(NEWS) Helen Thomas Blames Israel In New Interview

"Veteran journalist Helen Thomas, 90, gave an interview that aired Wednesday, her first since resigning in June due to backlash over her statement that Jews should 'get the hell out of Palestine.' Thomas stood by her remarks, and accused 'them' – apparently a reference to Israelis – of distorting her remarks.

Thomas defended the statements she made in June, which included a demand that Israeli Jews 'go home' to Poland, Germany and America.

The statements were 'exactly what I thought,' she told radio interviewer Scott Spears. She added, 'I hit the third rail. You cannot criticize Israel in this country and survive.'"
