    Yes Helen Thomas, I am a Jew and I control the White House. I do make $45,000/year salary, but do not let my meager salary fool you. I use my Jew-di mind trick to control President Obama and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Yodah has taught me well. He was Jewish, you know? Helen Thomas is absurd. She claims she is not anti-semitic because Jews are not semitic. What about 1,000,000+ Jews in Israel who are from Lybia, Tunisia, Algeria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Yemen, Turkey, Egypt, etc.? Incidentally, most Jews from these countries were either forced out, or were subjected to laws (ie. Nasser's Egypt) that more of less gave them no other choice but to leave. And to suggest that Jews from Eastern Europe had nothing to fear in Europe after the Holocaust is, to say the least, insensitive. Perhaps she should read up on, and inform herself about, the persecution of Jews in Europe after the Holocaust (ie. Kielce Pogrom).
