Should Hearst Fire Helen Thomas or tolerate her like an aging Grand Mother who says inappropriate things

Helen Thomas: Jews “get the hell out of Palestine” go back to “Germany, Poland  and America”


Veteran White House Correspondent Helen Thomas has provoked a storm in the US after saying the Jews must “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to Germany or Poland.

Thomas, who will be celebrating her 90th birthday soon, made the remarks in a talk with Rabbi David Nesenoff on the margins of an event held by President Obama last week to mark Jewish heritage month.

After being asked for her opinion of Israel, Thomas responded by saying: “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”

Turning her attention to the Palestinians, she said, “Remember, these people are occupied. And it’s their land,” adding the Jews should “go home” to Poland and Germany.

Thomas’ remarks have prompted numerous calls for her resignation. One of those who spoke out against her is Ari Fleischer, the former White House spokesman during President George W. Bush’s presidency.

“She should lose her job over this,” Fleischer told the Politico website. “As someone who is Jewish, and as someone who worked with her and used to like her, I find this appalling.”

Is Helen a bit of an anti-Semite? Thomas berated Robert Gibbs for America’s initial reaction to the violence created by the Guerrilla Flotilla; she said Israel committed a deliberate massacre, international crime, and called Israel a terrorist state.
