Superannuated Semite-slanderer Helen Thomas spoke at an “anti-Arab bias workshop” in Detroit yesterday, and the Detroit Free Press brings us her brilliant remarks:
“I can call a president of the United States anything in the book but I can’t touch Israel, which has Jewish-only roads in the West Bank,” Thomas said. “No American would tolerate that — white-only roads…”
“The Zionists have to understand that’s their country, too. Palestinians were there long before any European Zionists…”
In a speech that drew a standing ovation, Thomas talked about “the whole question of money involved in politics.”
“We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that. 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 is…We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.”
This woman sat in the front row of the White House briefing room for decades.
Speaking of roads, that reminds me of a joke:
Why did Helen Thomas cross the road?
It had just been invented!

P.S. Ed Morrissey on the “Jewish-only roads”:
That last part would be true … if there were any such thing as “Jewish-only roads” in the West Bank. There are Israeli-only roads, but anyone with an Israeli license plate can use them — including Israeli Arabs, who are a significant minority in Israel. They can also vote, and a handful hold office in the Knesset. How many Jews hold office in Lebanon? Syria? Saudi Arabia? Egypt? Yemen? For that matter, even in non-Arab Iran?
