I really don't have taste of writing about either of them! CAIR and Helen Thomas! But finally decided to write, because, we really need to spread this message to as many as people we can. This is the time, we need to know, why the pro-Jihadist CAIR is going to honor Helen Thomas.
This Helen Thomas, while commenting on Israel said, "Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine".
Right after this extremely objectionable statement from Helen, [please excuse me, I cannot be respectful to this woman], President Barack Obama, termed her, "a real institution in Washington."
In August 2010, a group of Holocaust survivors and relatives criticized the Arab American National Museum of Dearborn, Michigan for its plans to place a statue of Helen Thomas in its museum, saying that it would be immoral to honor her and that "American values are at stake."
And, this woman has been named in World Almanac amongst 25 most influential women in United States. I will fail to understand, who are those Americans, showing any respect for this nasty Helen Thomas? Are they people like GZ mosque project kingpin Imam Faisal or those hidden Islamists inside USA?
Now this once White House correspondent Helen Thomas, who resigned from Hearst newspapers in June after a row over her anti-Jewish comments, will receive a lifetime achievement award from the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR], another group, actively working inside United States in promoting the culture of Jihad.
CAIR will honor Thomas, 90, who is of Lebanese descent, at its Leadership Conference and 16th Annual Fundraising Banquet on October 9 in Arlington.
The interview which forced Thomas's resignation took place on May 27, on the White House lawn. Thomas was interviewed by Rabbi David Nesenoff. The short interview, which quickly became an Internet hit, went thus:
Nesenoff: Any comments on Israel? We're asking everybody today, any comments on Israel?
Thomas: Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine.
Nesenoff: Oooh. Any better comments on Israel?
Thomas: Remember, these people [the Arabs - ed.] are occupied and it's their land. It's not German, it's not Poland...
Nesenoff: So where should they go, what should they do?
Thomas: They - go home.
Nesenoff: Where's the home?
Thomas: Poland. Germany.
Nesenoff: So you're saying the Jews go back to Poland and Germany?
Thomas: And America and everywhere else. Why push people out of there who have lived there for centuries? See?
After reading this short version of her interview, I have lost minimum taste of reading her books and immediately looked for any, written by her in my library. There was one titled 'Listen up President'. It was co-written by this woman Craig Crawford. Next book I found is 'Front Row at the White House'. As a symbol of my anger, I immediately took off those books from my family library, continued to kick them off from my house and finally set them on fire. And I am happy for what I have done.
