Israeli officials condemn Swedish news report as ‘blood libel’

From Raw Story:

The Israeli press is in flames over what is being called a “medieval blood libel” by a Swedish newspaper which alleged today that Israeli Defense Force soldiers have been killing Palestinians, including children, and selling their organs.

The claims were so offensive to Israeli officials, they ordered the nation’s embassy in Stockholm to demand the Swedish government condemn the paper, according to published reports.
