Helen Thomas defended Palestinian suicide bombers in her latest interview.
Of course, it’s not the first time this liberal media darling spouted off against the Jews. In June 2010 Thomas told rabbilive.com that Israel should, “Get the hell out of Palestine.”
Now she’s defending suicide attacks against Jews.
Alana Goodman at Commentary Magazine reported on her interview:
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.
“Of course I don’t condone any violence against anyone,” said Thomas, when asked about Palestinian terrorism against the Israelis. “But who wouldn’t fight for their country? What would any American do if their land was being taken? Remember Pearl Harbor. The Palestinian violence is to protect what little remains of Palestine. The suicide bombers act out of despair and desperation.”
