    I have met Helen Thomas and I love her. True, she is getting a little old, but what she said without tact is what really needs doing: making Palestine equal with Israel in terms of respect. If we keep knocking down Muslim and building up Jewish, we will have more trouble with the future. I’m for support of the Jewish people, but when we stop humanitarian aid and force the Palestinian people to live in the depths of poverty, blocking the Jordan River and their access to water, having good roads stop at the West Bank, and in many ways telling a whole group of people that they don’t count, I’m with Helen.

    Carol, this part of your comment strikes me hard, “many ways telling a whole group of people that they don’t count”. I believe in the humanitarian efforts but we must not forget our own these days. I see little priority given right here at home as this political season heats up.

    Telling a whole group of people that they don’t count, is exactly what our government is doing by cutting off the unemployed Cobra and UI extensions! By no fault of our own have we lost millions of jobs, putting these millions of people into poverty with no jobs programs to re-start this economy. How can we take care of others if we can’t even take care of our own society?
