Helen Thomas Defends Palestinian Suicide Bombers in Playboy Magazine
Commentary Magazine ^ | 3/18/11 | Alana Goodman

Posted on 03/18/2011 8:39:33 AM PDT by Nachum

Veteran reporter Helen Thomas turned up in Playboy magazine this month (fully clothed, don’t worry) as part of her ongoing anti-Semitic publicity tour. The former “dean” of the White House Press Corps sat down for an interview (link is to the Sun Herald’s summary) about her recent controversy. First she weighed in on the aftermath of her remarks about Israel last May (“I went into self-imposed house arrest”) and her views on the situation in the Palestinian territories (“the Palestinians have been shortchanged in every way”). But then the interview took an uglier turn.

Maybe Helen Thomas should become a suicide bomber if that’s how she feels.

Helen Thomas is utterly vile. I can’t say any more without violating the rules.

And any mention of her and Playboy in the same sentence is merely adding insult to injury.

I don't see how that could be possible

Let’s be honest. If you were a jihadi bomb, set yourself off, and came to in the afterlife looking at that, you’d be wondering if you’d been sent to the other place.

There were suicide bombers in the Playboy Mansion?

There is just something deeply, deeply wrong with the words “Helen Thomas” and “Playboy” being used in the same sentence.

And I’m a woman, but that is just too disturbing.

Helen Thomas is just saying aloud what many in the media actually believe.

Thomas also took a shot at Holocaust-remembrance programs, insisting that Jews exploited the memory in order to persecute Palestinians. “There’s nothing wrong with remembering [the Holocaust], but why do we have to constantly remember? We’re not at fault,” said Thomas, adding, “Do the Jews ever look at themselves?

Outstanding! She has taken "blame the Jooos" to a whole new level.

There simply has to be some sort of law against a mention of Helen Thomas and Playboy in the same sentence at the lunch hour

The term “anti-Semitic” is inaccurate, according to my understanding. Both Jews and Arabs are Semitic peoples, so how can an Arabic woman be an anti-Semite? “Anti-Jewish” is what she is.

Figures Helen Thomas would be a supporter of jihad terrorist mooselimbs. Right in line with her comments about the Joooooos.

Can’t recall exactly her god-forsaken lineage, but it’s eastern weird/evil.

That face would make a freight train take a dirt road, so the bulldozer will have to attack in reverse, but imagine HT’s face with all the wrinkles ironed out. About eight feet in diameter, looking like one of those Mayan sun god disks or something. With an evil toothy grin.

Anyway, how ugly can ugly get?
