Arab blood libel against Jews alive, well and updated

Remember how the Jews used to be accused of poisoning the wells during the Bubonic Plague?

Palestinians seem to be students of history.
RAMALLAH, June 13 (Xinhuanet) -- Palestinian chief of Environment Authority Yousef Abu Safeya accused Israel Monday of glutting the Palestinian markets with carcinogenic canned juice.

'Such kind of drinks are specifically produced for the Palestinian consumers in the Gaza Strip.' Abu Safeya told a weekly session of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC).

He pointed out that the Palestinian security services had recently seized a number of shipments, including canned juice containing a carcinogenic substance.

He added that the Egyptian authorities impounded two Israeli trucks carrying child toys polluted with carcinogenic and radioactive substances at the Rafah commercial crossing on the borders with Israel in March.
UPDATE: The specific carcinogenic substance that Israel is inflicting on unsuspecting Palestinians has been identified:

It is saccharine.

For some reason, no one is saying that the PA is inciting terror when it makes classic anti-semitic claims like this with a straight face.
