Skip to comments.Helen Thomas: Jews didn't have to leave Europe following Holocaust
Posted on 02/19/2011 7:40:56 AM PST by Kaslin
In CNN interview, veteran reporter refuses to call comments urging Jews to leave Israel and return to Europe insensitive, says Israel's treatment of the Palestinians is the real insensitivity.
The Jews did not have to leave Germany and Poland following the Holocaust since they were not being persecuted anymore, former White House correspondent Helen Thomas said in an interview on Thursday, adding that the Jews had no right to take other people's land.
Thomas, 90, stepped down from her job as a columnist for Hearst News Service in June of last year after a rabbi and independent filmmaker videotaped her outside the White House calling on Israelis to get "out of Palestine."

She needs another ride on the UGLY TRAIN!!!
It’s really nice after all the years of proclaiming Helen Thomas to be a whacked-out-nut-job to be able to say, “See, We Told You So”!
The gift that keeps on giving, just like Jimmuh Carter...
The jews didnt have to leave Europe after the Holocaust. Most were dead already and those that survived wanted to make sure they had a homeland where they could make sure it never happened again.
helen thomas is the reason why brothers and sisters shouldnt marry. They can produce offspring as retarded as she is.
I used to think that Helen Thomas was just stupid. Now I realize that she’s out-and-out delusional.
Naaahhh, she's always been like that...
And dont forget catholics who voted for a pro dead baby POTUS.
There is enough blame to go around for the state we are in now.
Or, she's just an stupid evil bitch.
And Helen’s parents didn’t have to leave Tripoli, Lebanon.
The democrat party is filled with these vicious racist anti-semites, like Helen Thomas.
Meanwhile the Darwin Award idiot U.S. Jewish sheep give endless money and votes to the democrats.
Probably easier to leave and start over than to get your furniture back from young Georgie Soros.
More standard, boring, Arab propaganda. Jews did not take someone else's land.
More importantly, if she stands on principle, she should apply it uniformly. So, does she blame Muslims for taking over Spain and the largely Christian North Africa? What about the Turks, who had never been even observed where they lived now and simply showed up and took over? Should they get out of Istanbul and rename it back to Constantinople? What about the Arabs --- should they all crawl back to the Arabian peninsula?
Of course not.
Her "principles" apply only to the Jews.
She’s 90 years old. How much longer until this stupid, ugly, anti-semitic old Arab hag takes her rightful place in Hell? Actually what would be great is that instead of 72 virgins, the 9/11 hijackers get Helen Thomas.
“Helen Thomas: Jews didn’t have to leave Europe following Holocaust”
Sure, Helen...they should have just stuck around...they were so loved there.
Somebody revoke her status as a Kentuckian.
Dearest Helen, the fungi that spawned you didn’t have to leave Lebanon either. Why don’t you go haunt another forest somewhere else?
That has always been my assumption about her.
Somebody needs to put this woman under Hospice care.
“Actually what would be great is that instead of 72 virgins, the 9/11 hijackers get Helen Thomas”
Oh, I don’t know. With her looks I’d say there’s a good
chance that she might be a virgin.
and the “Palestinian refugees” didn’t have to leave Israel. “Other people’s land” is an interesting phrase.
She should have to go sit in the corner with all those old concentration camp guards.
Did the ugly on the outside seep down to the inside, or did the ugly on the inside bubble up to the outside? I should apply for a grant to study that.
She's just something the thoroughbreds left behind.
“Somebody needs to put this woman under Hospice care.”
Suggestion: Put her on display in the museum; Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Dachau. Any of the old camps will do nicely. She can be her own exhibit of the last Nazi journalist.
Jews did not want to be dependent on other nations’ goodwill for survival ever again.
Hence, the nation of Israel.
Who keeps interviewing this HAG?
When I think of Helen, I think of someone roasting in hell. She’s mean-spirited. She’s vicious. She’s heartless. She’s spiteful. It’s good for Helen that God dispenses final justice and not me.
What exactly are the Jews of Israel doing to the Palestinians? Is there a specific list of grievances? Is it ongoing or just historic, i.e. “You took our land”? How much money has been given to the Palestinians by the US, Western Europe, and others?
Few points, Helen:
1. Jews that did return to their homes generally found them occupied by non-Jewish Germans, French, or whomever, and were killed.
2. The land they went to live on had been purchased over the last 100 years by Jews or Zionist groupes, from willing sellers, largely absentee landowners.
Is it anti-Semitism or senility?
Gee Helen, you suppose maybe they didn’t feel welcome there anymore?
Bull! Polish Communist scum basically kicked the Jews out of Poland in 1968.
Arabs who worked for Hitler didn’t have to leave Europe either, but they fled trial for crimes against humanity. Thanks Kaslin.
My guess it that most of them would have been happy to come to the US rather than go to British-mandate Palestine, but the Democratic President and the Congress (Democrat-controlled until January 1947) wouldn't let them in...the "national origins" rules were still in place.
Why did CNN interview this Nazi bitch? She clearly hate filled; it’s written all over her face. She probably has a big picture of Der Fuhrer in her bedroom and thinks fondly of what might have been. She should die so that she go to Hell and personally meet him.
People can live with those who want to kill them. It happens all the time. Why, just recently, we elected a Muslim President. And, after Muslims flew planes into our buildings, we apologized and let more of them in. Surely Jews could have apologized and tried to determine the source of the hatred.
She's neither of those. She is however an evil Commie bitch dutifully following the party line.
It’s Liberalism which is insanity.
Not all of us!!
I lived in Amsterdam, the Netherlands for many years. Prior to WW2, Amsterdam had the largest Jewish population in the world. When the Germans invaded all the Jews were sent to concentration camps. As the war progressed and there was no fuel, the city systematically dismantled the Jewish community board by board until there was nothing left. One of Amsterdam’s metro stops is dedicated to this event and the walls are covered with enlarged photos of what it looked like so that it would be never forgotten.
She is such a jerk. You know you’d think by the time you got to her age you’d have a little bit of sense. With all her years this woman has learned nothing.
