Helen Thomas: Words of Wisdom

Posted by feww on June 8, 2010

Quote of the Century:

“Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine”

“Tell them to get the hell out of Palestine … Remember these people are occupied, and its their land; not Germans’, it’s not Poland’s.”

Israelis should “go home” to “Poland,” “Germany” and  America and everywhere else …


Helen Thomas turned 89 on Aug. 4, 2009.

Thomas, 89, the longest-serving reporter in the White House, was forced to resign.

“Helen Thomas announced Monday that she is retiring, effective immediately,” Hearst news reported.

“Her decision came after her controversial comments about Israel and the Palestinians were captured on videotape and widely disseminated on the internet.”

Are You Allowed to Live Free of Toxic Pollution?

Posted by feww on July 25, 2008

The Right to Live Free of Toxic Pollution Must Be Made A Fundamental Human Right!

Of nearly 90,000 chemical compounds in use, the majority of which have never been tested for health effects, only a fraction are registered and of those only a handful have been banned by EPA in the last thirty years. Meanwhile, about 2,000 new chemicals are introduced each year.
