As creepy as it gets

Blood libel against Jews was once a European staple and contributed to the ugly fact that Nazi exterminators found eager accomplices in most of the countries they occupied.

But we now see that the blood libel made a round-trip to the middle east and back to Europe -- as a thinly disguised anti-Zionism.

How else to explain the fact that a leading Stockholm daily reports (on the basis of only old hearsay evidence) that Israeli troops kill Palestinians to harvest their organs?

No one knows how many crazies this inspires to wreak mayhem on innocents.

There are many honorable Swedes, but this is creepy. There were also many honorable Germans in pre-WW II Germany. Neither has the excuse that conspiracy believers in the Third World (unfortunately) have -- that they are primitives.
