Skip to comments.Helen Thomas to Playboy: Jews 'own the White House'

Helen Thomas is not sorry, nor were the comments that ended her career accidental.
I knew exactly what I was doing I was going for broke, she told Playboy in the magazines April interview. I had reached the point of no return. You finally get fed up I finally wanted to speak the truth.
Thomas, of course, left her perch as the dean of the White House press corps last year after telling a rabbi and blogger that Jews should get the hell out of Palestine and go home to Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else. Her family is Lebanese and she grew up in the Detroit area, home to one of the countrys densest populations of Arab Americans.
She spoke to Playboy at length about the situation in Palestine, her feelings on American support of Israel, and her take on Jews.
But her most controversial comments echoed ones shes made before about the influence of Jews in American life, which have contributed to her name being stripped from journalism awards.
"[The Jews are] using their power, and they have power in every direction, she told Playboy. Power over the White House, power over Congress Everybody is in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies, which are funded by wealthy supporters, including those from Hollywood. Same thing with the financial markets. There's total control It isn't the 2 percent. It's real power when you own the White House, when you own these other places in terms of your political persuasion. Of course they have power. [To the interviewer] You don't deny that. You're Jewish, aren't you?"
She also had some controversial views about memorializing the Holocaust.
"There's nothing wrong with remembering it, but why do we have to constantly remember?" she said. "We're not at fault. I mean, if they're going to put a Holocaust museum in every city in Germany, that's fine with me. But we didn't do this to the Jews. Why do we have to keep paying the price and why do they keep oppressing the Palestinians? Do the Jews ever look at themselves? Why are they always right? Because they have been oppressed throughout history, I know. And they have this persecution. That's true, but they shouldn't use that to dominate."
PLEASE NO PICTURES OF THE BEAST!!!
Why would a magazine such as Playboy talk to her?
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! I’m blind!
So I guess if you are Jewish you know every other Jewish Person on the planet. I wonder if they have a secret handshake?
I had no idea Playboy had fallen so hard. This is worse than when they had Sandra Bernhard on the cover. Way worse.
Non-religious Jews are the source of most supposed “Jewish” mischief. Effective atheists like Rahm Emanuel, for instance.
But they are not Zionist and could care less if Israel were destroyed.
In fairness, Helen Thomas is old enough to remember a time when Palestine had no Israeli state. I suppose if you can recall what it was like without an Israel, you’re more comfortable with the concept of not having one at all.
She is pretty much the sentiment of the American media.
A really serious Zionist would probably realize that Israel needs to stand on its own two feet and cannot continue as a client state of Washington. If God promised they could, then they can.
To paraphrase: “will no-one rid us of this troublesome ... ?”
When the senility hits, it hits hard.
Well, Hollywood, you’ve been outed now haven’t you?
She is going back to her roots, she is of Arabic descent after all.
“In fairness, Helen Thomas is old enough to remember a time when Palestine had no Israeli state.”
Given the truth of the above, Helen Thomas is also old enough to remember Jews being ushered into the showers but no hot water coming out. She just doesn’t care about the death of “them.”
Bobby’s head looks like it was pasted on. Looks strange.
“A really serious Zionist would probably realize that Israel needs to stand on its own two feet and cannot continue as a client state of Washington. If God promised they could, then they can.”
Do you mean, for example, like the day after the UN granted them statehood and five Arab countries attacked them?
Right, you crazy old bitch, that's why every time I go into Walmart all I see is those 'Made In Israel' labels on everything in the store.
Ask Helen Thomas to comment on that, and I wonder how many gin fizzies or old fashioneds you'd have to pour for her before you'd incite her to go on a conspiracist rant about how the Jews deliberately gave all of America's manufacturing base over to the "Chinks".
Tell her that if she's right, then shouldn't America turn over it's entire manufacturing base to the Jews so that our GDP would come roaring back to dominate the entire world?
Conspiracy Theories: History for Stupid People.
Helen,Do they own the press?
The Liberal Media shows how Anti-Semitic they are by continuing to publish and report this nonsense from Helen Thomas
When the President is a Muslim, and the country is in debt to the Communist Chinese...it is doubtful the White House and the Government is run by Jews
She did an interview with Playboy? OH DEAR GOD, PLEASE DON’T DO A CENTERFOLD OF HER!!!
Anyway, life is incredibly unfair. Poor old Ronald Reagan barely even recognized his own family by the time he reached 90, and yet this witch and Jimmy Carter are both healthy and able to go around and spew their anti-Semitic BS.
The really crazy thing about Carter is that both of his parents and all his siblings died of pancreatic cancer, YET HE SOMEHOW AVOIDED IT!!!
Oh well, I guess when we die, God explains all the answers to us and that we’re just not meant to know in this life why some things are the way they are.
The cure to your evil post
There is a man who coveted her..desired her..wanted her..made her swoon..gritted her teeth..grasped for air..oh Helen..the face that launched a thousand ships and burnt the lofty towers of Washington..
Oh Helen make me immortal with a kiss..
Well put. ‘Course, I don’t think that even when Helen Thomas was 20, you would have wanted to see her in a state of undress.
If “Jews own the whitehouse” Then it is the worst ROI in the history of the world, as Obama has done nothing but ignore and ridicule Israel and snuggle up to their enemies.

I am on my second bottle of wine...does it make her a Laura..she did have children...there is a man who saw in her what we do not see..are we wrong..maybe we are missing something..
At the same time there have been Jewish people in "Palestine" since ~1500 BC. They never left and were there before the Arabs arrived. When Jerusalem fell to the Romans, that didn't affect the Jewish people in the rural areas, they never left. There was nothing unfair in the split of the land between the Jewish side and the Arab side.
Since the term "palestine" predates the arrival of the Arabs as a people, then when these Arabs call themselves "Palestinians", they're calling themselves Jewish more than Arab.
The tribe of Judah is our brother. We don't want to be like Cain and claim we are not our brother's keeper.
under a mango tree in the Philippines..
You Lucky DOG.
The wife can have the plantation house in South Mississippi..I’ll take the mango tree..
When we go back to Cain and Abel, we find the first man born into this word murdered his brother, because his righteous brother Abel offered a better offering.
As we go down through history, we find a sovereign God chose a people, to be their God, and to send a Saviour into the world, to save the world.
That saviour, Jesus Christ, said: “Ye worship what you know not what: we know what we worship for salvation is of the Jews.” (John 4:22)
“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit, and in truth, for the Father seeketh such to worship.” (John 4:23)
“God is a Spirit; and thye that worship must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24)
I think most Jews bet their silver on Hillary and lost. Left with the choice of a center-left republican and marxist democrat the majority of Jews voted for the marxist.
There can be no doubt Obama is evil..he has a spurious birth,..this has not been seen since Caracalla of the Roman Empire..
Helen is old enough to have accompanied Moses out of Egypt.
Wells since Moses was a Jew; Helen was probably helping the Egyptians chase him.
Helen was probably part of a chariot team. I wonder if Helen had a harness on, or a saddle? And a bit in her mouth?
Maybe the Red Sea parted when it saw her face?
If she knew what was going to happen then why has she complained non-stop since then?
