Brave and outspoken: the great Helen Thomas.
Thomas: Israel should get out of Occupied Territories; White House Correspondents Association were out of line.

Helen, I salute you and your distinguished career!
You said what most of the people I know,
including Jewish friends, think. Someone needed to say it. Politicians are terrified of the consequences.
It need not be said, but I will anyhow, the good cannot stand the hypocrisy. She knows how the people have been ripped off regarding the truth. It was Bohemian Grove-ite Walter Conkrite who said by the time he had cut out all the things he was told to cut, from the already incredibly cut material HE was sent, by the time it got to the people it was gobblegook.
The best reporters cannot handle that crap. She is an insider and I am majorly looking forward to her Memoirs. What a read that will be.
BTW, with the death last year of Howard Zinn and Eustace Mullins, there is room for another insider to start writing the truth and her rep would carry clout.
Just a thought.
Helen: please stay in the public eye, we need all the people of integrity and honor we can get, especially concerning journalism.
I still can’t believe there are liberals and even journalists who insist that Helen Thomas invoked historical Nazi imagery in her comments. That can’t be further from the truth. Am I alone in thinking this? This is frustrating.
If Zionist extremists can’t provoke the desired level of Antisemitism to advance their goals, they are even prepared to fake it.
Although the struggle against Antisemitism (and of all other forms of racism) should never cease, the struggle against Jewish chauvinism and exclusivism … is now of equal or greater importance.
