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.
