Antisemitic article in a Canadian newspaper in Arabic. The article written by former Hamas official Dr. Mustafa Yusuf al-Lidawi, who has a track record of accusing Jews of blood libel and other ugly charges. Lets see how this plays out. https://t.co/uehCTsm8kq

What if Jews really do steal people’s organs?
You just can’t ever talk about it, because it is automatically assumed that anyone who mentions poor behavior by Jews is a hater who is lying out of hatred.
A story that ran last month in a Canadian Arabic newspaper alleges that Israelis steal organs from Palestinian bodies; B’nai Brith Canada denounced the story as Blood Libel.
According to B’nai Brith Canada, the Toronto area-based newspaper al-Meshwar ran a story in its Feb. 28 edition with the headline: “The Abuse of the Martyrs and the Manipulation of Their Bodies Are Jewish Commandments and Israeli Directives,” by Dr. Mustafa Yusuf al-Lidawi, identified as a former Hamas representative. B’nai Brith Canada states that al-Lidawi’s story “falsely accuses Israel of burying prisoners alive and stealing their organs, a practice he blames on Israel’s ‘ancient malice, and Talmudic and Torah commandments.’”
Additionally in the story, al-Lidawi praises Palestinian terrorists for achieving “martyrdom.”
B’nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn said in a statement, “It is unacceptable that Canadian publications, in any language, continue to demonize Jews and glorify terrorism. These relentless and baseless attacks on our community undermine inter-communal relations and increase the risk to our safety.”
Canadian Jewish News (CJN) also reported that, on the same page as al-Lidawai’s story, was a story alleging that Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is worse than what the Nazis did to Jews, stating: “The horrors of the 20th century Holocaust become a justification for a crime uglier than its predecessor, and the victim was thus transformed into a murderer and perpetrator of the 21st century Holocaust.”
Mostyn told CJN, “It is irrefutably anti-Semitic and harmful to imply that the Jewish state — the only genuine democracy in the Middle East — and its citizenry have become modern-day Nazis.”
B’nai Brith Canada filed a complaint with Toronto police over the stories.
I personally believe that Jews are the world’s number one organ thieves. But even if you don’t believe that, it is of course possible for any group of people to engage in organ theft.
However, this standard of making it so Jews can never be accused of organ theft means that if Jews want to engage in organ theft, they can never be caught or prosecuted for it, because it is a fundamental assertion of Western society that you are not allowed to talk about Jews stealing people’s organs.
