Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Oh, and does the Israeli blogger who assumes the organ harvesting story is true have his opinions published in English by Haaretz, too?

I don't see any Israeli blogger claiming this story is true. Indeed, even the parents of the Palestinian kid who was killed by the IDF back in 1992 denies that their son had his organs stolen. They even deny ever talking to the journalist Boström, claiming that he just snapped a few pictures of their dead son.

This entire story is classic antisemitism based on the old blood libel story. If you haven't read the article itself, it's here in English. No proof of anything at all, just pure speculation and falsely claimed hearsay connecting different weakly supported dots in classic conspiracy theory manner. It's quite a surprise that he doesn't quote the Elders of Zion papers too...

Of course, none of this is any excuse for Liebermans ridiculous and insulting behaviour.

huh?
if Israel had admitted to the awful inhuman things that were done during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, and had supported the soldiers that had the courage to admit to the awful things they witnessed or participated in
What is Ha'aretz blogger Beni Tzipper (gk's link to Hebrew article) talking about, then?

Uh, the blogger says Israel did horrible things in Cast Lead, but I don't see him claiming they were part of a worldwide organ harvesting operation. Anyway, I can't read Hebrew...

So the Israeli blogger is using the Swedish allegations to carry his own water in the unrelated internal Israeli debate over Cast Lead?

WTF? Is anyone writing in good faith in this whole story?

It seems Aftonbladet in true unserious style has made an extremely tendentious translation of the text into English, making it far less grave when in English, according to a Swedish blogger.
