The Body Snatchers Have Seen These and Laughed

The revelation from the Swedish newspaper about Israel’s systematic murder-for-organs of Palestinians should continue to disturb each and every human being.  I thought I had seen enough pictures.  Then I bumped into a website, Palestinian Mothers, and I grew weak with horror and anger.

There is a long article I ended up reading, Kawther Salam – The Body Snatchers of Israel – which puts together a long list of people who were murdered and remain missing, perhaps buried in secret graves.  I advise you to follow the link only if you think you are strong enough to see the result of such savagery.

This one photo will haunt me forever.
