As a high-school junior in 1972 I began taking notice of this Ballsy woman.  I remember thinking what a wonderful big sister she would make.  RIP Helen.  May some young man or woman journalist take inspiration from you.

When are Americans journatlists going to learn? Freedom of information guaranteed by the laws is only free when you don't touch the Zionists with your truth. That's a no no. They are untouchables. Israel yes or yes. They are incapable of doing wrong. Hellen Thomas committed the capital murder in journalism: She blamed the Zionists for crimes that for the Congress of the USA is only self defense. Poor naïve Hellen Thomas!

The moral of this story: It doesn't matter who you are, don't you dare criticize Israel.

Another dimwit that quotes the Daily Rash.   Why are these people so gullible?

Yup.  She spoke the truth and was punished for it.

We can't afford healthcare for our own citizens and must repeal Obamacare, but we can afford to send Israel billions in aid -- where they provide their own citizens with universal health care.

@manlyman Zionism yes or yes! Look, manly man, the day before the Secretary of State Kerry was to land in Israel, the Zionist Knesset approved an expansion of settlements in illegal territories. What a nice welcome for a Friend that gives them 6 billion dollars a year, no questions asked. The Amercan Zionist Congress loves this type of friend!
