    Here we have a story of uncovering an organ traffiking ring by police. something that has NOT been covered up. something REPORTED by a news source (not "the media" - there is no government controlled monolithic media in Israel). And it is twisted into something else. So typical a response from conspiracy trolls. First of all this news, while sad, does not corroborate the swedish story. Second of all even if the swedish story WAS true (which it appears not to be) it is the context that can or cannot make it antisemitic. No one says Jews or Israelis are immunue from evil people doing evil things - but does that mean that the Jewish people or the Israeli state is evil? Of course not. A story like this haaretz story tells you that the state works to root out such criminal activity - as it should. clear?
