Veteran journalist Helen Thomas sat down with Playboy to discuss her feelings about Israel and what got her fired last year. The downward spiral for Thomas began last year when she was interviewed in front of the White House and made some controversial remarks that went viral. 

Thomas told Playboy that she doesn't regret her words:

PLAYBOY: Take us back to the White House courtyard on May 27 when Rabbi David Nesenoff pointed his camera at you and asked for your comments on Israel.

*THOMAS: He pulled that thing out like a jackknife. I mean, he started out very nice, introducing me to these two young boys who wanted to be in journalism. He said, "Got any advice? Go for it." I didn't know it was Jewish Heritage Month, which is why he was at the White House and also why he asked "So what do you think of Israel?" That's when I said, "They should get the hell out of Palestine."

PLAYBOY: Did you realize how controversial those words were as you spoke them?

*THOMAS: I knew I'd hit the third rail. You cannot say anything about Israel in this country. But I've lived with this cause for many years. Everybody knows my feelings that the Palestinians have been shortchanged in every way. Sure, the Israelis have a right to exist—but where they were born, not to come and take someone else's home.

I've had it up to here with the violations against the Palestinians. Why shouldn't I say it? I knew exactly what I was doing—I was going for broke. I had reached the point of no return. You finally get fed up.

Well I'm glad that she cleared that up.

Thomas also accused Obama of pushing a conservative agenda:

*THOMAS: They don't know how intense the pressure from different special interests is on the president and congressmen. Politicians more often than not give in to that pressure. These elected officials are supposed to be doing what we want them to do. But I suppose that's the reason we have the Tea Party.

People are unhappy. The trouble is, swinging to the right is always dangerous. We end up losing so much in the rush to conservatism. But even Obama has fallen down that hole. He's pushing a conservative agenda.

PLAYBOY: The right doesn't see Obama that way. How is Obama conservative?

Look at Guantánamo. With a stroke of a pen, the day after Obama took the oath he should have said, "We're getting the hell out of here." Same thing with Iraq and Afghanistan. There's no reason for us to be in a war. "They'll all come here if we don't go there." That is baloney. Go halfway around the world to kill and die? Why?

Now the veterans can't get jobs. I see stories every day about soldiers being liberated from Iraq only to end up unemployed. Where is Obama? How can he continue these Bush policies that were so mean and rotten and unjust?

People had this impression that Obama would be a peaceful president, but there he is, as hawkish as any of them. And Hillary Clinton is no liberal either. She put out the word to "capture or kill" for Afghanistan. What would she do that for, really? Capture or kill? What does this mean?

I thought, naively perhaps, that she and Obama would bring change, that they would be different. I assumed wrongly that they would be liberal because he's black and she's a woman. It's maddening.

I thought liberals were against racial profiling.

Thomas went on to talk about the Jewish control of the White House:

PLAYBOY: In America you're talking about a relatively small community. Jews make up roughly two percent of the U.S. population. On a worldwide level, the percentage is well under one percent. Those numbers don't exactly spell domination.

*THOMAS: I get where you're leading with this. You know damn well the power they have. It isn't the two percent. It's real power when you own the White House, when you own these other places in terms of your political persuasion. Of course they have power. You don't deny that. You're Jewish, aren't you?

If Thomas thought that doing this interview would help her cause then she is truly delusional.

While she claims that she loves Jews she goes out of her way to criticize them and makes it seem that Jewish reporters have it out for her and just want to make her look bad.

The reality is that they don't have to try because Thomas is single handedly doing it for them by continuing to make anti-Jewish and anti-Israel remarks.

Thomas has shown that she is nothing more than a bitter old woman who can't face the fact that she was fired last year because of her own actions and not some Zionist conspiracy and that's why she finds herself now working largely in obscurity.
