TMZ called it (as usual): Mel Gibson didn't make the "Top 10 Anti-Semitic Slurs of 2010'' list? Surprising, innit?

It's a whole new era in unenlightened Jew hating. And the L.A.-based Simon Wiesenthal Center has the list of fresh recruits.

At the top, former Associated Press White House correspondent Helen Thomas. God bless, because if she would have kept her mouth shut, we would have known her for her tireless reporting instead of for a few minutes of truly bad judgment.

She said, "Jews should get the hell out of Palestine. They should go home to Poland, Germany, America and everywhere else."

Eh. Okay. You could maybe have that opinion in your own home. But to say it during an American Jewish Heritage Month celebration at the White House?

That'll put you at the top of this list. Congratulations.

Thomas did it again not long after, making the number two quote on the list too. And this was an opinion you probably shouldn't have, even in your own home: "

"Congress, the White House, Hollywood and Wall Street are owned by Zionists. They put their money where their mouth is.''

Really Helen?

Oliver Stone is number three. He blamed "Jewish domination of the media" for the Holocaust's continued historic resonance. You mean the same Jewish media that continues to make Oliver Stone a household name? Huh.

Numbers three through ten: Former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, Christina Patterson, of The Independent newspaper, former Malaysian Premier Mahatir Mohammad, Karel de Gucht, European Union trade negotiator, Thilo Sarrazin, a former board member of Germany's central bank, and Petras Stankeras, an advisor to Lithuania's interior ministry.

Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, says anti-Semitism continues to have surprising legs in the new millennium.

"Never before, in recent memory, has the Simon Wiesenthal Center seen such a proliferation of anti-Semitism going mainstream. Our list shows that anti-Semitic canards normally thought to belong to the lunatic fringe have in fact been bought into by major elements of Western society.''

Congratulations Top 10ers. And we'd like to give a special shout out to the Jewish-controlled media for letting this Mexican write stuff about idiots like Mel Gibson. (We kid).
