(Helen) Thomas, a longtime White House correspondent who now writes a column for Hearst newspapers, made the comments May 27 after a White House Jewish heritage event.
Asked by Rabbi David Nesenoff of RabbiLive.com if she had “any comments on Israel,” Thomas replied, “Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.”
Thomas went on to say that the Palestinian people “are occupied and it’s their land” and that Israelis should “go home” -- to Poland, Germany, America “and everywhere else.”
In a written statement issued Friday, Thomas apologized, saying, “I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
She said the comments “do not reflect” her “heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance.”
Despite Thomas’ contrived apology, I don’t buy it. The words she spoke to Rabbi Nesenhoff were her true feeling, but she lacks the courage to stand by them as does all the left. Perhaps it is appropriate for her to be working for Hearst News as the company’s founder was famous Nazi sympathizer Randolph Hearst who shilled for Adolf Hitler in the United States according to Karl von Weigand who spoke to Ambassador Dodd in 1935. Shared ideologies perhaps? Regardless, Helen Thomas’ comments are part of a trend of a spreading poison that once provided fertile ground for World War II and the final solution.
It is well known that the Muslim Brotherhood is the ideological descendent of the Nazi SS and in fact, they still use Nazi propaganda to this day regarding the Jews. Never mind the fact that the connection between the SS and Islam was strong enough to bring about Muslim involvement in the Odessa program used to spirit away notable Nazis like Doctor Josef Mengele and Adolf Eichmann. In fact, there were many Nazi SS units comprised entirely of Muslims who aided and abetted in the Holocaust and they have never been called to answer for their crimes. The children of these corrupted and morally lacking men were raised in institutionalized hatred and instilled with a burning desire to destroy Judaism, but Helen Thomas and the left consistently take their side. Why?
There can be no other explanation, but that they agree with their assessment of the Jews. That is why they call for the destruction of Israel and that is why they support terrorists. The support of the left is not tied to justice, nor fairness, or for any humanitarian reason, but to the fascist ideology of the Muslim because it is there that they see the one thing that draws them: power. Power over people, thought, creativity, and morality is ultimately the goal of the left. They do this through little pushes or nudges of the public toward that goal while they conceal their true intent behind sweetened words and feigned concern.
Ultimately, the fools of the left believe that they can control the Muslims and use them as a tool to achieve their purpose. This is what drove the progressives toward the Soviets at the turn of the 20th century, but instead of controlling communism it turned out that they were the useful idiots for a hostile regime and Islam will also destroy them if and when it assumes power because nobody with a modicum of common sense trusts a traitor and Islam is no fool and they will pursue them mercilessly with the objective of butchering them as was the Soviet plan.
Despite this, the rise of anti-Semitism throughout the world is greatly troubling. It means that the leftist ideal is dominant and that is why Islam is spreading like a virus. Where multiculturalism has destroyed the native culture, Islam finds fertile ground to plant its own culture and establish Sharia law. Where morals and values have been corrupted and disposed of by the left, Islam establishes its own morals and values. Therefore, European nations that were once clearly identified with the West are now victims of their own arrogance and are beginning to resemble nations of the Middle East more and more. The greater the strength of Marxism/socialism in a nation the swifter that nation has succumbed to Islam because the leftist ideology is a social corrosive and acts by destroying the national will and culture. This is why politicians such as Geert Wilders and Ayaan Hirsi Ali have been ostracized and hunted by Islam.
In short, we are losing. The fight against terrorism is in reality a fight against the ideology of the Nazis. The left loves to place that label on all that they hate, but truly it is they who richly deserve that moniker. They created, supported, and rooted for it. It is inbred in leftist thought and deed and they truly love it above freedom and above compassion and mercy for others. Yet, like Stalin, they brand everyone else with that mark because nobody wants to hear the opinions of a Nazi. In short, it is pure propaganda of a sort that would make Goebbels envious. Of course, it also helps to be completely ignorant of your own historical roots in such a tyranny as the left most certainly is and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
In order to win, we must be vocal. We must educate others and we must confront the leftist lie everywhere it is found. We must insure that our children are educated in what it means to be free and taught that in order to be free one must be independent and that government must be kept weak in order to prevent its interference in our daily lives. Further, we must support our allies and that means supporting Israel. This is especially so when she acts to defend herself from Islamic extremists who seek to destroy her, but it is hard to do when there is a weakling occupying the Oval Office speaking of hope and change as the world burns.
If America will not lead then we are doomed. All one needs to do is to look at the United Nations to see the corruption that is running rampant across the world and in its wake is left the disease of Islam. As Oriana Fallaci once said, “They have passion,” and that is what is lacking in the West and we had damned well better find some before it is too late.
