Blood libel from America's favourite fascist

Those of you interested in Palestinian affairs may have noticed that Philippe Karsenty is currently appealing against the verdict that he libelled the France 2 television station by accusing it of knowingly broadcasting faked footage of the shooting of Mohammed al-Durrah. Those of you who don't know what the hell I'm on about, follow the link: you probably saw the pictures even if you don't recognise the name.

I have to say that there are unanswered questions about the footage, and while I wouldn't go as far as some of the Zionist nutters who claim the boy was murdered by the Palestinians as a photo-op, I'm not totally convinced by what I've seen so far.


Here is Frontpage Magazine, run by (among others) David Horowitz whom we last saw organising fascist rallies in American universities. (As its blogroll is proudly headed up by such luminaries as Little Green Footballs and Benjamin "Cunt" Kerstein, the magazine clearly holds his values dear.) In its article on the al-Durrah affair (reckoning the while thing was a fake rather than a genuine killing by anyone) we find this interesting statement:

Two weeks after the Al Durrah tapes aired, two Jewish soldiers lost their way in Ramallah, where they were savagely beaten to death, their innards eaten by hysterical and frenzied crowds screaming Allah Akbar--God is great--and seeking revenge for the supposed death of the boy.

You will seek in vain for corroboration of this extraordinary statement, either on the FrontPage site or anywhere else, as it is (shock!) a total fabrication. (Hint: Muslims don't eat offal or blood even from non-human sources.) As you will for any retraction or apology from the fascists who made it. I often wondered what would be the most perfect analogy for the old anti-Semitic "blood libel" that Jews used the blood of murdered Christians to make their Passover matzohs. Well, now I know.

Funny, isn't it, that it is these flagrant liars and bigots who make the most noise about anti-Semitic untruths?

Anyway, if the Home Office want to keep dangerous extremists out of Britain, they could start with this piece of offal (currently still in possession of all her blood) - the one responsible for the piece of filth Horowitz's site endorsed. And follow up with Horowitz himself.
