Alison Weir speaks on history of Israeli organ trafficking
The Israeli government has accused a Swedish newspaper of anti-Semitism for publishing an article documenting possible cases of organ trafficking by the Israeli military.
Israeli offi cials said that the article was quote “hate porn” meant to demonize both the Israeli military and all Jewish people.
The authors of the article, however, said that their article was an attempt to document a practice that was recently exposed by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation during a massive sting operation in New Jersey.
The FBI recently arrested close to fifty Rabbis, mayors, and congressmembers in the largest sting in New Jersey’s history.
The accusations against the crime ring included trafficking organs illegally from Israel to the US.
