If the name fits

According to the National Affairs Adviser to Palestinian Authority President (and Holocaust denier) Mahmoud Abbas, the Jews are trafficking in organs harvested from Palestinians killed by Israeli soldiers:

The facts show that Israel and its army are trafficking in the organs of Palestinians. There are documents to this effect. Why is Europe trying to stop this [from being exposed]?

“Why must the Palestinian people pay the price under occupation? Why must it be tortured and the organs of its martyred sons used for trafficking? This is the result of the [moral] bankruptcy of the U.S. and Europe and the cover they provide [Israel]. These countries must rise to their responsibility, if they are interested in making peace and reaching a settlement in the region.”

The name of this statesman? Omar al-Ghoul. I wonder if his official portrait was done by Richard Upton Pickman?

BACKGROUND: The organ-harvesting story started in a Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet, the editor of which later admitted he had no evidence. He should work for the New York Times.

    Maybe it was sparked by the NJ rabbis brokering kidney sales story from July:

      I remember that story from when it came out, and I think Mr. Ghoul (I love that name) refers to it in his interview. But the “Israeli soldiers’ harvesting organs” meme specifically originated with the Aftonbladet homage to Jayson Blair.
