Statement on Helen Thomas BY EDWARD I. KOCH

Koch_EdwardIrving-standing  Goodbye, Ms. Thomas.  You Have Disgraced Yourself.

Helen Thomas, 89, who is of Lebanese descent, claims to be a professional journalist.  As such, she is subject to professional standards.  Her statement that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go back to "Poland and Germany" is clear evidence that she is no longer in control of her emotions and cognitive powers and that she cannot carry out the impartial obligations of a journalist.  She has disgraced herself.

Jews have lived in the area known in modern times as the British Mandate of Palestine, for thousands of years and up to the present time. Indeed, Israelite civilization goes back to the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as well as to King David and King Solomon.  We Jews spring from the loins of those patriarchs.  The State of Israel sits where the Jewish Kingdoms of Judea and Israel reigned thousands of years ago.

Ms. Thomas has embarrassed not only herself, but also her employer, Hearst News Service, as well as her colleagues who attend the White House press conferences with her.  Her apology is hollow, unbelievable and unacceptable.  She would do everyone a favor by leaving the stage.  Goodbye, Ms. Thomas.

  1. You have like myself a problem with his liberal political positions, like I do 49.9 percent of the time, thats okay but Ed Koch was a great mayor for NYC and he is a great defender of Jews.He doesn’t deserve the personal insults in regard to his age.

  2. There are many other causes for war besides religion;Ethnicity-Wealth-Territorial Expansion-Political Ideology Impositioning(Fascism,Communism)

  3. Religion is the cause of all of the troubles in the world. Without religion we would live in peace as humans on the same planet. Religion tends to make us think we are different from each other. We are the same. Take away religion and we will all live in peace. Religion causes the rift between peoples of different countries.
