Hamas Eulogizes Helen Thomas: ‘We Respect You for Taking a Stand’

It’s not often on NRO that we link to Hamas’s website — but how could we pass up the touching eulogy paid by the terrorist group’s military wing, the Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades, to journalist Helen Thomas, who died on Saturday at 92?

TheBlaze managed to capture a screenshot of the memorial as it appeared on the site’s homepage. Thomas is pictured at a podium next to the words, “Rest in peace, Helen Thomas. We respect you for taking a stand.”
