The Wicked Witch of the Press, HELEN “Jews should get the Hell out of Palestine” THOMAS will be honored with a statue at the Arab-American National Museum in Dearbornistan, MI.
Supporters of the initiative in Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit and the town with the second largest Arab community in the United States, are trying to raise money to have the copper statue constructed and put in the local museum. (Copper? She’s already a fossil, just paint her)
But Thomas’ remarks that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to Poland and Germany, which abruptly ended her 67-year-career, are not helping the cause.
“There are people who don’t want to donate because of it,” said Anan Ameri, the Arab American National Museum’s director. According to museum sources, some $30,000 is needed to have the statue erected.
Thomas, who will be turning 90 on Wednesday, is a member of the museum’s advisory board, and the museum has launched a 45-day online campaign to gather the remaining $10,000 that is needed to erect the statue, which is being constructed by former news photographer and sculptor Susan McElhinney.
Despite the difficulties in raising funds, unexpected support of the initiative came from President of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Metropolitan Detroit Richard Nodel, who expressed “hope that the support for this memorial is there despite her anti-Israel and anti-Semitic views and not because of them.” (Stupid self-hating Jew. Dhimmi Bloomberg, move over)
Meanwhile several other Jewish leaders are pressuring Wayne State University to remove Helen Thomas’ name from its annual diversity award. YNET NEWS
