YIKES!!! Helen Thomas Tells Jews, ‘Get the Hell Out of Palestine’ and Go Back to Germany & Poland


Helen, how do you really feel about Jews?

First Helen Thomas, the senior most White House correspondent ripped WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs for America’s initial reaction to the violence created by the Guerrilla Flotilla. The 89 year old Thomas  said Israel committed a massacre and Israel is a terrorist state.

Then Helen Thomas stated the following, this VIDEO must be seen and heard to be believed. It is obvious that Helen Thomas is no fan of the Jews.

BTW, no one told me they made a remake of the Wizard oz Oz.

Transcript from RED STATE:

Rabbi Nessenoff: Any comments on Israel? We’re asking everybody today, any comments on Israel?
Helen Thomas: Tell em to get the hell out of Palestine.
Nessenoff: Oh. Any better comments on Israel?
Thomas: Remember, these people are occupied, and it’s their land. It’s not German, and it’s not Poland.
Nessenoff: So where should they go and what should they do?
Thomas: They should go home!
Nessenoff: Where’s their home?
Thomas: Poland. Germany.
Nessenoff: So you’re saying the Jews should go back to Poland and Germany?
Thomas: And America and everywhere else.

So what WH reporter is going to be the first to ask Gibbs or Obama if they agree with Far LEFT media darling Helen Thomas’ master plan to get rid of the Jews from Palestine? Maybe Barack Obama can explain how such an anti-semite has such a prominent seat in the WH press room.


Michelle Malkin might have the line of the evening when it comes to this shrew Helen Thomas … Helen Thomas Should Go Back to Mordor or the Star Wars Cantina and Get Out of Reporting. Agreed!

UPDATE I: Helen Thomas Apologizes for terrible comments regarding Jews.

Here is the apology from Helen Thomas’ personal web site:

“I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heartfelt 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.”

Sorry Helen, a little to late and way to lame of an apology. You voiced your true feelings and showed your true colors. You should be ashamed. Mutual tolerance and respect? Like the lack of it that you just showed in your comments toward Jews in that they should get out of Palestine and go back to Poland. You mean like that?

It is obvious that Helen Thomas has outlived her usefulness as a WH correspondent and that she should be put out to pasture. Former GWB Press Secretary Ari Fleisher stated that Thomas should be fired for her comments.

“She should lose her job over this,” Fleischer said in an email. “As someone who is Jewish, and as someone who worked with her and used to like her, I find this appalling.”

“She is advocating religious cleansing. How can Hearst stand by her? If a journalist, or a columnist, said the same thing about blacks or Hispanics, they would already have lost their jobs.”

EXIT QUESTION: Will Helen Thomas say that illegal immigrants should go back to their country of origin as well? Would she dare ever make such a comment like this toward Mexicans or Blacks? Of course not, so there is an obvious bias and deep seeded hatred toward Jews. One that has no place in journalism, the White House or any place for that matter.

UPDATE II: It appears that US Rep Michele Backmann (R-MN) thinks that Helen must go as well.

This anti-Semitic sentiment has no place in our public discourse. I call upon her employer, Heart Corporation to dismiss her at once! The White House needs to revoke her press credentials immediately.

Her apology is not sufficient, considering her many previous negative sentiments against Israel. Her language is offensive, vulgar and intolerant.

Powerline is 100% correct in their analysis, Helen Thomas is completely insincere in her apology.

So what message does this send if she is not fired? If you are an ancient media dinosaur you are allowed to be an anti-Semite?

UPDATE III: Will Helen Thomas be FIRED for anti-Semite comments or will the LIBS let her skate because she is a fossil? v

The Politico reports that she is under fire for her remarks that JEWS should get out of Palestine and go back to Poland or Germany, yet they seem to think she will not be fired.

Some of Thomas’ colleagues in the White House press corps are chiming in on Thomas’ comments.

“She doesn’t speak for the WHCA,” said White House Correspondents’ Association  President Ed Chen. “Her views are hers alone. And now she’s apologized. Policing the views of opinion columnists can start us all all down a path that history suggests is best avoided.”

“Helen Thomas does not speak for me, and she does not represent the White House press corps,” said McClatchy’s Steve Thomma. “It was an offensive comment. She was right to apologize for it.”

“Helen has been a columnist for about a decade now and her strong beliefs on the Middle East are well known,” said ABC News’ Ann Compton. “I think I saw that she regretted these remarks and realized they were hurtful and inappropriate. Ari Fleischer is a private citizen and certainly free to express his opinion that this was a firing offense even for an opinion columnist. I would agree with you that Helen enjoys a rather special status as the White House. But I think her employer will have to decide whether the comments went over the line.”

So because she is a fossil and she gave a weak apology that makes her comments and personal beliefs ok. Can any one imagine if a FOX News c orrespondent had make such a reference about blacks or Hispanics how fast they would be terminated. No apology would have been acceptable and they would have been forced out ala Don Imus.

But in Liberal Media Land it is a different set of rules or double standard if you will.  Let’s be honest here, Helen Thomas is not profoundly apologetic, she merely stated what she believes in her heart to be true. The fact that its anti-Semitic is irrelevant to the MSM.

Hearst, however, does not yet seem ready to part ways with Thomas. A spokesperson told POLITICO, “”We deeply regret Helen Thomas’ remarks, which in no way reflect the views of Hearst Newspapers or its employees. Helen has expressed her own profound regret over the incident.”

      >> I can answer that. Like-minded birds of a feather flocking together. And to think I thought Albright was awful! This unfortunate looking old broad takes that cake!!!

      Not a journalist! Helen Thomas hates Jews.

      LOL Too funny. Exact spitting image, just needs the green skin.

    7. yoyo muffintop on June 4th, 2010 11:17 pm

      The author of the above, as well as the majority of it’s “regular” posters, believes only those who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, accepted his death and resurrection, will go to Heaven. All others will not.

      So to you and those…since Jews do not believe that, will they go to hell upon death? What say you Christian conservatives?

    8. dave on June 5th, 2010 4:22 am

      SM, why is #7 yoyo the flaming ass clown still allowed to post here? it’s way past getting old.

      2 Peter 3:8-9 (King James Version)

      8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

      9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

      That even means you Yo-Yo. To argue about the Jews is a useless arguement, as ultimately God will be the judge. What matters is where you stand with God…

    10. BlogTalk on June 5th, 2010 11:08 am


      I hold that yoyo asked a pertinent question. Instead of not answering it (#8), why don’t you try and be respectful and offer your answer? Anything to say?

      What does it say about a responder that they (#8) prefer to disrespectfully attack a poster (#7), instead of just providing a meaningful reply?

      Some might say that this kind of poster (#8) is exactly what #8 describes. If so, should #8 be the one who is not allowed to post here. Is he the one getting old?

      My prediction: posts responding to this post will continue their disrespect with irrelevant comments yet not include any type of answer to either these or #7 ‘s question. That is, unless you want to prove me wrong!

    11. Maggie on June 5th, 2010 12:14 pm

      All that transparency that was coming…sure is. We are finally seeing everyone in politics for what they really are ..and it isn’t pretty. I am not far left or far right, but how can you sit back and scream racist when a reporter criticizes Obama and then sit silent when a reporter tells Jews to go back to Poland?

      The story was about Helen Thomas, not posters or the author of the story.

    12. Michelle on June 5th, 2010 1:58 pm

      Because #10 those of us that have been around here for several years know that YoYo is a troll and we do not give credence to anything he has to say because he is only here to argue. He’s an atheist, Obama worshiper and no matter how much evidence FACT we present he will not listen. Much like you, he ignores facts and spins things to suit his agenda.

      Now run along troll. You & YoYo are two peas in a pod.

    13. Michelle on June 5th, 2010 1:59 pm

      #7 Yep, that’s what we believe, what of it? BTW, there are plenty of Jews who have accepted Christ as their savior so get a clue will you?

    14. Michelle on June 5th, 2010 2:02 pm

      #7 Not just Jews but anyone & everyone that has not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior will not inhabit the Kingdom of Heaven. It’s that simple. Yes even you YoYo can be saved. Turn to the Lord and you will be forgiven.

      In reference to Helen Thomas.

      #7 & #10

      Last time I checked in reading this blog neither of you are named RED. So go _ _ _ _ yourself to ask any questions that have zero to do with the post.

      Obviously by being a troll and trying to distract from the point of the post, you agree with Helen Thomas.

    18. Darleen on June 5th, 2010 10:37 pm

      Good grief; everybody knows Helen Thomas is senile.

    20. Scared Monkeys on June 5th, 2010 11:43 pm

      Blog Talk, I strongly suggest you quit while you are ahead.

      They are reacting to your troll-like BS,

      When you are in another house you will abide by their rules or go back to your troll cave.

      You have freedom of speech, not a freedom to be heard. Go start your own site and you can be an idiot all you want.

      No one has any time for your BS here.


    21. BotofYAH on June 6th, 2010 9:00 pm

      Helen is a wise one after my own heart. Just wait until folks learn about the TRUE SEED OF JACOB.
      SM: Nice, NOT!

    22. Byrnzie on June 6th, 2010 9:32 pm

      She said nothing outrageous at all. She simply said that Jews in occupied Palestine should leave and go back home. The only people taking offense to her comments are those who support Israel’s illegal 40 year occupation of Palestinian territory. Israel needs to abide by international law and the will of the whole of the international community – excluding the U.S – and withdraw to the 1967 border in accordance with U.N Resolution 242. What Helen Thomas is therefore advocating is that Israel conform to international law. So why is that so controversial?

    23. Michelle on June 6th, 2010 11:28 pm

      Maybe she should go back to where she came from, we don’t need her kind here.

      Go back to the loony bin Helen Thomas.

    24. super dave on June 7th, 2010 7:50 am

      #7: i suggest you go to peru and check in with jr. van der sloot at the nearest prison. i’m sure you and he can provide entertainment for the other inmates.maybe you would like getting screwed by them just as your criminal president
      does to our taxpayers. your opinion is just as worthless as your non existent contribution to this country.

    25. Don on June 7th, 2010 6:28 pm

      Good Ol Helen …speaking it like it should be said.
      You guys have NO IDEA of the level of disgust generated among your allies consequent to the pro-Israel crap your gov persists with.
      One more idiotic religious dip-wit US citizen standing in the middle of the Negev desert saying “god gave this land to us 2000 years ago” and I will be physically sick.
      I have worked in the US and you are the same as us EXCEPT for this religious freak show that seems to permeat your politics.
      ISRAEL is a religious state, any criticism of it or its existence raises the old “holocaust flag” yet the fascists who run it have made the Gaza a worse Ghetto that ever occurred in Warsaw….50 years of it !
      Helen speaks the truth …and if the USA hadnt stopped the various UN resolutions the whoile problem would have been sorted by now.
      WAKE UP america …you are being run by a minority agenda ….
