Israeli Defence Forces Kill Palestinians For Organs

Recommended Posts

Top Sweden newspaper says IDF kills Palestinians for their organs

By Morten Berthelsen and Barak Ravid, Haaretz Correspondent

A leading Swedish newspaper reported this week that Israeli soldiers are abducting Palestinians in order to steal their organs, a claim that prompted furious condemnation and accusations of anti-Semitic blood libel from a rival publication.

"They plunder the organs of our sons," read the headline in Sweden's largest daily newspaper, the left-leaning Aftonbladet, which devoted a double spread in its cultural section to the article.

The report quotes Palestinian claims that young men from the West Bank and Gaza Strip had been seized by the Israel Defense Forces, and their bodies returned to the families with missing organs.

"'Our sons are used as involuntary organ donors,' relatives of Khaled from Nablus said to me, as did the mother of Raed from Jenin as well as the uncles of Machmod and Nafes from Gaza, who all had disappeared for a few days and returned by night, dead and autopsied," writes author Donald Boström in his report.

Boström's article makes a link to the recent exposure of an alleged crime syndicate in New Jersey. The syndicate includes several American rabbis, and one Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, who faces charges of conspiring to broker the sale of a human kidney for a transplant.

Boström also cites an incident of alleged organ snatching from 1992, during the time of the first Palestinian intifada. He says that the IDF seized a young man known for throwing stones at Israeli troops in the Nablus area, who was shot in the chest, both legs, and the stomach before being taken to a military helicopter which transported him to "a place unknown to his loved ones".

Five nights later, Boström says, the young man's body was returned, wrapped in green hospital sheets.

"The sharp sounds from the shovels were mixed with the occasional laughter from the soldiers who were joking with each other, waiting to go home. When Bilal was put into his grave, his chest was revealed and suddenly it became clear to the present what abuse he had been put through. Bilal was far from the only one who was buried cut-up from his stomach to his chin and the speculations about the reason why had already started," he writes.

But the liberal Sydsvenskan - southern Sweden's major daily - had harsh criticism for the rival paper, running an opinion piece under the headline "Antisemitbladet" (a play on the name Aftonbladet).

"We have heard the story before, in one form or the other. It follows the traditional pattern of conspiracy theory: a great number of loose threads that the theorist tempts the reader to tie into a neat knot without having been provided with any proven connection whatsoever," writes leading columnist Mats Skogkär of Sydsvenskan.

"Whispers in the dark. Anonymous sources. Rumors. That is all it takes. After all we all know what they [the Jews] are like, don't we: inhuman, hardened. Capable of anything," the opinion piece says. "Now all that remains is the defense, equally predictable: 'Anti-Semitism' No, no, just criticism of Israel."

The Foreign Ministry reacted angrily on Tuesday to the report. Ministry spokesperson Yigal Palmor said the newspaper's decision to publish the story is "a mark of disgrace" for the Swedish press.

"In a democratic country, there should be no place for dark blood libels out of the Middle Ages of this type," Palmor said. "This is an article that shames Swedish democracy and the entire Swedish press."

A Foreign Ministry official said that Israel's embassy in Stockholm have communicated a harsh condemnation to the Swedish government and the newspaper itself.

How pathetic to allow any actions of Israeli soldiers go unpunished just because there is anti-semitism in the world. If the IDF treated Palestinians as people then it would be far more obvious which stories were attributable to anti-semitism and which are simply true.

"For the past few days Haaretz has carried numerous stories about the riveting eyewitness testimony from IDF officers concerning cold-blooded murders of unarmed Palestinian civilians...There is a perception that the Palestinian is not a person, a human being entitled to basic rights, and therefore anything may be done to him."

The Israelis don't defend themselves with any evidence; they just condemn the story as a blood libel. Thanks for the link BTW.

I am surprised there were so few posts, so little outrage, on this organ story. Now if Muslims had been doing it . . .

There's no outrage as its total garbage.

You ask why the Israelis haven't produced evidence its not true ? What evidence could you produce ? You might as well accuse me of kidnapping people and harvesting organs, then complain that I can't produce evidence that I haven't !!!

Even the person who wrote the article doesn't know if its true or not....

The reporter and the newspaper have called for an investigation. You are taking the same attitude to this as many took to LIar Loans.

A Swedish newspaper provoked outrage in Israel and drew condemnation from Sweden's ambassador on Wednesday after it ran a story on transplant organ theft, a report an Israeli official branded anti-Semitic "hate porn".

The editor of Aftonbladet, Sweden's largest daily newspaper, hit back hard, at both Israel and at the Swedish envoy for attacking his paper's coverage.

Donald Boström, the Swedish journalist whose article accusing Israel Defense Forces soldiers of killing Palestinians to obtain their organs evoked outrage, denied on Tuesday that he was motivated by anti-Semitism.

"I'm very sad to hear people accuse me of anti-Semitism," Boström told Haaretz on Tuesday.

Aftonbladet, ran Bostrom's piece under the headline, "They plunder the organs of our sons". In the wake of the report and the furious public reaction, the Israeli embassy in Stockholm on Wednesday sent a sternly-worded diplomatic protest to the Swedish government.

Boström's article, first to appear in English on Haaretz.com, makes a link to the recent exposure of an alleged crime syndicate in New Jersey. The syndicate includes several American rabbis, and one Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, who faces charges of conspiring to broker the sale of a human kidney for a transplant.

"Now that [the story] has once again risen to the surface, I wanted to point out the link [to the New Jersey affair] and the fact that there needs to be an investigation of the claims," Boström said.

Boström said he had offered the story to another Swedish newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, which turned it down "with no explanation."

The reporter said Aftonbladet, the most popular evening tabloid in Sweden, published the article without making any editorial changes.

Asa Linderborg, an editor of the newspaper's culture section which printed the story, told Haaretz that the publication "stands behind the demand for an international inquiry."

"We had many discussions on whether to publish the article or not, and to the best of my knowledge, there are no facts there that are incorrect," Linderborg said.

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry on Wednesday blasted the article. calling it anti-Semitic "hate porn".

"This article has clear elements of medieval blood libels against Jews," Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said of Monday's story in Aftonbladet. Accusing the tabloid of encouraging hate crimes, he said: "This is intolerable."

Aftonbladet editor Jan Helin said: "It's deeply unpleasant and sad to see such a strong propaganda machine using centuries-old anti-Semitic images in an apparent attempt to get an obviously topical issue off the table.

He accused the Swedish ambassador of "a flagrant assault on freedom of speech" for her criticisms.

Helin called it an opinion piece raising questions of Israel in the context of a suspected link to Israel in that U.S. case. He denied any suggestion of anti-Semitism from his paper.

I doubt this is true.

One would assume human organs could be bought for pennies on the international market.

There are lots of poor people who would be willing to give up any organ you wish for $5000.

Useful to whom? Do you deny there are abuses of Palestinian human rights by the IDF?

I do not doubt that there are occasions where IDF soldiers do not act like social-workers, as you invariably point out in your one-sided and outraged view of the situation in the Middle East.

Propaganda, it seems, works particularly well on those who want to believe.

IDF T-Shirts Boast of Killing Babies, Pregnant Women, Sodomizing Hamas Leaders

For the past few days Haaretz has carried numerous stories about the riveting eyewitness testimony from IDF officers concerning cold-blooded murders of unarmed Palestinian civilians. The second day of their testimony wasn’t available in the English edition of Haaretz last night, which was why I translated excerpts. But Haaretz now does have the English version available in a fuller translation than my own hastily composed one.

Iris Hefets also informs me that Israeli blogger and seruvnik Idan Landau has compared Haaretz’s Hebrew version of the eyewitness transcript to the original and finds several telling phrases omitted (he uses the term “censoredâ€). If you read Hebrew you can follow that interesting sidebar of the main story.

'Haniyeh: the whole the dick is in (that is, 'raped by') the Riflemen

Tonight I wanted to bring you an equally distressing story which tells of the budding fashion sense of IDF soldiers who, when they return from killing Gazans, boast of personalized T-shirts that they design often with the approval of their IDF superior officers. To be clear, the shirts are not officially sanctioned by the IDF. But the phenomenon is so widespread and tone of the slogans so toxic, that the IDF might just as well have endorsed them.

Here are some of the slogans:

A “graduation†shirt for those who have completed another snipers course depicts a Palestinian baby, who grows into a combative boy and then an armed adult, with the inscription, “No matter how it begins, we’ll put an end to it.â€

There are also plenty of shirts with blatant sexual messages. For example, the Lavi battalion produced a shirt featuring a drawing of a soldier next to a young woman with bruises, and the slogan, “Bet you got raped!†A few of the images underscore actions whose existence the army officially denies – such as “confirming the kill†(shooting a bullet into an enemy victim’s head from close range, to ensure he is dead)…â€We won’t chill ’til we confirm the kill.â€

Pregnant Palestinian woman in the crosshairs

The [T-shirt] slogan “Let every Arab mother know that her son’s fate is in my hands!†[is accompanied by] a drawing depicting a soldier as the Angel of Death, next to a gun and an Arab town,†he explains. “The text was very powerful. The funniest part was that when our soldier came to get the shirts, the man who printed them was an Arab, and the soldier felt so bad that he told the girl at the counter to bring them to him.â€

When are these shirts worn?

G. [soldier in an elite unit]: “These are shirts for around the house, for jogging, in the army. Not for going out. Sometimes people will ask you what it’s about.â€

Of the shirt depicting a bull’s-eye on a pregnant woman, he said: “…It doesn’t really mean anything. I mean it’s not like someone is gonna go and shoot a pregnant woman.â€

What is the idea behind the shirt from July 2007, which has an image of a child with the slogan “Smaller – harder!�

“It’s a kid, so you’ve got a little more of a problem, morally, and also the target is smaller.â€

'Every Arab mother must know that the fate of her son is in my hands' (photo: Nir Kafri)

A shirt printed after Operation Cast Lead in Gaza for Battalion 890 of the Paratroops depicts a King Kong-like soldier in a city under attack. The slogan is unambiguous: “If you believe it can be fixed, then believe it can be destroyed!â€

Words fail me.

The Jew seems to think that he's entitled to anything he wants.

Then he wonders why he is hated and reviled worldwide.

"The Jew"?

Your feeble minded, dehumanising bigotry would be almost amusing if it wasn't so hateful.

Cretin.

This is patently untrue.Neither Mosques or Synagogues have organs.

As a child my best friend was Jewish.His father was a factory owner while mine was a motor mechanic and we were quite poor.I was always treated as an equal by his parents,something I found unique amongst the middle class people that I encountered.

No, but there is a chance that you might be.

With your unquestioning dissemination of a Blood Libel, it does appear to be a possibility.

Innuendo and suggestion is not evidence, it is a smear. It's interesting how the new and old left (you are an old Socialist 1929crash aren't you?) seem to lap up any Jew hating propaganda, no matter how implausible it seems.

You have bought into the blood libel fallacy, eh? Did you read the original article? I do not hate Jews, but I do hate what the Israeli state has done to the Palestinians. And I bet I could quote numerous Old Testament texts that condemn the oppression of the indigenous people of Palestine.

And no, I am not a socialist of any description. I voted Tory in the Euro-elections.
