And yet, there she’ll be in the front row of the next White House press conference:

White House press corps dean Helen Thomas — on the day that the White House hosted a Jewish Heritage Celebration, no less — said that Jews who live in Israel should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go “home.”

When asked where home was for Israeli Jews, Thomas offered “Poland, Germany… and America and everywhere else” that the founding generation of the State of Israel originally hailed.

Just think what she’d say if she wasn’t clinging to her unbiased journalistic instincts.

Click play if you dare — just looking at the still can haunt your dreams:

Update: Thomas issues a statement of regret for what she said.

From Allahpundit:

I’m satisfied. Who among us hasn’t innocently stumbled into a statement of support for ethnic cleansing when we didn’t really mean it?

Well…

Helen Thomas has become one of those octogenarian dinner guests soiling themselves at the table in ever increasing amounts who nobody has the guts to lock in the bathroom.
