Helen Thomas, Unrepentant

Ninety-year-old Helen Thomas gave a speech at the eighth annual "Images and Perceptions of Arab Americans" conference in Detroit yesterday. Before her talk, she spoke with reporters about her infamous suggestion that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go "home" to Germany, Poland and the U.S.:

I stand by it. I told the truth," the 90-year-old Thomas told reporters.... "I paid a price but it's worth it to speak the truth."

But Thomas was just getting warmed up. This is what she had to say in her speech:

"Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists," Thomas said. "No question." ...

"I can call the president of the United States anything in the book but I can't touch Israel," she said.

Yes, that must be frustrating for her.

The Associated Press actually covered for Thomas by mischaracterizing the comments that got her fired by Hearst:

Her speech followed her resignation from Hearst Newspapers in June, after she told an interviewer that Jews should "get the hell out" of the Palestinian territories and go to Germany, Poland or the United States.

The AP just volunteered that part about the "Palestinian territories." If you listen to Thomas saying the Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine," it is obvious that she is using "Palestine" in the Arab sense to mean Israel. If she had merely meant that Jews should get out of the West Bank, she would have said they should go home to Israel.

The AP reports that Thomas received a standing ovation at the "Images and Perceptions of Arab Americans" conference. Yesterday was a big day for her; she was also "the guest of honor at the Arab American National Museum, where a sculpture of her was unveiled during a private reception."

Hmmm.


I'm starting to believe him, not because I think he's genuinely indifferent to which country's information it is that he's freeing but because he seems like enough of an egomaniac to maybe develop a full-blown messianic complex from all this media attention. (Per the first link, he's got the editor of Time magazine hanging breathlessly [...]

Jimmy Carter Drops by the White House to Offer Advice

Michelle Malkin

**Written by Doug Powers

Does Jimmy Carter offering advice to the Obama administration have a "1962 New York Mets mentoring the 2010 Pittsburgh Pirates" feel to it, or is it just me?

The topic was national security, so we can only hope that Carter stopped by to serve as an example of what not to do. But unfortunately, I doubt it:

Former President Jimmy Carter returned to the White House on Tuesday for the first time since President Obama took office.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said Mr. Carter had come to meet with the national security adviser, Thomas E. Donilon, and Mr. Obama asked him to drop by.

I feel safer already. The president who got a smooch from Leonid Brezhnev, was BFFs with Arafat, delivers FTD Pick-Me-Up Bouquets to Hamas and buddies up with Castro is bending White House ears on national security:

(matching shirts… awww)

null

Carter no doubt left the White House having alerted Donilon to the real threat to freedom and civility in the world: Americans who disagree with Obama.

Mercury ‘Turns’ Wetland Birds Homosexual

Victoria Gill reports for the  BBC:

Mercury affects the behaviour of white ibises by "turning them homosexual", with higher doses resulting in males being more likely to pair with males.

Scientists in Florida and Sri Lanka studied the effect of mercury in the birds' diet. Their aim was to find out why it reduced the ibises' breeding.

Mercury pollution can come from burning coal and waste, and run-off from mines.

The report, in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, shows that wetland birds are particularly badly affected by it.

Although the researchers already knew that eating mercury-contaminated food could affect an animal's development, they were surprised by the "strange" results of this experiment.

"We knew mercury could depress their testosterone (male sex hormone) levels," explained Dr Peter Frederick from the University of Florida, who led the study. "But we didn't expect this."

Spanish Woman Claims Ownership of the Sun

Spanish Woman Claims Ownership of the Sun

SunReports the AFP via Google News:


MADRID— After billions of years the Sun finally has an owner — a woman from Spain's soggy region of Galicia said Friday she had registered the star at a local notary public as being her property.


Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our Solar System.


There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.


"There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."


The document issued by the notary public declares Duran to be the "owner of the Sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the centre of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometres".
