Jaafari to UNSC: US, Turkey, White Helmets Plot Chemical Attack in Idlib

Syrian Ambassador to the UNSC Bashar Jaafari
H.E. Bashar al Jaafari

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN, His Excellency Dr. Bashar al Jaafari dropped another bombshell at the 84th meeting of the UNSC on the ‘Syrian chemical weapons’ file since the passage of UNSCR 2118 (2013), noting that a certain American envoy recently visited Turkey to plot out a new chemical weapons attack in Idlib.

This meeting of 10 September was one of the most tediously repetitious in terms of the same strident, criminal lies of the NATO klansmen running the United Nations. Even the normal cacophony of the House Servant echolalia was a bit more annoying than usual.

UNSC: Mostly NATO klan & underlings.

A simple synopsis of the NATO Security Council members as follows: UK, liar; France, liar in French; US, liar by weary enough to emit the parapraxis of “damned findings” instead of “damning” something or other; Germany, liar; Belgium, liar; Estonia, liar auditioning for future penholder gig.

Additionally, all of the lies told by the liars were based on the lies of the ignoble OPCW, which traded its once noble goals in a Mephistophelean pact with Dick Cheney, to eject Jose Bustani from its leadership.

Not only are its reports on Ltamenah and Khan Sheikhoun criminal lies against Syria — based on lies from al Qaeda, including the stethoscope-less White Helmets — its very reports admit that investigators did not enter either place because the safety of the investigators in the midst of al Qaeda havens could not be guaranteed.

His Excellency Vassily Nebenzia was on righteous fire. The videos of his statement and his exchange with the German liar who persisted in deviating from the lying topic of the OPCW lies against Syria, to lie that Russia had poisoned some silly ‘opposition’ guy that nobody ever heard of until he allegedly keeled over in flight, will be added to this report when they become available.

The UK liar chimed in to disgustingly reaffirm her country’s complete support of the organ trading, kidnapping, necrophiliac, pedonecrophiliac, criminally insane murdering White Helmets — who are also likely engaged in marketing abducted Syrian children on the dark web.

Just as Ambassador al Jaafari was about to speak, the French liar rudely interrupted and in English snarled her support of the criminal lies of the German, that had been hurled against the Russian ambassador.

As always, H.E. Jaafari threw pearls before swine.

As always, the noble diplomat used his intellect as a boxer uses his fists.

Huge number of human organs found in one of terrorists’ hideouts in Syria

Wednesday, 29 July 2020 16:34

Syrian army units in cooperation with residents found a huge number of human organs  saved inside transparent bottles including chloroform in one the hideouts of terrorists in Ghadfeh village in Maarret al-Noaman region in south Idlib.  According to the Syrian News Agency (SANA), one of the doctors turned a home, located 10 km to the east of Maarret al-Noaman into a laboratory where human organs, including heads, eyes, hearts and other organs were saved in bottles.  Names of men and women were written on the bottles.  Terrorist groups have used the sale of human organs as a way to finance their terrorist acts, especially in norh Syria.  Western media reports have talked about the abduction of dozens of children and women with the aim of stealing their human organs. Turkish brokers are running the sale of organs, according to media reports.

The hideout included a room detected for religious studies with radical books and publications. This indicates that the militants were not members of a gang, but rather of a Jihadi group.

Al-Ghadfah, which is located in the vicinity of the city of Ma`arat al-Nu`man, was controlled by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham. The town was liberated by the SAA and its allies a few months ago.

Greater Idlib is known to be a hub for organ traders in Syria. Turkey is the main market for this horrific trade. Militants in the region rely on organ trading, among other criminal activities, as a means to finance their terrorist operations.

Turkey, which deployed thousands of troops and loads of equipment in Greater Idlib over the past few months, is turning a blind eye to illicit activities in the region.

US TO GRANT $35 MILLION TO PROMOTE ITS FAKE NEWS BUBBLE IN SYRIA & CONTROL LOCAL MEDIA

Fake News Media

January 24, 2020, RT.comAlthough Western media has a shoddy track record of lying on Syria (and Libya, Iraq…), the US State Department will pump $35 million more into future war propaganda on Syria, under the guise of promoting honest reporting. 

A US State Department grant, “Support for Independent Media in Syria,” is unabashed in stating one of its main goals is “to advance U.S. Government policy objectives in Syria.”

That is probably the sole honest clause in the grant description: that it is in the end about US self-serving, hegemonic objectives in Syria.

The description goes on to claim these goals include the defeat of ISIS—although the illegal US-led coalition has attacked Syrian army positions on numerous occasions, ensuring the advance (not defeat) of ISIS in those areas. One of the most glaring instances being the September 2016 repeated attacks on the Syrian army in Deir ez-Zor province, which saw ISIS take over the region.

The US assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, recognized in the region as the man responsible for the near-defeat of ISIS, is another notable example of the US goals being to prolong, not defeat, ISIS in the region.

With their grant, the US plans to “advance human rights and promote tolerance and dialogue between ethnic and religious communities,” which is again morbidly laughable given that the US has been supporting wahhabi and other extremists whose human rights track records include caging, torturing, raping, and starving civilians, and public executions.

It wouldn’t be American policy if the State Department grant didn’t include mention of countering “Russian disinformation” and ending the presence of “Iranian forces and proxies in Syria.”

However, removing Iranian forces isn’t within America’s right to do; Syria invited Iran, Russia and other allies to actually fight terrorism in Syria, as opposed to the US-led occupation forces. And as discussed, it isn’t Russia that has the track record of disinfo on Syria, that honour goes to America and allies.

Western outlets in chorus promoted the accusations of Syria/Russia preventing food and aid into eastern Aleppo (even Reuters reported“rebels” had stockpiled aid) and Madaya and eastern Ghouta (none was true).

Western media sold the story of Russia/Syria bombing the home of Omran Daqneesh (didn’t happen), of the al-Quds hospital being “reduced to rubble” by Russian/Syrian bombing (didn’t happen), and a litany of other grotesque war propaganda stories.

[READ: Absurdities of Syrian war propaganda ]

Suddenly we’re meant to find credible journalists who embed with al-Qaeda and whitewash their crimes, and media which have on many occasions used photos not even in Syria to accompany sensationalist war propaganda stories. 

CNN and western media got it wrong about Omran Daqneesh, but I haven’t even seen any retractions for this lie.

And yet the US wants people to believe that the independent voices and Russian and Syrian media who actually reported factually and honestly on these and other issues…are not credible. 

The US wants people to live in a fake news bubble, where the narratives are controlled by the war mongers. And, strangely, America seemingly wants Syrians to be subjected to media that reports opposite of the reality they are living. As if after nine years of enduring Western (and Gulf) media’s lies Syrians will suddenly believe them and decide to overthrow the president they elected (and support)? America is grasping at straws…

The OPCW Truth Bombs

Western nations accuse Russia of disinformation around whether Syria used a chemical weapon in Douma, eastern Ghouta.

In April 2018, Western media pounced on and promoted the White Helmets’ lies, shedding crocodile tears over civilians allegedly exposed to a chemical agent, at the same time ignoring or mocking the testimonies of 17 Syrians from Douma (including the boy starring in the White Helmets’ hoax video). 

Turns out the body tasked to examine this accusation omitted from its final report key findings that poke massive holes in the (West’s) official narrative around Douma. Not one, but many revelations have been leaked about the critical omissions of the OPCW  report. 

The only ones taking this seriously are mainly Russia, Syria and independent researchers. In the face of these recent revelations, most Western media have largely thus far been silent.

Similarly, Western media didn’t cover the December 2018 panel detailing damning findings on the White Helmets’ association (and membership) with terrorist groups in Syria, and their involvement in staging chemical attacks and in organ harvesting…

[READ: Organ theft, staged attacks: UN panel details White Helmets’ criminal activities, media yawns ]

In the State Department’s quest for truthful reporting, one of the issues to be protected seemingly at all costs is of course the White Helmets (and the chemical hoaxes they help stage).

Anyone who has seriously researched the White Helmets, much less bothered to interview Syrian civilians about the fake rescue group, knows their footage and claims are as credible as the words of nurse Nayirah, Colin Powell, or the entries of Wikipedia.

Journalists who bothered to interview medical staff in Douma following the chemical hoax were told that doctors were treating patients with normal wartime injuries when “strangers” (including White Helmets members) entered yelling about a chemical attack, creating a panic (and demonstrating a lack of medical skills), and filming the scene with then 11 year old Hassan Diab.

[READ: Syrian civilians from ground zero expose chemical hoax ]

Diab was one of the Syrians dismissed by western media when he testified to the OPCW that he had not been subject to a chemical attack but had been used by the White Helmets. For Western media, only some children are credible (exploited)…when it suits their narrative.

One such youth, Muhammad, gained notoriety when eastern Ghouta was being liberated. Like the Aleppo child Bana before him, the Ghouta teen had an account in his name on Twitter (the dodgy logistics of which I raised in my last article) and was busy parroting the accusations.

Incidentally, Ghouta (to the silence of media which claimed concern in 2018) is rebuilding, in peace.

In any case, I get the feeling people are tired of lying Western media, chemical hoaxes and the antics of the White Helmets. I certainly see propaganda apologists getting called out on Twitter more than prior, and people are extremely skeptical of chemical weapons accusations.

As Vassily Nebenzia said of the OPCW official report on Douma: “Humpty-Dumpty, as we know, “sat on a wall, had a great fall and all the king’s horses, all the king’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again”. I mean, that is exactly what happened to FFM report. Exactly.”

On Chosen-mess

June 24, 2019  /  Gilad Atzmon

choseness.jpg

 By Gilad Atzmon

A few days ago the BBC reported on an extraordinary French identity theft scam.  For two years starting in late 2015, an individual or individuals impersonating France’s defence minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian, scammed an estimated €80m from wealthy French patriots.

The victims of this fraud were tricked into believing that they were being contacted by France’s Defence Minister who was requesting money to help pay ransom for journalists held hostage by Islamists in the Middle East. Since France officially does not pay ransom to terrorists, the fake minster assured the victims that payments could not be traced and asked for the funds to be wired to a bank in China.

The BBC deemed the operation “one of the most outlandish and successful rackets of recent times.”

You may not be surprised that the accused evil genius behind this con is a French-Israeli character of Tunisian Jewish background named Gilbert Chikli. Chikli grew up in the working-class Belleville neighbourhood of northeast Paris.

In 2015, Chikli was found guilty of scamming money from French corporations by pretending to be their chief executive. By the time the verdict was reached, Chikli was safely ensconced in the Jewish State, which refuses to extradite its nationals.

Chikli’s luck ran out in August 2017 when he made the mistake of travelling to Ukraine where he was arrested at the request of the French police. Chikli told police he was on a pilgrimage to the tomb of a well-known rabbi. But a search into his phone’s communication revealed that he went to Ukraine to buy a silicone mask

The alleged crime saga didn’t end there. Recently reports began to arrive at French embassies around the world that once again a fake Le Drian, now French foreign minster, was trying to squeeze money out of influential ‘friends of France’. In February, three French-Israeli citizens were arrested near Tel Aviv in connection with this new swindle.

Chikli’s racket is astonishing, creative; criminologists may decide that it borders on genius. Although Chikli didn’t invent the art of the swindle, he ratcheted it up to a higher level.

What I find remarkable about Chikli’s operation is not the stunning amounts of money, the sophistication, or even the chutzpah involved: it is the fact that Chikli ’s scam was dependent upon the humane compassion of others. He banked on the fact that humans feel and care for each other.  We are dealing with a disgraceful blow against the most precious aspect of humanity, that which sustains kindness and brotherhood.

It is not surprising that some very wealthy and influential people fell for Chikli’s racket and for the obvious reason: decent humans would find it hard or even impossible to imagine the extent of Chikli and his friends’ deception.

And Chikli is not alone in his practices. In recent years we have seen a number of instances of gross misbehavior and abuse and on a spectacular  scale. And as is the case of Chikli we find Jews and Israelis at the centre of these embarrassing  sagas.

In 2010  an Israeli court ruled that seven Israelis suspected of scamming tens of millions of dollars from U.S. pensioners in a so-called ‘Nigerian scam’ could be extradited to the United States to face trial there. Israel has bought itself a reputation as the location of some of the most horrendous crimes such as organ trafficking (look here and here), and is notorious as a hub of human trafficking,  blood diamondcrypto currency criminalsthe binary options scam, and the scope of gross unethical behavior extends well beyond the borders of the Jewish State.

In 2012  Britain was shocked to discover that one of its most popular TV stars was a serial pedophile who had committed sex crimes against children throughout his 50 year career.  Jimmy Savile raped children in the BBC’s dressing rooms, in orphan homes and in institutions that cared for the disabled. No one bothered to defend Jimmy Saville. Yet when Lord Janner faced similar allegations, the British establishment was somehow hesitant and confused. Despite the fact that Lord Janner was suspected of sexually abusing more than 30 children from the mid-1950s until the late 1980s the British judicial system found itself struggling.

Janner, a former Leicester MP (Labour) was the chairman of the Board of Jewish Deputies (BOD), a body that claims to represent British Jewry and the founder of the Holocaust Educational Trust (HET). To date, neither the BOD nor the HET has expressed any regret for its past association with Janner who died at age 87 before a trial could take place.

Lord Janner’s family is taking good care to restore their father’s reputation.  Soon after the Lord passed away we learned from the British press  that Janner’s three grown-up children asked “to take part in the investigation into his alleged crimes.”

Outside the investigation’s London headquarters, Lord Janner’s son, Daniel Janner QC, attacked the “shambolic and discredited inquiry” (into his father alleged crimes).

He claimed there had been a “total failure” to acknowledge “our late father’s good character and legal status as innocent”

In February 2018 we learned that Lord Janner’s son vowed to bring a private prosecution against the man who initiated the Westminster child abuse claims, who has himself been charged with paedophile offences.

I am not in a position to verify whether Lord Janner was guilty of the crimes he was accused of but I can confirm that the enquiry into his suspected sex abuse has collapsed. In all, 33 men and women accused Lord Janner of abusing them. Their plight has been forgotten. One of the most embarrassing chapters in Britain’s past remains untouched.

Lord Janner is hardly alone as a suspect in an abusive sex scandal. For the last two years we have been learning about another Zionist enthusiast who left more than 80 victims traumatized, abused and humiliated.

In October 2017, The New York Times and The New Yorker reported that tens of women came forward and accused Harvey Weinstein, formerly head of Miramax Films and The Weinstein Company (TWC), of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse over a period of at least three decades. More than 80 women in the film industry have since accused Weinstein of such acts. Weinstein denied “any non-consensual sex”.

Jeffrey Epstein’s story is similarly abusive. The convicted sex offender prostituted dozens of underage girls and should have spent the rest of his life in jail. Again this is no ‘one-off’ abuse of an underage child, he was a serial sex predator.

According to Joseph Recarey, the lead Palm Beach detective on the case, Epstein was essentially operating a “sexual pyramid scheme.”

The Vox writes that the girls and women who reported abuse by Epstein, meanwhile, were markedly powerless. Most of them “came from disadvantaged families, single-parent homes or foster care,… Many of the girls were one step away from homelessness.”

In November 2017 the genius comedian Larry David was criticized in the Jewish press for admitting on Saturday Night Live that many of those accused of sexual harassment in Hollywood are Jewish.

Jews often brag about their genius gene pool and about the fact that so many Nobel Prize winners are Jewish (20%). Jews frequently boast about their power in politics, media and finance.  “Jews must never be afraid to use their well-earned power” was the title of a recent article by Alan Dershowitz, who was a member of Epstein’s legal team and was later accused by one of the victims’ lawyers of himself participating in the sex trafficking ring.

This raises the obvious question of whether the same ‘gene-pool’ that created so many spectacular Jewish minds is also responsible for the list of gross misconduct as illustrated above. I am not a biologist nor an evolutionary scientist, but I admit I am not a great believer in the notion of a ‘Jewish gene.’

I contend that Chikli, Janner, Weinstein and Epstein have something else in common. Their actions display a dismissal of others that verges on complete contempt for humanity. This is the crux of choseness. To be chosen is to see oneself as an exceptional creation. It entails blindness to otherness. It is a form of impunity. To be chosen often involves a near or total lack of empathy.  Such lack is often defined in terms of acute narcissism and psychopathy.  Chikli is clearly aware of the human inclination for empathy, it is that impulse that he allegedly exploited to his own benefit, he just lacks that empathic quality himself.

Not every Jew identifies him or herself as chosen. None of the Jews in my social circuit displays any of the horrid symptoms described above. As a reader of early Zionist texts, I know well that Zionism was born to emancipate Diaspora Jews from their exceptionalist cultural traits and to make them ‘people like all other people.’ I am also aware  that some rabbinical Judaic interpretations of choseness are somehow different from the contemporary Zionist secular Jewish political interpretation of Jewish exceptionalism. Nor is choseness limited to Zionists or Israelis.  Choseness has become the pillar of Jewish self identification. Choseness is what binds Jews together. This includes anti Zionist Jews boasting about the precious contribution of the so-called ‘Jews in the movement’ and the Israelis and Zionists who celebrate their choseness at the expense of the indigenous people of Palestine.

 Like an early Zionist, I would have liked to see Jews liberate themselves from the choseness prison but I accept that such a shift can not occur in the form of a collective or political movement. The escape from choseness to the ordinary must be an individual struggle, a surrender to self-contempt that eventually matures into a genuine search for peace and harmony with the universe, with the soil and with one’s neighbours.

This Happens In Saudi Arabia, but What Is Still Hidden Can Be Even Worse

Zeinab Daher

In an interview with religious cleric Sheikh Hassan Saleh, a resident of Awamia who has been outside his homeland since 2015, and currently lives in the Iranian city of Qom, home of the world’s largest center for Shia scholarship, al-Ahed News learned some information about how the families of detainees and martyrs are living, but we are quite sure that many brutal measures are still unlearned.

Following last week’s massacre during which the Saudi regime beheaded, executed and crucified a total of 37 men, falsely claiming that they practiced ‘acts of terror’ inside the kingdom, Sheikh Saleh told al-Ahed News some still unknown fact, hoping that they reach the world amid the total silence intended to take place inside the kingdom of terror.

Asked about the families of martyrs following the tragedy, Sheikh Saleh said they signed papers not to demand the bodies of their relatives.

“Any contact between them and any media outlet or on social media about their current situation, they will be punished by the authorities, their sons will be detained. They also have other sons on death row. For example, the Al Rabie family sacrificed two martyrs and still has another son behind bars who is also on death row. Such families fear for the other beloved ones as they were threatened. They were also banned from holding memorial ceremonies. Some people were detained because they participated in memorial ceremonies of previous martyrs.”

He further explained that it is very hard to learn the real situation via the Saudi media.

“There is oppression against Shia. When speaking of Shia, I don’t mean that they are being oppressed by the Sunnis. No! The tyranny is practiced by the Wahhabi ideology there. Some people thing that the Shia are oppressed by the Wahhabis, Sunnis are also oppressed there. The Wahhabi ideology had involved itself among the Sunnis.”

“The Wahhabi oppression against us was not practiced against any people in the world.”

Organ theft

“We’ve witnessed –at the time when the government was still handing people the bodies of their martyrs- many signs of autopsy on many bodies of the previous martyrs. Many of our martyrs, who fell on the ground, were hit with non-fatal shots. At the time, when the bodies were returned, we used to witness the signs of autopsy. Many physicians also indicated that the organs of those bodies had been removed.”

For those who were recently executed, bodies were not handed to their families. Any Shiite the government kills, it doesn’t hand his body. This is a proof on the body organs theft of those martyrs, the cleric said.

Relatively, many of the martyrs became disabled as a result of the torture; Said Skafi, Mujtaba Sweikat, Munir Adam… also Martyr Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, had disability before they beheaded him. The regime doesn’t need their ‘forced consent’ to remove their organs.

Torture until death

Martyr Said Skafi suffered from severe trembling as a result of torture on the first days of his arrest. He continued suffering from face hemiplegia for over a year. After starting to recover, Said then started suffering from hemorrhoids for which he repeatedly demanded treatment but was always denied. Consequently, Said’s both physical and psychological health deteriorated, he was later anesthetized for some three days inside the hospital of the General Investigations Prison in al-Dammam. He received the last visit on April 11, and had his last phone call with his family on April 16, a week ahead of his beheading, without learning anything that this would be his fate.

Burying the bodies

“The Saudi regime does bury the bodies in a special place designated for those it executes. Yet martyrs are not buried as per the rituals of the religion they belong to. They also don’t set any gravestone that indicates to whom this tomb belongs. They pretend that the body of any executed individual has not sanctity, what if it belongs to the Shia,” Sheikh Saleh said.

“As per the Wahhabi ideology, we are infidels! We don’t have sanctity when we are alive, then what about after we die. The matter is not only about those martyrs, we have around 100 martyrs whose bodies haven’t been handed yet. Some families have bodies of two of their sons not handed…the al-Faraj family for example sacrificed more than 4 martyrs.”

The farewell call

As every week, the martyrs called their families on the same day they were executed. They saluted their families without having any earlier notice that it is the last day of their lives. The families even didn’t believe as they learned the news from social media and news outlets. They thought they were rumors. They didn’t believe it at first.

Personal testimony

The Sheikh told us of his own story of suffering with the Saudi authorities

My brother was arrested only because he contacted me. As an opposition member, I am not allowed to talk to my brother.

Back to my brother, he was arrested because he contacted me in an issue the government wanted him to talk to me about. My house was among the many houses destroyed in the al-Mosawara neighborhood, and my father died when I was outside the country; so, as per law, I have to sign whether I allow them to destroy the house or not. I didn’t sign the papers to destroy mu house, I neither signed the papers to receive money in exchange of the house. My brother contacted me in this regard. He said he wanted an authorization from me so he can receive the money, but I didn’t accept. Later on, they detained him.

They also wanted to trap me. I have a disabled son who is studying at a specialized rehabilitation center in Jordan. My detained brother used to take care of my son as I couldn’t go there. So, after they detained my brother, they banned my family members from visiting my son there. Now, it’s been almost two years since I last contacted them. After that, my son’s school called me saying if I didn’t go there they will expel him after a week. I told them how comes you expel him and he is disabled? They said it is not of their business because the Saudi embassy doesn’t accept that anymore. I myself was delaying the issue until the Jamal Khashoggi case emerged to the surface and everyone was busy with it, then my son’s issue was neglected. Otherwise, they wanted me to go there for him so they can take me to Saudi Arabia or perhaps do the same as they did with Khashoggi.

My brother’s only crime was contacting me, they further threatened him that they will bring me and kill me in front of his sight. They also summoned my mother and threatened to detain her but said they won’t because she is old. My mother is 80-years old, she was summoned for interrogation just because I contacted her on the Eid al-Fitr of two years ago to greet her. After that, my family sent me through a friend a message not to contact them anymore.

In the spotlight

There are still many detainees who are suffering from disabilities and diseases as a result of the torture and being denied medical treatment. In addition, they are on death row making their life in grave danger so that they might be executed at any moment, not to mention that all of them were forced to sign on committing the crimes they are accused of. Some of them attempted to commit suicide due to the torture. Some of them see death better than being humiliated and tortured on a daily basis. Some of the martyrs had signed on committing crimes that happened while they were already behind bars! The regime claims that they have taken part in killing servicemen, however, there is no evidence that they had carried weapons over the course of their lives.

Martyr Ahmad al-Rabie was executed because he ‘covered up’ the place where his brother Hussein was. Many were arrested because of ‘covering up’ the whereabouts of their relatives.

For example, martyrs Abdullah al-Sreih, Hussein al-Rabie and Muntadher Subeiti were human rights activists. They had peaceful demands and organized peaceful protests. But the regime wants to deliver a message to the Shia before Sunnis that any movement is considered against the kingdom’s guardian and hence considered an ‘act of terror’.

When the family of Sheikh Mohammad al-Atiyah held a memorial ceremony for his martyrdom, the Saudi regime forces’ came up with armored vehicles, they stormed the area and banned them from continuing the event.

The Saudi regime’s hostages

In the same context of terrifying people, the Saudi regime took from every family of a martyr, detainee or a wanted a hostage member so that –fearing the fate of the other ones- the families won’t demand for the bodies of martyrs, and the detainees be forced to sign the papers that find them guilty despite not committing those crimes, and the wanted ones would surrender. Besides, the regime also bans the families of the detainees and the wanted from the essential living services.

This is a story of what we have learned, bringing it to the world to share it until everybody knows that there is a people in a forgotten land, who are suffering to survive with dignity.

And as late martyr Ayatollah Sheikh Nirm Baqir al-Nimr had once said, “Either we live on this land as free people, or be buried inside it as dignified,” the people of Qatif will still sacrifice.

This is our story to you, if you have learned any other one, humanely do not hesitate to share!

A council that is on the brink of financial collapse was willing to spend tens of thousand of tax payers money hiring one of Britain’s most expensive law firms just to stop me playing saxophone with the Blockheads 4 days ahead of Christmas. Why? Because one ultra rightwing Pro Israeli activist complained that he would feel uncomfortable with me on stage. I guess that this sums up what British Labour 2018 is. Let’s hope they improve in 2019 but I don’t hold my breath.

Syria: White Helmets Engaged In Organ Trafficking, Aiding Terrorists, Looting

Local Editor

The Western-backed so-called White Helmets group engaged in organ trafficking, terrorist logistics support and looting in Syria, according to a report presented to the UN.

The evidence was presented by the director of the Russia-based Study of Democracy Foundation Maxim Grigoriev on Thursday.

The report is based on interviews with over 100 eyewitnesses, including 40 White Helmets members, 50 local residents and 15 former terrorist fighters.

Over 500 civilians were also surveyed in the Syrian cities of Aleppo and Deraa.

“There is overwhelming evidence which proves that the White Helmets centers were permanently engaged in building fortifications for battle positions for terrorist and illegal armed groups who had been supplying them with water and food and evacuating wounded terrorists from the front line,” said Grigoriev.

Grigoriev detailed how the group provided logistics support for armed groups, assisting in transporting troops and supplies.

The researcher went on to quote a White Helmets member from the formerly terrorist-held Syrian town of Douma saying, “for instance, we dug trenches in the towns of Mesraba and al-Shaifuniya and constructed an earthen mound.”

The director presented harrowing accounts indicating the group’s involvement in human organ trafficking.

“People evacuated by the White Helmets often did not come back alive,” Grigoriev said quoting a witness from an area where the group operated.

“For example, a person receives a minor injury, is rescued, evacuated and then brought back with their stomach cut open and with their internal organs missing.”

Citing reports from the organization’s members in the Syrian town of Saqba, the study also revealed extensive corruption within the group’s network, with leaders making private gains out of donations and members looting the civilian population.

“Sometimes we came to help, entered a flat, and, if we found gold or jewelry, seized it,” Grigoriev quoted a White Helmets member in Douma. “In one flat, there was a woman who felt ill, we came to help her, found some gold and stole it.”

Reiterating previous reports about the group’s attempts at staging civilian casualties and chemical attacks, Grigoriev pointed to a particular case in Jisr al Haj, Aleppo where trash was set on fire and bodies were brought from a local morgue to stage a filmed rescue.

A written testimony from a White Helmet member claimed that everyone involved had received an extra $50 for the effort.

Grigoriev went on to explain that “undeniable evidence” indicated the group had been taking written orders from terrorist groups and that almost all group members were paid staff, not volunteers.

The evidence, the researcher said, proved that the White Helmets is not an “aid group” but an extension of terrorist groups in Syria.

“Facebook accounts of members of the White Helmets are full of propagandist materials of terrorist groups, including [Daesh] and al-Qaeda, praising Osama bin Laden and other individuals listed by the UN as terrorists,” added Grigoriev.

The director highlighted that “hundreds of photos with weapons in their hands” were available on social media.

Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia, who was also present at the UN hearing, said the evidence showed that “the White Helmets deserve to be on the United Nations’ designated terrorist list.”

The so-called White Helmets group, projected by the West as “civil defense workers,” was established by former British Army officer James Le Mesurier in 2014.

The self-styled volunteer group has been repeatedly accused of acting as the media arm for Takfiri terrorist groups, and charged with staging false flag chemical attacks in a bid to prompt Western military intervention in Syria.

In July, several hundred people affiliated with the group were evacuated from southern Syria to “Israel” amid a successful Syrian Army operation in the region.

The UK, Canada, and Germany have proudly announced interest in accepting the White Helmets as refugees.

Inside Idlib’s Hornet’s Nest: Slavery, Organ Sales And White Helmets Being Trained

Editor’s note: After a short contact with the representative of the Syrian Army, some shocking facts about the radical’s activity in the region were exposed.

The creation of demilitarization zone in northern Syria was announced last week. The joint decision of Moscow and Ankara was supported among a number of pro-Turkish groups. However, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), Huras al-Din, and the Turkistan Islamic Party armed groups have rejected the Idlib agreement.

It’s obvious, that the agreement between Russia and Turkey is a temporary project aimed at stopping the bloodshed and restoring sovereignty. Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad in an interview with Al-Watan newspaper reaffirmed the Syria government’s resolve to recapture Idlib from terrorists by any means necessary.

While the parties that have agreed are trying to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, the terrorists seek to seize the ‘last opportunity’ to earn some money. Their fate has already been determined, and they would need serious resources to take shelter in Turkey. Therefore, slavery, drug smuggling as well as trafficking of artifacts is still flourishing in the province.

First of all, the drug smuggling brings considerable profit to the various terrorist groups. Initially, the drugs are smuggled from Lebanon, and then they are packaged in Idlib and sent to Turkey via Afrin. There the psychotropic substances are transported by sea to Europe.

The same method is used by HTS for the illegal sale of human organs to the European continent. The locals who refuse to join the ranks of the terrorists are being kidnapped and smuggled to the Turkish towns of Antioch and Kiliss. The illegal surgery on the transplantation of donor organs under the auspices of the Turkish officials is being carried out there.

Besides, the radicals trade artifacts, which are still in high demand among collectors around the world. During the Syrian war, they plundered hundreds of historical and cultural sights and turned the ancient town of Sarmada, located not far from Turkey into a black market.

Within the frameworks of creation the demilitarization zone and to suppress the financing of militants in Idlib province, the Syrian Arab Army initiated a large-scale liberation operation. The government forces started patrolling the nearby areas in the southeast of the province for further creation of humanitarian corridors.

These measures have already yielded positive results. The terrorists’ network of underground tunnels used for bypassing observation posts was discovered by the Syrian servicemen not far from the Abu Duhur crossing. Moreover, last week the elite Tiger Forces took captive a terrorist named Abu Yahya, who tried to commit a terrorist attack at the border crossing when the locals were leaving the demilitarization zone.

After being interrogated, Abu Yahya said that he had fought in the ranks of HTS in a unit of 300 fighters. The captive added:

“I was trained in a camp near Saraqib along with my brothers for committing single terrorist attacks. I was quite impressed to see the White Helmets activists being trained there too.” 

The captive also reported that the U.S., Britain, and Turkish military instructors separated terrorists for the groups and taught them various disciplines as explosives engineering, artillery bombardment, urban battles, and preparation of suicide bombers. Most likely the White Helmets were trained on the proper handling of chemicals for the upcoming chemical weapons provocation.

The HTS field commanders are making every effort to set up a position of defense. By oppressing the locals and smuggling, the terrorists earn a big sum of money and recruit new fighters under the black banners. The longer it takes for the Idlib matter to be resolved, the more difficult the restoration of control over the region for the Syrian army will be.

It’s quite difficult to assume, how the situation will developed in Idlib as Russia and Turkey have entirely different interests in Syria. However, the results of their efforts should turn into the elimination of Idlib hornet’s nest.

Profanation of the Dead: ‘Waiting is the Worst Part,’ Says Palestinian Father

 

palestdead

[Ed. note – This issue of Israelis withholding the bodies of slain Palestinians is one I have covered in several previous posts, but the article below makes mention of some things I had not formerly been aware of, including the return of bodies that have been held for extended periods of time and the state of the corpses when they arrive into the hands of grieving families.

According to this report, the bodies at times come back disfigured, in some cases beyond recognition. Whether this is due to deliberate maiming and disfigurement carried out by the Israelis, or the result of prolonged storage in refrigerators in deplorable conditions, with the bodies reportedly “stacked on top of each other,” is not clear. The reporter doesn’t specify. And the reason for that may be because it’s hard for the families to even tell.

A question here is should we be surprised at any of this? The stated reason given by the Israelis is that the bodies are withheld so as to avoid “incitement” at funerals, but of course holding on to bodies for days, weeks, or months allows ample opportunity for organ harvesting as well. But let’s assume for a moment that organ harvesting is not a factor (the number of Palestinians killed on a monthly basis may in fact exceed the demand for organ transplants) and that the sole reason for incarcerating dead bodies is to eliminate the problems caused by incitement at funerals. This still does not explain the new policy just announced whereby burial in village cemeteries presumably is to be prohibited, with the dead being interned instead in cemeteries chosen by the police, possibly in unmarked graves or graves identified only by numbers.

This would fulfill the Jewish curse, Yimakh Shemo, or “may his name be blotted out,” considered one of the strongest curses in the Hebrew language and reserved for enemies of the Jews.

If the Yimakh Shemo is a factor, then it would suggest that withholding Palestinian bodies, and returning the corpses in a state of disfigurement, has little to do with curtailing “incitement,” and that the real motive is vengeance. ]

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — “We are hopeful,” Muhammad Elayyan said, as a few dozen Palestinians trickled into the quiet halls of Israel’s Supreme Court in Jerusalem on Monday. “These days, we have to see the glass as half full. We must stay hopeful.”

Elayyan is the father of one of seven slain Palestinians whose bodies are currently locked inside refrigerators in Israel’s mortuary in Jaffa,withheld from their grieving families since they were killed by Israeli forces after carrying out or allegedly carrying out attacks on Israelis.

Family members of the slain Palestinians and their supporters crowded into the Israeli courtroom, eagerly awaiting a decision on whether the bodies of their loved ones would be released to them, after months of appeals to the courts.

Courtroom guards periodically scolded attendees to quiet down during the hearing, as Hebrew-speaking Palestinians tried to quickly translate for those who couldn’t understand, while one man bowed his head in anxious anticipation and quietly recited Islamic prayers.

After a few minutes of private deliberation, the Supreme Court judges announced their decision to once again delay the release of the bodies until a government legal adviser was consulted, whose proposed resolution to the case is expected to be submitted to the courts by July 11, when a final decision could be made.

“The waiting is the worst part,” Elayyan, whose slain son Bahaa Elayyan has been held by Israel for more than eight months, told Ma’an outside the courtroom after the decision was announced, as his visibly disappointed wife stood by his side. “It is important for us to bury our loved ones so that we can say goodbye, and then move on with our lives.”

“Israel has made it so we are frozen in the stage of mourning. We have been mourning since October when our son was killed,” Elayyan said. “And we will continue to mourn until his body is finally returned to us and we can properly say goodbye.”

Israeli authorities dramatically escalated their policy of withholding slain Palestinian bodies since a wave of unrest swept across the Palestinian territory and Israel in October, so far leaving more than 220 Palestinians and some 32 Israelis killed.

The United Nations released a report in May stating that Israeli authorities have prohibited autopsies from being conducted on Palestinian corpses, and that the bodies were kept in poor and inhumane conditions, “stacked on top of each other.”

“The bodies returned to the families are often disfigured, sometimes beyond recognition, denying the families the right to accord, with dignity, final religious rites,” the report read.

Human rights organizations have also widely condemned the policy, with prisoners’ rights group Addameer calling it a form of “collective punishment” against Palestinians who had not been accused of any wrongdoing, also noting that it “adds to the severe grief and trauma of families of the deceased.”

Following the backlash and an appeal submitted on behalf of the families by Muhammad Mahmoud, an Addameer lawyer, the Israeli Supreme Court in Mayordered the release of nine Palestinian bodies, including 22-year-old Bahaa Elayyan.

The ruling recommended that the bodies be returned by June 6, the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

However, Israel’s Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan ordered that Israeli police suspend the return of the bodies just a few weeks after the ruling, claiming that the funeral of Alaa Abu Jamal had encouraged “incitement” against the Israeli state.

Seven months after 22-year-old Abu Jamal was killed by Israeli forces after carrying out an attack on Israeli civilians in October, his funeral was held in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabal al-Mukabbir.

Like other Palestinian families, Abu Jamal’s family were forced to abide by Israeli-imposed preconditions to hold the ceremony, including having to pay the Israeli state more than $10,000 as collateral against potential “incitement” and limiting the number of attendees to 50 people — conditions which Erdan said were violated during the funeral.

Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers were heavily deployed throughout the procession.

Funeral attendees had chanted “God is great,” a phrase used regularly during Muslim funerals, as well as “with our souls, with our blood, we sacrifice ourselves for you, martyr,” a variation on a popular Arabic political slogan.

Erdan called the scene “inadmissible by all standards and measurements everywhere, the more so in the capital Jerusalem,” in reference to the contested status of the holy city as the exclusive capital of the Jewish state of Israel, which is not recognized by the international community.

His decision effectively halted the implementation of the Supreme Court ruling, forcing the bereaved families, who had expected a long-awaited reprieve from their mourning, back into the Israeli courts.

The judges at Monday’s hearing ruled against the prosecutor’s reasoning to halt the return of bodies due to “incitement” during Abu Jamal’s funeral, and also rejected the prosecutor’s attempts to link arecent escalation of attacks to the release of Palestinian corpses.

Mahmoud, the Addameer lawyer, had attended Abu Jamal’s funeral, and underscored to the Israeli judges during the hearing that the conditions were in fact not violated during the funeral.

“We continue to accept all of the conditions set by Israel, and no one violated them or has plans to violate them in the future,” Mahmoud said to the court.

Mahmoud also announced that the families had accepted a new condition set by Israeli police in June that would prohibit Palestinians from holding funerals for the released bodies in their neighborhoods or villages, as the bodies would instead be buried in cemeteries chosen by the Israeli police.

The families’ main demand remains that exact dates be determined for the release of each body, while Israeli police are pushing the courts to allow them to exercise complete control over the timing based on Israel’s changing security assessments.

The prosecutor also reiterated a proposal made on Saturday night by Israeli leaders to build a special cemetery in Israel for Palestinians killed by Israeli forces to avoid returning the slain bodies to their families. The proposal was promptly rejected by the Supreme Court judges.

The proposal referred to what Palestinians have termed “cemeteries of numbers,” where Palestinians slain by Israeli forces have been buried. The cemeteries, where the remains of 262 Palestinians are believed to be held, were built in undisclosed locations in Israel, with only numbers marking each grave. However, the policy was reversed in 2004.

After Monday’s court hearing, member of Israel’s Parliament, the Knesset, Osama Saadi, said “We are demanding a simple humanitarian solution to this case, which is for the Israeli government to give back the corpses to their families so they can be buried in cemeteries.”

Saadi added that he was confident that the courts would order the release of the bodies in line with the ruling in May.

“We will continue to organize and resist,” Elayyan told Ma’an on his way out of the courthouse. “When they return our children’s bodies, then we will move to punish those who did this to us. We will submit a complaint to the international courts.”

Daesh trafficking-selling human organs [of injured Syrian citizens-refugees and its wounded militants] in active complicity with Israeli and Turkish staff ~ [Reports]

Report: ISIL Kills Its Wounded Militants to Sell Body Organs

(FNA, 19/4/2016) ~ The ISIL (Daesh, ISIS, IS) Takfiri terrorist group has boosted its organ trade by killing its own militants who have been injured in heavy clashes with the Syrian government troops and popular forces in order to sell their body organs, media reports said.

“Doctors were threatened to take out the body organs of a wounded ISIL militant,” the Arabic-language al-Sabah newspaper quoted an unnamed source in the city of Mosul.

The Takfiri terrorists are suffering shortage of budget after their recent loss of territory in the Southern part of Mosul and for the same reason it is killing its own militants who have been injured in Southern Mosul to take out their body organs such as hearts and kidneys to sell them in the black market.

In a relevant development last month, media reports said that the ISIL terrorist group was using organ harvesting as a way to finance its operations and save the lives of injured members, media reports said on Tuesday.

The Spanish daily El Mondo reported that facing the increased number of wounded members in the Syrian army and popular forces’ attacks, the ISIL is using the body organs of its captives for transplantation.

According to the report, the ISIL also forces the prisoners in Mosul jails to donate blood and postpones the execution of those sentenced to death to use their blood as much as possible.

The ISIL doesn’t merely use the organs of its captives and prisoners’ bodies for transplantation to its members but it sells them to other countries as a lucrative business, it added.

Medical sources told El Mondo that the personnel in one of hospitals in Mosul have seen corpses of at least 183 people whose organs had been taken out of their bodies.

According to the report, the ISIL has set up a medical team in Mosul headed by a German physician which exports the body organs to Syria and the Iraqi Kurdistan region for transplantation to its members or selling.

Iraqi Ambassador to the United Nations Mohamed Alhakim had made the same revelations last year, saying that the ISIL is trafficking human organs and has executed a dozen doctors for failing to go along with the program.

Alhakim based his claim on the discovery of dozens of bodies left in shallow mass graves near the city of Mosul, currently an ISIL stronghold. Surgical incisions, along with missing kidneys and other body parts lead to an inescapable conclusion. “We have bodies. Come and examine them. It is clear they are missing certain parts,” Alhakim revealed. He further described the carnage:

“When we discover mass graves, we look at the bodies. Some of those bodies are killed by bullets, some of them by knives. But when you find pieces of the back is missing and the kidneys is missing, you will wonder what it is.”

Seized ISIL Documents: “Harvesting of Organs” and A Department for “War Spoils”

(FNA, 29/12/2015) ~ In May 2015, US Special Operation Forces conducted a raid on the ISIL stronghold of al-Raqqa in eastern Syria. The hunt was the terror Organization’s top commander known as Aby Sayyaf, who oversaw the gas and oil operations.

However, a treasure of seized documents that disclose the group’s deepest secrets is not less valuable than the financial treasurer.

The documents, issued by ISIL’ Research and Fatwa Committee, outline the mechanisms and religious justifications by which it deals with a number of issues, RT said in a report.

Some of the [documents] explicitly and brazenly grant Wahhabi jihadists the permission to transplant healthy organs from the “apostate’s” body into a Muslim in order to save the latter’s life or replace a damaged organ, even if the cost was his [the apostate] life.

Oddly enough, however opposes the group’s ideology is labeled ‘apostate”.

The Wahhabi interpretation of Islam adopted by ISIL has even pushed them further. For them [ISIL] it is permissible to kill an apostate and eat his flesh if deemed necessary. Thus, incarnating Cannibalism in its ugliest practices.

A deeper insight into how the group makes its money is also revealed. Documents obtained by Reuters confirm that ISIL has set up departments to handle war spoils including male slaves, sex slaves (Sabaya), confiscated movable and immovable assets.

The sex-obsessed group has obviously made efforts to organize the wild sex appeals of its fighters through giving them the undeniable right to have sex with the enslaved women captured from vanquishing ‘infidels’.

A booklet entitled “From Creator’s Rulings on Capturing Prisoners and Enslavement” was entirely dedicated to this matter. Other departments to supervise the lucrative oil and gas trade, framing the statehood image have been also established.

Israeli Man Arrested in Istanbul for Selling Syrian Refugees’ Body Organs

(FNA, 8/12/2015) ~ Turkish police arrested an Israeli man for selling the body organs of the Syrian refugees in Istanbul.

Boris Walker also known as Boris Wolfman was arrested for performing illegal surgeries on the Syrian refugees in small Turkish clinics.

Patients illegally receiving an organ had to pay between €70,000 and €100,000, according to an indictment lodged against him, whereas the refugee organ donors received very small amount of money, resulting in tens of thousands of euros in profit for each transplant.

Wolfman was wanted by the Interpol, the international police organization, for past organ trafficking.

The organ trafficker had put ads in the Russian newspapers to find potential donors. Wolfman did not explain to the donors about the physical and mental risks they face, denying them any information they needed to have before making their decision.

A Turkish court ruled to extradite Wolfman back to Israel after a 40-day arrest period.

Wolfman has previously been charged with organ trafficking and organizing illegal transplants in Kosovo, Azerbaijan, and Sri Lanka, in a series of alleged offenses committed between 2008 and 2014.

In Kosovo, organ donors were allegedly released without any medical supervision, explanation about needed medical treatments, or critical health advice. At least one teenage boy, who had his kidney removed, was paralyzed after not receiving proper treatment.

The black market for organs has been flourishing in the Middle East in the past few years, with the influx of millions of refugees. In 2013, Lebanese smugglers told Der Spiegel that, because of the desperation in which many refugees live, there are “more sellers than buyers.

Many refugees have lost everything, and have given smugglers their life savings and even sacrificed their lives in dangerous voyages in hopes of seeking asylum in a European continent that has been largely hostile to their arrival.

Almost 4.3 million Syrian refugees are registered with the UN. Millions are crowded into densely population refugee camps in neighboring Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon. Many live on the street, and few have access to basic resources or job prospects.

Traffickers have taken advantage of Syrian refugees’ desperation, in hopes of making money.

Iraq: ISIL Trafficking Human Organs

(FNA, 18/2/2015) ~ The Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations said the country has evidence of possible organ trafficking by the ISIL terrorists.

The Iraqi government has found evidence of possible organ trafficking by the ISIL terrorists in recent weeks in mass graves containing 10 to 20 bodies each, said Iraq’s Ambassador to the UN Mohamed Ali Alhakim at a UN Security Council session in New York on Tuesday, adding that the bodies had incisions on their backs, al-Bawaba reported.

“Some of the bodies we have found are mutilated, some parts are missing,” Alhakim said. “Why would a part be missing? It’s another form of financing.”

“These terrorist groups have desecrated all human values. They have committed the most heinous criminal terrorist acts against the Iraqi people whether Shiite, Sunni, Christians, Turkmen, Shabak or Yazidis,” he stated.

“These are in fact crimes of genocide committed against humanity that must be held accountable before international justice,” Alhakim added.

The Iraqi envoy also said the militants had killed ten doctors in the past weeks for refusing to remove organs from bodies.

The 15-member UN body adopted a resolution on February 12 aimed at blocking off the revenues of the group operating in Syria and Iraq.

In his final address to the Security Council as special representative and head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq, Nikolay Mladenov said that while the ISIL continued to commit severe crimes against men, women and children, the country’s political, community and religious leaders had “coalesced to save their country from terror”.

Mladenov further expressed concerns about the safety of the civilians in ISIL-controlled regions. He said stakes are particularly high for thousands of women and children still in captivity of the terrorists.

The UN envoy to Iraq said that 60 percent of humanitarian operations in Iraq were likely to shut down or be curbed unless funding was received in the coming weeks.

The ISIL militants took control of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul in June 2014 before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland. Militants had earlier captured some areas in neighboring Syria.

Mladenov went on to say that violence left at least 12,000 civilians dead and more than 23,000 people injured in 2014 alone as a result of the violence perpetrated by the militants.

Israeli Women Sell Organs Due to Economic Distress

(FNA, 23/4/2014) ~ Many young Israeli women agree to sell their organs because of their dire economic situation, police report said.

The women reportedly travelled to Turkey to undergo surgery. The removed organs, usually kidneys, were then transplanted into patients, press tv reported.

“This is a very severe case involving the exploitation of young women in very serious economic distress, who were convinced to travel to other countries and donate their organs, with some having second thoughts at the end of the process, only to realize it was too late,” said officer Peretz Amar, commander of the Negev subdistrict police.

According to Israeli police on Tuesday, an inquiry has begun into an international organ trafficking ring stretching from Israel to Turkey. The probe is focused on the Southern Israeli town of Be’er Sheva and involves cases of women aged 18 to 20.

A physician from central Israel is also suspected of carrying out tissue tests of the patients and the donors and advising them before the surgery, police said.

A report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in August 2013 indicated, “The incomes of about one in five Israeli households fall below the (relative) poverty line.”

In 2012, at least 10 Israeli citizens were arrested for membership in an organ trafficking gang. It also included organs of the Palestinians killed by the Israelis.

Israel admitted in 2009 that it had harvested organs from dead Palestinians without permission from their next of kin in the 1990s.

Turkish Hospitals Traffick Injured Syrian Citizens’ Organs

(FNA, 5/2/2014) ~ Turkish hospitals which receive the wounded Syrian citizens steal their body organs to be sold in the black market.

According to a report by the Lebanese al-Safir daily, trafficking the injured Syrian people’s body organs is a phenomenon which has intensified in Turkish governmental hospitals.

Ahmad Abdulkarim Muhammad, a 19-year-old young Syrian, is one of the victims of this phenomenon. He was injured in Syria in January and was transferred to Antakya hospital in Southern Turkey and died after a few days.

Despite being transferred to the hospital for head injuries, a video released after his death shows that his abdomen has gone under surgery operations which indicates stealing of his vital organs, including kidneys, liver, etc.

Earlier reports also said that Turkish authorities are engaged in trafficking body organs of injured Syrians that are taken to Turkey for treatment.

The Lebanese newspaper al-Diyar reported that Turkish authorities transfer young injured Syrians to certain hospitals in the Turkish cities of Antakya and Iskenderun.

The report added that the Turks leave the injured Syrians alone to die after their body organs are removed in the hospitals. The dead are later sent to the Syrian border region to be buried.

Turkish doctors have confirmed that out of 62,000 injured Syrian civilian and military people who were transported into Turkey, body organs of over 15,600 of them were excised and their bodies were sent back into Syria to be buried, al-Diyar stated.

Turkish officials have made no comments over the issue so far.

The Lebanese newspaper also states that the body organs, including livers, kidneys and hearts are given to people waiting for treatment in Turkey.

Al-Diyar said European scientific websites acknowledged that body organ transplantation operations had increased in Turkey over the past two years, since the beginning of the crisis in Syria.

Palestinian Buried After Body Withheld for 65 Days

65days

[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 UNwhen 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.]

Ma’an News

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli intelligence handed over the body of Musab Mahmoud al-Ghazali to his family for him to be buried on Sunday night, 65 days after he was killed by Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem.

Al-Ghazali, a 26-year-old Palestinian from the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, was shot dead on Dec. 26 after Israeli police say he pulled a knife on an officer in Allenby Square in Jerusalem.

However, a witness on the scene said that al-Ghazali had not been holding a knife when he was killed.

Al-Ghazali’s family said at the time that the young man suffered from mental disabilities, and denied that he would have carried out an attack. They accused Israeli forces of “executing him in cold blood.”

Al-Ghazali’s body was returned to its family entirely covered in ice due to being kept refrigerated in Israeli custody.

“The family committed to the conditions but Israel did not,” al-Ghazali’s uncle, Majd al-Ghazali, told Ma’an. “The family asked for them to take the body out of the morgue 24 to 48 hours before handing over the body so the ice would melt, but we were shocked that the ice was still on Musab’s body.”

A lawyer for prisoners rights organization Addameer said only 30 people were allowed to attend al-Ghazali’s funeral, which was held with Israeli police and army forces deployed in the area.

Al-Ghazali’s sister, 22-year-old Rawan, was prevented from attending the funeral, as her name was allegedly not mentioned in the list of people allowed to be at the funeral.

“Israel is using the chaos as an excuse that is why they handed him over after midnight, with a list with only 30 attending,” al-Ghazali’s uncle said.

Israeli authorities also prevented any video recording or photography of the body, and seized the cell phones of people attending the funeral, the lawyer added.

Israeli authorities had announced that they would release al-Ghazali’s body three weeks earlier, on Feb. 6.

Al-Ghazali’s family had to comply with strict conditions regarding the time and size of the funeral, as well pay 20,000 shekels ($5,150) as collateral, before Israel released the body. Similar preconditions have been set on the families of other Palestinians whose relatives’ bodies were held by Israeli authorities.

Since a wave of unrest swept the occupied Palestinian territory at the beginning of October, Israel has routinely held the bodies of Palestinians it says were attempting to attack Israelis.

Israel’s Public Security Ministry said in mid-October that the bodies of alleged Palestinians attackers would no longer be returned to their families and would instead by buried in “secret.”

A spokesperson for the ministry said at the time the decision was made in order to stem protests that frequently accompany the funerals of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces.

However, Israel’s withholding of bodies has only further stoked tensions in the occupied Palestinian territory, and Israeli authorities have since returned many of them of them to their families, on what they refer to as a “case-by-case” basis.

In January, PLO Secretary-General Saeb Erekat called on the Middle East Quartet to pressure Israel to return the bodies of alleged Palestinian attackers still being held by the Israeli authorities.

He said that withholding the bodies of Palestinians was a form of “collective punishment” by Israel against the Palestinian people, which he described as illegal under international law.

Withholding the Dead: One of Israel’s More Macabre Practices

One of Israel’s “cemeteries of numbers” in which Israeli authorities are said to bury Palestinians–without ever returning the bodies to the families and where the name of the deceased is deliberately left off the grave

By Richard Edmondson

Ma’an News has today posted a story about a committee in Bethlehem formed to demand that Israel return the bodies of Palestinians slain in the current intifada. The “Palestine National Committee for Retrieving Bodies of Martyrs,” as it’s now known, was elected by the families of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces, the story says.

The Jewish state’s practice of refusing to return bodies to grieving families is not a new phenomenon. It did not begin with the present intifada, but has been ongoing for a number of years. The Ma’an article mentions that even prior to the start of the violence back in October, Israel was already holding a total of 262 bodies, some of them for an extremely long period of time. In fact one member of the committee, Ahmad Dabash, had a brother who was killed 14 years ago and whose body was never returned.

Back in November, Riyad Mansour, Palestine’s Permanent Observer at the UN, sent a letter to the president of the UN Security Council reporting that medical examinations conducted on Palestinian bodies which had been returned showed evidence of illegal organ harvesting.

“After returning the seized bodies of Palestinians killed by the occupying forces through October, and following medical examinations, it has been reported that the bodies were returned with missing corneas and other organs,” Mansour said.

He added that this amounted to confirmation of “past reports about organ harvesting.”

The accusation prompted an angry response from the Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon, who called it a “blood libel” and called upon the UN to “repudiate this sinister accusation,” yet the public charge by Mansour may have resulted in Israeli officials deciding to scale back their corpse inventory–for as Ma’an notes:

Israel in October decided to hold the bodies of Palestinians killed while carrying out attacks on Israeli military and civilians. Several have since been returned, and handovers of the bodies of Palestinians killed this month have been near-immediate.

Also Suleiman Shahin, a Palestinian attorney, says he has obtained a written pledge from an Israeli court to return an additional 119 bodies, including residents of Bethlehem, who “have been kept by Israel for lengthy periods of time,” according to the report.

So if Israel has retained custody of so many Palestinian bodies over time, the question is where are the cadavers being stored? Most likely in what are referred to as “cemeteries of numbers,” graveyards where the dead are identified by number only and where no inscription containing the name of the deceased can be found on any of the graves. This was discussed in an article by Palestinian writer Reham Alhelsi that was published back in 2012. Here is some of what she has to say on the subject:

The Zionist entity, with its “most moral army in the world”, is the only entity in the world that not only punishes the living for seeking freedom and justice, but punishes the dead as well. This entity of terror tries and imprisons Palestinian martyrs, withholds their bodies and uses them as a bargaining chip. Some Martyrs are held captive in the morgues while others are buried in what is known as the “Cemeteries of Numbers”, which are secret cemeteries in closed military areas with bare graves surrounded by stones, and each grave has only a number for identification on a metal plate. The graves are not deep enough and the bodies are buried in shallow sandy areas making them an easy prey to land erosions and stray animals. There are no tomb stones, no names, only numbers given to the humans who have names, homes and families.

Alhelsi goes on to report that four such cemeteries have been identified:

  1. A cemetery located near the Banat Yacoub Bridge in a military area bordering Lebanon and Syria. Allegedly it contains approximately 500 graves of Palestinians and Lebanese killed in 1982 and onward.
  2. A cemetery located in a closed military area between Jericho and Adam Bridge on the Jordan River. It is surrounded by a wall with an iron gate and a billboard inscribed “A Cemetery for the Dead of the Enemy”. It contains more than 100 graves bearing numbers from 5003 to 5007. It is unknown whether these are serial numbers assigned to individuals or, as Israel claims, administrative codes unrelated to the real number of buried bodies.
  3. The Cemetery of Refedeem in the Jordan Valley. No details unavailable.
  4. The Cemetery of Shuheitar, located near Wadi Al Hamam, a village north of Galilee. Most of the bodies in this cemetery belong to victims killed in the Jordan Valley in the years 1965 to 1975. In the north side of this cemetery, 30 graves are divided between two rows, while the remaining 20 are situated in the central area. Shamefully, all these graves are sandy and shallow, which when exposed to rain, allows bodies to be vulnerable and dragged by stray animals.

What would be the explanation for Israel’s desire to have the bodies in these cemeteries identified by number only? Is it to try and conceal the crime of organ harvesting in the event a new scandal should erupt? That’s a possibility, certainly, but my guess is it might also have something to do with the Judaic curse known asyimakh shemo, or “may his name be obliterated.” The curse is believed to date back to the origins of Purim, the story told in the Book of Esther, although there is also a passage in Deuteronomy in which the ancient Israelites are instructed to “blot out all memory of Amalek from under heaven” (Deuteronomy 25:19).

Did one or more rabbis in Israel appeal to the government to “blot out the names” of all Palestinians killed while resisting the occupation? Hard to say for sure, but one slightly strange thing made note of by Alhelsi is the rather curious manner in which the Israelis seem to have merged the concepts of “death” and “detention.” Again, keep in mind her article was published back in 2012:

These martyrs were kidnapped after their death and their bodies held captive ever since. Many have been in captivity since decades, such as martyr Ali al-Ja’fari from Dheisheh refugee camp, who was killed while in Israeli detention during the Nafhah hunger strike in 1980. Some of the martyrs were “tried” after their death and “are serving their sentences”, such as martyr Mohammad Al-Mansi whose family was told that their dead son was sentenced to 14 years in jail. Other martyrs are imprisoned for no reason, families speculate because the bodies of their children show signs of execution and are withheld to conceal that or to hide the organ theft operations the Israeli army has been conducting for decades on Palestinian martyrs. Family members are either asked to identify the martyr but not allowed to take the body back home or are informed by the IOF that their child is dead and is kept in “detention”. This immoral violation is meant as a punishment, not only for the dead, but as a collective punishment for families who are not given the chance to say goodbye or cry at the tomb of their beloved one. These “Cemeteries of Numbers” represent the disrespect the Zionist entity has to all known humane values and principles. But it is not only the Zionist entity that is the criminal here, but the so-called free world that talks continuously of human rights and of human dignity but is blind and deaf to the immoral actions of the immoral Zionist entity. The martyrs must be respected and laid to rest in a dignified manner, not be held captive in their own homeland, and the families must be able to mourn their children and give them a decent burial.

At least 300 Palestinian martyrs are held captive in these cemeteries and morgues (list).

“Our demand to return the bodies of the martyrs to their families is humane, and activities will continue until our demand is achieved,” said Ahmad Dabash, the committee member whose brother’s body has never been returned.

The committee’s activities are expected to include the setting up of a permanent protest tent as well as the printing up of posters of Palestinians who have killed and whose bodies have not been returned.

’ISIS’ Sanctioned Organ Harvesting in Document Taken in US Raid

Local Editor 

“ISIS” had authorized the harvesting of human organs, raising concerns the extremist group could be trafficking body parts.

 "ISIS" Sanctioned Organ Harvesting in Document Taken in US Raid

The previously undisclosed ruling by the group’s scholars was discovered in a document retrieved by US Special Forces in a raid in eastern Syria in May.

“The apostate’s life and organs don’t have to be respected and may be taken with impunity,” the document reads.

“Organs that end the captive’s life if removed: The removal of that type is also not prohibited.”

The document is in the form of a fatwa, or religious ruling from the so-called “ISIS’s” Research and Fatwa Committee which provided religious sanction to do so.

Iraq had previously accused “ISIS” of harvesting and trafficking human organs for profit.

US officials said the records that were seized had given the US government a deep look into how “ISIS” organizes, raises funds and codifies laws for its followers.

Iraq’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mohamed Ali Alhakim, told Reuters the documents should be examined by the UN Security Council as evidence that “ISIS” could be trafficking in organs to raise cash.

The May raid in Syria, which resulted in the death of “ISIS” top financial official Abu Sayyaf and the capture of his wife, netted seven terabytes of data in the form of computer hard drives, thumb drives, CDs, DVDs and papers, said Brett McGurk, US President Barack Obama’s Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter “ISIL”, in an interview.

Abu Sayyaf was a Tunisian militant whose real name was Fathi ben Awn ben Jildi Murad al-Tunisi.

US officials had previously described the Abu Sayyaf raid and some of the documentation seized.

But until now, none of the actual documents had been released – aside from materials illustrating “ISIS’s” trafficking in antiquities, made public at an event at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in September.

Once Again, Suspected Israeli organ trafficker arrested in Turkey: reports

December 05, 2015  /  Gilad Atzmon

A suspected Israeli organ trafficker who was wanted on an Interpol red notice has been arrested at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport.

http://www.dw.com

Boris Volfman was arrested at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport on suspicion of organ trafficking and fraud after flying from Bangkok on Friday night, Turkey’s Dogan news agency reported.

The Ukrainian-born Israeli citizen reportedly came to Turkey to harvest organs from desperate Syrian refugees, the daily Vatan newspaper reported.

A court on Saturday ordered his extradition to Israel after a 40-day arrest period.

There was no comment from Turkish or Israeli authorities concerning Volfman’s arrest.

Turkish media reported an investigation has been launched to determine his contacts in Turkey.

Local media outlets reported Boris’ last name as both Volfman and Walker.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers: Israel’s Refusal to Turn Over the Bodies of Palestinian Dead

Posted on 

A Palestinian father waits for the body of his 13-year-old son, Abdelrahman Obeidallah, the day after he was killed by Israeli forces.

Below you’ll find some information I’ve gathered about a policy the Israelis have of holding onto the remains of some Palestinians, refusing to return the bodies to their families for proper burial.

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian dead, and its impact on the living, is being questioned once again as the government continues to withhold the bodies of 22 Palestinians killed following attacks on Israelis during the month of October.

The refusal to turn over the dead to their families — a policy that Israeli authorities supposedly halted near the end of the Second Intifada — has provoked controversy among Israeli officials and led tomass protests in the occupied West Bank.

And see also:

Here is an excerpt:

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Authority representative at the United Nations claimed that other bodies which had been transferred to them “were returned with organs missing, after the occupying forces harvested organs from the Palestinian victims.”…

Palestinian Permanent Observer to the UN Riyad Mansour submitted a formal complaint against Israel on Wednesday, alleging that it had returned terrorists’ bodies with organs missing.

“A medical examination conducted on bodies of Palestinians returned after they were killed by the occupying power found that they were missing organs,” Mansour claimed in the letter.

Israel’s UN ambassador accused Mansour of “blood libel.” It is actually not a “libel” at all:

Did Hiss harvest organs from the body of Rachel Corrie? The answer appears to be yes:

On March 14, during the first round of hearings in the Corries’ civil suit, Hiss admitted under oath that he had lied about the presence of an American official during the autopsy of Rachel Corrie. He also conceded to taking “samples” from Corrie’s body for “histological testing” without informing her family. Just which parts of Corrie’s body Hiss took remains unclear; despite Hiss’s claim that he “buried” the samples, her family has not confirmed the whereabouts of her missing body parts.

“It’s so hard to know that Rachel’s body wasn’t respected,” Rachel’s sister, Sarah, told me. “Doctor Hiss and the Israeli government knew what our family’s wishes were. The fact that our wishes were disregarded and a judge hasn’t done anything is absolutely horrifying.”

Israel and its supporters would do well to drop the accusations of “blood libel” in the current climate, especially if the Jewish state plans to continue its policy of withholding the bodies of Palestinians.

 

’Israel’ Harvesting Palestinian Martyrs’ Organs!

Local Editor

The Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations revealed that the apartheid “Israeli” regime is harvesting the organs of Palestinians martyred in the occupied territories.


Riyad Mansour said in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday that the bodies of the Palestinians killed by “Israel” are “returned with missing corneas and other organs, further confirming past reports about organ harvesting by the occupying power.”

“A medical examination conducted on bodies of Palestinians returned after they were killed by the occupying power found that they were missing organs,” Mansour wrote in the letter.

The Palestinian envoy further protested “Israel’s” “persistent aggression against the Palestinian people” over the past month and Tel Aviv’s “insistence on use of violent force and oppressive measures.”

The issue of organ theft by “Israel” was first brought to the fore in a report published by Sweden’s most highly-circulated daily Aftonbladet in 2009.

US daily The New York Times also said in an August 2014 report that transplant brokers in “Israel” have pocketed enormous sums of money. Based on the Times analysis of major organ trafficking cases since 2000, “Israelis” have played a ‘disproportionate role’ in organ trafficking.

According to the latest figures by the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 74 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of “Israeli “forces since the beginning of October.

The bodies of the Palestinian victims are most often held in “Israeli” custody for long periods of time before they are returned to relatives.

After Oil, ISIL Has New Source of Funding: Organ Trafficking

ISIL militants

Local Editor

It has been well known that the Takfiri group operating in Iraq and Syria, ISIL relies on oil sales as a source of funding.

However, it seems there are other sources to fund the terrorist group, including trafficking human organs, the US-based media website Al-Monitor reported earlier this month.

 

The website quoted an otolaryngologist, Siruwan al-Mosuli, as saying that he lately noticed unusual movement within medical facilities in Mosul.

“Information then leaked about organ selling. Surgeries take place within a hospital and organs are quickly transported through networks specialized in trafficking human organs,” Al-Monitor cited Mosuli as saying.

He said that the organs come from fallen fighters who were quickly transported to the hospital, injured people who were abandoned or individuals who were kidnapped.

Organ sales yield large profits, Mosuli added, noting that a specialized mafia is engaged in these operations, in addition to medical institutions working in other countries.

Without coordination among these parties, such a trade cannot be sustained, he said.

According to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the organization sells bodies and organs of injured people they arrest.

The ISIL terrorists control some parts of Syria and Iraq. They are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control. ISIL militants have terrorized and killed people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.

The US-based media website also reported other sources of funding, including imposing taxes on residents, drug trafficking, selling humans and human smuggling rings.

Besides supporting terrorists in Syria, Turkey has a sideline business trafficking human organs

Turkish Hospitals Traffick Injured Syrian Citizens’ Organs

http://axisoflogic.com/artman/publish/Article_66384.shtml

Were it not for the well-documented terrorism and atrocities that we know are being committed by Turkey’s Erdogan government in Syria, we might pass over as political fiction the hand-me-down news report (below) about injured Syrians being robbed of their organs when taken to Turkey’s public hospitals for treatment. But in the context of Turkey’s role in supporting and arming the terrorists to overthrow the Assad government in Syria and its history with trafficking human organs, there’s reason enough to take the report seriously.

The Turkish public health sector has a history of operating in international human organ smuggling for money. In 2010 The Guardian reported the theft of human organs by Yusuf Ercin Sonmez, a Turkish surgeon who was sought by Interpol in an international manhunt at the time. Sonmez has been indicted for illegally taking human organs for sale from patients in Kosovo and accused of the same in Azerbaijian and of being involved in an organ theft ring in Ecuador. In Kosovo, Sonmez was indicted for taking organs from Serb soldiers, captured in the 1998-1999 US war on Serbia and leaving them to die. Linked to Hashim Thaci, the US-backed Prime Minister of Kosovo, Sonmez had been repeatedly arrested for these crimes in Turkey but later released. According to The Guardian,

“Yilman Altun, 23, was the desperate young Turk who said he was promised a rich reward for his organ by a broker in Istanbul. Alongside him lay Bezalel Shafran, a 74-year-old Israeli who had paid £76,400 for the black-market kidney he hoped would prolong his life…
“According to an indictment released this week, the surgeon transferring the kidney between these strangers in the Medicus clinic in a deprived suburb near the Kosovan capital, Pristina, was Yusuf Ercin Sonmez, a 53-year-old medic…
“But it is Sonmez who prosecutors believe has been the central figure in the trafficking. The Turk has been repeatedly arrested for organ transplants in his native country, where colleagues describe him as an accomplished but rebellious surgeon. In 1998, Turkish TV, whose reporters posed as donors, found seven patients, mostly from Israel. Sonmez was later banned from working in Turkey’s public health sector…
“Since then he has been linked to clinics operating on donors and recipients from across the world. He has admitted to doing thousands of transplants, but says that his donors sign disclaimer forms declaring they are giving their organs for humanitarian purposes…
“Patients from Canada, Germany, Poland and Israel had received organ transplants at the clinic. But despite promises of payment of up to €20,000 ($33,000), the donors had left empty-handed.”

Arrested and Released If the reports cited below sound confusing, perhaps some of the original publishers meant them to be so.  Many of the news stories in western media tell only parts of the story, omit key elements or simply do not followup on the arrests. But when the reports by various news agencies are examined closely and integrated certain things become clear. For one, when the corporate media reports that a person has been “arrested” it doesn’t necessarily mean that he has been detained or prosecuted or imprisoned.
Yusef Sonmez was working with Moshe Harel, an Israeli, at the time of his “surgical attacks” in Medicus, a medical clinic owned by Lutfi Dervishiin in Kosovo where Sonmez and other doctors worked. Sonmez was the primary surgeon and Moshe Harel was known as “the fixer” for the organ theft&sell ring, recruiting or finding ‘donors’ and recipients for organ removal and transplant by Sonmez and a few other surgeons working for them.

Dr. Yusef Sonmez (L) and Moshe Harel

In 2008, Moshe Harel was arrested in Pristina but fled Kosovo “after he was released from detention.” Subsequently, Kosovo authorities issued an international arrest warrant for both, Sonmez and Harel which stated that at least 30 illegal kidney removals and transplants were carried out in the Pristina clinic in 2008. The police raided Medicus that year “after a Turkish man collapsed at Pristina airport waiting for a flight back to Istanbul after having a kidney removed.” Haaretz later reported,

“In 2008 investigators closed down the private health clinic where the  doctors worked as part of the initial investigation. Kosovo police  launched a raid triggered by suspicions that a Turkish man had sold his  kidney to an Israeli recipient after he appeared fatigued at Pristina  airport trying to board a flight to Turkey.”

On November 12, 2010 Haaretz followed an AP report stating that Interpol had issued an arrest warrant for Harel and Sonmez adding, “Two other doctors, Israeli national Zaki Shapira and Turkish national Kenan Demirkol are identified in the 46-page document as unindicted co-conspirators.”
On December 20, 2010 Haaretz reported that Moshe Harel was “on the run” and:

“Moshe Harel, an Israeli of Turkish descent, is known as “the fixer” of the alleged organ ring, for his suspected role in matching potential donors recruited in Turkey with recipients, many if not all of whom had connections with Israel.”

On January 12, 2011 Yusef Sonmez appeared again in Turkey. The BBC reported that Somnez was “arrested and bailed,” (i.e. released on bail by Turkish authorities in Istanbul) adding “The  [organ] donors, said to have come from Moldova, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkey  and to have lived in ‘extreme poverty or acute financial distress’, were allegedly transported to Pristina Airport.” It’s noteworthy that the BBC said 8 others were charged a year earlier but made no mention of Moshe Harel in their report.
CNN also reported that Yusef Sonmez was arrested in Istanbul on January 12, 2011 on the Interpol warrant but that “Sonmez was then released by the court pending trial.”
On February 10, 2011 the New York Times ran an article in defense of Sonmez (excerpts):

“ISTANBUL — For a surgeon wanted by Interpol and suspected of harvesting human organs for an international black-market trafficking ring, Dr. Yusuf Sonmez was remarkably relaxed as he sipped Turkish red wine in a bustling kebab restaurant facing the wind-whipped Sea of Marmara.
“Dr. Sonmez, refreshed from a ski trip to Austria, spoke last month while on a break from business trips to Israel and operations on cancer patients here.
“He boasts about the results of his kidney transplant operations, more than 2,400 by his count. He keeps friends (and, incidentally, investigators) up to date on his life via a blog and Web site.
“And in his seaside villa on the Asian side of Istanbul, he treasures a framed copy of a signed letter in 2003 from the Ministry of Health in Israel commending him for his life-saving aid to “hundreds of Israeli patients who are suffering from kidney diseases and awaiting transplants’.
“Of his surgical skills, he added, wryly, “I am the best in the world as long as my fingers aren’t broken.”

On May 25, 2012 Reuters reported that Moshe Harel was finally arrested in Israel on the Interpol warrant.

Moshe Harel arrested in Israel but not detained.

“Moshe Harel was arrested along with several other people in connection  with a parallel investigation in Israel, said the mission, known as  EULEX.
“Harel is a key suspect in a separate, but parallel,  investigation regarding the Medicus indictment, filed in June 2011,  charging him with the criminal offences of trafficking in persons and  organized crime,”
Reuters said the indictment stated Harel is, “An Israeli citizen [involved] in ‘identifying, recruiting  and transporting victims … ensuring the delivery of cash payments by electronic bank transfer” prior to surgery.”

“Police in  Kosovo accuse Israeli Harel of seeking out people in need of kidney  transplants and luring donors to Kosovo from Turkey and the poorer  countries of the former Soviet Union with the promise of 15,000 euros  ($20,000) in payment. It is not known whether they received the money.  The organs were then sold on for between 80,000 and 100,000 euros  ($100,000-$125,000).”

On the same day, AFP reported:

“Pristina – The suspected mastermind behind an organ trafficking network, sought for years by Kosovo authorities, has been arrested in Israel an EU prosecutor said on Thursday. ‘We have received information that Moshe Harel has been arrested in Israel on organ trafficking and other related offences,’ EU special prosecutor Jonathan Ratel said. ‘We are seeking confirmation with the Israeli authorities,’ he added.”

Also on May 25, 2012 Press TV, reported on the story of Somnez & Harel and discussed broader findings of organ trafficking in Israel:

“Reports earlier this week by Ha’aretz, indicate that at least 10 Israeli citizens were arrested for being members of an organ trafficking gang.  The Italian New Generation Foundation for Human Rights and the Everyone  Group has presented evidence indicating that Sinai locals harvest the  organs of the people they transfer to Israel. In this connection, a  number of mass graves have been found containing the corpses of Africans missing some of their organs.”

The Trial

Jonathan Ratel, EU’s Special Prosecutor in Kosovo

The trial in Kosovo took place in April, 2013, 5 years after the organ trafficking crimes were committed in Kosovo. Jonathan Ratel is a Canadian lawyer who serves as head of the European  Union’s Special Prosecution Office in Kosovo. He began his investigation in March 2010 and the trial began in September 2011 before three international judges. Ratel pieced together the complex case covering countries that ran through Kosovo, Turkey, Europe, Canada, US and Israel. The trial included testimony from 80 witnesses and Ratel’s closing arguments included 250 PowerPoint slides and lasted six-and-a-half hours.
On April 19, 2013 The Star (Canada) conducted a telephone interview with Ratel when he called this dark web of trafficking human organs, “the cruel harvest of the poor” and added, “The single motivating factor behind this enterprise was the opportunity for obscene profits available in the black market organ trade.”
On April 29, 2013 the New York Times published this:

“Five people were convicted Monday in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, in connection with an elaborate organ-trafficking network that lured poor  people to the country to sell their kidneys and other organs to wealthy  transplant recipients from Israel, the United States, Canada and  Germany. Organs sold for as much as $130,000 each.
“The defendants, all Kosovars, were tried before a panel of two  European Union judges and one Kosovar judge. A special prosecutor for  the union, Jonathan Ratel, called the case a landmark because doctors  had been convicted.
“Dr. Lutfi Dervishi, a urologist and the director of the clinic at  the center of the trafficking ring, was sentenced to eight years in  prison. His son Arban Dervishi was sentenced to seven years and three  months, and Dr. Sokol Hajdini, the clinic’s chief anesthesiologist, to  three years. Two other defendants received one-year suspended sentences.
“Mr. Ratel said the Dervishis were aided by Dr. Yusuf Sonmez, whom he called a notorious international organ trafficker. Dr. Sonmez is a  fugitive and may be in South Africa, Mr. Ratel said.”

On the Lam On April 29, 2013, The Star stated that Dr. Yusuf Sonmez and Moshe Harel, “remain at large, wanted under an Interpol ‘Red Notice’.”
On August 10, 2013, Friends of Kosovo reported, “Two foreign suspects in the case – Turkish doctor Yusuf Sonmez and  Moshe Harel, an Israeli citizen – are still listed as wanted by Interpol but remain at large.”
December 16, 2013 – According to Balkan Transitional Justice, defendants Sonmez and Harel cannot be tried in their absence and their prosecution depends on their extradition:

“Turkish doctor Yusuf Sonmez and Israeli citizen Moshe Harel, both  accused of people trafficking and organised crime, are listed as  fugitives wanted by Interpol and have been on the run since the  indictment in the case was raised in June 2011.
“But EULEX judge Malcolm Simmons said that he was ‘worried that little or almost nothing has happened since then’.”
“ ‘We can do little until the defendants are arrested,’ Simmons said at a  hearing in Pristina that was held to give an update on the  organ-trafficking case.
EULEX prosecutor Allen Cansick, said the  EU mission believes that ‘Harel is still in Israel,’ while ‘the mission  has information that Sonmez is travelling around the world.’
But  Cansick expressed hope that the men might be apprehended, saying that ‘“there are however possibilities they might be brought to Kosovo some  time later.’

Where have these two cretins gone? Where have they been in hiding and who is hiding them – since the time they walked from prosecution in Kosovo? Are  either or both being given secret asylum in Israel as in the past? Are they continuing their ghoulish work in Turkey, protected by the Erdogan government, robbing organs from injured Syrian civilian and military who’ve been sent there for treatment and from Syrian soldiers who have been captured by the terrorists? The latter would certainly fit with their work in Kosovo where they robbed captured Serb soldiers of their organs before Kosovo’s “freedom fighters” killed them. The following report from Fars News Agency tells of how the organ theft business is thriving in Turkey.

February 5, 2014 Fars News Agency Turkish Hospitals Traffick Injured Syrian Citizens’ Organs
According to a report by the Lebanese al-Safir daily, trafficking the injured Syrian people’s body organs is a phenomenon which has intensified in Turkish governmental hospitals.
Ahmad Abdulkarim Muhammad, a 19-year-old young Syrian, is one of  the victims of this phenomenon. He was injured in Syria in January and  was transferred to Antakya hospital in Southern Turkey and died after a  few days.
Despite being transferred to the hospital for head injuries, a  video released after his death shows that his abdomen has gone under  surgery operations which indicates stealing of his vital organs,  including kidneys, liver, etc.
Earlier reports also said that Turkish authorities are engaged in  trafficking body organs of injured Syrians that are taken to Turkey for  treatment.
The Lebanese newspaper al-Diyar reported that Turkish authorities  transfer young injured Syrians to certain hospitals in the Turkish  cities of Antakya and Iskenderun.
The report added that the Turks leave the injured Syrians alone to  die after their body organs are removed in the hospitals. The dead are  later sent to the Syrian border region to be buried.
Turkish doctors have confirmed that out of 62,000 injured Syrian  civilian and military people who were transported into Turkey, body  organs of over 15,600 of them were excised and their bodies were sent  back into Syria to be buried, al-Diyar stated.
Turkish officials have made no comments over the issue so far.
The Lebanese newspaper also states that the body organs, including  livers, kidneys and hearts are given to people waiting for treatment in  Turkey.
Al-Diyar said European scientific websites acknowledged that body  organ transplantation operations had increased in Turkey over the past  two years, since the beginning of the crisis in Syria.

Israeli MDs harvesting organs for international trafficking ring

Costa Rican authorities announced on Wednesday that they had broken up an international organ trafficking ring that worked with Israeli doctors and specialized in selling kidneys to patients in Israel and East Europe.

Costa Rica’s Attorney General’s Office said Israeli doctors had performed kidney-removal operations on some Costa Rican “donors” who sold their organs. Authorities also said the key suspect arrested in Costa Rica, a physician, had been in touch with Israeli doctors to match up Costa Rican kidney donors with Israeli recipients.

Performing such operations is a grave felony.

Costa Rican police together with Interpol are now investigating the case of a young woman who had been sent to Israel to donate a kidney, felt bad on the flight back, was taken off it at an interim stop and died.

Costa Rican authorities did not name any of the Israeli doctors alleged to be involved in the ring. Israel’s Health Ministry said it knew nothing about the affair.

In recent years Costa Rica has served as a destination for Israeli patients needing kidney transplants. The price for a kidney transplant on the black market is estimated at some NIS 700,000 per kidney.

San Jose police on Wednesday arrested Dr. Francisco Mora Palma, head of nephrology at the large Calderon Guardia Hospital, and raided a number of medical laboratories and clinics suspected of carrying out tests for the network’s doctors.

Attorney General Jorge Chavarria said the two people arrested − Mora Palma and an employee at Costa Rica’s Public Security Ministry − were the “tip of the iceberg” of the organ trafficking network.

Mora Palma was in touch with Israeli doctors and tested the suitability of the local residents whose organs were to be harvested in Israel, the Attorney General’s Office said.

Chavarria said the network’s doctors sent some of the “donors” to Israel to undergo the operation to have a kidney removed, while others had it removed in Costa Rica.

Sources involved in the investigation said they know of cases in which Israeli patients had been flown to Costa Rica to undergo surgery, without reporting to the health authorities.

Israel’s Health Ministry said in response to the report from Costa Rica that “the cases mentioned are not familiar and the Health Ministry does not know of them.”

It added: “Since 2008, when the New Organ Transplant Law was enacted, the health maintenance organizations and insurance companies stopped funding organ transplants ‏(which could be suspected of organ trafficking‏) for Israelis abroad. If Israelis did have transplants, as reported by the Costa Rica media, then they were funded privately, illegally and without the ministry’s agreement.”

About a year ago an Israeli organ-trafficking network was exposed in Israel. Its members used to fly Israeli patients for transplants in Kosovo and Sri Lanka. Other states suspected of having organ trafficking networks are Ecuador and Kazakhstan.

Chavarria also said Mora Palma and his associates used the hospital’s data bank to find suitable kidney harvesting candidates. These were usually needy men and women, who received $16,000-$20,000 for a kidney.

“We see these people as victims of an international crime ring,” the prosecutor said.

Israeli permits needed

If organ transplants arranged by the Costa Rican network were performed in Israel, as alleged, then the “donors” from Costa Rica appear to have obtained a permit for the harvest in Israeli hospitals, along with the approval of the Health Ministry committee that authorizes organ donations from the living.

The committee authorizes donations from living donors who are not related, and is in charge of ascertaining that the donor was acting for humanitarian motives and did not receive payment for his organ.

However, in September 2005 the committee allowed an organ donation that had been presented as humanitarian, but after the death of the donor, a 38-year-old man from Ganei Tikva, it transpired that he had sold his kidney.

Until the New Organ Transplant Law was enacted, the HMOs sued to provide funding for Israelis’ organ transplants abroad, both as part of the complementary insurance and as part of state health insurance. This included states in which patients were required to pay the organ donors, like China and the Philippines.

However, since the law was passed, the number of Israeli transplants funded by HMOs abroad has been significantly reduced. Today they are performed only in states who allow organ donations from cadavers, and only if the hospital performing the operation signs a form ascertaining it does not deal with organ trafficking.

Thus, HMOs have approved funding for kidney transplants abroad only from cadavers in the United States, Russia and Latvia.

In 2007, 143 Israelis received kidney transplants abroad, but according to Health Ministry statistics, that number dropped to 35 in 2011. While transplants abroad have decreased, the new Organ Transplant Law has also led to a 50 percent increase in kidney transplants from live donors in Israel. Until two years ago Colombia performed 35 to 40 liver and heart transplants a year on Israeli patients in Medellin. But in the past year only four Israelis had transplants there, due to the restrictions imposed by Israel’s National Transplant and Organ Donation Center.

A senior official in the Clalit HMO recently asked Health Ministry director General Ronni Gamzu to arrive at a memorandum of understanding between Israel and Colombia to promote organ transplants there. The request was made ahead of Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos’ visit to Israel last week.

At the same time a group of patients awaiting transplants in Colombia have asked Health Minister Yael German to advance this initiative.

The Health Ministry has not decided on the issue yet.
