Swedish PM: No apology to Israel in regards to article Swedish newspaper reveals Israeli army murders Palestinians for their organs

Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt

August 23, 2009
The Swedish prime minister says his country will not apologize for an article in a Swedish newspaper accusing Israel of killing Palestinians to plunder their organs.

“No one can demand that the Swedish government violates its own constitution. Freedom of speech is an indispensable part of Swedish society,” Fredrik Reinfeldt was quoted as telling the Swedish news agency TT on Saturday.

Swedish top diplomat has also ruled out any plan to apologize to Israel.

“The government does not review individual articles or what is published in the press. That is not our task,” Foreign Minister Carl Bildt told Swedish radio news.

In an article titled “They plunder the organs of our sons”, the daily Aftonbladet said Israeli soldiers abduct young Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip and return their bodies to their families after removing their organs.

“Our sons are used as involuntary organ donors,” relatives of Khalid a Palestinian man from Nablus told Donald Bostrom who authored the report, which was published on Aug. 17.

Bostrom has told Press TV that an international war crimes investigation awaits Israel over its soldiers’ harvest of organs from dead Palestinians.

The freelance journalist underscored that the International Court of Justice — the principal judicial body of the United Nations — will likely investigate the report.

And we don’t want anyone in their digging out the truth now do we?

Israel delays press credentials for Sweden team

August 23 2009

Israel denies press credentials for the Swedish daily Aftonbladet amid a row over an article accusing Israeli troops of involvement in an organ theft scandal.

The newspaper published They plunder the organs of our sons last Tuesday, suggesting that the Israeli army kidnapped and killed young Palestinians to harvest their organs.

The article, authored by freelance journalist Donald Bostrom, sparked outrage among Israeli officials who immediately called on Sweden to condemn the report.

The Swedish Embassy in Tel Aviv called the report “appalling,” but Sweden’s Foreign Ministry refused to condemn it, saying the country has a “free press.”

Now two journalists for the Scandinavian daily will have to wait for Israeli press credentials, CNN reported.

The reporter and cameraman from Aftonbladet were told Sunday when they applied for press accreditation that the process could take up to 90 days and that the newspaper’s decision to run the organ harvesting article last week will be taken into consideration when the request is considered.

“We have no duty to supply them with press cards immediately; we have 90 days to decide about their status,” said Danny Seaman, the head of Israel’s press office.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the Swedish government to condemn the article.

“We’re not asking the Swedish government for an apology, we’re asking for their condemnation,” an official – speaking on condition of anonymity – quoted Netanyahu as saying.

Typical behavior of Israel. They also block all reporters during the war on Gaza as well. Can’t let anyone find out the truth. If they are blocking reporters you bet your ass they have something to hide.
Israeli soldiers and Israel itself are responsible for many horrible atrocities against the Palestinians.  This is just one more.
Israel has never treated the Palestinians with any respect whatsoever.
Israel has never apologized to anyone so why should anyone apoligise to them for enlightening people.
Israel attempts to manipulate foreign media and countries to support their terrorizing the Palestinians.
Those who support Israel should be taking a good, long,  hard look in the Mirror.
From the conception if Israel in the Middle East there has been war,  “Caused by Israel”.
Congratulations to Sweden for standing up for the Free Press and Justice. It is a rare thing indeed to see any country honestly stand up against Israel.
Other countries whimper and whine and buckle to Israels wishes.
They swallow the lies Israel spreads and support Israels atrosities against the Palestinians.
US  one of main offenders.
Any country who supports Israel should hang their head in shame.
The International Court of Justice should launch an investigation. A crime has been committed by Israel yet again.  One of many.
Criminals should not be allowed to go free.
One has to wonder WHY Israel gets so much support.
Their country should also be opened up to Weapons Inspectors as well.
