Some Perspective on the Helen Thomas Stoning

In 2008 Israeli Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger called for a final solution ethnic/religious cleansing of Gaza saying its inhabitants should be moved to the Sinai Desert where a state would be built for them paid for by Britain, the European Union and the United States. News report and video here:

Israeli Chief Rabbi Calls For Religious/Ethnic Cleansing

In 2010 Helen Thomas said that Judaic people should leave land they unjustly forced Palestinians from and return to their homes in Poland, Germany the U.S. and elsewhere.

In 2008 Chief Rabbi Metzger thanked G.W. Bush for his support of "Israel" and in particular for waging an unjust war against Iraq. News report here:

Helen Thomas has consistently opposed the unjust, catastrophic war on Iraq.

Chief Rabbi Metzger still wields power and influence to perpetrate injustice. Helen Thomas has been fired and ostracized for standing for justice.

If we don't stand for those who stand for justice when they're attacked we deserve no better than this: a world enslaved by crushing rabbinic double standards and hypocrisy. I can't imagine what encourages the rabbis more than for us to flee in cowardice as they stone our most courageous people.

Cashiering Helen Thomas

By Ralph Nader

Although the behind the scenes story has yet to come out, the evisceration was launched by two pro-Israeli war hawks, Ari Fleischer and Lanny Davis.
