Disgraced Anti-Semite Journalist Helen Thomas Honored By Palestinian Liberation Organization

The Society of Professional Journalists's lifetime achievement award that was named in her honor has been "retired" but Helen "Thank God for Hezbollah" Thomas can console herself with her latest trophy: high praise from the Palestinian Liberation Organization.

The former Hearst syndicated columnist was reportedly feted by the "top Palestinian envoy to the U.S... at his Washington residence." Palestinian legislator (and former girlfriend of the late Peter Jennings) Hanan Ashrawi reportedly presented Thomas with an award on Sunday.

You may recall that Thomas was pushed out of her comfortable perch as a Hearst syndicate columnist after a video went viral in June 2010 wherein she is seen telling a rabbi visiting the White House that Jews in Israel should just "go home" to the countries from which they emigrated.
