Exclusive: Helen Thomas’s Rabbi- Interviewer Speaks

By Roger Friedman

hollywoodnews.com: The rabbi-journalist who got the explosive interview with veteran reporter Helen Thomas spoke to me tonight exclusively.

Rabbi David Nesenoff is a journalist and filmmaker from Long Island who has his advanced degree from the Jewish Theological Seminar. He went to the White House on May 27th with his 17 year old son and the son’s 18 year old friend on a press pass. Both boys as well as the Rabbi wore yarmulkes and tsi-zit. They were obviously religious Jews.

And that’s what shocked Nesenoff when Helen Thomas told him — as he filmed her on his Flip camera– the Jews should “get the hell out” of Israel and go “home” to Poland or Germany–places they’d been tortured and killed in, and escaped from during the Holocaust.

“There’s anti-Semitism in the world,” Nesenoff told me. “And it’s sitting a foot from the president.”

Nesenoff says he isn’t aligned with any political party or ideology. He’s basically pro-Israel and is happy to meet any politician who agrees with him. Thomas surprised him, he says, because she knew who she was talking to. “She must have felt comfortable to just tell us how she felt.”

“It was shocking,” he said. The reason it took a week or more to post the video interview on his site, www.RabbiLive.com, or YouTube? “My 17 year old son is my webmaster and this week was finals,” he laughs. “So we had to wait.”

Nesenoff says there’s a little more that he’ll post, including a conversation with Thomas on the state of journalism. Once she made her “Poland” remarks, Nesenoff says there wasn’t much time to respond. Thomas was whisked away by a helper or page.

The Rabbi, by the way, has credentials: one film he worked on went to Sundance a few years ago, another garnered several prizes. A few years ago Nesenoff worked for the U.S. Department of Justice as an intervention consultant on a famous racial hate crimes case with Denny’s.

    What can you expect, her parents are Lebanese!

    There is nothing anti-semitic about what Helen Thomas said.

    It’s one thing if Jews move from Europe to Israel. It’s quite another if they are allowed to do so while Israel still denies the right of return to the several hundred thousand Palestinians displaced in war. There is a right of return in international law and it refers to immediate blood descendants(children), NOT people of the same religion who claim a distant ancestral bond to a place. Indirect ancestry has zero standing in international law.

    One thing Israel and her supporters never seem to get is that nations belong to their citizens and not to religious groups.

    If Germany does not belong to the Aryan tribe and India does not belong to Hindus, then Israel does not belong to Jews. Each of them just belongs to its citizens.

    When you die your house and property goes to your next of kin, not to your religion or race. Same thing with countries. They are inherited by next of kin, not by a religious or ethnic groups. Like Italy belongs to Italians, Israel should belong to Israelis, and not Jews, who are only a subset of Israelis(20% of Israelis are non-Jewish).

    It doesn’t matter where you can trace your ancestry back to. Many of us can trace our ancestry back to several countries. Does that means we all get to be citizens of all those countries?All humanity can trace its roots to Africa. Do we all get to move there?

    Countries belong to their citizens, not to religions. If the citizens of a country change or abandon their religion, their previous religious cohorts from somewhere else can’t kick them out. There is no sane way to define democracy when the religious character of a state is hard-coded into a country’s identity.

    Leo, not all Jews in Israel are from Europe. Many were in Israel when the British were there. Many are from Middle Eastern and North African countries, and they were either forced out or discriminated against so heavily that they had to leave. Thomas wanted “the Jews” to leave. You think she really only meant the “German” and “Polish” ones? Or is she too stupid to actually know anything about Israel.?

    Frankly, given what the middle eastern states have done to the Jews who used to be their citizens, they can take in any “oppressed” Palestinians they feel aren’t getting what they deserve to make up for it. Of course, that isn’t happening, is it?

  • June 6, 2010 | Permalink |

    The most insulting thing about Leo’s comment is that it lacks even a single thread of historical accuracy. He feels so comfortable in his self-indulgent drivel that it makes me kind of sad about the state of history classes in this country.

    Just two quick notes: The first of which is that every single country surrounding Israel belongs to a RELIGIOUS group and not to a citizenry. The citizens are only as good as the laws they establish or are forced to comply with. Israel is a country of Jews, just as Jordan, Egypt, and Lebanon are Muslim countries. Most of Europe for the past few millennia was divided amongst Catholicism, Protestantism, and Islam. All of Latin America is split amongst various Catholic countries. I feel too ashamed to continue. It is embarrassing that this must be explained to somebody standing on a Soap Box (Leo) and ranting about a Jewish country surrounded by antagonistic Muslim nations, and neighboring anti-semitic sympathizing European nations, as well as Russia.

    I have an idea Leo. Correct those issues first and then the LONE Jewish nation can rest easy.

    Second point: Israel was an ancient land of the Jews long before there was such a thing as Islam. The Jews were forced out or killed by Romans, causing a Diaspora. In 1948, they were granted a right to return after centuries of existence as subservient citizens to mostly Christian and Muslim nations. In 1948, Israeli leaders pleaded with surrounding Palestinian populations that they were more than entitled to stay within the land of Israel. Palestinian leaders, who had STRONG and DIRECT ties to the Nazis pulled their people away into decades of poverty and bloodshed in sister Arab nations. Under Arafat the Palestinians even attempted to overthrow the Jordanian rule.

    I’m done with you Leo. You are literally too stupid to insult. Good night.

    Leo – Jews are a nation first and foremost. The Jewish nation was born at Sinai. The religion followed. You’re absolutely right, Germany does not belong to the Aryans, India does not belong to the Hindus, etc. However, Germany DOES belong to the Germans; India DOES belong to the Indians; Italy belongs to the Italians. Israel belongs to the Jews.

    That does not, however, preclude others from being citizens. 20% of Israel are non-Jews, Christians, Muslims, Druze, Beduin, Baha’i, etc.

    And another thought…if you’re against a country being “carved” out (my words) from a post-colonial world from a larger geographic area strictly on a religious basis, (which is what I think you’re against from reading your post) should Pakistan be given back to India? Bangladesh (East Pakistan)?

    Just curious…

  • June 7, 2010 | Permalink |

    David Nesenoff family immigrated to NY from the Soviet Union (Belarus) during and after the WWII Mr. Nesenoff family did not immigrate from (Palestine).

    And Grantman The Jewish is not a nation born at Sina it’s a religion or sect…saying what you said is like telling us that Pakistanis, Indonesians, Malaysians and Bosnians and many others are one nation and all came from Arabia!?? which is ridiculous.

  • June 7, 2010 | Permalink |

    I thought Jews only showed up in Israel after they left Egypt.

  • June 7, 2010 | Permalink |

    Searcher – you’ve completely conflated religion and nationality. Jews are a nation as are the Pakistanis, Indonesians, Malaysians, and Bosnians. But more specifically, the closest analogy in today’s world are the Tibetans. They are a nation with a religion, too. Tibetan Buddhism is (from what I understand) different than Indian Buddhism. They are intertwined as much as Judaism is from Jews. The Dali Lama understood this 10 or 15 years ago (maybe more) when he invited a dozen or so Jewish intellectuals to discuss the Jewish diaspora and how they kept together for 2,000 years so he could apply that to the Tibetan diaspora.

    Go learn a bit more about Judaism and Jews before you make any more silly statements.

    Leland – in a way you’re right if we take the beginning of the Jewish nation starting at Sinai. However, that doesn’t account for Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. It was Joseph who went to Egypt first (let’s not count the short time Abraham was there…that’s another story) and then his brothers followed. While they may not have been Jews, they were Israelites and believers in the One God who made promises to Abraham.

    Look, guys, the bottom line is that whether you believe it or not, Jews have been a people for 3,500 years however it’s defined. They have a historical attachment to the land on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean. Good heavens. Get over it. Jews are here and they’re here to stay.

    So how about that the Mongolians rebuild their empire and the Tatars regain their territories and other ethnic groups do the same?? Is this how people should live? The Jews were living in the Middle east peacefully before all this started(1940 or before I’m not a historian but I know than we had many in Lebanon working and living and we had Jewish friends even from Lebanon and Egypt). Why can’t they just learn to live in peace?? In my opinion they will never forget it seems what the Nazis did to them and they are determined to do it for every single person who stand in their way. The way they moved to that land whatever you will call it now: occupied territories, Israel, Palestine simply was violent. bad starts can never lead to good endings.We won’t debate here it’s their land and all this crap: which nation is living in its own land now a days?? the geography changed. we simply have to learn and respect each other and stop the HATE. I’m not against neither Jews nor any one: I’m against all the HATE between people not only of different religious groups but wake up guys we became racists for nationalities now.

    Why don’t the arabs get out of Gaza and the west bank? There is no “palestinian” nation. There never was such a “nationality”. These are arabs. Yasser Arafat himself was born in Egypt. Israel has won war after war, this land now belongs to Israel until the arabs can take it back. When The moslem world lost those wars it expelled it’s Jewish residents, they went to Israel. Israel, did not expel the arabs in the territories it conquered. It could have and it still should do so to end this nonsense.The arab societies in pre 1948 palestine could barely manage to support their populations which were only one fifth their present size. They would do no better if Israel was destroyed. Gaza and the west bank are just huge welfare communities. The Saudis have been breeding these arab populations as demographic weapons. Time to ship them off to their creators and let them deal with the problem they created.

    I’m grateful that this has been made public. Journalists that carry views and write articles with readers thinking that they are reading facts when instead they are reading editorials hidden in news stories. This practice was called colored journalism when I studied journalism. Not acceptable then and not now. More than ever we need real news reporting not the farcical dribble the press puts out every daily edition.

    Thomas is just a straight forward old journalist. She doesn’t have a history of anti Semitism. She is abrasive and shoots from the hip – but she is not evil. She never thought in setting convoys of ships to empty Israel. She was just upset what seems to be the gun ho attitude of Israel and put it in unfortunate words. She always took the side of the underdog and the Palestinians seem to be the ones – at the moment. I think there is a lot of litany and baby-crying about her comments. She should be judged the computation of the acts of her life – and people of Israel by the summation of its history, holocaust and inquisition included.

    After Germany was defeated the Jews of Poland and other Eastern European countries did return to their homes, or tried to. What happened to many on their return was that they were killed. The Europeans were intent on finishing the job that the Nazis almost finished. They found that their lives were not safe in Eastern Europe. They chose not to die. They chose to create their own country where they could decide their own fate. The British tried to keep them out but the Jews were not intimidated by this. They went to Israel anyway. The Jews did not recognize the authority of the British or anyone else over them or their fate. I don’t blame them. The arabs waged a war against the Israelis from the start, too bad for them, they lost that war. Millions of Germans were expelled from territory that now belongs to Poland after WWII,. That is the price one pays for waging a war and losing it. I do not believe for one second that the arabs would have let the Israelis stay if they had one any of those wars. They have said they would have slaughtered them all and I believe they meant and continue to mean it. Too bad for them, they lost those wars. I believe they will continue to lose. Their culture does not produce capable human beings and certainly not capable soldiers. Their culture did not produce anything in the land which is now Israel except a handful of orchards.

    tHE jEW CAN BE CONSIDERED A NATION AND A RELGION OR BOTH…..PART OF THIS NATION…WAS BOTH TAKEN AS SLAVES BY THE ROMANS (ABOUT 50,000 WERE BROUGHT BACK TO ROME, oTHERS WERE TAKEN AS SLAVES TO OTHER PARTS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. paRT OF THEIR HERITAGE WAS THAT THEY ALWAYS SAID THEY WOULD RETURN!!!! tHEY RENEWED THIS PLEGE EVERY YEAR…AND IT WAS NO SECRET TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. iT DID TAKE OVER 1500 YEARS FOR THIS TO HAPPEN

    History facts are important:

    The arab countries srounding Israel refused to the partition plan in 1947 (resolution 181 of the UN) and instead, decided to atack the new born Israel in order to liquidate the jewish state.

    Since Israel’s independenceThe arab countries dispossessed the jews living there and then displaced between 850’000 to 1’000’000 of them.

    Israel conquered the west bank when Israel’s neighbors waged war in 1967 and to their misfortune were defeated. I don’t remember the victorious countries of WW2 giving back teritories they have conquered during the war (Russia for instance)

    Proud Israeli part 1

    And I’ve added few more stuff….

    (First of all, I would like to apologize that my English is not that good :))

    that’s it, I’ve had it! , you are oblivious and ignorant! Its 3 am, but I just can’t sleep, this is much more important- where should I start?
    I’m 30 years old and I lived in Jerusalem until I was 21. My parents came from morocco to Israel when they were young in 1948, after the riots there- my grandfather had many fabric stores and they were all burned so all of my family came with nothing like many Jews from other countries and they had to start all over again. when I was 16 years old I had the “honor” to see for the very first time a terrorist attack (the second Intifada) – my two best friends were on that crowded bus to the art school and I remember that I ran to the bus because I was late and just like action or horror movie the bus exploded and collapsed in the air, there is no way I can explain the horrific scream sounds and smells I saw like body parts, a baby with no head – fun.. After one month, my neighbor was killed in our street by a terrorist with an ax, it’s a shame, she was a peace activist, only 22 years old. After 12!! 12 bombing attacks that I was saved from – and let me tell you – all of these attacks were in our streets, night clubs and restaurants in tell Aviv, schools and bus stations- never near an army base or embassy or government office. after 3 friends and one family member that died , my parents decided to leave Jerusalem and move to Ashkelon – great city , amazing beach – and that’s when the real fun started – 3000 missile in 8 years fell into sderot -near city – it’s like neighborhood in America , only half an hour by car, and then few hundreds to Ashkelon. I’m an animal activist and we had to save a lot of dogs and cats that was traumatized and ran from their homes, not to mention kids that urinate in the streets from fear, the younger kids who were 8 and less, was less afraid because they didn’t know other situation. I’m telling you all this not because I want your mercy and I’m sure that the Arabs suffered as well (I’m not calling them Palestinians because it’s not historically correct- if you will look the definition of Palestine – just open Wikipedia or any other history book, or the holly great bible- yes, the same bible you swear in courts, you will know what I’m talking about). Back to my story – before the missile in Ashkelon, I moved to tel Aviv with my boyfriend, we heard two bombing attacks near where we lived – my precious cat was panicked and jumped from the roof and died…we moved to another area in tel Aviv.. few month later our best friend had his birthday ,at that day I was on my way to work ,but before that I wanted to see the news-all of us watch the news every day ,sad habit. anyway I opened the TV and then I was confused because I thought they are showing a new action movie and a second later I started to scream to my boyfriend to see – it was real- yes the 9/11, I was shocked and couldn’t and didn’t want to believe its real -of course instead of celebrate our friends birthday, we went to light candles and pray for all America. I’m sorry but since I can remember we nursed American music, art, culture, TV shows- you are a great nation. The next day we saw on the news the crazy celebration in Gaza -outrageous! they were giving candy to the children and for them it was a festive day . I will never forget that day… again this is my personal experiences and memories. And now for some facts – I don’t hate Arabs! Even though I’m aloud to – I hate coward terrorists! I was in a friend wedding two weeks ago – she is Arab, not from Gaza, from Jerusalem, we are a lot of things but we are not racist like a lot of you in America, we cannot allow our self’s to be- we have immigrant that come to Israel from all over the world and I’m so proud when I see all of us getting along and have mixed children – Russians, Ethiopian, Argentinean, south Africans, you name it. And to call us racist is just hallucinatory. more facts for most of you who never been in Israel or Gaza and sitting in your comfortable bubble – America and Saudi Arabia and half of the world gave to the so called “Palestinian” – more than couple of billions of dollars – only in sharam el shich conference, in march 2009, minister of foreign affairs , Mrs. Clinton , obligated to pass along with more than 80 countries – 4.4 billon dollars to the Palestinian authority ,bless them, it’s not the point – do you know where all the money is ? Well I’ll tell you – in the Hamas and other terrorist fanatics groups -where do you think they have so much ammunition? You don’t believe me? Just start digging – the truth is out there- and the Palestinian people? They don’t see a dime. All of their foundations – roads, water, sewerage – we built it! Do you remember precious mess murderer Yasser arraft? The same Arafat that our prime minister Rabin and prime minister of America then, Mr. Bill Clinton, signed the “Oslo agreements” in 1993? The same agreement that the Palestinian didn’t persecuted eventually? never mind about that – after Yasser Arafat past away – his wife abandoned her own people and ran away to France with more than 300 million dollars – you can ask CBS network Leslie stahl- she investigate that – again people- facts !. Without the precious and “humanitarian” flotilla we saw last week, Israel pass just last year! – more then million tons of any supply you could dream of- oh and by the way F.Y.I-Hamas don’t want to receive the merchandise that the ships left here- its stuck and dries in the sun – god knows why – I guarantee that they don’t need it , but certainly you don’t care about the facts – facts that has happened and still happening like the situation with turkey- it was our friend and favorite tourist site for Israelis, oh and they forgot all the help we gave them during their earthquakes, until the new president of them , “dear” and “humanitarian” , Mr. Arduan that just last night invited “dear” Mr. Achmanijad, president of Iran to start making plans of war towards Israel and America- he talks with no shame of a “new world” – I wonder what that means – in Iran they give death penalty to those who are gay and cuts arms or tongs to those who steal – real modern … to some of you it’s another drama on TV and the easiest thing for you is to blame us. For us it’s a nightmare. and please stop calling us Nazi’s ,that all of you are so easily saying- it’s like the horrible “N” word that you used to say to Africans Americans not so long ago. and if you think that they want peace ,you are totally wrong -I’ve set with Arabs and they told me they will never accept and recognize two states- they want all of Israel and all of Jerusalem to them self’s- I personally would give them all of Jerusalem if I’d thought it will bring peace. most of you think it doesn’t concern you, but let me renew something to you- maybe not today, maybe in 10, 20 years from now (if Iran wont nuke all of us by then) when America, who has already so many terror nests, when they come and demand parts of your land, maybe than we will see how you will handle it.

    and as far as Helen Thomas concern – for what I know , she is not a native American like most of you aren’t, and I’m sure she doesn’t want to come back to Lebanon to wear veils and scarf’s…true journalist my ass.

    Proud Israeli girl- part 2

    I just wanted to add few more things – first of all, 95% of the Muslims all over the web react just like our friend here(posted to another blog) – alaa – “go to hell Israel, Jews you deserve to die twice a day and not once as you are dogs and not humans”. – how stupid and frustrating it is to debate with that kind of responses – although it’s funny sometimes – how the hell you can die twice in one day? and I would take dogs and live with them any day and not a person like you-which by the way, most Arabs believe that dogs are demons, that’s why most of them have no pets- that’s the main problem for me as an animal activist – just see how they treat animals in most Arab countries .one major difference between Islamic terrorism verses Islam or Jewish religion – we cherish life and they cherish death! yes, I know it sounds terrible – without telling you all the major differences of how religion is can be beautiful and wise – and I’m not a religious person by any means although I’m spiritual and do believe in the big boss above – I’m liberal and modern, have great tattoos, working as a manager in a very big music network, also I’m totally gorgeous woman, but that’s beside the point : )..
    the reason I’m telling you that the “Palestinian” terrorists cherish death is because they sacred and praise ones who are willing to die in the name of Allah – that’s why they are calling them “shahids” – the term of this word is a hero that dies for Islam religion, but there point of view is twisted and against Islam values and in our Jewish religion, if you kill yourself or commit suicide you are buried outside of the graveyard and it’s a big shame to the family, (unless you defend yourself of course).

    I do believe sometimes that most human race combined with religion is bad , But it’s just because most people wrongly interpret their religion or just crazy or fanatics – fanatics are everywhere and they are ruin life for everyone else.

    In 2005 we went away from Gaza and in 2006 the Hamas kidnapped gilad shalit, since then his been rotten in the Hamas tunnels with bombs attached to him and for four years they don’t let the U.N or the red cross to visit him even once!– that’s why we cant go inside Gaza and free him. On the other hand Hamas terrorists in prison here in Israel get to have a visit every week by the red cross, we allow them to see their families and most of them get to have free education – I’m a citizen here and I don’t get to have free education ! I’m telling you the truth and I saw it in my on eyes! I have a good friend in “hadarim” prison in Israel, well he smoked some drugs(bad boy) and will be free soon, but I visited him couple of times, and I see how we treat them – again – good for us, just like we accept Sudanese and Eritrea’s refugees . we are totally humanitarians on the verge of being suckers, that’s why I love my country and that’s why I’m so sad that all the rest of the world is oblivious with what’s going on here.

    ” Also in our last Operation in Gaza –” lead casting
    Or what ever the hell we called it, we tried so dam hard not to kill civilians, and before every entrance to Gaza, we worn the civilians to go to safe arrears- which they also have –Do you have any idea how much weapon and artillery we have? We could blow up all of Gaza in one second without any problem, but we never did because of the civilians. A lot of our soldiers had to die because they needed to go by foot – again good for us, I’m proud that my country is human, and after all of that – we are the bad guys! That’s what my friend and I talked about this week, if the world thinks of us like that, why aren’t we the S.O.B’S for real? Like Russia or china or dearest turkey these days that have a Kurdish rebels – more then 25 million lives in Iran Iraq and north turkey – most of the Turkish population up north are Kurdish and guess what turkey do since 1920? – That’s right – killing them brutally, and not only in turkey, also in north Iraq – and guess what – they are Muslims! I have never seen a flotilla going to help and support them; Why the U.N doesn’t say anything about that? What about North Korea? I’m not compressing us with them; I’m just saying it’s really easy to attack us over and over again. Last but not least – the dam flotilla incident we had last week, I keep hearing – neutral waters, territorial waters – the ship was 5 min from Israel borders!!! And I’m talking only about the marmara ship, all the other ships came back peacefully safe and with no violence from them or us, second of all, we never had the attention to fight them, and after that we found out that at least 5 known terrorist was aboard into the marmara ship, get up from another port with artillery and huge amount of money. I think we made a big mistake that we risked our soldier’s lives and came out lame for us and for the rest of the world , but a known fact – before the ships came to Israel, we have protocols from turkey that she obligated that the flotilla will be safe and without terrorist , that’s why the Israeli intelligence didn’t checked and that’s why this hole situation could have be totally different . Again we could just wait for 5 min until they will enter to Israel borders and blow up the ship? Like Russia or Denmark did with Somalia refugee’s ships? Would that be o.k.? by the way, You can find more of those in YouTube.

    Dear responders (was written to another post responders) – I care about the past, but I care so much more about the future and life , and most of all about animals and our nature – that’s why I wrote all of that without mention the holocaust- I don’t agree even here in Israel, that people use that to shut mouths , it was a terrible and dark time to a lot of nations, and that is why I told you my privet life here. I too just want to live my life quietly, but you have no idea how it feels like to be persecuted all the time by all over the world! – It sucks! I wouldn’t mind to live in another place , but I’m not willing to live illegal or without green card , and to tell you the truth , I don’t want to go where I’m not welcomed

    I am a proud person in my nature and for me the whole world hate my guts just because I’m Jewish. And as for politics, you know it’s not so simple to choose a leader and for my opinion, Mr. Benyamin Netanyahu is smart president and a great economist, that’s why most of the world is in financial mess and we are not. I think that Mr. Obama is great and smart president also (naïve, but great : )), and he took responsibly about the devastating oil pollution that you have there – but by all means this is a crime against the humanity, but worse then politics is the people who control our oil and banks/money and do whatever they feel like.

    And I’m so sorry that America has to help us and that you are angry about that, but we have mutual interest and both of our governments know we need each other.
    I wish I had the same peace of mind that you have, I wish we were living in ” lala” land , but the big boss that is in haven or in Hawaii : ) , gave each different cards and we need to do the best we can . Like the great TV show – extreme makeover – I love that show and they know how to make me cry each show: ).. I don’t hate anyone; Me and my people are just exhausted..

    Certainly not the British – I’m in love with Jason Statham : )..

    Thank you all very much for listening and if you still have strength to see one more thing, I would appreciate if you’ll click in YouTube the words – “an open letter to the world” – by Rabbi Meir Kahane.

    I hope there is out there in the universe some parallel world that all are living in perfect harmony with themselves and with nature; I know I would go there in a heart beat : )

    Sincerely

    Ms Marciano
