Helen Thomas on Her Resignation, the Middle East, Israel and Jews

Paul Jay, who is Jewish and a dual citizen of Canada and the U.S., interviews Helen Thomas, whose parents were Christian Lebanese immigrants to the U.S. She lost her job in the White House press corps over remarks she made to a rabbi about Israel and the occupied territories. She says, "There's no real freedom of speech in this country if you mention Israel."
