Helen Thomas started her career in 1943, She’s a journalist, a longtime White House correspondent, and a front-seater person at the press room in the WhiteHouse.
What happened? Well she has been attacked by an infuriated media after some comments she made about Israel and how they should get out of palestine and go back to europe. Her exacts words were:
- “Israel should get the hell out of Palestine.”
- “Remember, these people (Palestinians) are occupied, and it’s their land.”
And for saying those words, she was condemned by the (media-brainwashed) public and the media, which led her to announce her retirement. Her amazing career spanning 60 years was ended because of what she said.
The media is shocked over her comments, they’re outraged, they cannot fathom how someone would say anything bad about Israel. They believe in freedom of speech, they have different opinions, but when it comes to Israel, support should be unanimous! No one badmouth Israel! or at least no one gets away with it!
So Helen Thomas quitted her 6 decades job and I have a feeling that she’ll always be remembered, not for her accomplishments, but for having a controversial & offensive comments about Israel.
By the way, she apologized about her comments above and said:
“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.”
