-UK: Baroness Claims That Israel Went to Haiti to Harvest Organs?

The Baroness Jenny Tonge demands that Israel prove that they didn’t send medical teams to Haiti to harvest organs from the dead rather than help the victims of the recent earthquake.

A Palestinian newspaper made that claim and the Baroness took it serious and demanded an investigation:

“The IDF and the Israeli Medical Association should establish an independent inquiry immediately to clear the names of the team in Haiti.”

This would be laughable if the Baroness Tonge wasn’t an official in the Liberal Democrat political party in the UK at the time. Her comments are a throwback to the legendary anti-Semitic polemic The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and the historical blood libel claims of the middle ages when Jews were accused of harvesting Christian blood for use in religious rituals.

There is absolutely no evidence that Israeli doctors were in Haiti harvesting organs. Quite the contrary, the Israelis work side by side with American doctors to save the lives of the earthquake victims.

There was a claim made on British TV in 2009 that corneas and other organs were routinely harvested from the dead in Israel. It was unsubstantiated except for the claims of one former Israeli doctor. That report may have been the basis for the Haiti charges.

Baroness Tonge should have known better, she is not an ignorant person and is actually a medical doctor herself. Her radical support for the Palestinian cause may have taken over and overruled her common sense. It does illustrate the rise of anti-Semitism in the UK and Europe and the illogical turns that it takes even in the supposedly informed 21th century.               *Top
