Rosie Defends Helen Thomas

Rosie Defends Helen Thomas


Rosie O'Donnell defended Helen Thomas on her Sirius satellite radio show Wednesday, saying the longtime journalist's comments weren't as offensive as people suggest they were.

Thomas retired from her job as a White House correspondent for Hearst after saying that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go to Germany, Poland, or the United States.

"Now, I think, in the year 2010, what she was saying was not, 'Go back to the ovens,' O'Donnell said. "What she was saying was, the homeland was originally Palestinians' and it's now occupied by Israel, and Palestinians should be afforded human and civil rights."
