What's the matter - did it offend Helen Thomas?

Right-wing D.C. think tank spawns Israeli PR blunder

“We think this is an important Israeli contribution to the discussion of recent events,” the Center for Security Policy's Caroline Glick wrote on her Web site Friday, touting a video mocking Monday night's deadly flotilla incident, “and we hope you distribute it far and wide.”

Evidently Israeli media-relations officials took Glick's advice -- and set off a public relations backlash.

We Con the World,” a parody of the 1985 Michael Jackson-Lionel Ritchie video…

My sympathies obviously lie with Israel so I think it’s rather well done. No back lash here.

Side Note: And when you saw this; Helen Thomas agrees to bow out as commencement speaker at Walt Whitman High, was your first reaction like mine: “why was she even invited?”
