How a Blood Libel Against Israel Is Born– Lt. Col. (ret.) Jonathan D. Halevi (Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs)
On the one hand, the Palestinian leadership glorifies the perpetrators of the stabbing attacks, encourages continued attempts to murder Jews, and boasts that thanks to the Palestinian “knife intifada” the Jews fear for their lives.
Yet, in the same breath, the Palestinian leadership claims that Israel is executing “innocent” Palestinians on the “false” charge that they are attempting such attacks and is even fabricating the scenes of the crimes.
Israel Blasts Palestinians after Accusations of Organ-Harvesting (Reuters)
Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon on Wednesday rejected Palestinian allegations that Israel had recently harvested organs from Palestinians its forces had killed, condemning the charges as anti-Semitic.
The chief Palestinian delegate at the UN, Riyad Mansour, on Tuesday wrote to the president of the UN Security Council claiming that the bodies of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces “were returned with missing corneas and other organs.”
Danon said, “This blood libel by the Palestinian representative exposes his anti-Semitic motives and his true colors.”
He called on Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon “to repudiate this sinister accusation and to condemn the ongoing incitement by Palestinian leaders.”
