Baroness Tonge And Organ Harvesting.

with 5 comments

I freely confess that I can’t understand why anyone with a pulse or the ability to scratch themselves would be taken in by the Offal libel.

I find it even harder to understand why a Liberal peer would give any credence to this nonsense and not appreciate its historical significance, to Jews.

Baroness Tonge has plenty of form, but even now I find it hard to credit that a one-time GP, MP and highly educated individual would fall for this rubbish and want to bring it up.

The Offal libel is the stuff of neo-Nazi web sites, conspiracy freaks and others with a blistering hatred of Jews. It is a fringe racist notion. It is not subtle or in any way legitimate criticism.

Rather the Offal libel seeks to demonise Israelis/Jews as organ stealing fiends, hellbent on extracting livers, kidneys and other bits from unsuspecting patients.

All nonsense, all racist fiction but some warped individuals seem to believe that.

More over at the JC, some Lib Dems reply to Baroness Tonge’s foolishness :

“Monroe Palmer, chairman of Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel, added: “Whilst I welcome Tonge’s approval of Israeli actions in Haiti, she is misguided to call for any investigation. On this basis, there could be calls for an investigation to discover the ‘truth’ in the The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

Matthew Harris, Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hendon, called it “perverse in the extreme to suggest that there needs to be an investigation of allegations to which she gives no credence”.
