This is both sad and tragic on many levels. Helen Thomas beclowns herself.
Then she issues this half-baked, canned apology.
“I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians.They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”
Sorry Helen, but the bell cannot be unrung.
Would someone tell Helen Thomas that her 15 minutes are up?
