Plain Speaking from Helen Thomas, Dean of White House Press Corps
The Diab family. Three generations of Palestinian refugees, their village was depopulated in 1948 and its buildings destroyed. Israel has ruled out any repatriation of the millions of Palestinians in the Diabs' position because that would jeopardise the Jewish majority in the world's only Jewish state.
Avigdor Lieberman. He's from Moldova. He came to Palestine in 1978. If you are a former bouncer from Soviet Moldova, welcome to Palestine.
And this lady is from LA. She plans to join the Israeli Defense Forces in October.
Helen Thomas is vilified for speaking plainly and truthfully, as so many Palestinians and their supporters have been since the artificial imposition of a "Jewish" state in Palestine.
"Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine. These people are occupied.
"Go home. Poland Germany and America and everywhere else."
Helen Thomas, American-Arab, Dean of White House Press Corps
I really appreciate everything you're doing on your blog. I also blog for Palestine. I certainly support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and I'd be honored if you'd link to me. I've just included you on my blogroll.
Anyway, thanks for all you do. Keep up the good fight, and I hope to talk to you again.
I'm from the US & stumbled upon your blog after I googled 'Elie Wiesel'. It led me to one of your posts in 2006 where Wiesel was being hypocritical. Anyway, I support the Palestinians & what was done against them has never been fully acknowledged in the West. Someone's holocaust doesn't justify another's apartheid.
