Aftonbladet's editor admits there's no evidence in Jewish blood libel story
The Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet, which caused a media stir in recent days with an article claiming IDF soldiers were harvesting organs from Palestinians, published an editorial on Monday denying Israeli claims.Ho, I'll bet! He certainly is a stupid, poorly educated dummy, that's for sure.
"I'm not a Nazi," Aftonbladet editor Jan Helin wrote. "I'm not anti-Semitic."
Instead, he described himself as "a responsible editor who gave the green light to an article because it raises a few questions." He did note, however, that the paper had no evidence that such horrific practices were being carried out.Questions, he says? I'm sorry, it raises none. If they're going to continue to defend their lies even as they admit there's no evidence, then they've thrown all sincerity out the window.
On Sunday, Aftonbladet published a follow-up article, defending the offending report written by freelance journalist Donald Bostrom. The second article maintained that the organ-harvesting matter "should be investigated, either to stop the relentless Palestinian rumors, or, if the rumors prove to be true, stop the trade in body parts."
