Well... who didn't see this coming (h/t allahpundit):
"Respected American journalist Helen Thomas's answer shows ... a courageous, bold, honest and free opinion which expresses what people across the globe believe: that Israel is a racist state of murderers and thugs," Hezbollah MP Hussein Moussawi said in a statement.Can we end any absurd debate about whether or not Helen Thomas's remarks were anti-semitic? I mean if you share Hezbollah's view about how the Jews can get the hell out of Palestine how are you not an anti-semite? And, of course, Helen Thomas and Hezbollah have been on the same page for quite some time now.
So, again, this really shouldn't be much of a surprise to anybody.
