  1. YES, I am strongly IN FAVOR OF apologizing to Helen Thomas and REINSTATING HER. I would like to know where and to whom I should be writing to.

    It is disgraceful for the White House, to serve Jews while ignoring 300 million Americans and, to call Helen Thomas’s comments “offensive and reprehensible”. What is really reprehensible is how our president betrayed Americans and, in fact, may even have collaborated with Israeli murderers. Israel, in international territory, illegally attacked/injured/killed/kidnapped and brutalized unarmed civilians which also included a number of Americans with a holocaust survivor. Instead of rescuing these people, retaliating and demanding an international investigation, our government sent VP Joe Biden to say “What is the big deal?” For our government to abandon Americans under attack by a foreign aggressor, and instead serve a bunch of crazy Jews, is a very bid deal; It is BETRAYAL and that is REPREHENSIBLE. Shamefully, our elected officials are advocating Israel’s right to defend itself but none of these officials (I guess, except Rep. Dennis Kucinich) have said anything about their rights and obligations towards protecting Americans from a foreign aggressor.

  2. the washington post poll showing 88% of americans wanted her reinstated – is very interesting.

  3. I remember when Obama was campaigning he made a slip up when talking about Israel and Palestine and said “Jerusalem must become the undivided capital of Jewish State” or something along those lines. He later apologized and said he misspoke and it blew over rather quickly. I wonder what would have happened if he accidentally said “Jerusalem must become the the undivided capital of Palestine”? Would be our president right now?

  4. Ralph Nader is 100% right. We have no real news in the the U.S. investigative journalists do not appear on the major news agencies but those who bark the same old thing to keep people ignorant.
