Muslims Honor Helen Thomas Some More

Helen Thomas’s long career in journalistic moonbattery is over, but she’s not done collecting kudos from her admirers.

Having received a “Courage in Journalism” award from the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, former White House correspondent Helen Thomas is now scheduled to be honored by an Arab group whose executive director had his home raided by the FBI because of his alleged ties to terrorist groups.

On December 12, the Arab American Action Network (AAAN) is featuring a speech by Thomas, who has been called the Arab American Dean of the White House Press Corps, as part of its 15th anniversary fundraising event.

The Arab American National Museum, based in Dearborn, Michigan, is currently raising funds for a Helen Thomas Sculpture Project, in order to create a sculpture honoring Thomas. The Arab American National Museum is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. [The Smithsonian receives about 80% of its funding from the federal government — i.e., from you.]

But plans to honor Thomas — and questions about how she should be treated in the history of journalism in the U.S. — have become increasingly controversial because of the questions surrounding the AAAN and its executive director, Hatem Abudayyeh. His home was raided on September 24 as part of an FBI investigation into illegal support provided by U.S.-based groups to foreign terrorist organizations in the Middle East and Latin America.

Incredibly, the raid followed a friendly visit to the White House by Abudayyeh earlier this year.

Considering the circles the Manchurian Moonbat moves in, which include terrorists like Bill Ayers and AAAN founder Rashid Khalidi, maybe this isn’t so incredible after all.

Readers will recall that the kibosh was finally put on Thomas’s disgraceful career when she publicly called for Jews to be deported from their homeland to the site of the Holocaust.

Prominent among her accomplishments,

During the Bush Administration years, Thomas became known for Bush-bashing and her sleazy technique of making accusations disguised as questions at news conferences and briefings. She became the poster girl of liberal media bias, serving to discredit the notion of a professional and objective press corps.

Thomas now works as “a full-time advocate for the Arab/Muslim cause” — as opposed to only doing it three quarters of the time as a member of the “mainstream” media.
