To the editor:
The letters regarding Helen Thomas in the Sunday, December 12 Free Press were very frightening because of the blatant anti-Semitism and excuses for Helen Thomas’ shameless attacks on Israel and Jews.
One-letter skirts around Thomas’ unashamed hate with “… Thomas' principled accomplishments over a lengthy period of time stand above the questionable, politically motivated attempts to dismiss her and diminish all the good that she represents.” Excuse me; what good does she represent except to those that gave her a standing ovation during her anti-Jewish, anti-Israel rant?
Another letter glosses over the bigotry that is alive and well with “She has been out in this world much more than a normal person, and she has been exposed to many more things than the average American, so she just may know more than many” Does her age and experience allow her to revile Jews to an adoring crowd?
Another “I have traveled to Israel and the West Bank, and what I witnessed was an anathema to my American values.” Rather than generalities like “anathema to my American values” let’s see the writer’s examples of an "anathema to my American values" in another letter and while he is at it some examples of the incessant anti-Jewish and Anti-Christian media and school frenzy in the West Bank, Gaza, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab world that encourages Arab children to murder Jewish and Christian children.
These letters didn’t disguise the letter writers feelings. It wasn’t undercover – it was blatant anti-Semitism of the first order right there for all to see. Joseph Goebbels must be smiling.
