Council on American-Islamic Relations and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee to Honor Helen Thomas

When I first read this, I thought it was someone's idea of satire.

It isn't.

I'm not kidding. They're really doing it.

The people who consistently scream about Islamophobia and negative perceptions about Muslims in the media are going to honor the former White House press corps correspondent best known for saying all the Jews in Israel should go back to Poland and Germany.

"The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee announced Tuesday it is throwing a gala in honor of Thomas, the second major event she will headline only months after being forced to leave her post for making comments that some found to be anti-Semitic."

"Thomas will also speak to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which is bestowing its lifetime achievement award on her at a fundraiser in October. "

I'm not sure what the fundraiser is for exactly. Maybe to help with the introduction of Shaira Law in America or for a new printing of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion to be distributed to schools in Lebanon and Gaza?

I wonder if the event will be attended by Canada's own Helen Thomas, Deputy Leader of the New Democratic Party,  Libby Davies?
