Helen Thomas

She’s back!


Yup, with two clearly anti-Semitic statements to her credit over the last year, 90-year-old Helen Thomas has just made it a hat-trick!


In a recent interview with Playboy Magazine, Thomas, the former long-time White House correspondent and journalist, made no excuses for her anti-Israeli rants, which placed Thomas in the unemployment line last summer.


Apparently, Thomas simply can’t – or won’t – take a hint, and refuses to make excuses for her comments. In Playboy, she stated that she “knew exactly what she was doing,” and that the White House and the US Congress are “in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies.”


Last year Thomas was forced to resign from Hearst Corp. after saying that Jews don’t belong in “Palestine” and they all should “go home to Poland, Germany and the United States”.


Now, in the Playboy article scheduled to come hit stands in April, Thomas makes no apologies.”Why should not I say it? I knew exactly what I was doing- I was going for broke. I had reached the point of no return. You finally get fed up."


While denying that she has nothing against Jews, she has, in the past, stated her opposition to Zionism.


“I think they're wonderful people,” she tells Playboy. “They had to have the most depth. They were leaders in civil rights. They've always had the heart for others but not for Arabs, for some reason. I am not anti-Jewish- I am anti-Zionist."


Thomas paused long enough to remove her left foot from her mouth before inserting the right, stating that Jews “carry on the victimization [referring to the Holocaust]. American people do not know that the Israeli lobbyists have intimidated them into believing that every Jew is a persecuted victim forever- while they are victimizing Palestinians.”


On the subject of the Holocaust, Thomas went on to tell Playboy, "there’s nothing wrong with remembering it, but why do we have to constantly remember? We’re not at fault."


Finally, Thomas reduced herself, and Playboy, by regurgitating her seemingly favourite conspiracy theory, claiming that in the US, “it’s very open everybody is in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies, which are funded by wealthy supporters, including those from Hollywood. Same thing with the financial markets. There's total control. Not just two percents."
