Helen Thomas, “dean” of the White House press corps, and anti-Semite Extraordinaire…

I’d spit on this uckin’ fugly scumbag if I ever saw her. The Jews should go back to their “homes” of Germany and Poland? And even the U.S.A.? I guess this disgusting, Jew-hating, wrinkled old hag has never read the bible. And you can bet the ranch that what this ugly old bitch speaks is the way the vast majority of the state-controlled media and most of the leftists in our country (even a lot of pathetic self-hating liberal Jews also) feel. And I’m certain that a lot of losers serving in the Obama administration feel exactly the same, including the head POS himself…

    It used to really piss me off that President Bush would even acknowledge this washed-up hag.
    He was a gentleman
    I’m not, at least in this regard. I’d have stripped her of her credentials.

    Of course, nowadays, her Jew Hatred is right at home in the house of Sottero. Maybe they can make her a czar

    The West largely doesn’t know about this. What no one likes to talk about is that more people fled into Israel than out of it; those people lived in makeshift housing for years but they have been given citizenship and now no one ever calls them refugees. Why should Israel be punished for doing the right thing with Jewish refugees and punished a second time because the Arabs mistreated their own people in the wake of a war that they instigated.

    @ vagabond trader:

    The sad thing is that their blind hatred and demonization of Israel makes them blind to real human rights atrocities in the world. If Israel was the worst danger out there, the world would truly be a safe, secure place. If Israel were to disappear tomorrow, how would that solve any of the violent conflicts in the regions i.e. Turks vs. Kurds vs. Iranian regime vs. Iranian people vs. Hizbullah vs. the rest of Lebanon vs. Syria vs. the Kurds. The list goes on.

    It looks like the Western world is ready to fold in on itself and wish itself out of existence; their only request is that the Jews walk the plank first.

    I agree 100% with this assessment. This is similar to the Hizbullah war in 2006 which was started right before SC meetings on Iran’s nuclear programme. This should clear any lingering doubts about where Turkey stands at the moment.

    As I told a leftist German Israel hater last week, Europe loves to commemorate the dead Jews in Auschwitz but uses this as a fig leaf to condemn the living Jews attempting to avoid the same fate. Their ploy is easy to see through and is utterly despicable.


  41. 42 | June 5, 2010 6:10 pm

    @ vagabond trader:

    They are getting away with this because people in the West have largely shown they don’t have the stomach for the fight. Any President who came down hard on the Turks because of this would show them there are repercussions. Likewise, we should make it known that people with such opinions, like the Cordoba House Imam, have no place in our society.

    Yet for some reason Israel is in trouble with Zerø for building 1600 apartments?

    @ mjazz:

    The point is never the what but the who. Saudi Arabia could build these houses on top on a children’s parade and officially name them “The cries of the crushed residential flats inc.” and encounter no condemnation. Obama’s willingness to throw Israel under the bus has unleashed the Jew haters in the region. The fact that he is still calling Turkey an important ally after they have stated their intentions to send Turkish warships with flotillas in the future shows how little he knows about world affaires. He still hasn’t understood the implications of Gaza’s violent takeover by the Hamas.

    @ vagabond trader:

    It is a “civilized” excuse for holding an uncivilized opinion. The Leftists in their Ivory Towers have a certain place for Jews (just as they have a certain place for blacks), but Israel isn’t that place. Therefore, it is perfectly acceptible to tell the Jews to leave, and if they won’t leave, it is perfectly acceptible to kill them for it. There is nothing peaceful about the Leftists. I am reminded of the passage in the Bible “Through Peace he destroys many” (or something like that). That is the Left.

    Since 1948 upward of 800,000 Jews abandoned their homes and forfeited their goods in Egypt, Iraq, Morocco and Yemen. In addition to assets valued at hundreds of billions of dollars, the property deeds of Jews from Arab lands is estimated at a total area of 100,000 square miles, which is five times the size of the state of Israel, and more than Israel would include even if it were to stretch over all the disputed territories of the West Bank.
    But don’t let facts get in the way.

    I had this discussion at Chabad last night. One of the women there was three when her family were forced to flea Iraq during the Farhud. The Farhud was instigated by Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem and close friends with Eichmann and Hitler. It is high time this story gets told.

    HT seemed to forget that there used to be Jews living in her families native Lebanon that were forced out well before “the occupation.” No word on that from her, though.

    Emanuel and his family dined on seafood at an Eilat restaurant last week. After the (unkosher) meal, the bill was handed over to a Ministry of Tourism representative who accompanied the Emanuels to be paid by Israel. Emanuel was in Israel on a private visit, not an official one, with his parents, wife, children and other family members, to make preparations for his son’s upcoming Bar Mitzvah.
    What a bum.

    I don’t think most Americans are even aware of that fact.

    One of the things I had to do when I was working down at Ft Bliss a few years ago was to help a group of soldiers who had been tapped for a mission in Saudi Arabia get the paperwork for their visas together (which, in and of itself, is unusual--we don’t usually need visas for deployments).

    The first thing I did once they sat down was ask if any of them were Jewish. I made sure the ones who raised their hands checked the box for “other” or “none” under Religion on their visa applications.

    Even the woman who worked in the travel office didn’t know about that restriction.

    In the stretch, Secretariat opened a 1/16 mile lead on the rest of the field. At the finish, he won by 31 lengths (breaking the margin-of-victory record set by Triple Crown winner Count Fleet, who won by 25 lengths) and ran the fastest 1½ miles on dirt in history, 2:24 flat, which broke the stakes record by more than 2 seconds. This works out to a speed of 37.5 mph for his entire performance. Secretariat’s world record still stands, and in fact, no other horse has ever broken 2:25 for 1½ miles on dirt. If the Beyer Speed Figure calculation had been developed during that time, Andrew Beyer calculated that Secretariat would have earned a figure of 139, the highest figure he has ever assigned. [3] Many bettors holding 5,617 winning parimutuel tickets on Secretariat never redeemed them, presumably keeping them as souvenirs (and because they only paid $2.20 on a $2 bet).

    In the fall of 1989, Secretariat was afflicted with laminitis, a painful and often incurable hoof condition. When his condition failed to improve, he was euthanized on October 4 at the age of 19. Popular as a Triple Crown champion and in retirement alike, Secretariat was mourned by millions and buried at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky, given the rare honor of being buried whole; usually only the head, heart and hooves of a winning race horse are buried, the rest cremated.[3]
    On October 16, 1999, in the winner’s circle at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, the U.S. Postal Service honored the great horse, unveiling a 33-cent postage stamp with his image.
    ESPN listed Secretariat 35th of the 100 greatest athletes of the 20th century, the highest of three non-humans on the list (the other two were also racehorses: Man o’ War at 84th and Citation at 97th ). Secretariat was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1974, the year following his Triple Crown.
    In 2005, Secretariat appeared once more in ESPN Classic’s show Who’s No. 1?. In the list of “Greatest Sports Performances” (by individual athletes), the horse was the only non-human on the list, his run at Belmont ranking second behind Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game.
    On May 2, 2007 Secretariat was inducted in the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame, marking the first time an animal received this honor.

    MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari of the National Union, who wants the bill sent back to Emanuel, fired off a letter to the Attorney General in which he said: “I was amazed to hear that following the sumptuous meal at the ‘Boston’ restaurant Emanuel handed the bill to a Ministry of Tourism representative who was present. In my humble legal opinion there is no possibility of making the State of Israel pay for such a meal, as part of a private visit by the White House Chief of Staff and his family.” “The public coffers are not up for grabs and the fact that the gentleman sponsors anti-Semitic policies in the White House is certainly no justification for digging into the public coffer at the expense of the old lady in the corridor of the hospital,” Ben-Ari said in reference to the shortage of hospital beds in Israel, which is attributed to budgetary problems. “I ask you, sir, to immediately cancel the debiting of the Ministry of Tourism’s account and to promptly send the bill directly to Mr. Emanuel’s private home.”

    I had a fun experience like that back in December with my soon-to-be-ex’s Explorer. One of the rear tires blew out on the way back from the AF Academy hospital.

    I had to get out the manual just to figure out where stuff was hidden. The jack was in a little compartment in the side…the jack handle was under the back seat…and the spare was attached to a cable under the back, which you have to crank down by sticking the jack handle into a little hole above the bumper.

    Then you have to crawl under the rear differential from the back, and put the jack under the axle. The jack handle turns, instead of going up and down. Each turn raises the jack about 1/16th of an inch. It took me about 30 minutes to raise it up high enough to get the tire off.

    Needless to say, I went out and got a real jack the next day.

    And now she and the vehicle are both gone, so I guess it’s not my problem anymore.

    UN chief wants inquiry into raid
    Ban Ki-moon proposes global inquiry into lethal raid on Gaza-bound ship to be headed by former New Zealand prime minister, along with Israeli, Turkish deputies; Jerusalem has not yet responded to proposal
    Roni Sofer
    Published: 06.06.10, 00:18 / Israel News
    The lethal raid that left nine people dead on board a Gaza-bound ship should be investigated by a committee headed by New Zealand’s former prime minister, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon says.

    The UN chief initiated the proposal, which would see an Israeli and a Turkish deputy working alongside ex-New Zealand PM Geoffrey Palmer.

    OK as soon as you let John Bolton investigate the corruption at the UN

    Report: Erdogan considering visiting Gaza to ‘break blockade’
    Turkish PM may visit Gaza, ask Turkish Navy to accompany another aid flotilla, according to Lebanese newspaper; Turkish military opposes cutting security ties with Israel.

    By Haaretz Service
    Tags: Israel news Turkey. Gaza flotilla
    Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is weighing the possibility of traveling to the Gaza Strip in order to “break the Israeli blockade,” the Lebanese newspaper al-Mustaqbal reported on Saturday, according to Army Radio.

    Erdogan reportedly raised the idea in conversations with close associates and even informed the United States of his intention to ask the Turkish Navy to accompany another aid flotilla to Gaza. The Americans asked Erdogan to delay his plans, in light of tensions on the region, the Lebanese report said.

    According to the report, Erdogan is under intense political pressure to cancel security agreements with Israel. The Turkish military establishment, however, strongly opposes the idea of cutting security ties with Israel.

    Erdogan has fiercely criticized Israeli for Monday’s raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, in which nine people, all Turkish citizens, were killed

    If, and that’s a big if, some of this is true and IF, and this is even a bigger if, the Turkish Military has any secular feeling left, maybe this could lead to Erdogan’s accidental death?

    If they mean, “protected from freedom and equality under the law with the occasional pogram”, then I would agree with this. When Dhimmis paid their jizya, it was even permitted for the collector to smack them on the back of the head to remind them of their inferior status.

    Well since the NWU ( Navy Working Uniform ) is not worn in combat, it does not have velcro. It’s holding up ok but has a lot of threads that have to be cut occasionally

    One of the sad parts to this story is the reforms that the EU pushed through have made it much more difficult for the army to step in. (They have already been on the verge a couple of times since 2008.) My great fear is that the West would force them to put him back into office.

    Nah. In combat either Marine Uniforms or many times Army since we are often attached to Joint forces bases and the Army usually is the larger force, and from what i understand, especially in the cold, the Army cold weather uniforms are very good

    Yes. I’m American but have lived here for about 9 years. I currently live in Germany where the tone is generally anti-Israel, but it is not nearly as shrill as in France or Britain where I have also lived. I was in England during the Hizbullah war; it was one of the major turning points in how I viewed Europe’s place in the world. I argued with many of my English friends about how the West fuels the war by creating a win-win situation for the Arabs. If they kill Jews, they win; if Jews kill them, they also win. Without Europe’s obsessive-compulsive knee jerk hatred of all things Israeli, this conflict would be much smaller, less deadly, and could possibly have been settled eons ago.

    While many European governments have taken the anti-Israeli side for political necessity (many of them are failing and need an outside target to jump on), I don’t think these recent antics have earned them many friends on the continent. Israel-turkey are obviously on the outs: and all this for Turkey’s place in the Syrian-Iranian axis.
