Helen Thomas Was Speaking to Jewish Children !!

 Rabbi Nessenoff of RabbiLive.com has released the full video of the interview with Helen Thomas.  This makes the whole incident even more pathetic, if that's possible.  It seems that not only was Ms. Thomas speaking to Rabbi Nessenoff, but she was also speaking directly to two young Jewish kids who told her they were interested in journalism.  All three were wearing their yarmulkes when Helen made her bigoted remarks.  Not that it would have been ok if she didn't know she was speaking to someone who was Jewish, but you would think that she would have had some sensitivity about insinuating that the Jewish homeland is illegitimate to these kids.

It's clear from the video that the rabbi is taken aback and, all things considered,  is actually quite kind in his follow up questions.  He definitely gets the  better of the exchange when Helen tells him that she is an Arab and he asks her something in Arabic, which she pretty much can't understand.  She mumbles something about not knowing the language because she was trying to Americanize her parents.  Kind of interesting, huh?  Maybe we should ask members of the Navajo nation or the Comanches or the Arapaho about the legitimacy of Helen's parents coming here from Syria and occupying their land.  But, actually, Helen's family had no historic connection to this country, whereas the Jewish people have lived in the territory comprising Israel for thousands of years.  Using her own reasoning, Helen Thomas should be considered to be part of an illegitimate oppressive occupying force in this country.   Maybe she should brush up on her Arabic.
