Helen Thomas tells the Jews to get out of Israel and go home. Home she says, is Germany, Poland, America and everywhere else. The Jews belong everywhere else, but not in Israel.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQcQdWBqt14&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0&border=1%5D
Helen is a staunch Democrat. The specifics of her comment are simply stupid but the sentiment is widely shared by Democrats. It is one of the great enigmas of our times, why Jews overwhelmingly vote with liberal Democrats. No less a figure than Norman Podhoretz has attempted to explain it. In fact he wrote an entire book on that one puzzling question, Why are Jews Liberals? The best he could do is to propose some possibilities and offer a weakly supported opinion.
