BH, you should become a DJ because you are becoming my favorite spin meister.

She wasn't talking about the Jews, but rather the Israelites, classic.
The sad thing is, in a court of law you just might succeed in proving your point.

I wonder why Obama wasn't serving bagel's?

I'm stunned.

Helen Thomas - easily one of the most important, highly regarded, professional journalists in the United States over the last half century, a journalist who has won praise and accolades both professional and personal from JFK, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, G.W. Bush and Obama - and from the men themselves, not just their staff - has been forced out because she said... what, exactly?

Something that offended a special interest lobby.

Suddenly, against a literal mountain of evidence, comprising over a half century of work, she has been branded a marxist, a communist, a racist, an anti-semite, an evil leftist, and so on.

Utterly, utterly shameful. Shameful that Americans don't see what's just happened here.

If someone asks about your views on "Israel" in these days, when there's so much turmoil over there, they're talking about the situation between the states, NOT a religion. What makes anyone think he was asking her about Jews? The media, that's what. I'm not the one spinning it here.

You know, I'm not so sure she was "forced" out. I have listened to her a lot and when the media blew up about this, I can easily see her saying - Forget this! I don't need this crap - And leaving of her own accord. She doesn't need it.

Perhaps it were ther media, but given all her experience with the media, she should have known better than to make such an asinine comment.

Besides, it's time for a change anyway and this is just the beginning because
I can see November from my house.

It's amazing how people will spin blatant bigotry. It also speaks volumes about the people who try to excuse blatant bigotry.

Well, explain yourself. If you think something she said is "blatant bigotry" let's hear why. I've explained myself. Let's hear how wanting an invading force to leave and "go home" is bigotry. I'm all ears.

Yeah, I got that. So, explain. Explain how I'm excusing blatant bigotry. Maybe I'll change my mind. Explain how wanting an invading force to leave and "go home" is blatant bigotry. Let's hear it.

Kool for her, perhaps she got fed up of the Israeli propaganda running the govt. and twisting the latest news abt Flotilla. Whatever the reason, she spoke her mind and was spot on!

Yeah, send the jews back to Germany and Poland. We can all remember how well that worked out for them last time.

Helen Thomas was 100% correct with her statement on the Jews.

Political correct mongers just run over everyone that doesn't think their way (groupthink) it's the herd mentality.

She spoke her opinion which many agree with but since the Jewmedia controls political correctness of course she will be thrown under the bus and given a label 'antisemite'

If you are antisemite to be against jews then I guess I am one also, cause the Jew politics are very wrong and perhaps a coup de tat would solve the problem I dunno.

But I agree she has every right to say what she did and that does not make her a bigot. Only political correct mongers will label her as such.

Political correctness needs to be done away with, it's the weapon that jews and others use when they have nothing to back up their arguments. they use it as a front to label others.

just proves who the real bigots are as Helen Thomas inferred. PC, Jewmedia and such are the real enemies.

The destruction of Israel is not far away, those terrorists in control are losing it and the US government must stop supporting them at the same time this shows that the zionists running American Media have alot of power.

hence the following

why cnn hardly said a word about Israel murdering 9 people
why fox news defends them senselessly and we know why this is.
why things like this are spun as "anti semite" when they are not anything close.

The zionists must be taken down

This is such a highly charged thread, that I hesitate to even post. It seems to be displaying all of the ugliness that ProtoplasmicTraveler is currently talking about on Board Business:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

However, regardless of what Helen Thomas thinks or says, it should be pointed out that it was the United Nations that established the state of Israel in the first place:


The resolution was approved by the general assembly, 33 votes in favor, 13 votes against, with 10 abstentions. The vote was as follows: voting for approval: Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Byelorussian soviet socialist republic, Canada, Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Dominican republic, Ecuador, France, Guatemala, Haiti, Iceland, library, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Sweden, Ukrainian soviet socialist republic, union of south Africa, union of soviet socialist republics, United States of America, Uruguay, Venezuela.

Voting against approval: Afghanistan, Cuba, Egypt, Greece, India, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Yemen.

Abstaining from the vote: Argentina, Chile, china, Columbia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Honduras, Mexico, united kingdom, Yugoslavia..

www.jerusalemites.org...

Thus, if people feel that the state of Israel should not have been set up as a Jewish state, tell that to the 33 nations that voted for its establishment.

No, people with logic and intelligent thought can read posts by people like him (and you) in this thread and see the obvious facts of my post. They can also see that people like you are so closed minded that they can never see when they are posting things like bigotry and hate.

a point worth addressing, frankly.

The UN today is made up of 192 states. When the vote was held, it was 56. And of the 33 that voted for the creation of Israel, you'll note that none of them are actually located in the middle east. Every one is either European, or a colonial outpost, or a puppet state defendant on the USA.

Notably absent from the list, either for, against, or abstaining, is Palestine.

And that's the centre of this problem. That's why there has been a refusal to recognize Israel as legitimate for so long. The right to make this decision was extended to only, what.. 30% of the countries in the world, and the right to give themselves that right was given to them by... themselves.

Further clouding the issue is the fact that those 33 nations were also where the vast majority of Jews in the world lived at the time - a fact that's proven by the records of immigration to Israel, with the overwhelming majority coming from those states. And the people actually living there were never given the chance to vote.

If this vote were held today, it almost certainly would not pass - and not because of anti-semitic sentiment, but because confiscating a country to make a colony for people living elsewhere is an unthinkable misuse of power.

Understanding this is key to understanding why there is still, 60 odd years on, resistance to Israel, and why there will continue to be until the rights of Palestinians can be resolved to their satisfaction.

Finally, a intelligent comment, getting to essentially, exactly what Helen was referring to. I think some of you need to pick up a history book or use your search keys and see exactly what led up to the creation of the Israeli state. It's not like they were invited there and once they were there it's not like they attempted to mold into the society, or embrace Palestinian people and their neighbors. It has been a bloody mess, wars have continued since it's creation, the latest was nothing but a complete nightmare for Lebanon.

Sending hit squads into sovereign countries complete with fake identities to murder people and leave, get caught, and not miss a beat.

Most recently, attacking ships bringing aid to Gaza, murdering more people.

I realize that all of the people who call anyone who criticizes Israel or says anything negative about Israel; a "Jew hater, anti Semite" are perfectly fine with all this endless bloodshed. But like Helen, and her off handed remark, I too realize that something needs to happen to end this siege on the whole entire region by a group of people who were voted into this area by the UN and endless political agreements going back to WW1.

Immigration should send this old crow back to the gaza strip to live with her people.

You should pick up your history book and read what led upto the creation of the state of Palastine.. The Romans destroyed Isreal, and rewrote the map as Palastine. Thanks Ceasar, ya douche bag !

WWII just fixed a problem the Romans created.
