Amidst all the outrage about veteran journalist Helen Thomas
intemperately saying what so many on the left, including many Jews, feel
but more politely say - "The Jews should get the hell out of Palestine"

Al Jazeera offers thoughtful analysis here on the sea change in public opinion that Thomas
represents.
