I greatly admire Helen Thomas...always have and always will....University Cancels "Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity in the Media" Award; Remarks on Palestinians, Zionism, brought 'negative light' to honor, official says
DETROIT - Wayne State University said Friday it will no longer offer an award named in honor of one of its most famous alumni, former White House press corps member Helen Thomas.
The Helen Thomas Spirit of Diversity in the Media award has been retired because of controversial remarks Thomas, an Arab-American, made at a conference Thursday in Dearborn and earlier this year, school officials said.
“I paid a price, but it’s worth it to speak the truth,” former White House reporter Helen Thomas said Thursday about her controversial comment about Israeli Jews. (Robin Buckson / The Detroit News)Thomas said at a diversity conference that "Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by Zionists. No question, in my opinion."THIS COMMENT AT THE LINK IS PRICELESS:
Could someone please inform Ms. Kellman that Palestinians along with Middle East Arabs are Semitic People?
Cheers for Ms. Helen Thomas for still speaking truth to power!
