as to whether anyone has asked Helen Thomas if her remarks referred to Israel or to Palestine. If Israel, she was dead wrong to say something so nasty. If, however, she was referring to Palestine as in the West Bank and Gaza, she was well within her rights. There are many who object to European and Russian Jews moving into settlements in what is legally disputed territory. I also find it interesting that the response is a recitation of the persecution Jews have suffered throughout history, with the culminating thesis that everyone hates the Jews. There is no denying history, but the world has moved ahead in many ways. There is no reason to assume that anti-Israel sentiment is more than that. Such paranoia and victimhood is unwarranted and unattractive.
