    Jews should get the hell out of Israel (Helen Thomas)

    Helen Thomas should have retired years ago, over the years, she has been giving opinions rather than reporting the news & interviewing people....

    I don't know how you could (or why you would want to) cover the White House beat for as long as she has without going nuts. It's a crummy job.

    If she wants to share her opinions she should quit her reporter gig and someone would surely hire her to write an op-ed column.

    Haha, 7 minutes after my post, we got this company-wide email:

    The following story was issued by Hearst News Service today.

    HELEN THOMAS ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT

    WASHINGTON, June 7, 2010 – Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately.

    Her decision came after her controversial comments about Israel and the Palestinians were captured on videotape and widely disseminated on the Internet.

    Thomas later issued a statement: ``I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.’’

    Thomas will mark her 90th birthday on Aug. 4.

    Good riddance this woman needed to take her hate and leave a long time ago. I think everyone in that press room is dancing in the street after this news.

    You know that's so true and its very sad she went out this way. Even though I was never a big Helen Thomas fan, one has to admire her long career and to end it in this manner is pathetic. If it was me I'd feel like I just threw away an entire career that you could never make up.

    So right Tommy. In a way I think she liked to go out this way because just simply retiring would not have made her happy. I think she wanted to propagate this hate and anti-semitism. It has gotten worse and worse and this was the only logical conclusion.

    You guys are too much.Look at the actual country of Israel it was formed on the lie of the Holocaust,THE HOLOCAUST-can't beat this one (no pun intended).How many really died? I was shocked to find not that many as they claim to have died, and while even 1 to die is too much, why drastically put out figures into the millions in order to get so much sympathy that you would need to give these people a new country?I guess i answered my own question. But on land that wasn't theirs? Putting an oppressed people in a place where they will oppress others? Come on. Nothing this old-lady said was untrue. Immigrants don't belong in America unless they file the necessary paperwork, how is it any different in the ME? It isn't.

    I remember slaves were kidnapped and made to work as well what did they get? Where is the 40 Acres and a mule for all of us brown people? When never even got a reservation!

    SHE SAID IT, I SUPPORT IT!

    Then you, her, and Ahmadinejad can sit in a room together and spaz about the Holocaust being a "lie". I'm not even a Jew and I would never say that, even if we found out it was half the people that is currently quoted to have died. I get your point as it relates to the creation of Isreal, but you lost me once it got to the "lie" bit. After all, I'm sure that after the passage of more than 100 years the figures involving the enslavement and subseqent discrimination of African Americans isn't entirely accurate either.

    Also, the point of this thread is not about whether Helen Thomas' opinion is wrong or not, it is that she stopped being a journalist when she started being an editorialist. She's entitled to do so, but not collect the same paycheck.

    Yep was waiting for this. It's a wonder I took you seriously in the other thread.

    So you placed the bait and i took it? Are you annoyed?How does this relate to the other thread?That i made vaild points hat shot down your defense of an 'unruly mob'?We'll leave that for the other thread.

    Funny how stating the facts makes me an anti Semite-or just anti-Semitic enough to be placed in the same category as ahmedinejad and this old -lady.
    I stated the facts as did she, these people didn't come from "Israel"-the person mentioned in the torah or the ficticious country that was created for them. They were khazaras that came from Poland,Russia, and wherever else they hailed from in Eastern Europe.

    ALL THEY SHOULD HAVE GOT WAS A TICKET BACK HOME! NOT A COUNTRY!

    THE LIE of the holocaust was that the overly exaggerated/untruthful figures of death were needed to justify a settlement of land for them.If its not the truth its a lie.On the officialtour of themost famous camp in Auschwitz, they say their is no evidence of gassing in any of the camps- yet we are fed this stuff on movies just so that we feel bad enough to never defame a 'jew'.Forgive me for calling it as it really is.As for facts on slavery, i have never met a group or person that pushes for accurate figures for 400 years of enslavement.I dont remember that in HS or in college what i do remember is the millions of jews that were killed at a rate of thousands per day over a short period of years.

    PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR MY IGNORANCE

    Dude I am totally not saying that you're an anti-semite. However, your intentional use of inflammatory language, combined with your black and white thinking, is what is getting you these responses. You can state all the facts you want, but no one speaks of the Holocaust as being a "lie" regardless of whether the 6-million killed figure is inflated or not. That is simply unconscionable. Most people understand that that language is reserved for folks who believe it didn't happen in the first place(which is ridiculous in and of itself). My father didn't risk his ass in a B-24 for 31 missions bombing the Nazi's for a "lie".

    And, no one should be defaming anybody, Jewish or not. As if I needed to say that.
