"If you saw two people drowning, a Jew and a non-Jew, the Torah says you save the Jewish life first. If every simple cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA ... If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has infinite value."
Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburgh

Israeli Organ Trafficking and Theft: From Moldova to PalestineIf Israel's Ministry of Defense is involved, then Americans are directly subsidizing this ghoulish practice.
In August Sweden's largest daily newspaper published an article containing grisly evidence suggesting that Israel had been taking Palestinian internal organs. The article, by veteran photojournalist Donald Bostrom, called for an international investigation to discover the facts.
Israel immediately accused Bostrom and the newspaper of 'anti-Semitism,' and charged that suggesting Israelis could be involved in the illicit removal of body parts constituted a modern 'blood libel,'(medieval stories of Jews killing people for their blood).
Numerous Israeli partisans repeated these accusations, including Commentary's Jonathan Tobin, who asserted that the story was "merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of European funded and promoted anti-Israel hate."
The fact is, however, that Israeli organ harvesting, sometimes with Israeli governmental funding and the participation of high Israeli officials, prominent Israeli physicians, and Israeli ministries has been documented for many years. Among the victims have been Palestinians.
Nancy Scheper-Hughes is Chancellor's Professor of Medical Anthropology at the University of California Berkeley, the founder of Organ Watch, and the author of scholarly books and articles on organ trafficking. She is the pundit mainstream media call upon when they need expert commentary on the topic.
(NOTE: It appears someone got to Scheper-Hughes's site, "Organ Watch," since it has been out of service since 2009)
While Scheper-Hughes emphasizes that traffickers and procurers come from numerous nations and ethnicities, including Americans and Arabs, she is unflinchingly honest in speaking about the Israeli connection:
Israel is at the top, she states. It has tentacles reaching out worldwide.
In a lecture last year sponsored by New York's PBS 13 Forum, Scheper-Hughes explained that Israeli organ traffickers, "had and still have a pyramid system at work that's awesome...they have brokers everywhere, bank accounts everywhere; they've got recruiters, they've got translators, they've got travel agents who set up the visas."
Lest this sound simply like a successful international concern, it's important to understand the nature of such a business.
As Scheper-Hughes describes it, organ trafficking consists of "Paying the poor and the hungry to slowly dismantle their bodies."
Organ traffickers prey on the world's poorest, most desperate citizens, "slum dwellers, inhabitants of dying villages, people without means or hope. Traffickers promise them what seem like astronomical sums of money (from $1,000 to $10,000)" which they frequently don't even deliver in return for vital internal organs.
For traffickers, human body parts are commodities, to be cut out of the bodies of the poor and sold to the rich. The organ 'donors' receive no follow-up care and end up worse off on many levels physically, financially, psychologically, socially than even their original tragic situation. Sometimes they are coerced into such 'donations.'
In her Forum 13 lecture Scheper-Hughes discussed the two motivations of Israeli traffickers. One was greed, she said. The other was somewhat chilling: "Revenge, restitution reparation for the Holocaust."
She described speaking with Israeli brokers who told her it's 'an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. We're going to get every single kidney and liver and heart that we can. The world owes it to us."
Scheper-Hughes says that she even heard doctors saying that.
For many years Israelis in need of an internal organ have gone on what experts call 'transplant tourism,' traveling to other nations to obtain internal organs. Sometimes body parts are obtained from those freshly dead; more often from the desperately needy. While affluent people from numerous countries and ethnicities engage in this practice, Israel is unique in several significant ways.
First, Israelis engage in this at an extraordinarily high rate. According to a 2001 BBC report, Israelis buy more kidneys per capita than any other population.
Second, Israelis have the lowest donor rate in the world one-fifth that of Europe, according to BBC. This is in part because there has been a widespread impression that Jewish religious law prohibits transplants as a 'desecration of the body.' The Israeli news service Ynet reports, the percentage of organs donated among Jews is the lowest of all the ethnic groups.
Third, the Israeli government has enabled the practice. For many years the Israeli health system subsidized its citizens transplant holidays, reimbursing Israelis $80,000 for medical operations abroad. Much of the remaining costs could often be obtained from government-subsidized Israeli insurance plans.
In addition, Israel's Ministry of Defense was directly involved.
"Abe, Sarge here says we need to harvest 3 hearts, six kidneys, two livers and a six corneas today, so start blasting at those Palestinian kids outside, just don't hit them in the organs! Hey, look, three kids playing soccer...BlAM, BLAM, BLAM...Call the transplant team, three donations to pick up NOW!"
At the 1:20 mark, watch the Khazar butcher wiggle out of moral questions about illegal transplants.

Israeli organ traffickers shift operations to ChinaWas a Ukrainian Murdered That A Jew Might Live?
An Israeli organ trafficking ring which was smashed in South Africa last year has shifted its operations to China, according to a report in the New York Times. A 52-year-old Tel Aviv man, Ilan Peri, is alleged to have organised at least 100 kidney transplants for Israelis. The Times profiled the case of an American woman from Brooklyn and a Brazilian man from the impoverished city of Recife in Durban. She paid brokers US$60,000 (a special discount because of family ties) and he received $6,000 from them. The operation was performed at St Augustine's Hospital in Durban. This is owned by a private health care chain, Netcare, which boasts that it aims "to uphold South Africa's reputation as 'the transplant capital of the world'".
Organ donation rates in Israel are amongst the lowest in the developed world, partly because of a belief that Jewish religious law forbids it.
Autopsies and Executions...in PalestineUS House Committee votes [an additional] $474 million more in May 2015 to Israel in AIPAC sponsored legislation
I remembered another visit when the military had opened fire on a demonstration. A teen-aged boy was shot in the face and soldiers charged in to get him. Suddenly hundreds of people poured into the street, oblivious to the teargas and live ammunition.
Old women ran straight at the soldiers, screaming and crying. Children flooded around to protect them from flailing clubs and gun butts. The wounded boy was dragged away by friends. Before the military could seal the gates to the city, he was out.
The best efforts of a local hospital failed to save him, however. As we entered, frenzied youths were plunging through the corridors to a secret exit with their lifeless burden. Parents of other patients rushed to hold doors and wipe the fresh blood from the tiled floor. As hospital personnel rapidly swabbed down the surgery and changed their smocks, a young woman rushed outside to drive away the car which had brought the boy. By the time the army had maneuvered around the barricades and plunged through the doors of the emergency room, all was quiet.
Why did the soldiers want the body so badly and why were the Palestinians ready to risk death to keep it? The stories of the families I had come to see today embodied those issues. Nearly a month after their sons had died, they had only just buried them.
How to blind Americans to the Palestinian genocide being perpetuated by Israel
Successful communications is about pointing out a few core principles of shared values such as democracy and freedom and repeating them over and over again¦. You need to start with empathy for both sides, remind your audience that Israel wants peace and then repeat the messages of democracy, freedom, and peace over and over again¦. we need to repeat the message, on average, ten times to be effective.The Jew has been repeating lies and bullshit about their Holocaust™ fraud so loudly and for so long, even the con artists are believing their own con.
Propaganda for lovers of Israel to repeat endlessly.
