Helen Thomas retires in wake of Israel controversy

Veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately, in the wake of a controversy over her comments on Israel, according to a report from her employer, Hearst News Service.

Thomas told a rabbi at a White House event last week that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go back to Germany and Poland.

Thomas’s comments provoked sharp criticism within the close-knit world of White House reporters, and drew a rebuke from the White House podium Monday.

Thomas, 89, who has covered the White House for decades, canceled a speech over the weekend and was dropped by a speakers’ bureau that represented her. The controversy comes at a precarious moment in the Middle East, after an Israeli assault on an aid flotilla that left 11 dead and prompted an international outcry.

  1. The Jews Control Money, US Government, and the World. The Jews own the Fed, IMF, and World Bank as the money controller. They pay US Presidential Campaigns.

    That is why the US president is afraid to take firm action against Israel even when their own citizen, Rachel Corrie, was killed by the Israelis.

  2. Its about time she retired. LOL, was she ever objective? At least Oriana Fallachi had real rage. wjholland.wordpress.com
