ADL Not Happy with Helen Thomas Apology


Helen Thomas’s statement of regret does not go far enough.  Her remarks were outrageous, offensive and inappropriate, especially since she uttered them on a day the White House had set aside to celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments of American Jews during Jewish America Heritage Month. Her suggestion that Israelis should go back to Poland and Germany is bigoted and shows a profound ignorance of history.  We believe Thomas needs to make a more forceful and sincere apology for the pain her remarks have caused.
