Israeli organ harvesting

If you're like me, you read the reports published in a Swedish newspaper about Israel stealing organs from Palestinians with a certain skepticism. The article certainly provided enough information to suggest that a real investigation was called for (although, given Israel's long history of non-cooperation with any kind of international investigation into its crimes, that's probably a vain hope), but hardly constituted any kind of proof. It seemed like a story that really could have benefited from a lot more research before publication.

If you thought that, or even if you were convinced by the charges, here are two articles from CounterPunch, one quite long and thorough, another shorter one, both worth reading, that will give you a lot more food for thought. It's not really a question of deducing that there is fire when seeing smoke. It's more like seeing fire someplace and inferring that there is quite likely also fire close by.
