    I didn't say she was sincere, it's why I didn't dispute it when you said it. I said it was good that she did. I didn't say anything about her sincerity. I agree with you: I doubt she is sincere with this apology. What I am, disputing is that everytime something is said against Israel, it is customary to apologise. But, good call at evading the debate again.
    It is customary to apologize, especially when it comes from a politician of her stature

    It might not have anything to do with Haiti doesnt
    change the fact that Israel are exploiting UN human rights. Let me guess I am anti-semitic since I posted something which is against zionism? LMAO ..
    oh no im not going to accuse you of being anti-semitic. im simply pointing out that thinking israel is harvesting organs from haiti is foolish (despite their 'track record')

    HRW, Amnesty International, Oxfam, Red Cross, UNHRC, UNGA, UNSC, The Guardian, The Independent, Avi Shlaim, Norman Finkelstein, Noam Chomsky, Edward Said Breaking the Silence, B'Tselem, The Goldstone Report, PressTV.. I could go on and on.

    Your statement was a general one about how "anytime anyone" someone says something against Israel. That makes you out of touch with the NGOs, British press, numerous academics and various other news-outlets. Despite no apology from all these places (and more), you believe it to be "customary" to apologise anytime anything is said against Israel.

    Anti-semitism and criticism of Israel, contrary to popular belief, are not the same thing.

    I have jewish heritage, I consider myself of the same race, that doesn't stop me from thinking some of Israel's actions are evil.

    Not that I'm saying these allegations are true, but if there's reason to believe they are there should certainly be an investigation.

    none of those actually have anything to do with the israeli state of idf, theyre civilians, one is being put on trial in israel (funny they would do that if they were harvesting organs, eh?) and the other seems to be a US citizen who was doing it of his own accord.

    Why is this relevant?

    It is customary to apologize as did Jimmy Carter as did Deputy Minister Fatima Hajaig of South Africa.

    Yes, but you didnt specify that it was just politicians. You made a general statement. Even when I called you up on it, you said "It is customary to apologize, especially when it comes from a politician of her stature" - i.e. more so with politicians but still as a general maxim.

    It's relevant because all those institutions/people say things against Israel and they don't apologise. Yet, you think its 'customary' to apologise "anytime anything" is said against Israel.

    Um, no I'm not. I'm trying to claim that a lie which - (a) demonises the Jewish state, (b) bears a striking resemblance to the blood libel and (c) emanates from an author who invited American Holocaust denier Jeff Rense to a recent conference and from a "news" paper whose recent stories include one which claimed the failed Detroit bombing was a "mossad trick" - probably is.

    You and many others seem convinced that accusations of anti-semitism as used by those who wish to protect themselves from criticism. I'm rather more convinced that it's your lot who wish to discredit the arguments of others with accusations of accusations of anti-semitism, as it were.

    In conclusion, you're an idiot.
    Good post, this organ story is pathetic nonsense.

    This article is retarded. Why invent a lie when you true cases of abuses by Israel?
    How do you know it's a lie if they did don't do an investigation given what they did to the Palestinians was under government orders? The situation in Haiti is extremely fertile ground for this to occur

    well one in the US, one in israel. just because citizens choose to do this illegally it does not mean its the states fault. or are you going to try to argue it is? israel as a state does not profit from those news links, a couple of greedy, manipulative men do.
