    Sara, If a 90 year old lady is Israel's problem it has no problems. Just what Israel needs after the flotilla slaughter --- a sideshow, a mouthy journalist, so that friends of Israel can cloak themselves once again in the guise of victim, of the persecuted one. Victim of what, now, in 2010? A racist old Lebanese lady? Does Helen Thomas really scare you? Your version of history makes it sound as if the Arabs refused to share the land with the Jews. The way things have turned out, it is the Jews that do not want to share the land with anybody except Jews. Israelis don't want to go back to Europe. Fair enough. The Europeans certainly did little to make Jews feel welcome. But why did you have to conquer the Holy Land, and then drive out so many of the Muslims and the Christians, and destroy their cities and villages? Why was it necessary for you to pretend that only Jews had ever been there? In 1935 your biggest threat was Hitler, but the Brits and the Americans were not much help either. Today ... Helen Thomas. If we can snap our fingers and punish every nasty old critic of Jews, are you willing to do the same thing and silence all the Jewish journalists, and Jewish politicians who continuously say nasty things about Palestinians and Arabs and Muslims?

Boycott is the only way to stop the Israeli occupation
