PA Prisoners’ Club accuses Israel of stealing organs from terrorist bodies

Official PA TV, live broadcast from the funeral of terrorist Sa’diyya Farajallah, who stabbed and wounded 1

 

 

 

PA-funded Prisoners’ Club Spokesperson Amjad Al-Najjar: “We currently have 10 bodies from among the heroic prisoners that are being held in the occupation’s [morgue] refrigerators. Some of them were behind bars for more than 30 years. According to what law in the entire world do they hold the body of a prisoner Martyr who was in prison for 30 years, and transfer it to the occupation’s refrigerators? Unless the occupation has another goal, which is stealing organs from these bodies, and there is evidence of this (sic., see note below on organ theft libel).”

 

 

Sa’diyya Farajallah – 65-year-old female Palestinian terrorist who stabbed and wounded an Israeli civilian near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Dec. 18, 2021. The civilian fought off Farajallah to defend himself until she was arrested by Israeli border police officers.

 

Organ theft - Acting Director-General of the PA Ministry of Justice’s Forensic Medicine Administration Dr. Ashraf Al-Qadi has refuted the PA libel that Israel steals organs from dead Palestinians: “All the Martyrs we have checked and seen, none of them had any theft of their organs. I don’t know about the Martyrs from before, whom we did not check as a Palestinian side or authority.” [Official PA TV, Good Morning Jerusalem, March 11, 2022] Like other PA libels, this libel contains a grain of truth that the PA has distorted into a lie. In 2001, an Israeli investigative journalist exposed that from the years 1988 to 2000, in violation of Israeli law, doctors at the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine had taken body parts for research and transplants of skin and corneas without permission from the relatives. Most body parts were taken from Israeli Jews, but also from Israeli Arabs, Israeli soldiers and Palestinian terrorists. At the time, the institute was run by Professor Yehuda Hiss who was personally involved in the scandal. Hiss was removed from his position as director but remained as chief pathologist until later investigations uncovered that he had continued his misconduct, which led to his dismissal from the Institute by the Ministry of Health in May 2012.There has been no documented case of Israeli organ theft since then.
