Blood libeling 'journalist' in Israel

Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet's Donald Bostrom arrived in Israel Sunday morning. You will recall that Bostrom was the reporter who published the blood libel that Israel is killing 'Palestinians' and harvesting their organs.
Infamous Swedish journalist Donald Bostrom arrived in Israel early Sunday morning, to be greeted by catcalls and protests at Ben Gurion Airport from Beitar Youth activists. Bostrom, who earlier this year accused IDF troops of "harvesting" body parts from Arabs, is to appear at a media conference in Dimona Sunday.

In an interview, Dimona Mayor Meir Cohen denied that he was giving Bostrom a platform to denigrate Israel. "He has been speaking around the Arab world for months, so he does not need us to give him a platform. We are going to tell him that we do not accept his accusations, and try to show him how wrong he is," Cohen said.
Good luck with that.

I'm astounded that the government gave this moron a visa.


JPost adds:
Bostrom, who arrived in Israel in order to attend a media conference in Dimona, was greeted with protests and jeers directed at him by members of the Beitar youth movement as he disembarked from the plane in the company of two security guards.

Following the announcement of Bostrom's participation, the Ministry for the Development of the Negev and the Galilee withdrew the financial support it had allocated to the conference.

[Vice Premier Silvan] Shalom, who on Saturday night had called the journalist's arrival "a shameful event," told Israel Radio on Sunday that the conference had "turned itself into a gimmick-laden stage in order to receive media coverage."

Shalom withdrew an estimated NIS 200,000 in government support for the conference, "which may have been used to fund [Bostrom's] arrival and his stay here."
Bostrom doesn't belong here no matter why he is here.

I was wondering whether Dimona decided to offer 'pillorying' as public entertainment...

/They could charge admission...

I'm ashamed Israel gave an anti-Semite a welcome. Where is our Matthias?

I'm beyond revolted not a single Jew stepped forward to defend the honor of G-d. I would have - gladly!

Actually, there were protesters at the airport from Beitar. I suspect many others would have shown up had they known when Bostrom was arriving.

Carl - the Jews' forebears would have killed him. Israel is too civilized about anti-Semites. Someone who wants Jews dead no question about it, should hang from the gallows like Haman!
