Blood Libel And Speedy Lies.

with 4 comments

I was about to blog on the phenomena of blood libels, and in particular the Offal libel’s reappearance in Algeria, but David Schraub explains it better:

“That Swedish blood libel article really set off the avalanche, didn’t it? Counterpunch magazine, as per Alison Weir of “If American’s Knew”, is now asserting that not only is the Swedish article accurate, but also the original medieval blood libel is actually true as well.

Of all the anti-Semitic myths I really assumed had died a permanent death, the blood libel was pretty high on the list. Alas, I’m always far too optimistic about these things, it seems.”

  2. Ah perhaps William of Norwich was harvested for his organs too… Seriously I simply cannot believe that this story is being given space…or am I underestimating the reservoir of hate there is still out there for Jews?

    Needless to say I find the likes of Weir et al to be scum

    On a lighter note I seem to have invented a new expression in Offal Libel!
