she said what is so obvious – a bunch of genocidal settler-colonialist Eastern European fascists have no business being in Palestine in any other capacity than as tourists and should just get the hell out.
