Blood Libels Manufactured in Israel
By Isi Leibler
In highlighting what was subsequently proven to be outright falsehoods about IDF soldiers deliberately killing Palestinian civilians, the daily Haaretz has behaved in an unconscionable manner and inflicted enormous damage to Israel’s global standing, already severely battered in the wake of other false accusations of war crimes.
At a pre military college a number of soldiers made unsubstantiated allegations concerning acts of indiscriminate killing and vandalism perpetrated against Palestinian civilians. It subsequently transpired that the key “witnesses” were relying entirely on gossip they had heard and had not even served in Gaza. They even confessed that although they were unaware that they were being taped, they had exaggerated rumors in order to “make an impact” and convey their message “powerfully”. The allegations were neither verified nor considered within the context of threats such as suicide bombers. Nor was the IDF granted advance notice to provide a response.
