An online viral video showing White House reporter Helen Thomas exclaiming a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would be for Jews to get the hell out of Palestine and return to Germany and Poland has ousted the longest running White House reporter. Helen Thomas 89 yrs. old began covering the White House during the JFK administration she turned in her resignation to the Hearst Newspapers Monday.
I don’t think Helen Thomas really believes the Jews that immigrated to Palestine should actually return to Europe or the United States but the shared frustration in getting Israel to be a real peace partner in negotiations for a peaceful two state solution.
