JNS.org – Former White House correspondent Helen Thomas, who in a 2010 interview said Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine,” died Saturday at 92.

Thomas also told rabbilive.com in the 2010 interview that Jews should “go home, to Poland and Germany, America and everywhere else.” She later said, “I deeply regret the comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”

The aftermath of Thomas’s anti-Israel remarks prompted her to retire, a move President Barack Obama called “the right decision.” Thomas had reported on every U.S. president from John F. Kennedy to Obama.

    I would like to be charitable & think that she simply went senile towards the end.

    Well, at least she know’s now who’s the boss and that He is the G’d of Israel and the jews. Unfortunately the chances are very high, that she’s there where she wished us to be. Sad ending. She knew many presidents, but she didn’t know the King of Kings.

    One has to know when the dance is at an end and it’s time to sit down. Death has a way of making it clear.
