Honest Reporting: Time Magazine Spews Blood Libel
The media watchdogs at HonestReporting.com have caught Time magazine in a classic antisemitic blood libel, spreading the myth that Jews harvest organs from dead Palestinians.
The claim emerges in a video at Time.com about the Israeli military, which states: "in 2009 a Swedish report came out exposing some Israeli troops of selling organs of Palestinians who died in their custody." That report, Honest Reporting notes, was a fraud.
"The reference is to a completely made up tabloid style article in an obscure Swedish paper, that even the author admitted was not based on any evidence," says Honest Reporting, adding that the repetition of the myth was entirely predictable at the time: "Unfortunately, we also wrote at the time that despite the author’s own admission that he had no evidence to back up his horrendous accusation, the story would continue spreading."
