    As an organ donor coordinator, let me stress this to the genius who wrote that he still suspects dead pals were used. It is IMPOSSIBLE to harvest organs from dead bodies. Let me repeat myself: organs cannot be taken from people who are shot dead. Why is not a single Israeli physician or journalist demanding to know why this basic fact is overlooked by this so called journalist? When a person dies in a medical situation their organz may be harvest IF they meet strike critieria and remain on constant oxygen. The only thing that may be retrieved from a dead pal on the stree tis his or her corneas and that must be within 6 hours and a long list of medical rule out ascertained--which can ONLY be ascertained from family members who can answer questions about behavior such as homosexual activity, homemade tattoes, drug use, and a laundry list of ailments, the least of which is malaria--a common disease in the middle east. So the entire premise is absolutely irrefutably off balance.
