    Helen Thomas Forced to Retire After Jew Comments

    For those of you not familiar with Helen Thomas, she has been a White House correspondent since 1960. Her parents were Christian Arab immigrants from Lebanon.


    I don't care for her suggestion that they go to Germany or America.

    Washington (CNN) -- Longtime White House reporter Helen Thomas has retired effective immediately, Hearst Corporation said Monday.

    The media conglomerate had employed Thomas as a syndicated columnist for its newspaper chain. Her retirement comes amid a furor created last week by her controversial comments regarding Jewish people.

    Washington (CNN) -- Longtime White House reporter Helen Thomas has retired effective immediately, Hearst Corporation said Monday.

    The media conglomerate had employed Thomas as a syndicated columnist for its newspaper chain. Her retirement comes amid a furor created last week by her controversial comments regarding Jewish people.

    The reporters' statement said, "Many in our profession who have known Helen for years were saddened by the comments, which were especially unfortunate in light of her role as a trailblazer on the White House beat."

    The correspondents' association said it was going to hold a special meeting Thursday to review Thomas' permanently assigned front row seat in the White House briefing room -- as the controversy "does revive the issue of whether it is appropriate for an opinion columnist."

    And during a Monday morning briefing, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs also criticized Thomas, saying, "Those remarks were offensive and reprehensible. I think she should and has apologized because obviously those remarks do not reflect the -- certainly the opinion of, I assume, most of the people in here and certainly not of the administration."

    On Sunday, former White House Counsel Lanny Davis was among those calling for Hearst to take action against Thomas. She was also dropped by her agent, Nine Speakers Inc., on Sunday, CNN learned. And Craig Crawford, who co-authored "Listen Up, Mr. President" with Thomas, said in a blog post that he "will no longer be working with Helen on our book projects."

    Thomas made the comments to Rabbilive.com.

    Specifically, she was asked, "Any comments on Israel?"

    "Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine," she responded.

    The interviewer then asked "Any better comments on Israel?"

    To which Thomas said, "Remember, these people are occupied, and it's their land. It's not German's. It's not Poland's."

    Thomas was then asked where the Jews in Israel should go? Thomas responded, "They should go home," which the White House reporter identified as "Poland, Germany ... and America and everywhere else."

    The Anti-Defamation League said in a written statement that Thomas' apology "does not go far enough."

    "Her remarks were outrageous, offensive and inappropriate," ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman said in the statement. "Her suggestion that Israelis should go back to Poland and Germany is bigoted and shows a profound ignorance of history. We believe Thomas needs to make a more forceful and sincere apology for the pain her remarks have caused."

    Her apology also was not enough for Davis, who served as special counsel to former President Clinton.

    "Helen Thomas, who I used to consider a close friend and who I used to respect, has showed herself to be an anti-Semitic bigot," Davis said. "This is not about her disagreement about her criticisms of Israel. She has a right to criticize Israel and that is not the same as being an anti-Semite."

    Davis added, "If she had asked all blacks to go back to Africa, what would the White House Correspondents Association position be as to whether she deserved White House press room credentials -- much less a privileged honorary seat?"

    Ari Fleischer, who served as press secretary for former President George W. Bush, also said Thomas should be fired because of her remarks. He reiterated that demand in a statement provided to CNN Sunday.

    "Helen's statement calling for the religious cleansing of Israel is reprehensible," Fleischer said. "If this isn't bigotry, what is? What she said is as bad as someone saying all blacks should leave America and go back to Africa."

    "Hearst Newspapers should do the right thing and let Helen go," Fleischer added in the statement.

    Notice how Jews never support freedom of speech when it involves criticism of Israels or Jews by the Goyim.

    Btw, I think all Middle Easterners should go back to the Middle East.

    Once again, the ADL blows something small into the scope of an international incident. Telling the occupiers of Israel to go home is nothing like telling all blacks to go back to Africa. As far as I remember, the blacks did not enter this country by force and impose a racist regime over the original occupants (that's more the territory of Mexican immigrants, but I digress). Holding a political opinion (especially as an opinion columnist) is not tantamount to bigotry and religious intolerance.

    The lesson, of course, is to never speak out if you are a public figure. You will lose your job, your friends, and your reputation.

    And just so it's clear, this is all argued on principle. I couldn't really care less about the public discrediting of an Arab christian immigrant.

    Everything always has to be about Jews. I live in Charleston SC, and in 1999 a holocaust memorial was placed in Francis Marion Park. It takes up a big chunk of the park that could be enjoyed, and it's awful from an artistic standpoint(see pic).

    The holocaust wasn't near South Carolina, so why is it there? It takes up more space than John C. Calhoun's statue, for god's sake.

    Lou Dobbs had to go because of pressure they put on CNN. Now a mainstay like Thomas must resign because of her opinion? Amazing.

    Considering she looks like a Jew herself, you'd expect her to know the Jews are from the same place as her ancestors, not Germany or Poland.

    Sorry to get into semantics but she does not look Arab to me.
    she seems to be more Phonecian in her background and if she is from a christian background she is from a much different cultural background than most people in the current country of Lebanon today

    Did you ever check to see who pays for this type or "art" ? Usually it is paid for in the form of a grant, and sometimes those are federal grants. Meaning some jew loving elected official pushed the grant through as a personal project. Gods forbid that the jews would use their own ill gotten money to pay for a memorials like that one.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    The Ashkenazi Jews need to go back to Khazaria.
