Withholding Bodies of Palestinians Killed

organ trafficking

[Ariadna: The case described below is not an exception: Israel withholds the bodies of the Palestinians it kills and then subjects the families to further pain and humiliation as described by Ma’an News and commented on below in Fig Trees and Vineyards.

In view of the fact that we have an “indissoluble bond” with Israel, we contribute billions of dollars every year to support the Jewish State and, unarguably, its practices, it would be a good idea to have each presidential candidate answer the twin question:

Why do we, who always brag about our “values,” support a state with this record of criminality and what would you do about this, if anything, if elected?

Palestinian Buried After Body Withheld for 65 Days

Richard Edmondson‘s introduction:

[Ed. note – Imagine if your loved one is killed. The body is held for 65 days. To get it back you have to agree to hold the funeral at a certain specified time. The only people allowed to attend are those on a list approved by the killers. Oh yes, and to get the body back from the killers, you must also pay them $5,150 as “collateral.” At the time the funeral is held, the killers are there–they show up, right there at the funeral of your loved one! To confiscate all cell phones and cameras of mourners coming to pay their last respects.
Israel claims to be imposing such conditions in order to prevent funerals from being turned into political protests. But of course, holding bodies for weeks on end also allows plenty of time to harvest organs–and specifying when the funeral must take place after the body finally is returned, as well as who is allowed or not allowed to attend, practically precludes any possibility of an autopsy. Not a single US official, to my knowledge, has voiced a peep of protest against this odious practice of holding bodies for extended periods of time. And of course, it goes without saying no one has broached the issue of organ harvesting, for to do so would immediately result in one’s being smeared with the charge of “blood libel” and “anti-Semitism”–as happened to the Palestinian observer at the UN when he dared raise the matter back in November.

Israel certainly has a history of organ trafficking, but even if that’s not the modus operandi behind the current practice of cadaver hoarding, still it’s incumbent upon us to ask ourselves: Does any other country in the world have an official policy of refusing to turn over bodies to grieving families? None that I’m aware of.

“Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world…”

Those are the opening words of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Declaration was approved by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948. It makes no mention of organ harvesting. Maybe it should have. But in reading over its preamble and its subsequent 30 articles, one kind of gets the feeling that no one back then could reasonably have conceived of or imagined the coming into existence of a state quite like Israel.]

    Somewhat akin to “Why do we, who always brag about our “values,” support a state with this record of criminality and what would you do about this, if anything, if elected?” —
    In 2004, Rep. Dennis Kucinich ran for POTUS (on the Democratic ticket; I actually supported Ralph Nader on a third-party quest). I attended two rallies for him on Oahu, one at the open-air courtyard at Leeward Community College. After his delivery of the usual campaign pitch, I asked him something like “The Israeli government is furiously building a wall across the West Bank [I can’t recall if this was before or after July 9, 2004, when the ICJ ruled the wall illegal and ordered it dismantled with compensation to Palestinians adversely affected by it]…I think it is an outrage on the landscape of the “holy” land. It is cutting off people and animals from their normal routes and routines. What will you do about this wall if you are elected?” Dennis answered very concisely “The wall will come down.”
    Brave words. But I have no doubt that DKucinich, like all the other male or female US establishment prostitutes “doing the donkey” for the Zionist entity calling itself Israel, would not have kept his campaign promise had he become the candidate and been elected. Most of ’em wouldn’t even go as “far” as he did…in the meantime, these some dozen years later, the Apartheid Wall, the 600,000 or so illegal Zionist settler thugs, unceasing humiliation and pressure/torture applied to Palestinian “government” and citizen alike, etc., etc., proceed without restraint or accountability; the US Zionist Lobby is evermore entrenched; and the US media-Ziothink tank-government (sic) and the dumbed-down electorate remain eager and anxious to ignore and/or flout truth, justice, US and international law, the criminal psychosis that has engulfed Zionism and all Zionists, and the human and all legitimate rights and aspirations due the Palestinians including the novel concept of liberation and freedom — indeed the very existence of the Christians and Muslims of deliberately and vindictively immiserated Palestine. And let me not neglect Gaza: it was late 2005 when the then-Sharon Zionist regime vacated (physically…the illegal settlements there) Gaza and then systematically cemented it as the world’s largest open-air concentration camp.
    Viva Palestine! Palestine Is Still The Issue!
    Condolences to the family of the young man (child) who was murdered and then violated for 65 days by the criminal Zionist psychopaths. (I’d surely write his name, but I fear vacating this page temporarily and losing my place and the text of this comment.)

    Their emphasis on sniper kills …. I have often wondered if that is not to keep the body in one piece to make harvesting all the easier…. Also I wonder if it is sometimes a crap shoot looking for specific blood types for specific purchasers. I mean, why pay a go-between for organs if you have a whole farm right there waiting to be harvested from?
    The Chinese already do this with their work farms and their organ harvesting business. All those healthy YOUNG Palestinians just waiting to be harvested. Notice they seem to specialize in the young and healthy…. And as I have covered in great depth previously, Israel is the international headquarters for body parts…… although India and China are tough competitors in the field.
    These ghouls (with all due apologies to innocent zombies everywhere) have no decency. Beasts to slaughter…. that is what two legged animals are to them. And we are the animals.
    They regulate funerals now because they really don’t want folks to discover their deceased one has been returned, body cavity stuffed with any old garbage to fill it out. I remember bodies being stuffed with such material a few years ago …. they have been regulating funerals more and more and now they have reached this horrific stage.
    The fee charged for the return of the body is … SO F#CKING USURIOUS and VILE…. especially when the body is of an innocent more often than not and the fact that if one is arrested… the family home is usually destroyed within weeks at most.

    Just saying that, even this morning I received yet another offer for my body parts drawn by one of my older articles on the topic. Over the years now I have probably received a dozen invitations to sell my body parts …. I traced the links and they lead to what appear to be medical organizations… sad but true. Of course I post those comments … who can take them too seriously?
