    Thomas stands by her remarks on Israel
    Reporter's talk during Dearborn visit angers Jewish groups

    Helen Thomas said Thursday that she stands by her comments about Israel she made earlier this year that led to her resignation as a national columnist. And she went further, saying that Zionists control U.S. foreign policy and other institutions. The local Jewish community condemned her remarks.

    In an interview, Thomas, 90, said that criticizing Israel led to her resignation and ostracism in Washington.

    "I can call a president of the United States anything in the book, but I can't touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank," Thomas said. "No American would tolerate that -- white-only roads."

    Thomas, a longtime White House correspondent who grew up in Detroit as the daughter of Lebanese immigrants, was in Dearborn for a workshop on anti-Arab bias.

    In a speech to about 300 people inside a center in Dearborn, she talked about "the whole question of money involved in politics."

    "Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists. No question, in my opinion," she said. "They put their money where their mouth is. ... We're being pushed into a wrong direction in every way."

    Helen's mistake was not that she criticized Israel, it's that she did so in a flippant manner that implied that they should have stayed in Germany after WWII.


    I don't think there is a problem with criticizing Israel's policies. Plenty of americans do that.

    Soon as it's deep enough, she needs to crawl into it and die.
    Throw dirt on it and hope that it doesn't ever rise from the dead.


    For Zathras, because you know somebody has to.....

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
