at least it wasn’t CNN or the BBC this time…
|the Saudi-based Arab News.com reported Sunday that Qaraqi’, “during the national day of Palestinian campaign to retrieve martyrs’ bodies,” accused Israel of harvesting parts from “the bodies of dead Palestinian martyrs without the consent of their families.”
According to the website, Qaraqi’ said Israel was holding on to the remains of “Palestinian martyrs to conceal the crimes it committed against the martyrs’ bodies and to punish their families.” Qaraqi has a history of this sort of thing. Just two weeks ago, he complained bitterly because Israel is not letting ‘Palestinians’ complete their education
(Carl: why should we when Gilad Shalit cannot even have a Red Cross visit after five years?).
In March, he presented an award to the family of Abbas al-Sayid, who planned the Seder night massacre
(note different spelling of last name, but it’s the same person)
and in 2010 he handed out a ‘Mother of the Year’ award to a woman who has four sons in Israeli jails for murdering Jews. In 2005, he accused Israel’s prison authorities of allowing cancer to go untreated in Israeli prisons. He said one quarter of all Palestinians are in prison.
