'Our friends the Egyptians' promote the organ theft libel

Yet another example of how little a peace treaty with an Arab Muslim country is worth. Picking up on the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Egypt is promoting the blood libel that Israel steals organs from 'Palestinian martyrs.'
The following are the remarks by the head of the Egyptian Medical Syndicate as reported in the PA daily, Al-Ayyam:
"The head of the Egyptian Medical Syndicate, Dr. Hamdi Al-Sayed, said yesterday that the decisions of the [Egyptian] medical associations were based on a rejection of relations with Israeli doctors, since they took part in grave abuses against the Palestinian people. He stated, in press releases in Cairo, that the Egyptian Medical Syndicate views any type of normalization with the Israeli occupation as a crime.

In response to the Israeli doctors' protest over Egyptian authorities not issuing them permits to enter Egypt for a medical conference, he said: 'We have no regard or respect for the Israeli doctors because the medical community has condemned them due to their participation in the torture of Palestinian prisoners.' He added: 'The Israeli Medical Association has acknowledged having participated in torture, noting that it had done so with the aim of protecting Israeli citizens.' He stated that the Israeli doctors are also guilty of stealing the organs of Palestinian prisoners, and that 'such people will not be permitted to take part in our medical activities."
[Al-Ayyam, Nov. 27, 2009]
By the way, the conference in question was the Susan G. Komen Foundation conference on breast cancer. The Israeli doctors were eventually allowed to attend the conference.

"Our friends the Egyptian's"? Since when? There wasn't a "peace treaty" - more like a "halt in open warfare sticky note". we give them Sinai, they..they...I'm still working on it..oh..they "allow" us to go in as tourists and spend money there.

Blood libel against Jews: another day in Paradise.

Sarah Leah,

The single quotes into which I put 'our friends the Egyptians' are known as scare quotes. They mean that although people call the Egyptians our friends, they are anything but. They have never given up on trying to destroy us, and they probably never will.

Komen has been lying. No Israeli doctors were allowed to attend. They lied to keep the money coming in.

They approved of the Egyptian decision, lied knowing about it, and are still lying.
