    The number of Jews that were actually born in Europe that still or now live in Israel is quite small. There are millions of Sephardic Jews who either were born in Arab countries or are descendants of such people. They cannot return because Arabs, that Helen feels are so deserving, expelled them, they are not welcome to return, cannot even own property, and would be persecuted. What about the descendants of the European Jews? Setting, all that aside, Helen, who has a conviction that she is a hero, had all this information for decades. Why, exactly did she sit on it? Was she in the pocket of the rich Jews, including the movie stars and the controlling Jewish financiers? Frankly, if she were right about the influence of Jews, they must be doing a terrible job. And the other point is that she is dismissive and insulting of members of Congress and Government, whose support of Israel is not based on principle, but only the $/influence of those overwhelming totally powerful Jews. Helen, has lost it. She should get together with Charlie Sheen and develop a peace plan for the world. What a schmendrick!
