It was like a witch hunt, the way everyone seemed to go after Helen Thomas, to force her to retire in 2010.
But all she did was speak Truth.
She said Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home,” in a conversation with Rabbi David Nesenoff captured on video on May 27, 2010.
Jews, i.e, the illegal Jewish settlers, should all get the hell out of Palestine, i.e., the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
Their presence there violates the Fourth Geneva Convention.
Their presence there is a war crime.
We have the International Court of Justice, the highest court in our world, confirming that the settlers live in the Occupied Palestinian Territories in violation of international law.
I admire Helen Thomas for not being afraid to speak Truth, to speak an uncomfortable truth to a world that cannot handle Truth.
Just think a moment of the ones who came before her, doing as she did.
We have the Prophet Isaiah, he spoke of the Injustices of his own people to the Jewish people.
Isaiah 1:16 “Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes; cease to do evil.”
King Manasseh had the Prophet Isaiah killed, two rabinnic traditions describe how he was killed; in both cases he was ordered sawn in two by King (of Judah) Manesseh while in a cedar tree. This act is referenced in Hebrews 11:27.
Jesus was the Truth, the Life, and the Way.
Jews had him killed for that. Luke 22 and Luke 23.
