“Helen Thomas calls group’s criticism of opinions ‘intimidation’ “

Intimidation, is that like telling Israelites to get out of Israel?

Arragh!

Couldn't you find a smaller, fuzzier photo?

Could someone post the HTML code to make a photo smaller? If there's a code for fuzzy, that would help too.

This from a woman who pubically criticized Bush and insulted his press secretary to his face for 8 entire years. One thing about libs, they can dish it out but they sure can’t take it .

As a conservative Jew (yes, I’m a rarity) I can say Helen Thomas is a typical Arabic, Muslim, Jew-hating whore.

Helen is just jealous of Madeleine Albright. She wanted to be the Secretary of State!

Technically, she isn’t a muslim. But I hesitate to call her a Christian, even though it is her heritage.

LOL. Yeah, I never realized before how high the stakes could be in forgetting to use spell check.

CONCEALMENT of RELIGIOUS and NATIONAL hatred for Jews and Israel while under the guise of ‘unbiased and objective’ as in being a ‘reporter’ (some respected and distinctive profession, huh folks?) is intimidation, hidden though it may be. She’d probably get a better audience here if she were anti-Mormon....

But I don’t know about fuzzy.

Only licensed members of state-run media should be allowed to express political opinions publicly.

Just ask Cass Sunstein.

I see that “Zionist” is the new politically correct word for racist Jew baiting.

The left easily renames unpopular things because the MSM will carry their water for them.

Thanks I used "width=20"; which seems to be big enough to illustrate the concept, without causing retinal damage.

So she and people she hangs with can criticize all they want and it’s free speech but should anyone, say, Conservatives criticize and it’s intimidation. Just like it’s also terrorism to criticize the government.

Helen Thomas calls group's criticism of opinions 'intimidation'

Hate to tell you this, WUW; that is true of any group's criticism intimidating an individual's opinion.
It's a two way street.

“In response, ADL Director Abe Foxman told the Free Press today that the group has a right to criticize Thomas, whose bigoted comments are “doing body blows to her image.”

If her image gets any worse, it’ll reach critical mass, and destroy any major city she happens to be in. I wonder if she’s part of A’jad’s plans for Jerusalem. Can the IDF chuck a smart bomb at her on that basis?

No. 1, she’s not Muslim but Lebanese Christian. No. 2, who would pay for her services? No pictures, please.

“”I’m getting tired of this intimidation. I’m going to report him (ADL director Abe Foxman) to President Obama and all the proper authorities. He better stop intimidating me.”

Lucky I wasn’t drinking anything when I read this. Is she a living Latma TV spoof of herself these days?
