Helen Thomas is Right about Israel

Letter to the Editor

It is unfortunate the Helen Thomas was forced to retire after speaking her mind about Israel. I happen to agree with her although I wouldn’t have worded it the way she did.

No religion should have a homeland. Whenever there is a religious homeland it creates a caste system where one group of people are superior to all other religious groups. If the Jews get one then it justifies the Muslims getting one, then the Christians will want one, and eventually the Church of Scientology will want their homeland. In contrast, America is a secular nation where all religions and non-religions are equal.

I also don’t like censorship. It seems that you can’t say anything the criticizes Israel or draw cartoons of Muhammad without losing your job or your life. Helen is a role model for me.  Like Helen, I don’t accept this form of oppression and I will say whatever I want about anyone I want. I encourage others to do the same.

so, you do agree that all Jews should go back to Germany and Poland? The only two countries that killed most of the 6 million Jews? You are a MORON!

No Ubergerm, that is not the point and I think the world is getting sick of people using the holocaust defense, its is completely ruining the legacy and can not be used as the dues ex machine of political excuses forever and a day.
She has a point in saying that the cultural hearth of a lot of the population of Israel are from Western Europe and Russia and not from the region. Given that land in the final days of the British Empire Israel is the last vestige of the age of Imperialism and not that I don’t think it has a right to exist I also believe that the people who have been forced to move of their lands are entitled to some dignity and respect instead of being forced to live in a refugee camp that is Gaza for half a century.
There are growing and worrying parallels between the modern day nation of Israel and that of apartheid South Africa

Rather than saying jews should move back to Poland, Russia, etc., she might have simply said they should move back to Israel. The interviewer blindsided her by changing her original subject/frame (Israel) to “jews” which is not the same thing. No doubt she’s not as quick on her feet at 90 as she used to be. But I still love her and hate to see the crap people are serving her over this.

Dear Marc, instead of pondering to the arab propaganda you should better check your facts. The only reason pure “Palestinians” in the “camps” exist is to feed liberal self hating Jews with reason to talk down to little people like me. Hundreds of thousands of Sephardy Jews from the Middle East (and not from Germany and Poland) were kicked out from arab countries that were created as a result of the last vestige of Imperialism (your quote, btw) and were all to the last absorbed into the Land of Israel. These Jews were not put in any camp to wait for some future day to move back to their original homeland.
As far as Holocaust is concerned, I really don’t care if the world is getting sick or have been sick from very beginning. I just don’t understand why is everybody telling Jews to get lost?

General signs of ignorance: when you can’t spell even simple words, and you make absurd analogies:
“Deus ex machina” not dues ex machine. Only a subliterate person would write the latter.

More importantly, only someone with subhuman intelligence would equate Helen Thomas’s being fired, or asked to resign after remarking on camera that the Jews should go back to Poland and Germany where most of their families were shot, gassed, beaten, worked and starved to death to the Muslim’s chopping off heads, rioting, stabbing people to death etc. after publication of a cartoon.

The world would be better served if you would keep your vacuous opinions to yourself. You flatter yourself by calling yourself the most dangerous person on the internet. You’re just another stupid fool with a blog.

Hi Marc,

Thought I would just check up on you, glad to see your still around and, it looks to me, doing well, dispite the divorce BS.

I myself have moved into website stuff, as no demand for delphi windows people, it is all c# and .net in my world though, no php for me.

One thing you may want to look into, is mark boyle and his new book ‘the moneyless man’, he even has a website ( just for the love of it ) and a community thing going on.

Anyway, glad your doing well, amazing collection of ladies pics you have, not sure how you do it, but, from what I hear, a huge shortage of decent guys out there so suppose that helps !

all the best

getting married,but, hey, she is a nice middle class girl who reads lots of books and takes me to the opera 🙂
