Why is America helping Israeli army masacre palestinian children in order to steal their organs. Why is the american media covering up of Israeli massacres of Palestinian children in order to steal their organs. Why aren't American reporters trying to investigate israeli masacres of Palestinian children to steal their organs

The American media has investigated !!!! They found the story to be nothing more than propaganda being spread by racially motivated hate groups from within the Palestinian Arab community and completely void of facts, substance or truth!

Wow, imagine that !!

But it would be appreciated if you could follow the rules and stick to the subject of the blog.

Besides- it's really not appropriate to FREEGAZACHILDREN when their parents are murdering each other daily in the name of Islam.

What would you suggest-UNRWA take all the children of Gaza from their murderous radical parents and deport them to camps in Jordan, Syria or Lebanon??

A once in a lifetime pilgrimage, an opportunity for preparing for change,that comes only at the crossroads of conviction; "the only thing that molds your mind in a constructive way is when you've been in death's grasp; all reason ,and logic coalesce into a finite context; thus altruism is given birth upon a pragmatic foundation where lamenting mortality no longer exist; this applies to all life's virtuous pathways with age a non-factor; but just the prerequisite of a strong vast,and open pointillism focused on moral religious beliefs absent of myopia; may the religious please heed these words;

we expect Cnn to do more in its coverage of the stealing of palestinian organs. this is a scandal. this is unprecedented. The west asks questions about the causes of international terrorism. Incidents like these will only create problems between the west and the muslims and who is responsible?

Filipe you are lying again.

No formal investigation has been carried out.

If Israel can prove this story is untrue, then it should.

But it appears Israel only wants to have the allegations silenced!!!!

Filipe   August 24th, 2009 9:19 am ET

John A,

Are you confused ??? It happened 19 years ago!

Filipe   August 24th, 2009 10:10 am ET

John A,

Maybe it works different for you in the US.

But in the vast majority of the world, if someone makes an allegation, the burden of proof is upon the accuser to provide evidence to support the accusation.

Is it not like this in the US ??

Is this why you think you make any wild a$$ accusation you want and then walk away without priding any evidence??

Sorry- but it doesn't work like that anywhere but in your small little world.

John A   August 24th, 2009 11:20 am ET

Israel denied the allegations 19 years ago. Denial is not an investigation. Show me the investigation Filipe.

John A   August 24th, 2009 2:05 pm ET

Actually Filipe when serious allegations are made and investigation follows. Remeber Abu Ghraib?

Israel will not allow an independent body to investigate.

After a huge amount of allegations against Israel, Israel has investigated itself and found itself innocent. Amazing!!

Too many horrific stories are coming out of Israel and Israel can never demonstrate its innocence to the world. Why is that??????????????

Why are all allegations brushed under the carpet???
Why are all who have the courage to speak up accused as being anti Semitic.

There is no smoke without fire and so much smoke is pouring out of Israel, somebody better investigate the fire before those radical Zionists set the world ablaze with their apartheid agenda.

John A,

I don't play your game- and apparently neither do the Israelis-

You are the one making the allegation--Neither I nor the Israelis need to prove anything to you. You fail to believe anything other than is what inside your own feeble little mind anyway.

Look it up for yourself if your that concerned about it-even the original articles on the subject said the body had been autopsied.

But that's not good enough for you. But you know what--no one needs to meet your expectations -because you are irrelevant. No one cares what you think--

I don't watch slide shows. Sorry. I want people treated kindly. Everyone. All political groups. All skin colors. All genders. All geographical positions. The world has to grow since we have bigger ships and even jets. Then I look at those who are not good, unkind. Then I make my judgement. Unkind, hurtful people are bad. It seems basic to me. Who is fair to everyone. That is not rocket science. God is big, but that takes little gray matter. Who treats others unkindly? Who is most equal. Who want to progress and not move backwards. Many things to consider. Who can get beyond the old crap.
