The website of Hamas’ military wing, the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades, posted a prominent tribute to the late journalist Helen Thomas who died on Shabbos. An image on the front page of the Al-Qassam website displayed a photo of “pioneer journalist Helen Thomas” next to the words, “Rest in peace, Helen Thomas. We respect you for taking a stand.”
