    As every one else points out, there is no way of knowing, but I find it unlikely.

    This is hearsay till I remember where I read it, but I read that the press corp is circleing the wagons around her. If this true they may be of like minds. Or liberals covering for liberals. Wish I could remember where I read it but some of you will run across the piece.

    What a load of crap.

    Sure...her statement comes from her being in the White House press corps - and NOT from the fact that she's the child of Lebanese immigrants.

    Which do you think has more influence.

    You guys are living in a cartoon world. It's the only reason I can come up with for the way you paint everyone with whom you disagree with the same broad strokes.

    It just keeps getting worse on here.

    Utterly remarkable.

    I have been mulling over what Helen Thomas actually did say.
    1) it is my understanding that Free Speech is guaranteed under the Constitution of the USA.
    2) She did suggest that the Jews return to the Nations from which they came, namely Poland/Germany/USA and other nations around the World.


    The Critics of her words (of whom I was one) automatically reasoned that she was suggesting that there should be a continuation of the Holocaust, however this could not take place as the Nazi's were defeated.
    I do not believe that this is what she was implying.

    I believe that if we simply take her words at face value, as she used them, there would be no reason to become as irate as we appear to have done.

    I hear that she has apologized and resigned whatever position she held.
    I fear that what we as a civilization are doing is not good for freedom of speech, we must move away from condemning people because we hear something in their uttered words that was not implicitly implied or spoken.

    God I hope not. That would be very very scary.

    If that view was held by most of the White house press corps, I would care quite a bit. Its an extremely disturbing view to be held by a majority of any group, let alone those who are in charge of disseminating information to the public.

    I don't know. I do not think her views make her anti-semitic and to a certian degree she has a point. What happened with Israel today would be like us taking a section of Africa, kicking out the inhabatants and letting blacks all over the world immigrate to those sections they claimed their ancestors are from. Or it would be like the federal government taking your home and giving it to some native American tribe that once inhabated your home centuries ago. So I do not know why we are fooling ourselves on this issue of Israel.Just because your ancestors or anceint ancestors lived in a area does not give you a claim to it. That said to the victor go the spoils of war. The Arabs the Ottoman empire as a result of of WWI and it was broken up into different chunks and the allies were free to do with what they wanted with their chunk.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
