    DETROIT | Helen Thomas said Thursday that she stands by her comments about Israel she made earlier this year that led to her resignation as a national columnist.

    And she went further, saying that Zionists control U.S. foreign policy and other institutions. The local Jewish community condemned her remarks.

    In an interview, Thomas, 90, said that criticizing Israel led to her resignation and ostracism in Washington.

    “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.”

    Thomas, a longtime White House correspondent who grew up in Detroit as the daughter of Lebanese immigrants, was in Dearborn for a workshop on anti-Arab bias.

    In a speech inside a center in Dearborn, she talked about “the whole question of money involved in politics.”

    “Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists. No question, in my opinion,” she said. “They put their money where their mouth is. We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.” :clap2:

    Jewish groups have called Thomas’ earlier remarks unfair and bigoted. They slammed Thursday’s remarks as well.

    Helen Thomas is irrelevant. I give her 2 - 3 years tops.

    Who cares what she says? She's a bitter old woman who thinks Jews should return to their own countries. Fucking stupid woman.

    Helen Thomas hates Jews.

    Therefore Jews are the root of all evil in what passes for her mind.

    Woman has serious problems and should go to nearest old age home and finish vegging.

    Helen Thomas is a POS.

    And, she should be known for being a POS.

    It is good that POSs are recognized for being POSs....no matter how significant or insignificant.

    I dont hate jewish people and have jewish people in my family.

    I do think the country of Isreal has too much influence on our foreign policy.

    I also have disagreed with the actions of the Isreali goverment at times.

    If Isreal is above reproach and America isnt then you love Isreal more than America.

    I love America more than any other country INCLUDING Isreal.

    I would still find fault with America when it does wrong.

    Why not the same level of scrutiny for Isreal?
