Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Helen Thomas on Israel, Holocaust Memorialisation, and Jewish "Power" ...

Unless you read Playboy only for the articles, you may miss disgraced former White House reporter Helen Thomas speaking frankly.  Here's a taste:

On the situation in "Palestine":
"Everybody knows my feelings that the Palestinians have been shortchanged in every way. Sure, the Israelis have a right to exist – but where they were born, not to come and take someone else's home. I've had it up to here with the violations against the Palestinians…[The Palestinians] are incarcerated and living in an open prison. I say to the Israelis, 'Get out of people's homes!' It's unacceptable to have soldiers knocking on a door at three in the morning and saying, 'This is my home.' And forcing people out of homes they've lived in for centuries? What is this? How can anybody accept it? I mean, Jewish-only roads? [She later corrected herself to say Israeli-only roads.] Would anyone tolerate something like that in America? White-only roads?"
On Palestinian violence against the Israelis:
"Of course I don't condone any violence against anyone. 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. Three generations of Palestinians have been forced out of their homes – by Israelis – and into refugee camps."
On American support of Israel:
"We keep giving Israel everything. Our government bribes the Israelis by saying, 'Please come to the [negotiating] table and we'll give you this and we'll give you that'…Why do you have to bribe people to do the right thing? I don't want my government bribing anybody. I want them demanding. Stop all this aid to Israel when they're killing people!...Why do they send my American tax dollars to perpetuate it?"
On memorializing the Holocaust:
"There's nothing wrong with remembering it, but why do we have to constantly remember? We're not at fault. I mean, if they're going to put a Holocaust museum in every city in Germany, that's fine with me. But we didn't do this to the Jews. Why do we have to keep paying the price and why do they keep oppressing the Palestinians? Do the Jews ever look at themselves? Why are they always right? Because they have been oppressed throughout history, I know. And they have this persecution. That's true, but they shouldn't use that to dominate."
On the Jews' influence and power:
 "[The Jews are] using their power, and they have power in every direction…Power over the White House, power over Congress…Everybody is in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies, which are funded by wealthy supporters, including those from Hollywood. Same thing with the financial markets. There's total control…It isn't the two percent. It's real power when you own the White House, when you own these other places in terms of your political persuasion. Of course they have power. [To the interviewer, David Hochman] You don't deny that. You're Jewish, aren't you?"

  1. With every new utterance she confirms not only her anti-Semitism but also her ignorance.

  2. Incidentally, it's the April issue ...

  3. Read Brigitte Gabriel's letter to Helen Thomas

    "Dear Helen: From One American Lebanese Journalist To another…"

  4. Hope she's not the centrefold.

  5. That woman is ugliness personified on so many levels - she should wear a full chador.

  6. Thanks for that link, Shirlee.
    Well, Steve, there is a rumour ...
    Rita, I know people say that, but she is 90!

  7. Bare Naked Islam has a good piece on her

    I know we all can't be beautiful.....but !!!!

  8. Her hatred for 'Zionists' seems to be consuming her. The one tiny crumb of consolation from all this is that she's out in the open now rather than pretending to be impartial.

  9. I've been trying to find the right word for this ghastly creature and have settled for grymalkin.

  10. Daphne, that kind of ugliness has nothing to do with age - she is what I call (quaintly) "ugly from the inside out".

    The other day, in a bus here in Paris a very old lady entered (she looked what one could call on the "wrong" side of 90). She was absolutely beautiful, I thought, but could not put my finger immediately on why I found her so -she certainly was no physical manifestation of the Golden Mean. She was frail, walked very gingerly, but refused to take a "handicapped" seat.

    After she sat down, opposite me, she took out a book she obviously just had bought, and started reading it, eagerly as it seemed to me. When I saw the title of the book, I understood from where her inexplicable beauty came: "Chinese for Beginners" was the title. And there was the explanation for her beauty: a beautiful young lady on the right side of 90,open and still learning !!

    In Sydney, my neighbour is an Irish man of 89, he is still planting trees, trees under whose shade he is unlikely to sit. He looks beautifull too ! :)

  11. Where in Sydney Rita? I'm in Queen's Park

  12. @ Shirl in Oz

    I live in Cronulla which has just a little bit in common with Israel, in that it is also maliciously and unfairly maligned by the "Intelligentsia", the media and the vested political interests, since the so-called "Cronulla Race Riots".

  13. I love Cronulla Rita. We lived there when we first came to Oz and I visit there quite frequently, it’s a place I always take overseas visitors to visit

    You're spot on there. I have heard so many stories of the shenanigans that still are happening on Cronulla Beach

    A month or so back, a man posted on another Oz web site, that the Lebanese youth are still barricading part of the beach. The women block the toilets, stopping non-Muslim women using them.

    People are frequently being urinated on, to stop them coming on to 'their' part of the beach

  14. Thomas is one of the few women I know that has a working brain. She calls it like it is. "Anti-Semitism"... HA! What the hell is left that's allowed to speak at all that isn't praise for Israel? You can say anything you like about other ethnic groups and maybe get some dirty looks and a tongue-lashing, but, don't say anything against "God's chosen ones" or you're vilified and prosecuted and virtually driven from society. And, never... NEVER touch the holocaust thingie! Six million (?) Jews died in that war! That certainly trumps the 25 million goyim that bit the dust under the communists in the Soviet Union. How about the tens of thousands of German folk that got firebombed by the Zionist-led allies in Dresden in one single night? I know... peanuts... next to what happened to the master race. Only the Jews have suffered throughout history, no one else.

    Do your history, academic wonder. See how the Ashkenazi Zionists have used and abused their own people to establish their glorious 'State of Israel' and seize financial and political power over every sovereign nation on Earth. See how they control every major news media and a significant portion of the entertainment industry. See how they plunge countries into debt through usury and then enslave their citizens as corporate entities. Research the Rothschild empire and how they rose to power off the profits of war and deception, now controlling over half of the world's wealth! See who the driving force was behind the establishment of the State of Israel.

    It's getting to be quite stylish to be pro-Israel, these days, among the various goyim Christian denominations. Maybe they should be reminded of their second-class status and that they were created to serve the elite master race? Do you think they'd be so quick to hold up the skirts of their Zionist masters, then?

    The various anti-democracy attack dogs of the Zionists; the ADL, JDL, American Government, etc, do a fine job of spreading the rhetoric around. Of course, that swashbuckling band of psychopathic killers-for-hire, Mossad, is always finding ways of utilizing false-flag operations in their ongoing fight to exterminate the Palestinian race. I really wouldn't be at all surprised if those Jewish settlers were the hapless hosts of several members of the local chapter of the Mossad Welcome Wagon. Are they still favoring the Beretta .22 Auto as their primary tool in the removal of unwanted anti-Zionist vermin and for the butchering of sacrificial lambs?

    Oh well... God will have to deal with these elitist, Ashkenazi bastards, no authority on earth is willing to take them on. That's funny, too, considering that they are a significant few hundred in comparison with... well... billions!

    Shows you what a well-thought-out campaign of terror, rhetoric and political-correctness can accomplish, though.

  15. Thank you, Gideon (what a great Hebrew name, incidentally), for a wonderful example of antisemitism in action.
    It is instructive, albeit nauseating, to know what antisemites like yourself think and feel.

  16. And thank you for responding in the true, knee-jerk fashion that your kind always do toward any criticism directed at your political views. Anyone disagreeing with you is instantly branded a "hater" or an anti-Semite. That's what those governed by emotions do when their logic fails... as it always does. The perfect weapon in any racist control-freak's arsenal of sedition.

    It is your ilk that is nauseating in that you assume control of society in some fevered and frenetic attempt to silence those that speak out against your prejudice and hate. Your ignorance is boundless, which makes you the perfect tool for fascists and extremists.

    Never expect that everyone is going to lay down for you and let you steal the right of every human being to free speech. By trying to enforce your political views on others, you only ensure continued opposition against yourselves. That is something extremists never seem to learn.

    Oh... and Gideon was in every way the opposite of your typical Zionist lapdog. He was a man of integrity and truth and a fearless servant of God. You are the servant/dupe of fascists and the avowed enemies of God.

    Like I said, go back to school and learn the TRUTH about your Zionist leash-handlers. Then you'll be equipped to function in a forum of thinkers. Here are two excellent links to start you off, if you're not already too far gone in your thinking:

    Link #1

    Link #2

    Good luck.

  17. Interesting theories
    Sure, the Israelis have a right to exist – but where they were born, not to come and take someone else's home.

    Israel was established in 1948 That means every Israeli who didn't emigrate and is under 63 was born there.

    And forcing people out of homes they've lived in for centuries

    Leaving aside, for the moment, theories that most of the Palestinians came during the late Turkish and British occupations, very few people live for one hundred years. No one lives for two centuries.

  18. I guess goyim aren't allowed to comment, here, anymore? Figures.

    Well, enjoy your ignorance, you deserve it.
