Swedish Blood Libel

Swedish writer ‘not sure’ story’s true

But it did not stop him from writing the story.

A report in Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet earlier this week alleging that Israel was harvesting Palestinians’ organs for transplant continued to cause ripples on Wednesday with statements by Israeli officials, the Swedish Embassy in Tel Aviv and the writer of the report.

Swedish Embassy “shares Israel’s dismay” over report IDF abducts Palestinians to steal organs.

“I have a personal opinion, it concerns me that it’s true,” Donald Bostrom, who penned the story, told Israel Radio en route to an emergency meeting at the editorial offices Aftonbladet, presumably to discuss the aftermath of the report.

“I was [present] during the interview that night, I was a witness. It concerns me to the extent that I want it to be investigated,” Bostrom told the station. “But whether it’s true or not – I have no idea, I have no clue.”

He was referring to a Palestinian witness who recounted an incident where a Palestinian was allegedly taken by the Israeli military and his body returned several days later – lacking some internal organs.

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon responded to the report by saying: “This is a blood libel and the worst type of anti-Semitism.”

Ayalon called on the Swedish government to condemn these accusations and said Israel “sees a correlation between the Swedish government’s public statements, which are extremely critical of Israel, and anti-Semitism in the press.”

    My God the Middle Ages have not died off. The blood libel is as old as 12th century England and has been in circulation throughout the Arab world even to this day. The Swedes (as well as the Norwegians) have become particularly vicious in their Israel hatred even as their third largest city Malmo becomes a part of the Umma. I am glad that the Israeli Foreign Ministry called in the Swedish ambassador to lodge a strong protest -- the Olmert government would have done nothing.

    Stop the presses: blood libel goes mainstream in Sweden

    “[By the way, this is not the first time such accusations have been made. In the Turkish film, "Valley of the Wolves," Gary Busey played an American Jewish doctor who was stealing the organs of Iraqis for the United States and Israel. Note that the Turkish prime minister praised the film, that it was shown to large Muslim audiences in Holland and elsewhere in Europe, and that a friend who saw it in Syria noticed people crying in the theatre at the sight of such evil behavior. Have no doubt: many thousands of people who saw the film believe this accusation to be true.]“

    I read stuff like this and it really boggles the mind. How can someone believe such things?

    The Jewish people have flourished wherever they have lived. They bring innovation, work ethic, education, and a whole host of other kick ass qualities that most are raised with.

    But let a lying, living off of g’ment aid, would rather buy bombs than food splodeydope wannabe start running off at the mouth and THAT’S the story that anti-semites propagate.

    It’s sad.

    That is the reason they do say it. Some of this is based on jealousy. If they are successful its obviously because they are doing something bad. Can’t be that they are hard working people who believe in education. I dealt with this in NYC public schools. some kids didn’t want to study. When they did poorly, they blamed others. They see some people with cars or houses and wonder why they don’t have them and think the people that have them got them by evil means.

    Couldn’t be because they worked hard for them

    Jews have added strength and character to every nation that admitted them. I cannot say the same about members of another religion that started in the Arabian desert. Years ago when touring Munchen (Munich) my guide said to me “Yes we got rid of our Jews (actually murdered them but I digress) who were brilliant, assimilated and productive and replaced them with 2 million Turks. A bad trade indeed”.

    Notice Islam/Muzzies are never bashed. If you do, the personal gets labeled Racist. If you bash Israel (Jews), You get praised.

    I might start a smear website and invent stories/Conspiracies about Muslims. I’m tired of Jews getting blamed. Really how can such few people have all this power the Leftists claim.

    It’s annoying at this point.

    Stay tuned I’m really considering making a smear site on Muslims.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but this story doesn’t even seem technically feasible to me.

    I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV (or at townhall mettings), but don’t you have to keep a body on life support if you’re planning to harvest organs from it?

    From the description, it sounds as though they’re claiming the Israelis were picking up dead bodies off the street or whatever and carting them off, not taking people who had died in a hospital.

    Speaking of Munich, I made a pilgrimage by myself to 31 Connollystrasse to see the site of the room where the Israeli Olympic team (at least some of them) were held hostage that horrific day on September 5, 1972. There was a morose (maybe even morbid) part of me that wanted to experience the actual apartment. It gave me as creepy a feeling as did my visits to Dachau (outside Munich) and Theresienstadt (Czech Republic) concentration camps. It was not that difficult to find, just get off the Olympic Stadium U-bahn stop, walk away from the park and find Connollystrasse (you pass an outdoor shopping mall). There is a nice plaque there in both German and Hebrew and there are always flowers left at the site. Hard to believe that there are still people living and working in that room -it is part of the Max Planck Institute.

    Just from a logistics standpoint, it makes no sense.

    Why would Israelis harvest organs of palestinians, secretly and illegally, for sale on the black market when they have a plethora of organs open for use from the victims of the pallie’s regular rocket attacks against the israeli people?

    That’s like walking past your apple tree to ask your neighbor if you can get an apple.

    The ‘story’ doesn’t even pass a most basic logic test…..

    big time fail.

    No one has pointed out that if this were true (I’m not saying it is), then the palestinians would finally have a real cash crop. We are talking about people so pathetic that they can’t even grow drugs. At least if someone were harvesting their organs they’d finally have a GDP.

    I think I know more than most folks I deal with in a day (probably because when it comes to most of the folks I meet in ‘real’ life, I do), but if I am wrong on something and they provide the evidence showing that I’m wrong….. and I have no evidence that I’m right…… then I can hardly dismiss history for the sake of appearing right.

    Of course, I am not a liberal.

    I saw that and was amazed. Here he is doing the same thing he yelled at others for. And when the liberal members say something bad, he lets it go. Let a conservative do it… bam… banned. He nailed apachegunner for just being a bit snide. He can’t handle it. And the fawning of some of them to Charles. The guy can do no wrong

    re: #62 by Speranza

    It was during my misspent youth, on my way from Denmark to Luxembourg to catch my plane home.I had bronchitis, nearly broke and had to hitchike my way to Cologne to get a train. A German trucker took me across the border and when I showed my passport he could see my Jewish maiden name.Dropped me in the middle of the autobahn,about 11pm, very dangerous and cold. Cops stopped, laughed and drove off when they found out I was American, then a perv tried to pick me up. Finally a Turk gave me a lift into Cologne, he was also a pig, had to leap out of his truck.I was alone in the station,no idea which train to take until a kind young man approached who knew some English proudly told me he was a Communist and would put me aboard the correct train, lol.

    A train in Germany, no no no! Every single person I met there was nasty except for the Commie! Aren’t you glad you asked?

    It is for being snide to HIM, or for disagreeing with him and not changing YOUR opinion and standing up for yourself.

    Ex-ACORN Vegas director to testify against group

    Updated: Aug 19, 2009 03:04 PM EDT

    A former Las Vegas director for the political advocacy group ACORN has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge and agreed to testify against the group and another employee.

    Chief Deputy Nevada Attorney General Conrad Hafen said Wednesday that Christopher Edwards’ plea deal strengthens a felony case against the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now and Amy Busefink, a former regional voter registration director.

    They’re accused of illegally paying canvassers to register voters during last year’s presidential campaign.

    Edwards pleaded guilty this week to two counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters.

    He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 17.

    Hafen says the group had a local policy of paying bonuses to canvassers who signed up 21 or more new voters per shift.

    hey, you all, why don’t we root for moveon.org destroy another one of our conservative spokespersons. Sure Beck is a little off the wall, or maybe a lot, thats his schtick. why is it ok to call Beck a loonytoon, and say its ok if George Soros money to be used to destroy him? Why because he makes you uncomfortable? and just who is the squeaky clean, don’t insult obama, be nice man you are looking to? sounds like you are wishing for McCain again, that didn’t work, did it? You are all becoming “moderates” hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil. Good luck with that.
    Beck did an excellent expose of Acorn and he did a better job exposing them than anyone else did.
    It seems that there is a very liberal attitude growing here, fine if you folks want to be afraid to say anything about our beloved leader, ok. You are rooting for the destruction of someone who is on the same side as you, even though he may not believe exactly the way you do, but the last time I checked, george soros was our enemy. Why would I cheer for him to destroy one of us.

    Condemning outright lies is not opposing “free speech”. It is opposing outright lies.
