I don’t think Thomas is necessarily a Muslim; rather, she’s a garden-variety anti-Semite (read anti-Jewish). And yes, I know Arabs are Semites.
Dearborn, MI (August 14, 2009) Journalist Helen Thomas, the dean of the White House press corps and a proud Arab American, marked her 89th birthday this year by sharing cupcakes with U.S. President Barack Obama, who observed his 48th birthday the same day, August 4.
Next year, when Thomas turns 90, its possible there will be a new tribute to her many accomplishments on display at the Arab American National Museum a bust of Thomas by sculptor and former White House photojournalist Susan Tinsley McElhinney.
Nor is she necessarily NOT a Muslim. Her parents are from Lebanon.
I've always cut her a bit of slack - after all, if I woke up every morning and saw that looking back at me in the mirror - well, it can't have been a very pleasant life.
But she's gone over the cliff with this one.
Hey, Helen go 'back' to Lebanon!"
