Helen Thomas, the former “dean” of the White House Press Corps who lost her position over a string of anti-Semitic comments, has spoken out again, this time claiming Hollywood, the White House, Wall Street and other American institutions are “owned by the Zionists” with an anti-Arab agenda.
In a speech to the Arab Detroit workshop on anti-Arab bias at the Byblos Banquet Center in Dearborn, Mich., yesterday, Thomas addressed “the whole question of money involved in politics.”
“We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that,” Thomas said, according to a Detroit Free Press report. “Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth. We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.”
In an interview with the newspaper afterward, Thomas further said that “Arabs are not terrorists,” but instead blamed the 1977-elected Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin for “creating the modus operandi for terrorists.”
Thomas was a correspondent with United Press International for 57 years, an opinion columnist with Hearst Newspapers for 10 years and the senior White House reporter, covering every president since Eisenhower, until damaging comments earlier this year pushed her to retirement.
Thomas resigned in June after telling a rabbi on camera that Israelis should “get the h— out of Palestine” and “go home” to “Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else.” Click here to continue reading.
