The Report that Broke the Camel’s Back
Last week Aftonbladet published an article, reproducing anti-Semitic gossip reminiscent of Medieval blood libels, and connecting it to the organ trade scandal in the United States.
This isn’t the first time Aftonbladet has published anti-Israeli articles, but this kind of racist content is very rare. For the Government Press Office, the publication was the proverbial straw. Yediot reports that, as a consequence, it has decided not to issue press cards for journalists working for Aftonbladet until the issue has been resolved.
Judging by the tone employed by the editor-in-chief of Aftonbladet, that means it’ll be quite a while until any reporters from his paper will receive a hekhsher from the GPO.
