In November, I noted that the Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor accused Israel of stealing organs from dead Palestinians in Gaza, and mentioned that it was medically impossible to transplant organs from dead bodies.

In December, after there was no public pushback against the NGO's accusations, Hamas claimed the same thing, saying that bodies returned from Israel to Gaza had "evidence" of stolen organs. I went into a bit more detail how this is impossible and the media that parroted these accusations without mentioning the science were allies of Hamas.

But I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. So why should they listen to me?

At the Times of Israel, David weill,  a doctor who specializes in organ transplants, sets the record straight:
I have spent over three decades in the transplant field, most recently directing the Lung Transplant Program at Stanford University. I find these accusations alarming, though wholly unsubstantiated. We in the transplant community take illegal organ trafficking extremely seriously.

Like many people around the world, especially health care workers, I am devastated by the loss of innocent civilian lives, in this conflict and others. But seemingly in wanting to keep the narrative alive that there is moral equivalence between what Hamas has done and how Israel has responded, we now hear from the same sources that Israel is stealing body parts from people who have long been dead, including allegedly exhuming dead bodies from gravesites as a source of organs for transplantation. Never mind, I suppose, that the organs would be unusable, if something this outlandish were tried.

Under the best of circumstances in a controlled hospital environment, procuring viable organs for transplant is complicated, a primary reason being that there is a long waiting list. A battlefield is not the place to attempt to expand the donor pool and has never been suggested as such by transplant professionals.

But let’s not let the medical facts get in the way of tantalizing propaganda. Until now, no similar credible accusations have ever been made against Israel, a country where transplant has been performed for decades carefully and responsibly without a hint of any unethical practices.
Will this slow down the blood libels? Of course not. 

Facts are strictly optional nowadays. And even in mainstream media, only the facts that support the viewpoint of the writer or reporter are allowed to be mentioned.
