Fake claim of antisemitism

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz is for civil rights but not Palestinian rights; he is for free speech, but not speech that is critical of Israel. These contradictions are caught in a student cartoon (shown in post) in which an Israeli soldier has shot a Palestinian man who is lying in a pool of his own blood. Dershowitz hits back with a phrase that few will dare argue with lest they be thought antisemitic – blood libel.

Deadly steps from political into religious war

Although the secular Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, military wing of the PFLP, has claimed responsibility for the killings of five ‘rabbis’ – an honorific title – anger about the incursion of right-wing religious Jews onto Temple Mount has been the greatest incitement – while Netanyahu blames ‘a blood libel’ by Palestinians.

Pointless report on another pointless child-killing

The killing of a terrified 12 year old boy, Mohammed al Dura, as he sheltered behind his father, was filmed by Palestinian cameraman Talal Abou Rahmeh with reporting by French Israeli journalist Charles Enderlin for France’s Channel 2, which then broadcast it. The worldwide audience was so shocked that it began the shift in public opinion against the careless violence of Israel’s ‘defence’ force. A report commissioned by Netanyahu exonerates the IDF and accompanying Israeli commentary suggests the film is a fraud and a ‘blood libel’.That’ll shut them up.

A story went round the world that a rabbinical court in Jerusalem had ordered children to stone a dog to death. It would be funny had not some people believed it
