This diary is mostly about the smear campaign aimed at Helen Thomas and how right wing propaganda easily mixes with Israeli propaganda. It is a story that people would label me as crazy if I didn't ...

There is great sadness at the end of Helen Thomas's long and valuable career. Her nasty comments allowed her critics their final moment of triumph. As if all the good she had done, speaking truth to ...

What Helen Thomas said was insensitive and mean. There is no excuse for it. Criticizing her for her tirade is valid. But the attacks coming now are completely off base and equally deranged. In ...

I do not know where to start. I have a great many conflicting views. There are no easy answers. Many early immigrants, not all, came to the US to avoid religious persecution. JFK was the first ...

Dear Mr. President, Helen Thomas's remarks were offensive to many people. I don't think there is any one, including Ms. Thomas, who would deny that. Her remarks have inspired more ...

Listen, I don't agree with Helen Thomas' position that Israelis should leave Israel. However, there is nothing she said that should have deserved public shaming. From an objective point of view ...
