    The facts about Israel and human organ transplant are well-known, verifiable and undisputed. The basic issue is the reluctance of many Israeli's/Jews to donate organs, the average rate of donors in the general population in western countries is about 30%, in Israel it only one-tenth of that, about 3%. The European Union Organ Donor Network expelled Israel because the country was willing to accept organs but refused to donate. The Greenberg National Institute of Forensic Medicine AKA Abu Kabir Institute is the premier location for conducting autopsies in Israel. During the 1980's and 1990's body parts were removed and used for organ transplants and this has been confirmed by the Director & Chief Pathologist Yehuda Hiss, both in public and in writing. Both Israeli insurance companies and the government have paid for Israeli's to undergo operations involving organ transplants outside of the country, so called "transplant tourism".
