Helen Thomas Diversity Award ?

The University of Michigan has a "Diversity Award" that it gives to “recognize her role in promoting diversity in media and issues of race in America.” After her remarks that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine", the appropriateness of naming such an award after her is being reviewed.

If her suggestion is followed, Israel will become yet another country in from which non Muslims are either reduced to third class citizenship or "encouraged" to leave. In one Arab country after another, including the Palestine Authority, the Christian population has been plummeting. Israel by contrast, has significant Christian and Muslim minorities. Within its Jewish population and as a whole, Israel is a stunning panorama of diversity. It is nevertheless routinely condemned for "racism".

I don't expect the University of Michigan to name its "Diversity Award" after an Israeli. But it wouldn't be a bad idea. Sphere: Related Content
