    The apology is worthless. She spoke her heart clearly concerning Israel in the interview.

    She shows her ignorance of Jewish history and shows her hypocrisy as well. Her family is Lebanese and she is an occupier as well in a land that was taken by force.

    By her standards, the USA is an occupier and therefore all the immigrants should get out and let the Indians have their land back.

    She obviously does not understand that it is God who owns ALL the world's land and gives it to whomever He pleases should "occuppy" it at any given time.

    She is now damaged as an objective reporter and I predict she will be forced to retire.

    It is pretty clear to most who know me that I am more of a contrarian than a 'Bandwagon jumper onner' but in this case I agree with the sentiments. She has the right to free speech, but she has totally shot her objectivity here. Forced retirement is a good option.

    It was a foolish statement. I would like to attribute it to her ageing, but she was sharp as a tack in last weeks presidential press conference. She knew what she was saying the first time.

    Looks like she is better at asking questions than answering them.

    Has she ever been an objective reporter?

    The solution to Helen Thomas is duct tape and super glue, and that should have been decades ago.

    And the land of North America wasn't taken by force from the Indian People?

    Do you even read - let alone comprehend - the posts before responding?

    She is 100% correct. Israel is a Jewish state.

    Palestine is a Muslim state.

    It sounds like she is advocating "religious cleansing".

    Why aren't the libs all up in arms over this?

    Probably for the same reason that you fluff it off when Beck or Rush says something worse than what she said.

    She gave her opinion. They slander others.

    Please stay on topic.

    This is not about Beck or Rush.

    It sounds as though you are excusing her for advocating "religious cleansing".

    Do you agree with her?

    What she said was inexcusable. Imagine for a moment if she had said that the blacks in the US needed to go back home, and when questioned where, she said, Niger, Ethiopia, Haiti, etc...
    To suggest that Israel and the land of Palestine does not belong to the Jews and is not their promised possession by God Himself, is ludicrous.

    I grew up in Gulfport MS in the 50s and 60s, and you do not sound like you are from Mississippi.

    Only to your twisted hearing. That is not what she said, but then again, you already knew this.

    If Israel didn't exist would the US be in this international mess? Would the military-industrial complex have come up with a different reason to keep us at continual war for 60 years?

    Rom 13:1Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

    God has the USA exactly where He wants it.

    OK as long you agree that God wanted Hitler to kill 5 million Jews and a couple million misc. people.
