After a long silence following her infamous ‘Jews should go back to Germany’ comment, Helen Thomas receives a medal from PA President Mahmoud Abbas in Washington.
In May 2010, at a White House event commemorating Jewish heritage week, Thomas, the senior White House writer, was asked for her opinion of Israel. “Tell them that they need to get out of Palestine, and return home to Germany, Poland, and America,” Thomas responded on camera.
As a result of her comment, an onslaught of public criticism forced Thomas to apologize and retire. Shortly after her retirement, however, Thomas claimed she said “exactly what she thought.” As a result of the comments, the Society of Professional Journalists decided to discontinue the yearly lifetime achievement award bearing Thomas’ name.
It seems, however, that there is in fact someone who sees Thomas and her comments in a more positive light. Last Sunday, dozens of diplomats and journalists assembled in Washington for an event in her honor.
The man responsible for organizing the event was none other than the head of the Palestine Liberation Organization General Mission to the U.S., Maen Areikat.
Representatives of the PLO in Washington released a statement claiming that the text of the prize was written to “recognize Thomas’ long career in the field of journalism, during which she defended the Palestinian position every step of the way.”
The event was also attended by PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi, who presented the medal to Thomas, bestowing upon her the honor said to have come from Abbas himself.
According to the Washington PLO office’s statement, Ashrawi “presented Thomas with the appreciation and blessing of the president and the Palestinian people, for all of her actions supporting Palestine in the West.”

Since Obama called Benjamin Netanyahu a liar, why not give a medal of honor to Helen Thomas?
She has the solution. Just send Netanyahu back to the death camps in Poland.
That will be the obvious end of the conflict in the Middle East.
If Hitler had been able to gas all the Jews in Auswitch, there would not have been any Israel west of the Jordan river, as decided by the League of Nations in 1922. Only the “state of Palestine”.
God of Israel do not sleep.
He listen to men like Obama, and to ladies like Helen Thomas. If they do not repent, they will perish. Because the Messiah will return to Earth to set up His judgment throne. Not in Washington, nor in Rome. But in the city of the Jewish King David.
