Israeli organ stealing blood libel surfaces....again....

The press just can't do it's homework to find the truth...
On Sunday I noted that the British media’s slandering of Israel has gone further than usual recently and is no longer just limited to leftist papers like The Independent and The Guardian, but is also now common in more conservative ones such as The Times, Daily Telegraph and Financial Times.

In the past two days, the British print media have been digging up an old story from 15 years ago (about an Israeli doctor who transplanted minor organs like cornea and skin from dead Israelis – mainly Jewish Israelis but also a few Arab ones) to suggest to readers that Israel is now, as a matter of policy, harvesting the major organs of live Palestinians.

(Some countries, notably China – but not Israel – do remove live organs for transplant. There is scarcely a word about this in the British media. The Iranian-backed Lebanese terror militia Hezbollah has been accused of harvesting the organs of Lebanese Christians, with hardly any investigation of this charge by the so-called human rights groups of America and Europe.)

This morning, The Guardian, unlike other British newspapers, apologized, saying:
• We should not have put the headline "Israel admits harvesting Palestinian organs" on a story about an admission, by the former head of the Abu Kabir forensic institute near Tel Aviv, that during the 1990s specialists at the institute harvested organs from the bodies of Israeli soldiers, Israeli citizens, Palestinians and foreign workers without getting permission from the families of the deceased (21 December, page 15). That headline did not match the article, which made clear that the organs were not taken only from Palestinians. This was a serious editing error and the headline has been changed online to reflect the text of the story written by the reporter.
Yet as of Tuesday evening (Iran-time), for a second straight day, the British taxpayer-funded BBC Persian language service is continuing to highlight the lie that Israel is harvesting the organs of Palestinians on its home page here, and in a story here.

You do not see such garbage on Radio Farda, which is the U.S. government’s equivalent of BBC Persian.

BBC Persian is under the direct supervision of the British foreign office. Why British politicians and commentators (including those from the Conservative Party) put up with it, is beyond me.

Isn’t the Iranian regime serving up enough anti-Semitic hate to their own public without the BBC joining in?

A Swedish newspaper published an interview from a decade ago where an Israel doctor admitted they took the organs after the newspaper originally stated it over the weekend and Israel refuted it. Israel condemned the release of the interview and, surprise surprise, branded it anti-semitic as they always do when anyone criticises Israel and they have no answer. It's easier than trying to justify their actions obviously.
It is only libel and slander if it isn't true and as this was true, it's fact.
You condone their actions in this instance Fred and the rest of those commenters who bizarrely give unconditional support for Israel here despite everything?

Britain's NHS wants to harvest everyone's organs without asking family, so the default is harvest unless you tell them in advance of you dying you don't want them to.

Everyone should condemn Britain and deny its right to exist.

Almost right Anon, they want to change the law that at present states you must give consent by carrying a donor card to one that states organs can be taken unless you previously withdraw your consent. Unles otherwise stated, consent is assumed.
Not a stance i agree with.

The difference here is that it was done without any consent whatsoever
or maybe you have no problem with the doctors of your families killers using their body parts.
If you say no then i call you a liar. If you say yes then welcome to your morals.

Like the UK's Alder Hey organs scandal where childrens organs were secretly harvested, doctors can go too far.

The Palestinians weren't targeted any more than Jews or blacks and even The Guardian published a retraction:

The problem is many newspapers worldwide quick to print the Jewish Blood Libel instead of the real story that it was hospital policy to steal some organs.

You can make Israel into an evil empire but its not reality.

Alder Hey was roundly condemned by everyone when that surfaced Anon. This only came back into the news because Israel tried to pick a fight with the Swedish newspaper involved.
Wherever it happens, it should be condemned which i notice you are still not doing, rather you try to turn it into an anti-Israel blast.
Same tactics everytime but very ineffective, gone on for too long for its sting to be of any use.
I said Alder Hey was wrong and i'm saying this is wrong. Agree?

I live in the UK I have no racist agenda. What i would like to add to this conversation firstly is that our democracy is being murdered and we are WAY BEYOND the false left right paradigm.
Secondly i have proof that John Murdoch was on the board of glaxxo smith kline and would directly profit from the toxic vaccination of our public through the false swine flu pandemic. That case is under european investigation right now.
I myself contacted the media the house of commons and the NHS on the issues surrounding vaccination the intentional frightening of people and the contents mercury and squaline on all fronts i was met with obstruction.

Brother your politics is your buisness but we are long past the days when the truth came out of our mainstream media and even further away from the days when governments served their countries.

Just yesterday a doctor andrew wakefield was hung drawn and quartered over unethical methods when he had permission to do what he did from the parents because he proved that there is a connection between the mmr jab and autism.

After the intentional vaccination with squaline and thimerasol (mercury) which is a genocidal programme they need to make people trust vaccines again.

Incidentally there are many other sources that indicate with good science the toxicity of vaccines in fact i have a video of a merck scientist admitting they are dropping deadly viri and cancers and aids etc into vaccines.

Now im not racist in any way at all but if someone is doing something wrong of any race it needs to be pointed out and the reference to race may be only for geographical purposes.

WE need to get beyond if we criticise Isreal we are being anti semitic or we criticise obama we are racist etc.

What matters is the truth, whats being done to democracies all over the world and to us all as individuals.

What matters now isnt flags or nationalities but whats right and whats wrong.
