The military wing of HAMAS (Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya; "Islamic Resistance Movement"), the largest Palestinian religious-nationalist socio-political movement, has published an editorial on the ill-considered comments made recently by the now-retiring veteran Hearst Newspapers reporter and longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas (b. 1920) about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Her answer to a question about the ongoing Israeli military occupation of the Palestinian Territories and blockade of Gaza was that the Israelis should leave Palestine and go back to their homes in Europe and North America. The article references a currently circulating rumor that the Israeli military killed more members of the recent humanitarian aid flotilla to Israel, specifically on the Turkish ship, Mavi Marmara, than has been reported. The bodies, this rumor claims, were then dumped overboard by the Israeli elite commandos. I have seen one claim that the article run on the Qassam Brigades' English-language web site was a "special bulletin." It is not labeled as such. Rather, it is simply an editorial/article run on their English-language web site. It does not seem to be on their main Arabic web site.
As a journalist of Thomas' caliber should be aware, there are now a couple of generations of Israelis who have been born in the region, i.e who are not from Europe or North America. Not every Israeli is a new immigrant from the former Soviet bloc or a messianic religious settler from the United States, though there are certainly a large number of those. Israelis, like Palestinians and every other people on Earth, are not a monolithic bloc and to suggest that they are lacks simply the merit of being true. It is unfortunate that such an illustrious career ends on such a sour note brought on by, frankly, stupid comments. Many of Thomas' critics have accused her of being "anti-Semitic," the usual allegation brought out predictably by right-wing Israel activists against non-Jewish critics of Israeli policies. Jewish critics are called "self-loathing" or "self-hating," even if they are self-professed Zionists and supporters of the existence of the state itself. Journalist Adam Serwer sums up the hypocrisy of some of Thomas' critics well, as they have no problem with bigotry and idiotic statements made about "the" Palestinians (as if they, too, were a monolithic bloc).
The editorial is run without edits.
Thomas: "Jews do not belong in Israel"06-06-2010,14:25
Al Qassam website-June 6, 2010-White house correspondent Helen Thomas told Jews to get out of Palestine. In an interview with her, Jewish man named as David, asked Helen for her comment on Israel, she responded by saying: "Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine."
Turning her attention to the Palestinians, she said, "Remember, these people are occupied. And it's their land," adding the Jews should "go home" to Poland and Germany.
No doubt that Thomas Helen has told the truth that everybody in the world knows, but as American in a very important position , she was attacked by Zionists who went mad from the reality she mentioned in front of all people.
A document released yesterday on You tube, shows Thomas Helen while addressing Jews as " get out of Palestine because it does not belong toyou".
Thomas Helen directly accused by Jews and pro-Israel masses as anti-Semite Nazi.
Israelis ignore the reality, that they never belong in Palestine but belong in some other countries they know better.
Thomas when she asked by David , where Jews should go ? she replied him: "They should go home, German , Poland, America and anywhere else".
She also mentioned that "remember these people are occupied and it is their land , not German and not Poland".
This statement by Thomas Helen reflects the opinion of American majority in USA and all masses who support justice and peace in Palestine an whole world.
Moreover, her statement serves peace process in -Middle East- as they like to call it, to a very great extent.
Peace process will be successful, only when Israel get out of Arab Areas ,Golan and occupied Palestine, then we can say that peace is happily achieved, other wise, and as long Israel occupies Palestine and some Arab lands, peace will never be achieved and more headache will be brought to the world by state of terror-Israel .
Statement by Thomas Helen came as a result for the bloody massacre committed by Israeli navy in the Mediterranean sea in 31/5/2010, caused of murdering 20 civilian activists who are still having unknown fate.
