PA libel: Israel violates Martyrs, steals organs
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - June 10, 2010

 
Issa Karake, Minister of Prisoners' Affairs, accuses Israel of stealing body parts:
     "Issa Karake, Minister of Prisoners' Affairs, emphasized the need to raise public Palestinian awareness concerning examination of the bodies of Shahids (Martyrs) and agreement to their autopsies, in order to halt the violations of the Shahids and their pure bodies. He announced that his ministry had established a committee of lawyers, which would deal with all the Israeli violations, including theft of the Shahids' organs and the holding of their bodies in cemeteries for enemy casualties. He noted that there has been a rise in the phenomenon of prisoners sick with cancer in the occupation's prisons.
This [announcement was made] during Minister Karake's meeting with [Swedish journalist] Donald Boström yesterday at the Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs in Ramallah. The meeting dealt with the subject of Shahids' bodies, theft of Shahids' organs, and field executions of prisoners carried out by the occupation authorities, since the Swedish journalist Donald Boström had previously raised the subject of theft of the organs of Palestinian Shahids
The Minister of Prisoners' Affairs spoke about this issue and said that since the publication of Boström's article in the Swedish press, he has encountered great interest among Palestinians, especially in the wake of indications in this regard and important evidence concerning the theft of Shahids' organs."
